BIOGRAPHY: Caleb moved to Wilbraham, Massachusetts about 1739 and his descendants have several deeds of land in the "east road" bearing that date. The farm on which he located in 1741 was still occupied by his grandsons, Jason and George, in 1863, and the property remained in his family until 1875. The adjoining farm, once owned by Jason Stebbins, was originally part of Caleb's farm. On April 6, 1764, Caleb and Joseph Miller received permission to erect a Grist Mill at "12 mile Brook," and they were given 4 acres by the town for the mill. Later, Caleb added a saw mill (Greenlee & Greenlee, 1904). [He was a sergeant in Col. John Worthington's company of minute men. ] - believe this refers to son Caleb who died 28 Mar 1787
Occupation: Grist and saw mill/farmer
