Caleb Brown and Sarah Ann Vary became step brother and sister six months before they married. He came to Brantingham which was in the Greig area about 1832 with his parents. They had come from Nassau NY and Caleb's father--John Brown--with David Brown, Mulford Northrup, and Matthew Turck had purchased from Caleb & Mary Lyon over 6,000 acres in the Brantingham Tract for $12,000. The Deed was recorded 30 Jun 1834. John Brown and Mulford Northrup built a saw mill in the Brantingham area. The land was bounded on the east by the Erie Canal & St. Lawrence Road and included Brantingham Lake (then called Fish Lake) and most of present Greig village. John Brown died in 1835. The story on this purhase and surveying can be found in Records of Deeds, Court House, Lowville NY.
