The "Olde Deerfield Doll House" was, in the years after World War I, a tearoom in Deerfield, Massachusetts. Its owner, Matilda Hyde (1866-1943) published a series of small booklets in 1919, which told the stories of five of the children of Deerfield who were captured in the attack of February 1704. In addition, a sixth book reveals the story of Arosen, the Mohawk whom Eunice Williams eventually married. The five Deerfield children were Eunice Williams, Stephen Williams, Thankful Stebbins, Abigail Nims, and Remembrance Sheldon. The booklets are suitable for young readers.
