“River History” by Dr. Eileen Fielding. Simsbury, CT: The Farmington Watershed Association, 2014.
Dr. Fielding, Director of the Farmington Watershed Association, gave a presentation on the history of the Farmington River in 2014. She was kind enough to export that presentation on a disc for future use. Dr. Fielding provides facts on what types of fish live in the Farmington, and also the relationship the natives had with the Farmington River who lived alongside or near it.
Miller, Dana M. Images of America: Canton & Collinsville. Charleston, SC: Arcadia Publishing, 2001.
Miller’s booklet gives a quick overview of Canton and Collinsville history and gives photographs of early homes in the towns. Both the Tunxis and the Massacoe are briefly discussed, and Miller asserts that both were extremely peaceful. The author also mentions Cherry, or Waquaheag, a native of Canton.
