Charles, Catherine

Catherine Charles was a member of the Tunxis community in Farmington, Connecticut.  In 1777, she received a little more than seven acres of land on the Tunxis reservation.  However, because of a debt of a little more than four pounds owed to Dr. Thomas Wadsworth, Sheriff Ezekiel Cowles, on December 13, 1784, levied seven acres of her land on the Tunxis reservation at a price of 12 shillings and sixpence per acre.  There is a Catherine Charles living among the Western Pequot in the summer of 1766. A child of this woman died in Ledyard in the winter of 1779.  It is unclear whether the two women are the same.
