      There was so much feeking in your posting. I wanted to make sure you KEEP ON with the journey you have started. You will get discouraged. KEEP GOING! It is a SPIRITUAL answdr that you seek. Because it is, your journey will be purposefully hard, filled with doubt and frustration. KEEP THE COURSE you set for yourself FROM THE BEGINNING… feel free to call me Gary Phillips (616) 954-5280

    I am hoping that I can find some information via this website.

    I was told that there is a Wolf clan of Native Americans somewhere in Connecticut.

    If this is true, where are they located, and how would I get in contact with some of the elders?

    Thank you in advance for your time.

    My Father told me that his mother was Pequot.I tried to find some information about her but came to a dead stop in Prospect Conn, cemetery. She was not buried in the family plot with her husband, sons and daughter who died with her in child birth or shortly there after. The person in the office of the cemetery said she would not be in the family plot, but in a separate area unmarked common grave (a potters field) for lack of words, if she where a slave or native American. There is no birth Certificate, or adoption certificate.That I could find, but there was a marriage certificate, and death I believe. and she owned land that she inherited from the Spencers Who either owned or adopted her. Her name was Carrie Spencer and married Henry E. Smith, They lived in Prospect Conn. Any information I can find of my heritage would be wonderful, I am very proud to be a family member of a Native American.Thank-you, Gale
