Connewango Scott
1910 Census
Connewango is a Seneca Indian word meaning "at the falls" and how it came to be applied to the in north Caddo county, is a matter of conjecture for history students. At least two Seneca villages in Pennsylvania bore the name, one of them the home of Cornplanter, a Seneca, who came with the tribe when it migrated to east Oklahoma.

A township and a creek today mark the site of a massacre in which the Tonkawa Indians were almost wiped from the earth on the night of October 23, 1862. About 300 strong, their organization said to be made up of remnants of other tribes, they were never friendly with other tribes of the vicinity. Using the Tonkawa loyalty to the Confederacy as an excuse to settle old grudges, a band of Union sympathizing Shawnees, Caddos, Delawares, Wichitas, Wacos, Keechi, Cherokees, Seminoles and Creeks, attacked them, after destroying the Wichita Agency here. About 137 were killed. The rest fled to Ft. Griffen, Texas. The 92 surviving in 1884, were moved to the Oakland Agency near Ponca City.
