Does anyone have more information about Lean Bear, the Cheyenne whose eldest sister was married to Sleepy Eye? I have seen the historical facts - murder by militial in 1864, etc. - and the photos from the 1862 visit to Washington, D.C. I'm looking for more concrete verification of parents, other siblings, etc. Perhaps there was further interaction between the families - Cheyenne and Sioux?
I am looking for a family tree for Chief Sleepy Eye. I have seen bits and pieces here and there but have not seen an extensive one. Has anyone tried putting one togeter? Maybe we can put one together on here. If you are a descendant and want to be added to the tree please post here or contact me by email. Sara email@example.com

No info on first spouse, but she remarried to Louis LaBlanc aka Louis Provemcalle..they both died at Faribault, MN, around 1850.They had a daughter-Winona. Winona married Anthony St. Antoine. They wed at Prairie du Chien.Their children were : A daughter who married George Faribault, and the 2nd daughter wed Fred Faribault(nephew of George Faribault). Sleepy Eye's spouses: 1.

Sleepy Eye died while on a hunting trip. He was first buried on an islandat big stone lake which is now dry land in S. Dakota. other Indians were also buried there. his remains were eventually returned to Sleepy Eye ,MN and reinterred there. _______________ Sara: I saw where Sleepy Eye was said to have had 9 daughters. some of the information Ifound was in Old Traverse des Sioux book.1929. Also he may have had more than two wives. the other information I found in my search for the Provencalles, and by typing chief sleepy Eye, Soux Indian, and also at the Minnesota GenWeb., I forgort which county sleepy eye MN is in .
