Princess Angeline or Kikisoblu, daughter of Chief Seattle, dies on May 31, 1896. Essay 2493 : Printer-Friendly Format

On May 31, 1896, Princess Angeline or Kikisoblu (1820?-1896), daughter of Chief Seattle (178?-1866), a member of the Suquamish tribe, dies in her shack located in Seattle on Western Avenue between Pike and Pine streets.

The eldest daughter of Seattle and his first wife, she was named Kikisoblu Seattle. She married Dokub Cud, who died before the arrival of Euro-American settlers on Puget Sound. When pioneer Catherine Maynard (1816-1906) heard the name, she announced, "You are too good looking a woman to carry around such a name as that, and I now christen you Angeline." She was sometimes called Wewick (Prosch). Angeline worked as a laundress for Seattle residents and eventually came to reside in a shack on the waterfront along with other Native Americans.

At her request, she was buried near her old friend, pioneer Henry Yesler (1810-1892) in Lake View Cemetery.
