They all crowded near-the ten lesser sahems, two neighoring chiftain. And they listend solemly while Daniel read the deed and Telaka translated.

Elizabeth sighed deeply, and listend no more while Daniel continued to read. She rubbed her foot secetly along the ground. It’s mine-she thought. Ican do as I like here. She looked with passionate gratitude across the rock at the Indianswho were giving her this joy. None of them looked back except Keofferam, Telaka’s brother, who noted Elizabeth’s expression with astonishment. He was a short squatty young brave, lavisly tattooed with black and red dots as befitted a great chief’s son. His intelligent gaze was puzzled as, he inspected Elizabeth’s glowing face, then his lips lifted in a faint amile, as though he had understood. Certainly the other Indians did not.They had no passion for land ownership, nor clear recognition of what they were selling, except that they agreed not to fish within a mile of any white man’s weir. What of that? There were innumerable rivers and plenty of fish. If the white men wanted to bestow the warm gaudy English coats for the privilege of building huts and planting corn, why, let them. There was room enough for all. And so they signed their marks in squiggles and whorls, the four sachems who were selling, and the otherss as witnesses, using Robert’s quill pen and some excellent ink maid from sumack berries. Robert Husted and Andrew Messenger were the English witnesses. When thay had allsigned, Jeffrey Ferris gravely requestedthe addition of a paragraph.

“Heofferam hath sould all his right in ye above sd. to Jeffere Ferris,”witnessed by “Richard Williams” and “Angell Husted. Jeffrey nodded and stepped back satisfid. He had nocertainty, at present of remaining on his little Greenwich plot, but still it was well to have his ownership attested.

Editors note;

The book of Winthrop Woman by Anya Seton gives a good insight of how thing were when our ancestors Robert and Angell Husted Came to America and lived in Greenwich a lot of the information came from the Wintrop letters, documents from that time.

Staci Husted - May 25, 2004

Sheldon Little League softball coach Jimmy Hosford The husband of Staci Husted received the ultimate honor when a softball field was named for him June 5. Hosford has been coaching Sheldon Little League for 25 years. Advertisement

"This was an unexpected but an appreciated surprise," said Hosford.

Hosford started coaching little league baseball in 1979. "I was in little league growing up and it was something I always wanted to do," he said.

A friend asked Hosford if he was interested in helping coach a team and he accepted. "Once I coached that one time, I knew then that I still wanted to be a part of little league," said Hosford.

Later, he watched his own children play in the league. "I coached my son, LaMarr, until he was in the Majors, then started coaching softball 11 years ago when my daughter, Christina, started playing T-ball," he said.

Hosford had plans to retire after this year, but he changed his mind. "I have too many people telling me not to retire, and after this year my daughter will be too old to play little league and she has plans to coach with me.

"I thought about the chance of me coaching baseball again, but my softball team does not want me to leave, and I don't know what would happen to the softball league if I went back to baseball," said Hosford.

Hosford does not want to see the end of the softball league because he feels he is responsible for some of the girls at C.E. King High School who play softball. "I have coached a lot of children during my 25 years and I have coached a lot of girls who are now on the high school team," he said.

"It has been a rewarding experience watching the children I used to coach years ago coaching their own children today."

Hosford is originally from the Sheldon area and moved to the North Shore area in 1978.

"I know most of the community because I have been involved with little league for so long," he said. When asked what he would do if he retired from coaching little league, he said, "I would be totally lost, coaching little league has been my life." Not only is he a coach for a softball team, he is vice president of the Sheldon Softball League.

Because little league is only played seven months out of the year, Hosford begins with the fundamentals at the beginning of each season and works with those who have never played softball before. "It is a pleasure to coach children who have no idea what softball is all about and to watch them improve over time," said Hosford.

The coach was also presented with a plaque in appreciation of his 25 years of service.

The softball field is located on Reservoir Road and Highway 90.
