Samuel Allen (1702-1746) was gathering hay with neighbors and members of his family during King George's War on August 25, 1746 in a section south of the village of Deerfield (known as the Bars) when they were overcome by Native Americans hiding in the nearby brush. Mr. Allen was killed and a fragment of the shirt he was wearing has been preserved in Memorial Hall. His daughter, Eunice, age 13, was tomahawked but survived. She died in 1818 at age 85, and at some time in her life knitted this stocking.
