Bill Moose known as the last of the Wyandot Indian Tribe to live in the Northwest Territory. He was well liked and respected. He first became acquainted with the central Ohio area while visiting the memorial of a Wyandot Chief Leatherlips (Shateyaronyah) with his parents as a child. Later he moved to the area, and raised his family in a log cabin built for him. It is believed the cabin was somewhere on Morse Road. He laid in state in July of 1937 from the 13th through the 18th, in Worthington at Rutherford Funeral Home. 1600 people paid their respects during that time, and thousands came to the elaborate funeral held for him. He was layed to rest in full Tribal Costume. His memorial is a peaceful park area in Upper Arlington where children can ride their bikes or walk and enjoy the shade of trees. Along with his grave is an historial marker for The Scioto Trail. The plaque relates the historial importance of this trail. His stone is engraved by Zenker Brothers.
