Tauromee, a chief of the Wyandotte nation, was a noted hunter in his early life. In 1868 he was chosen to the council board of his nation, and a number of years afterward became head chief. His administration was a wise and just one, always in the best interests of his people. He opposed the proposition of the government to divide the lands among the members of the tribe and let them come into full citizenship on the ground that many of them would squander their inheritance and soon be without homes. The proposition was put to a vote of the tribe and carried by a large majority with the result foreseen by the chief. Tauromee then set to work to get them new homes and after surmounting great obstacles succeeded in obtaining 20,000 acres of land from the Senecas, to which tract he was moving his tribe at the time of his death in Jan., 1870. Gov. Walker pronounced the eulogy at the funeral.
