About Tishomingo, Chief to the Chickasaws

Chickasaw War Chief. Probably born in what is now Lee County, Mississippi. As a young man he served with General Anthony Wayne against the Shawnee in the Old Northwest and received a silver medallion from President Washington for his service. During the War of 1812, he served under Andrew Jackson. It is known that he received two tracts of land under the Pontotoc Treaty of 1832. After his service, he took several trips to Philadelphia and Washington DC before retiring to raise livestock and hunt until white settlers encroached on his land. New treaties took away land and rights from the Chickasaw until 1837 when a final treaty forced them to remove to Indian Territory (present day Oklahoma) with the Choctaw. About 4000 Chickasaw moved west in the winter of 1837-1838. Tishomingo died on the Trail of Tears probably at Fort Caffee on the south bank of the Arkansas River near present day Little Rock. He was about 100 years old. Tishomingo County, Mississippi is named for him. (bio by: [fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=46780914" target="_blank Iola)] Maintained by: Find A Grave Record added: Oct 23, 2002
