Father: Two Lance of the Two Kettle Band and Mother: Rosy Light of Dawn-Hunkpapa Band
Chief Two lance I and his wife Iron Woman had three children: Two Hawks
Two Lance II, Eagle woman. Eagle Woman was one of the wives of Honore Picotte. He separated from her and returned to his white wife Theresa in St. Louis. But before he also had been married to two other women:
Padianopapi, the daughter of Chief Struck bythe Ree.
Wambdi Autepewin—"Eagle Woman That All Look At"—Matilda Picotte Galpin
1st married Honore Picotte, General Agent of the American Fur Company out of Fort Pierre. After Honore returned to his white wife, in 1850, she married a second time to Charles Galpin. Charles died November 30, 1869.
Three children are Honore Picotte's:
Louise married Charles DeGrey (Interpreter at Cheyenne River Agency, 1871-1872) who died June 1877; then married George L. Van Solen (sawmill-engineer at Fort Yates in 1879) who died 1895;
two children, George and Lucille Van Solen
Zoe Lulu—born about 1847, married Lieutentant William Harmon;
four children: Leo, Milan, William, Joseph Harmon
Charles Francois Picotte, Step-son from Yankton
Two Are Charles Galpin's:
Alma married Henry Parkin in 1879; Henry Parkin died in 1895. Annie married John E. Kennedy on 2/20/1882; Kennedy died 1883. Annie died 6/14/1884. One son, Charles Louis Kennedy,born 1883; adopted by Alma after her sister's death.
Matilda Picotte Galpin, also known as Eagle Woman, was the only female Sioux chief.
Matilda was a signer of 1882 Standing Rock treaty. She was daughter of a Hunkpapa -Two Kettle union between Two Lance I and Rosy Light of Dawn. In North Dakota History Journal of Northern Plains it credits Zoe Lulu Harmon with having Sitting Bull's pipe.
Capt William Harmon (b1835 Springfield, ME) outlived Zoe Lulu and died in 1903, Milwaukee. He was Civil war vet with the 1st Minnesota volunteer infantry and obtained the rank of Captain in regular army, resigning in 1870. He owned the steamer "H.M. Rice". He then did government contract work in Dakota Territory. In 1882, Montana, he established first permanent ranch in what would be Fallon County on east O'Fallon Creek. William, Zoe, and son Milan had land patents in Carter County in 1892, 1894, 1905.
Sitting Bull visited Capt William Harmon at Bismarck while being "escorted" on the steamer General Sherman. The book "Campaign's General Custer in the Northwest and the Final Surrender of Sitting Bull" by Judson Elliott Walker details this in Chapter 4.
Charles Galpin was listed as Zoe Lulu's father in all but Leo Harmon's bio. He listed his grandparent as Picotte with French heritage. I believe him to be correct.
Matilda had a country marriage with Honore Picotte, American Fur Co. trader in Dakotas. I found only 2 children, daughters Zoe Lulu & Louise. Father DeSmet is credited with telling Honore to go home to his white wife in St. Louis. (I did not find the citation for this.)
Matilda then married Ft Abraham Lincoln clerk & Civil War veteran Charles Galpin. Matilda had 2 more daughters: Alma married Henry Parkin (clerk Ft Abraham Lincoln, store manager Standing Rock, trading post of Ft Yates, later owned Cannonball Ranch, territorial legislature, state senator); Lucy Annie married Charles Van Solen (town of Solen).
Charles & Matilda were frequent interpreters and part of Father Pierre DeSmet's 1868 peace commission. Charles died in 1869 and Matilda became the trader. It was unusual for a woman to be the trader. She was born in 1820 and died in 1888. She is credited as being a peace keeper.
The complete name of Zoe Lulu's mother was "Eagle Woman That All Look At". Her husband Charles Galpin called her Little Eagle. She was baptized Matilda. She was by all accounts very capable. Dakota PBS radio did a 3-part series on her.
Zoe Lulu's brother Charles Francois Picotte was granted 640 acres outside of reservation for his assistance in treaty signing by US Govt. He bought additional 30 acres to get river access and it became the site of new territorial capital Yankton. It was first called Charlie's Town. He did die broke.
