Kirkland, Samuel. Article #34. Vol 6, pg 890.
Samuel Kirkland (1741-1808), was an American minister and missionary to the Iroquois before and during the American Revolutionary War. He was a friend to the Oneida and Tuscarora nations and, working for General Washington, helped to negotiate an alliance with the Oneida and Tuscarora during the war.
After the war, the state of New York made several treaties with the Oneida to buy large tracts of their land, despite pledges made to the Oneida that they would be able to keep their land. Kirkland made out pretty well, personally receiving about 4,000 acres. On the land, Kirkland built the Hamilton-Oneida Academy, a seminary admitting both white and Oneida students.
