Monument for Jean B Richardville, Chief of the Miami Tribe of Indiana.
His original burial site was at the corner of the current Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Fort Wayne, Indiana. Sources do not agree whether his body was left in place during the construction of the cathedral or whether it was moved with the other burials in the original Catholic cemetery (next to the cathedral site) to the second Catholice Cemetery and again when that cemetery was closed and burials were moved to the current Catholic Cemetery in the 1870s.
