Biography

Birth

Jim was born about 1855 in Wisconsin. (1910 Fed. census)

Name

His Hocąk name is given as WauSeeKah (1910 Ind. census) or Wa-se-ca (Church Recs.), which is for Wāzíga, "Pine". This is from wāzí, "pine"; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. The word wāzí is often used to denote pines generally, but otherwise it specifically denotes the white pine, Pinus strobus L. (Kindscher & Hurlburt)

Marriage

He had been married to Pet (surname unknown) since at least 1880, and they had at least one child: James Whitepine (b. 15 Jun 1881).

Death

Jim died between 30 June 1913 and 30 June 1914, at which later date his wife Pet is listed as a widow.
