In a petition to the General Assembly of Connecticut, local Lyme, Connecticut physician, Vine Utley, sought compensation for medical services rendered to the Niantics. Among the Niantics listed was Lydia Waukeet; she was billed for Utley's attendance for the period between July 19, 1801 and July 18, 1819. It is unclear what condition was being treated but, the nominal charge for nearly two decades of medical care suggests infrequent treatment at the very least.
