Catoneras-HeatherFlower

Catoneras (1603-1609) was an Indian Princess, nicked named "Heather Flower"
Her father was Wyandanch - the Chieftain/Sachem of the Montauk Indians who lived on Montauk Point, Long Island, NewYork
Wyandanch was born in 1571 and died of the Plague in the fall of 1659, he was 86 years old.
by the end of the plague 2/3 of the Algonquin People of Long Island had died.

There is also a picture of Wyandanch's other daughter Quashawam, so I assume that Catoneras looked similar to her sister Quashawam.  http://davidmartine.com/?part=fineart&articles_id=2114&act=artist1&artist=92&collection=433#panel1-2
