jan 1, 1840 - Sauk & Meskwaki out
of Washington County
Sauk and Meskwaki almost completely gone from Washington County by 1840:
Either because they did not want to leave their homeland or because they were somehow not capable of doing so, some Sauk and Meskwaki individuals apparently remained in Washington illegally beyond the removal date set by the United States.
