This is one of a series of informational cards created by the Linworth United Methodist Church and Historical Society sharing the history of Bill Moose and the Wyandot Indians in central Ohio. This card includes a personal narrative by Bill Moose and describes his family’s refusal to leave during the 1843 removal of the Wyandot Indians from Ohio to Kansas. They relocated from Upper Sandusky to an area in the present-day Highbanks Metro Park.

Bill Moose was believed to be the last full-blooded member of the Wyandot tribe to live in Ohio. He spent many years living in a cabin at the corner of Morse and Indianola roads, and was well-liked by people throughout central Ohio. He passed away in 1937 just two months shy of his 100th birthday, and an estimated 20,000 people paid their respects at his wake and funeral.
