Gay Head. A village, probably of the Wampanoag, formerly on the w. end of Marthas Vineyard, off the S. E. coast of Massachusetts. It contained 260 souls in 1698, and in 1809 there were still 240 Indian and negro mixed-bloods, who probably represented the entire Indian population of the island. (J. M.)
