Chief Tarhe District Patch 21685The Chief Tarhe District takes its name from the famous Wyandot Indian Chief. It is said there was no other individual who did so much to bring peace between the Indian people and the whites of Ohio as Chief Tarhe, the Crane. He was the leading spirit at the Treaty of Greenville in 1795 and used his influence with all the tribes to keep the terms of the treaty. Chief Tarhe was born in the vicinity of Detroit, Mich. in 1742. He was a member of the Porcupine clan of the tribe, known also as the descendants of the Petuns, or “Tobacco Nation,” of the Huron Confederacy.

Chief Tarhe was given the name Crane by the French (Le Chef Grue, or Monsieur Grue, the Chief Crane or Mr. Crane). The nickname was bestowed upon him because of his height and slender build. He had no English name but the Americans adopted the French nickname. Chief Tarhe married the daughter of Chevalier Durante, a French Canadian. They had a daughter named Myerrah (White Crane). Myerrah became the wife of Isaac Zane who later founded Zanesville, Ohio.

Indian villages at this time were not permanent but moved as food and game became scarce. Most of the Wyandot Indian villages or camps were within the Sandusky River watershed. Before the Greenville Treaty, Tarhe was living at Solomanstown, believed to be in Logan County. Later he took his camp to the banks of the Hockhocking River at what is now Lancaster, Ohio.

Chief Tarhe died in November 1816, at Cranetown near Upper Sandusky Ohio. The funeral for this 76 year old man was the largest ever known for an Indian Chief. Chief Tarhe District’s Boy Scout Leadership training program is called Cranetown in honor of our great chief namesake.
