Eastern Shawnee. A division of the Shawnee now living in Indian Territory. They formerly lived with the Seneca (Mingo) near Lewistown, Ohio, but sold their lands in 1831 and removed with the latter tribe to Kansas. In 1867 they separated from the Seneca and removed to Indian Territory under the name of Eastern Shawnee. They are now under the Seneca school and numbered 95 in 1904. (J. M.)
