Indian Council (1878) | Surnames: Murray, Williams

The Chiefs of the Iroquois Indians held a meeting last Tuesday in their Council house at Caughnawaga. Grand Chief Joseph Williams was elected President of the Council house at Caughnawaga. Grand Chief Joseph Williams was elected President of the Council and Chief P. Murray, Secretary. Both these dignitaries bear a good record, and will no doubt rule with discretion.
