Murders in Thurston County, 1854 to 1857

Just a little research from the searchable Washington Digital Archives.

  • 11 total cases
  • 7 are white people killing Indians
  • 1 is Wahoolit, who killed Slugia, who gave up Leschi
  • 1 is Leschi, who was blamed for killing McCallister, but who was later cleared
  • 1 is Alki John, and I don't know who that is

Hi Emmett,

I believe Wahoolit's conviction was for the ambush of William White on Chambers Prairie.
