H Pennsylvania Indian Villages, Towns and Settlements

A complete listing of all the Indian villages, towns and settlements as listed in Handbook of Americans North of Mexico.

Hickory Indians. A small band formerly occupying a village near Lancaster, Pa. (Day, Penn., 397, 1843). Probably a part of the Delawares.

Hickorytown. A former Munsee and Delaware village, probably about East Hickory or West Hickory, Forest co., Pa. On account of the hostility of the western tribes the Indians here removed in 1791 to the Seneca and were by them settled near Cattaraugus, N. Y. (J. M.)

Hogstown. Described as an old (Delaware) village between Venango and Buffalo cr., Pa., in 1791 (Proctor in Am. St. Papers, Ind. Aff., i, 153, 1832). Perhaps wrongly located and identical with Kuskuski.
