Here are some books with information about the Indian days of Fort Wayne

"Valley of the upper Maumee River, with historical account of Allen County and the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana (1889)"

"The pictorial history of Fort Wayne, Indiana : a review of two centuries of occupation of the region about the head of the Maumee River"

I would look at the genealogies at the Allen County Library for the best information on the genealogies of the Indian in Fort Wayne.

Chief Little Turtle's grave is several blocks north of the junction of the three rivers in downtown Fort Wayne

"Hailed as the last Chief of the Miami Indians, he was born in 1747 near Devil's Lake, northwest of Churubusco in Whitley county, Indiana. Little Turtle was the son of the Miami chief Acquenacke and a Mahican mother. His grandfather, Osandiah, was chief at the time of the Battle of the Johnston farm (as it is now called) in 1763. When the tribe ceded their last Indiana reservation in 1838 to the Government, they gave Me-Shin-Go-Me-Sia (Michikinikwa) ten sections of land in Grant County, Indiana"

This one has the children of Francis Slocum

You must be very careful with genealogies of Little Turtle, Chief Richardville, and Francis Slocum. There are many questionable genealogies on line. There are some that have Francis married to Chief Richardville when in fact it was her daughter.
