A band of twenty-five Abenaki from Canada stopped in Greenfield and Deerfield for several nights in August and September 1837. The residents of both towns were at first alarmed as to their purpose, but their fears were put to rest when they discovered they were descendants of a former Deerfield girl, Eunice Williams, and that they came in peace.
