The Legend of Chief Wam Setta

CHIEF WAM SETTA
letter from the collection of
Dana Bianca


Chief Wam Setta, lived in the area west of the Middle Island Yaphank Road. This letter, from former area resident E. Vanderbilt, to his former neighbor Phileteus Phillips, requests a photograph of the old chief. If you look at the 1906 map of Yaphank, you will see the area once occupied by Chief Wam Setta.
