Good morning, swiftyperci!

I have a feeling you're going to kick yourself when you read this,

The Seminole chief you're looking for would be Osceola, a resourceful
and intelligent leader who was something of a childhood hero of mine. 
Florida's Osceola county was named after him.

A search under that spelling turns up 270,000 hits in Google.

Thank you for that trip to my childhood!

All the best,
