| Chief Sashabaw developed a special friendship with a white
settler named Oliver Williams. The two men treated each other as brothers. They
helped each other and worked well together. The children of Oliver Williams, Mary and Oliver, played
with the Indian children. Mary and Oliver were given Indian names by the Chief as
a symbol of his friendship.
Sometime before 1834, Chief Sashabaw became very ill and died.
He was buried near Oliver Williams' home on the banks of Silver Lake, in Waterford
