Huron Cemetery

Wyandotte National Burial Ground

The following is a list of individuals who are believed to have been buried in the Huron Indian Cemetery. The list is derived from the journals of William Walker, Jr., from various tribal and family records found in the Connelley Collection at the Kansas City, Kansas Public Library, from William E. Connelley’s 1896 survey of the cemetery, and from the Kansas City, Kansas City Clerk’s Mortality Records, July 9, 1892 et seq. In many cases, the actual grave locations are not presently known. Those individuals who have marked or identifiable grave locations are noted with an asterisk (*). It should be noted that this list is by no means complete’; estimates on the number of burials in the cemetery run from approximately 400 to over 600.

End Notes

1. Isaiah Walker’s stepfather and guardian. He arrived in Wyandott on May 3, 1849, on his way from Ohio to the California gold fields.

2. Executed by firing squad for the murder of Curtis Punch.

3. Death was attested to on September 14, 1870, but name appears on 1871 tribal roll.

4. Brother-in-law of Andrus B. Northrup. His burial was strongly protested by Helena Conley, as he was not a Wyandot. This resulted in her being taken to jail.

5. Cannot be Joel W. Garrett, as he is buried in the Garrett family plot in Upper Sandusky, Ohio.

6. Agency blacksmith to the Wyandot Nation.

7. Murdered by Isaiah Zane

8. Grave was moved to Woodlawn Cemetery on December 30, 1893.

9. Grave was moved to Woodlawn Cemetery on December 30, 1893.

10. Murdered by her husband.

11. Last burial in the Huron Indian Cemetery.

12. Murdered by Kilibuck Standingstone in a drunken brawl.

13. Death was attested to on September 14, 1870, but name appears on 1881 tribal roll.

14. Murdered by John Coon, Jr. and Martin Big-Arms.

15. Death was attested to on September 14, 1870, but name appears on 1881 tribal roll.

18. Administrator was appointed for her estate on January 19, 1860, but name appears on 1871 tribal roll.

19. This tombstone erroneously reads 1824 – 1903.

20. Either Connelley somehow missed this headstone in his survey, or it was erected after 1896. The 1855 Wyandot tribal roster indicates his age as 9 months rather than 3 years.

21. May be in Woodlawn Cemetery.
