Birth: 1845
Death: Oct. 17, 1885
Fort Buford
Williams County
North Dakota, USA

From the official records of Fort Buford, North Dakota: Mr. George Fleury, civilian and the Indian Interpreter employed in the Quartermaster Department, was murdered on October 17 by Private Charles Wood, Troop L, 7th US Cavalry. The latter was turned over to civil authorities of Bismarck, Dakota Territory, for trial. (signed) Edward Whittemore, Captain, Company F, 15th Infantry, Acting Post Commander.

The cemetery bodies were transferred to the Custer National Cemetery in Montana, when Fort Buford was closed about 1900. This grave was left marked along with several others, to indicate where the post cemetery at Fort Buford had been originally located. His body is actually relocated to the Custer National Cemetery, Montana.

The photo of George Fleury, Indian Scout, was taken in May 1881. The image was taken during the surrender at Fort Buford when Crow King and Low Dog returned from Canada and surrendered to the US Army (both were participants in the Battle of the Little Bighorn). George Fleury was the French/Indian interpreter for Fort Buford. (Image courtesy of the Smithsonian Institute).
