He was said to have been gigantic in stature, nearly seven feet tall.

Merrimack?[edit]

I have seen sources that say he may have lived in Maine until the 1690s. Additionally, when did he live in Merrimack? He lived in Lowell at the top of the Pawtucket Falls by accounts I've read. I believe he was forcibly moved to Merrimack later, but I don't want to just change the article. CSZero 02:06, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Ok, this has been here for two months - I'm going to make the change CSZero 22:10, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

The best collection of information on Passaconaway's life is probably "Passaconaway in the White Mountains" by Charles Edward Beals, Jr. (1916). It is available online here: http://danmahony.com/Passaconaway/PassContents.htm Cbmccarthy (talk) 13:30, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Info submitted to article[edit]

Anonymous editor 69.144.160.105 submitted the following info to the article:

"I am adding some of what I read in English Records from the papers of Reginald Foster and Daniel Wood his Son in law.Daniel Wood was paid 3 shillings for helping disarming of the sachem of the Merrimac Passaconway on 4th. of Dec. 1643...He died in 1649 before March,27th His widow exicuted his will in Ipsiwch,Essex,Mass.U.S.A....This is off Ancestry.so should be valid."

I am moving it here until it can be verified and entered in a more presentable fashion. --Ken Gallager (talk) 13:47, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Rename[edit]

The memorial inscription reads Passaconnaway

I assume you are suggesting the article be renamed on the basis of this memorial. Where is it, by the way? At any rate, I think the memorial's spelling is an outlier; see the Passaconaway Wildlife Refuge, the monument in the Edson Cemetery, and many other sources. I also just noticed that User:Rossi162 used the double-n in the caption to the statue picture; I updated the picture but didn't fix the caption. So I feel confident in correcting the caption, and I think a redirect with the "nn" spelling is appropriate. David Brooks (talk) 15:17, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
