Abstract The collection pertains to several claims to a land grant that was supposedly made to Jonathan Carver by two Naudowessie Indian chiefs in 1767. The land grant was located on the east side of the Mississippi River between the Fall of St. Anthony and Lake Pepin’s south end, extending far into present-day Wisconsin.
