Skeesucks, Nancy

In June of 1816, Nancy Skeesucks was listed among Eastern Pequots receiving proceeds from the rental of Indian Town Pasture on the Lantern Hill reservation in North Stonington, Connecticut.

The records of the state-appointed overseer of the Eastern Pequot tribe also contain a number of entries for her beginning in June of 1822 until of January 1836.  During this time Nancy received proceeds from the rental of tribal land, as well as, goods and services from tribal funds. By the winter of 1830, she had a least one child who, according to records, attended school with the children of Cyrus Shelly, Jr. and Moses Brushell. After January 30, 1836, Nancy Skeesucks seems to disappear from the documentary record.
