Treaty of Upper Sandusky (1842)

From Ohio History Central

The Treaty of Upper Sandusky was signed on March 17, 1842. In this treaty, the last group of Wyandot natives living in Ohio gave up their claim to 109,144 acres of land in northwestern Ohio. They agreed to move to a reservation in modern-day Kansas.

The United States government agreed to give the Wyandots ten thousand dollars to help them move to their new homes along with annual payments of $17,500. The American government also would pay five hundred dollars for the support of a school and provide a blacksmith, an interpreter, and an agent who could help the tribe in dealing with the government.
