Nedson, Wealthy, - 1840
Wealthy Nedson (dc. December 11, 1840) was the wife of Richard Nedson of the Eastern Pequot community. The couple had at least one child, possibly Richard Nedson (bc. 1785), an indentured servant who ran away from Stephen Billings of Groton in 1804.
The tribes' overseer, Ezra Hewitt, provided her meal, corn, and pork in 1830. In November of 1840, she received crackers. But six days after her last allotment of candles and sugar on December 5th of that year, Hewitt noted the payment for her coffin. The following summer of 1841, her child received clothing supplies.
