"A History of Deerfield," written by George Sheldon (1818-1916) in the late 19th century, was one of many town histories published in New England in the wake of the celebration of the United States' centennial. In two volumes, the history of the town is told in 924 pages. Part II in the second volume contains 395 pages of genealogy information, invaluable to historians and researchers, of the early settlers of Deerfield and their descendants. Mr. Sheldon utilized town records, personal correspondence, diaries, and court records to create his history and the genealogies.
