INDIAN CHIEF, BORN AT RAPIDS IN 1835, PASSES AWAY AT GOVERNMENT RESERVATION, 82 YRS Mexico Was Son of Chief Waumegeshko, Early Day Leader of Tribes and Signer of Treaty of 1833 for Which He received Medal from U.S. Benjamin Y. Mexico, Indian chieftain, born at Rapids, this county in 1835, is dead at the government reservation at Keshena, according to news received in the city today. Chief Mexico died on Christmas day at the age of 82 years. The burial was held at Keshena. Mexico was the son of Chief Waumegeshko, familiarly known as Wampum, who was the leader of the mixed tribes which, inhabited Manitowoc county in the early 30's and remained here until the late 50's. Chief Waumegeshko was one of the signers of the treaty of 1833, known as the Chicago treaty, which ceded to the whites all of the lands in the northwest section, in recognition of his participation in the treaty, he was presented with a medal by the government. The Indians did not leave this section, following the treaty but Waumegeshko and his tribe remained in this section until the outbreak of the civil war, the camp of the Indians being located at what is known as Cato Falls. The camp was there at the time of the Indain scare of 1842 when the district was aroused to terror by reports of an uprising of the tribe. Two whitemen, who refused to believe the report, visited Waumegeshko's camp and found the Indians quiet and with no signs of the reported uprising apparent. The chief accompanied them to Rapids to give his personal assurance that there was no trouble. Mexico, whose death is reported, was known to many of the older residents of the city and county and after going to the Keshena reservation, where he has been since leaving here, he made several visits to the city, and was a guest of people he knew as a youth, including the late Mrs. P.P. Smith, Mrs. P.J. Pierce and Mrs. N.B. Morse. Eight years ago he came here as the guest of the County Historical society for dedication of a monument to his late father. He was a man of intelligence, though little educated and was a recognized leader at Keshena. He had taken much interest in religious work and was affiliated with the work of the Episcopal church at the reservation. Mexico's father died in 1844 and his son was chief of the tribes later.

Funiture from which I fear, we may not get another year. The TV set with stamp-size screen, carpets with the well-worn sheen. Two suits of chothes not quite threadbare. "All-purpose" shoes that need repair. Sadly then I saw my plight. After 20 years of toil and flight. My Treasure Chest was some-what small, with house and car and clothes and all. On I drove trance-like I fear, when suddenly my house was near. "Your daddy's home" I heard her cry. As eight pairs of feet went rushing by. And smothered in arms and curly hair. I knew that I was a Millionaire! William G.
