Uncas, Isaiah, - 1770

Baptized in 1750, Isaiah Uncas was the son of Benjamin Uncas III, the sachem of the Mohegan.  He was at Wheelock's Indian Charity School from 1760 to around 1767, where he performed mediocrely as a student and was reassigned to working on the school's farm. The Mohegans at Ben's Town chose him as the successor to his father, Ben Uncas III, a decision that was supported by Connecticut authorities.
 
Isaiah married Mary Sowas, the granddaughter of the Eastern Pequot leader, Mary Momaho Sowas in  North Stonington on November 30, 1769.  He died at Mohegan of consumption on Friday, April 6, 1770, and was buried with his father at the Little Plains burial ground in Norwich.
