David Zeisberger: A Life among the Indians

By Earl P. Olmstead; David Zeisberger | Go to book overview

Notes
1. That Dusty Road, 1721-1736
1. Christopher Gist, Christopher Gist's Journals, comp. and ed. William M. Darlington ( 1893; rpt. New York: Argonaut Press, 1966), 36. Gist, on behalf of the Ohio Company, came into this area on December 7, 1750, and recorded the name of the river as Elk's Eye Creek, the Indian meaning for Muskingum.
2. David Zeisberger, David Zeisberger's History of Northern American Indians, ed. Archer Butler Hulbert and William Nathaniel Schwarze, in Ohio Archaeological and Historical Quarterly 19 ( April and January 1910): 1-173. This history, written by Zeisberger during the years 1779 and 1780, was never published in its original form until it was translated in 1910 by Hulbert and Schwarze. Bishop George Henry Loskiel used the document in his History of the Mission of the United Brethren among the Indians in North America ( London: Brethren's Society for the Furtherance of the Gospel, 1794). Loskiel gave the author only one line of credit, despite the fact that one-third of Loskiel's book consists of the Zeisberger material.
3. Ted J. Brasser, "Mahican", in Handbook of the North American Indians, ed. Bruce G. Trigger , vol. 15 ( Washington, D.C.: Smithsonian Institution, 1978), 198-212; Bert Salwen, "Indians of Southern New England and Long Island", Handbook of the North American Indians, ed. Trigger, 15:161-76. The Mahican Indians of the Hudson Valley have been confused in Moravian history with the early Pequot-Mohegans, Indians of the Thames River Valley of eastern Connecticut. A full explanation of these two tribes can be found in the above references.
4. William A. Hunter, "History of the Ohio Valley", in Handbook of the North American Indians, ed. Trigger, 15:590. During Zeisberger's time in the valley it was called the Muskingum. I will follow his usage. It later became the Tuscarawas and still carries this name.
