The exact period of the decease of Uncas has not been ascertained it is supposed to have occurred in the fall of 1683.The latest notice that has been discovered is the acknowledgment of a deed before Samual mason in June,1683,According to tradition,the last two or three years of his life were mostly dozed away,in his wigwam.It was very common for old Indians to wear out in that way,becoming physically inert, sinking into indifference,and dying as it were for want of this.An active mind undoubtedly assists largely in keeping the vital power of motion.It is said that the English in passing through Mohegan between Norwich and New London,would often turn aside to the royal wigwam of Uncas,in order to pay the chief a visit,and in these latter years of his life was to him sitting at the door on a rude bench,sleeping in the sun;sometimes with his head lolling on his breast,,and sometimes head forward upon his hands, leanning on a staff.It was difficult to rouse any further than to elict the gutturall ugk!waugh!or purhaps a Hosh-ah-me? How do you do? or Ty-an-noh? How do you feel? All accounts,Indians and English, agree that he was brought to Norwich and interred in a spot previously known as the burial-place of the Indian sachems.P-262 Caulkin's History of Norwich.
