Unredeemed captive, Jun 15, 2010
by BruceHH

"Dr. Demos sets the story of white captives in context. The taking of John Williams and his family, among others during a raid on Deerfield, Mass. by Indians allied to the French is the beginning of the 'story.' Eunice Williams, his daughter, was not returned to New England when others in the group were traded back for Frenchmen held captive in New England or ransomed. Eunice was adopted by an Indian family when she was 'captured.' Later she married an Indian and became completely acculturated to the Indian way of life and converted to Catholicism. She chose not to be 'redeemed.'
Using Eunice and the Williams family situation as a spring board, Dr. Demos discusses the Indian way of life and that of the New Englanders. The impact of the various wars between the French and the British in North America on the situation is touched upon.
What I learned is that Eunice Williams did visit her relatives in Massachusetts after her father died. Unfortunately, the women of the family did not visit her in her home situation. Perhaps they would have seen the differences in culture and the rights of women which could have created more discord in the Protestant patriarchy of New England."
