Rachel, dau/Timothy (Tunxis)

Rachel was the daughter of Timothy Indian from the Tunxis community of Farmington, Connecticut.  She and her sister Sarah were placed under the guardianship of Solomon Mossuck after her father's death with the provision that the girls be provided for and taught to read until they turned sixteen. Rachel married James Wawowos, a prominent Tunxis leader.  They had at least two children, Susannah and James.  The family may have removed to Stockbridge by 1769 when she, James, Sarah, and Sarah's husband sold property and a house at Pequabuck Meadow to Thankful Shilling.  Rachel and James sold an adjacent parcel three years later to Hannah Mamanash.  In 1777, she received 5 acres in Lot 6, which she later sold.
