Thomas Layton Kindness was born the 14th of August, 1833. The Kindness family is of Pequot origins. They are members of the Brothertown Community which originally settled in New York. The family moved with the tribe to Wisconsin when Laton was a child.
As a young man he traveled with a circus and was known as an Indian Doctor.
Layton passed away on the 2nd of September, 1910 in Colorado.
For a detailed review of records, images, and other items of interest concerning this individual please visit the Thomas Laton Kiness / Kanistanaux post on my research blog. I update this post whenever I discover new items.
The Kanistanaux children found in the 1870, 1875, and 1880 census households (Leonatta, Carrie, Isaac Henry, and William) do not appear to be his children and may not be children of his wife either.
William is identified in a news-clipping as his grandson by marriage. The death records of Isaac Henry and Carrie provide no information about their parents yet surviving family members knew the two were raised in the Kanistanaux household. Lee-o-netto's death record provides no name for her mother and the name John Moulton as her father. The true relationship of these children to Layton is unknown at this time.
