Sheldon Family Genealogy Forum
Anyone here descended from or related to the John Sheldon family that lived in Deerfield, MA at the time of the 1704 French and Indian attack on the village? Descendants of John Jr, Ebenezer, Mary, Remembrance, or of Hannah Jr (daughter of John and Hannah Stebbins Sheldon).
I've read several published accounts of the raid, but I'm looking for the kind of story or anecdote about the attack that would have been passed on from one generation to another, without making it into the published records. I'm trying to collect stories and anecdotes on what happened during the attack, the march to Canada, the period of captivity, and the return after they were ransomed.
