Item Description
  Letter, [Lucy B. Armstrong] to Dear Sir [Thomas Hendricks]
Author: Armstrong, Lucy B.
Date: November 10, 1857

Lucy B. Armstrong, in this unsigned letter to Thomas Hendricks, Land Office Commissioner, requested that he take action on her behalf to secure her entitled plot of land, per treaties with the Wyandot tribe made on March 17, 1842 and Jan 31, 1855. Hendricks had previously told her that Wyandot lands were all claimed, and that she should apply for Shawnee lands, though at present her request had not gotten any attention. Her husband, John M. Armstrong, was the brother of Silas Armstrong, and deceased at the time of this letter, leaving her with 5 children. Both Silas and John were leaders of the Wyandot Nation.
