This three-page document identified the "return of votes polled at the election held in the Wyandott nation, Nebraska Territory, October 12th 1852, for a delegate to represent the aforesaid Territory in the thirty-second Congress of the United States." Abelard Guthrie, who was also on the voter roll, received all 35 votes cast. [Guthrie, who married into the Wyandot tribe, was later involved in the development of Quindaro. With one or two exceptions--e.g.., Thomas Coon Hawk--the names on the roll appear to be Anglo-American in origin.]

Creator: Walker, William
Date: October 12, 1852
