Joseph Pascal T.(?) Fish
Age 10 in 1905
His father was Leander Jackson Fish. We are assuming that this photo of "Jackson Fish" is that man and that Joseph P.T. Fish is Joseph Pascal Fish.
aka Jackson Fish, Leading Turtle

Look at % of each tribe in Jackson's father & mother.
Jackson Fish's father [Paschal Fish] was half Shawnee, one eighth Miami and one sixteenth Delaware.
Jackson Fish's mother [Mary Ann Steele?] was one fourth Wyandotte (Huron).

From http://www.accessgenealogy.com/native/kansas/ :
Quapaw . Between 1833 and 1867 lands in the southeastern tip of Kansas belonged to their reserve in Indian Territory (Oklahoma), but in the latter year they ceded this back to the Government. (See Arkansas .)

Shawnee . In 1825 the Shawnee residing in Missouri received a grant of land along the south side of Kansas River, west of the boundary of Missouri. In 1831 they were joined by another body of Shawnee who had formerly lived at Wapaghkonnetta and on Hog Creek, Ohio. In 1854 nearly all of this land was re-ceded to the United States Government and the tribe moved to Indian Territory, the present Oklahoma. (See Tennessee .)

Wyandot . The Wyandot purchased land in eastern Kansas on Missouri River from the Delaware in 1843 and parted with it again in 1850. A few Wyandot also held title to land along with other tribes on the border of Oklahoma and re-ceded it along with them in 1867. (See Ohio .)
----
From The Emigrant Tribes: Wyandot, Delaware & Shawnee, A Chronology by Larry Hancks:
1856
August 19; the new Wyandot Tribal Council requests that the Wyandott Commissioners make modifications in the treaty lists: to strike out Eudora Fish and Leander J. Fish (children of Paschal and Hester Zane Fish), and Sarah Zane, and to add Sarah Barbee (formerly Sarah Sarrahess), Rosanna Stone and her daughter Martha Driver, and all infants born between March 1 and December 8, 1855. The case of Noah E. Zane is to be reexamined.

  Birth Notes:

Birth date needs further research.
At least one source says that the 1854 Indian Census lists Leander as age 7 (i.e., born 1846 or 1847). Captions accompanying photographs of Jackson Fish by Dinwiddie in 1896, archived in the Smithsonian Institution, say that he was born in 1855 in Wayndotte, Oklahoma.

  Burial Notes:

Lot 20, Block 3, Grave 6, Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery, Miami, Oklahoma
