John Perry

As head chief of the Shawnee, he often traded at Col. Johnston’s agency where he was well-known to all the early settlers. He was fluent in English and had impeccable manners. Perry signed the treaty of 1831 at Wapakoneta, Ohio. When he later learned that the tribe had been deceived, Perry went to Washington with other tribal leaders to talk to the President about changing the language of the agreement. A bill was presented to Congress, but action came many years too late. He moved west with his tribe.
