Oche-Finceco--called Charles Cornells--a half breed. He was one of the delegation to Washington in 1826, and also signed the treaty. Nothing remarkable is known of Cornells, except that he was followed by certain Black-legs who won the money he received at the Treaty of Washington ($10,000) whereupon, he went into his loft and hung himself. He was held in much esteem by his people, who were engaged, when Col. McKenney was in their country, in 1827, in building a roof of split shingles over his grave. [P. 4.]
