Deerfield in Barnstable County, Massachusetts — The American Northeast (New England)
Quinton Stockwell/ Abigail Bullard Stockwell
and his wife
Abigail Bullard Stockwell
It was in their house, which stood on
this spot, that the Stockwells boarded
the Reverend Samuel Mather during the
earliest days of the settlement.
After Indians destroyed the town in
1675 during King Phillips War, Quinton
Stockwell was one of the stalwart few
who tried in 1677 to rebuild the town.
Captured in an Indian raid on September
19 of that year. He was marched to
Canada with his fellow captives, yet
endured and redeemed the next
spring by fellow colonists of the valley.
This monument to Quinton and Abigail is
is erected by a group of their descendants
to remember and honor the part this
courageous couple played in the
founding of Deerfield.
Dedicated August 21, 1983
