  • Biography/Notes:
    Named after his grandfather, who served as a chief in Kansas following the Myaamia removal from Indiana, Joseph lived a short life of fourteen years. His family greatly mourned his passing, as evidenced by the relatively intricate marker made for his grave, which includes a cross and carved lamb. Both his and his father's graves are some of the oldest located on the eastern side of the current Myaamia tribal cemetery grounds. His final resting place is located about one mile directly north of his allotted land.
