Three Little Indian Sisters

watso sisters blodgetts landing nh

The daughters of Louis Watso and Katherine Tahamont. The Watso family kept a shop on the shores of New Hampshire’s Lake Sunapee following the turn of the last century.

From the Ne-Do-Ba website:

Louis Watso was born about 1874 and descends from an Abenaki War Chief. He married Katherine Tahamont on 20-Jan-1893. Katherine was born 5-Jan-1878 at Odanak or upstate NY. Louis died in 1959 and Katherine died 18-May-1943. Both are buried in Claremont NH, where they spent much of their lives. This couple had three daughters that grew to adulthood;

  • Jessie born 25-Feb-1897 at Odanak, married Mr. Barton
  • Eva born 7-Jun-1899 at Odanak, married Mr. Perry
  • Mable born about 1900, Married Mr. Turner

The Watso family continues, the Abenaki continue. #respect

    1. Thanks Jerry. I had seen his listing (and Mable’s) on FindAGrave… I didn’t pick up on the fact of the second marriage though! Although it is obvious in the photo of the marker, it wasn’t cited in the listing or short bio.
      I want to document his (and his family’s and others) life in the immediate vicinity as a part of the evidence of Abenaki continuance in the homelands, contrary to the prevailing false historical narrative. Claremont is within the heart of Sokwakik, Sokoki country, of course.
