the last of the Wyandots

Buried beneath a stone monument overlooking the Scioto River he loved is Bill Moose, the Wyandot Indian whose native name was Kihue. Bill Moose died just two months short of reaching his 100th birthday. Read the story of this Native American born in 1837 who helped the immigrants settle the land; later he traveled the world with the Sells Brothers Circus, and he was a person we certainly would call eccentric today. 10,000 people attended his funeral! What a story!
