      "Piankeshaw Village Discovered";http://ezinearticles.com/?Piankeshaw-Village-Discovered&id=1405077[Online] EXCERPTS:
      Para. 1: "A Piankeshaw village, obscure to most historians andscholars may be a major player in the history of the Wabash tributary,the White River. Some evidence from historic military records andIndian Claims Commission Reports definitely links a Piankeshaw Villageto a White River, Indiana location. The earliest historical accountsinclude a reference to Fairplay Township [Fairplay is a township inGreene County, in the City of Bloomington, Indiana metro area.] thatstate very clearly, "On the site of the old town of Fairplay, aflourishing Piankeshaw Village had stood in former years before thewhite man came..." "Scattered over the ground there, especially inearly years were the implements of warfare and of domesticusefulnees...and were tracts of land from which the brush and sod hadbeen cleared, and upon which the former inhabitants had grown theircrops of corn, and perhaps vegetables The village had containedseveral hundred wigwams, judging from the extent of open ground whereit stood and the statements of the earliest white settlers... TheIndians often came to the cabins of the first white settlers forammunition, whiskey or food and brought with them to barter--furs,wild meat and curious trinkets of their own manufacture." Etc...
      Para 6: "By 1726, the Piankashaws had moved some distance downstreamfrom Ouiatenon and were established in a village near the mouth ofVermilion River, a western tributary to the Wabash River. This villagewas called "Mercata or Piankashaw" and it was estimated that at least150 men, representing approximately 600 persons resided there. By 1730a French officer, Vincennes, moved to the lower Wabash, taking withhim some Vermilion River Piankashaws, who settled near the post heestablished in the vicinity of the present-day town of Vincennes,Indiana in the First Street neighborhood. At the same time, a largernumber of Piankashaws remained in their village on the VermilionRiver." Etc...
