The Pharaoh and Fowler Families depicted above were prominent families of the Montaukett tribe. The caption of the historical photo above, dated 1924, indicates the individuals standing in the back row, from left to right are Charles Fowler, John Fowler, Pocahontas Pharaoh, and Sam Pharaoh. Seated in the front row are Marguerite Fowler, George Fowler, and Maria Pharaoh (Banks). A note below the caption states that Marguerite Fowler and John Fowler are the children of George Fowler. This photo is part of the Fowler family albums, a collection of images of the Montaukett and Shinnecock people, donated to East Hampton Library's Long Island Collection in 1997.
