George Sheldon was a Deerfield, Massachusetts, historian who wrote extensively about the town's founding and early history. His biography of Deerfield, Massachusetts' first settled minister focused on the Reverend John Williams's<!--ObjectID=538--> (1664-1729) genealogy and early life experiences. Sheldon's book placed Williams<!--ObjectID=538--> in the context of New England's Puritan founders and the colony's conflicts with the French and Native Americans. Although his title referred to Williams<!--ObjectID=538--> as "The Redeemed Captive," Sheldon's narrative ended before the French and Indian raid on the town in 1704 when Williams<!--ObjectID=538--> was taken captive along with over one hundred of his parishioners.
