An encampment of Abenakis from St. Francis in areas around Greenfield and Deerfield caused local people some uneasiness when they were first discovered. The Indians were descendants of Eunice Williams, seven-year-old daughter of the Reverend John Williams<!--ObjectID=538-->, who was captured during the Deerfield Raid in 1704 and carried to Canada. Eunice married a Mohawk and spent her life in an Indian village in Canada. The twenty-five Abenaki were described in the article as "comfortably well off" with a good supply of blankets and robes.
