Ned, Simon (1834 Apes Petition)

Simon Ned was a member of the Mashpee Indian community.  On March 24, 1769, he married Achsah Roakesay at Harwich, Massachusetts.

He was a leading signatory to a January 1834 Mashpee petition written by William Apes.   Despite being at sea, Ned's name was added to that of 288 other Mashpee residents and community members complaining of a number of longstanding grievances against the overseers and the Congregational missionary to the tribe.
