I have a painting of his my parents bought on the roadside during a road trip up in the UP in the mid 1960's. I never have been able to find out anything about him.

My family also has one bought by Grand parents in sixties. The story was he was local near Brimley Michigan. There is a large population of native Americans in Brimley and we have had a family camp near there since 1965. I would think the tribe historian at Bay Mills would have information about him.
