Greetings, Can you establish your (Tecumseh) descent? There are some of us in Ohio I am sure. I do not know if there is an Tecumseh does Ohio page.I have been told that we are related to ( his taken name)Tenskwatawa as you know was Tecumtha's twin brother. Tenskwatawa came back here ( from "they say" Canada )(actually what is now Michigan) to Ohio in 1826 and later was "they say"soon after relocated to Kansas with his tribe and died in 1837.Where a lot of this research loses credence is in thinking that (1)All "Indians"did not look alike to the whites. (2) That the Shawnee always stayed Shawnee. (& did not live with ,or visit other "tribes", such as Pottawatomis.)(3) Tribes were groups of "other Indians" instead of our Families(our Brother-in- law, Fathers,Daughters,you know ,like "Normal White Folk.") I hope that I have enlightened, if not entertained, Samuel
