G-Massachusetts Indian Villages, Towns and Settlements

A complete listing of all the Indian villages, towns and settlements as listed in Handbook of Americans North of Mexico.

Gay Head. A village, probably of the Wampanoag, formerly on the w. end of Marthas Vineyard, off the S. E. coast of Massachusetts. It contained 260 souls in 1698, and in 1809 there were still 240 Indian and negro mixed-bloods, who probably represented the entire Indian population of the island. (J. M.)
