This causes a difficulty in obtaining their true meanings when once forgotten. They are referable to the two great Indian families, the Iroquois and Algonquin, the former mainly prevailing from Albany westward, and the latter being principally confined to the Hudson river valley and the shores of Lake Champlain, though some will be found along the St. Lawrence and the Susquehanna. Near the former river and in the Adirondacks, they are mostly of recent introduction through Algonquin hunters and guides.

In a general way the latter class may be recognized by the use of m, b, p, and sometimes by terminations like ick, ing, uck, an, etc. Some names have been introduced, as Alabama, Osceola, Wyoming, and others, but these are few.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
