The Burying Ground contains the remains of hundreds of Wyandot and Wyandot descendants. The first burials took place there in 1843 shortly after the removal of the Wyandot from Ohio under the Indian Removal Act of 1830 to the “Indian Territory” west of the Missouri River. It is estimated that from fall 1843 through the end of summer 1844, nearly 100 of the tribe’s population of around 700 members died as a result of disease and exposure to the harsh climate. The Burying Ground was used continuously by the Wyandot from 1843 until 1965. The vast majority of the graves in the Burying Ground are unmarked. Most of the Wyandot important leaders during the removal period and thereafter are buried in the cemetery. Among those whose remains lying in the Burying Ground is Eliza (Lyda) Burton Conley, the first American Indian to argue a case before the United States Supreme Court, in 1910. Conley was herself a Wyandot; her case was filed as part of her lifelong effort to protect the Burying Ground, where her parents’ graves were located, from destruction.
