On August 3, 1829, Delaware natives and representatives of the United States signed the Treaty of Little Sandusky. In this treaty, the last group of Delawares in Ohio gave up their claim to their land in Ohio. They joined much of the rest of the Delaware nation who were already living on a reservation in Missouri. The United States government paid the Delawares two thousand dollars in cash and provided them with one thousand dollars worth of supplies for their journey west.
