"Members of my family
(settlers since ca. 1870) insisted that Tonganoxie was named after an
Indian chief who treated settlers hospitably and helped them catch
catfish and grow crops when they were having difficulty. My father
(Oliver Phillips, Sr., born in Tonganoxie in 1874) once took me out
searching for Chief Tonganoxie's grave, but he concluded that the
site, which he had known as a boy, was lost or under the turnpike."
