Actually, an excellent overview.
... of, Native Americans of Ohio.

I agree with everyone here, this is a great overview of info.  & I think I just found something else that may also help Ohio, and history of Natives within the Ohio Valley, etc.  Is a disertation for PHD (


Written by : Malcolm B. Brown, that took 6 years to complete.  sources appear mostly from old books of 1800's, so from a genealogical standpoint may not be of a lot of use, but is definately good for Understanding the Native people that lived within this state, and the whys and hows of "not there" anylonger.   There are some references to Lenape and others and includes some info on who their families were, and where they moved from and to. (not a lot, but some info). Is a very good historical read, from a "traditional standpoint view of native culture, ways, living, etc)

I agree with Pip,  it's a great overview.   Written to be easily read.  And I bet most people will pick up a new fact or so.   

How in the world had I not pieced together the following group: Algonquian speakers were the Shawnee, Delaware, Miami and Ottawa.

(Or at my age,  maybe I just forgot.)

Thanks Pip!
Nice - good information seems like - my mothers fathers people came through Ohio and stayed there for a while, helped get towns started near nowadays Columbus so they were some of the first whites there - and interacted with these indigenous folks - thank you
Narvarro, not sure but I think the link I just posted may interest you too.
