The provenience of the human remains is consistent with the historically documented territory of the Seneca. Consultation has further established the cultural affiliation of these human remains with the Seneca Nation of Indians [previously listed as Seneca Nation of New York] and the Tonawanda Band of Seneca [previously listed as Tonawanda Band of Seneca Indians of New York]. In the late nineteenth century, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from the Ball Farm/Totiakton Site, Monroe County, NY. The human remains were excavated by William M. Locke and acquired by William Pryor Letchworth. The Letchworth collection was included in the gift of the Glen Iris Estate to New York State in 1907. The human remains include the mandible, teeth, and cranial fragments belonging to a sub-adult aged 6–12 of unknown sex. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Based on the known context of recovery and a 2002 archaeological and osteological assessment, the human remains date to ca. A.D. 1669–1687 and are connected to the earlier Seneca. Ca. A.D. 1669–1687, Totiakton was a Seneca village located along Honeoye Creek in the Town of Mendon, Monroe County, NY. The provenience of the human remains is consistent with the historically documented territory of the Seneca.
