Back in 1899, the Improved Order of Red Men of Massachusetts erected a bronze statue of this great sachem, which others theft upon. My first introduction to the sachem was 1968 when we laid my grand mother, Edith Ruby Heaney Reynolds to earth. I was a 12 year old at the time. My elders (aunts and uncles) told me about the sachem's statues, that stands in the same cemetery where my grand mother rests; Edson Cemetery, Lowell Massachusetts. They said that we are related to the sachem through my Great Grandmother; Elizabeth Anna Waters Reynolds. Thus far, I haven't been able to prove this link at all, but it is an interesting story and possibility. The sachem's statue over the years has been vandalized; tomahawk, spear, hand and other parts carried off to no regard at all who he was and what he did in life. I can only imagine that on some bookcase somewhere a green patina hand, or spear standing in a corner collecting dust. And no more a thought!
