Capt.Tisho-Mingo-Choctaw
Northwest Expedition of 1793-94
Indian Wars of 1812-14

Captain Tishomingo of the Choctaw Nation. The name "Tishomingo" was an old one among both the Chickasaws and the Choctaws, an official title in their ancient tribal organizations. The English form of the nameŚ"Tishomingo"Śwas the spelling according to sound of the Choctaw and Chickasaw words tishu meaning "servant" (i.e., an assistant) and miko meaning "chief" (pronounced nearly minko).
Captain Tishomingo (or Tishu Miko), of the Choctaw Nation, lived ten miles from the Choctaw Agency, the location of which was in Oktibbeha County, Mississippi. He was one of the captains in Chief Mosholatubbee's district. Under the terms of the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek (1830), Captain Tishomingo was granted a U. S. pension of $25 a year, for having served as one of the twenty-five Choctaw warriors under the command of General Anthony Wayne(American revolutionary war). After immigrating to the Choctaw Nation West (Oklahoma), Captain Tishomingo lived in the vicinity of Eagletown, in the Pitchlynn-Howell settlement, where he died in the spring of 1841.
