HI! I have just started looking into my great grandfather's native american lineage. His name was Fred B. Simons/Simonds.He lived in the Manchester and Thomaston areas where he was a farmer. He was Native American. I also know he died in 1961 in Manchester Ct. I am having an obituary sent to me. I would love to hear from you and learn more of the Simons/Simonds connection to the Mashantucket Pequot tribe. It would be wonderful to finally make connections with a specific tribe.
