Caleb Weaver was born May 9, 1771 in Coventry, RI, the son of John and Susan (Carr) Weaver. John was a Revolutionary War soldier. Caleb married Hannah Franklin, daughter of David Franklin. She is believed to have died shortly after 1815, but there is no stone for her and perhaps she died before Caleb moved here. He bought land from the Holland Land Company in 1837, but John, David, and Caleb Jr. bought their land in 1822. They all came from Greenfield, Saratoga County, NY where all but the last child of Caleb and Hannah were born. There is a possibility that John, the eldest, may have been born in Coventry. Hannah, the youngest, born after 1811, was born in Arkwright, tradition says, so Caleb must have been here much earlier than his purchase shows on the books.

Joel WHITE , a farmer and carpenter, son of Noah and Tamar (Bates) White, b. September 1, 1796; married. Sarah VINTON, b. in Goshen (probably) March 21, 1800. She was the daughter of Abiather and Sarah (Paine) Vinton. Soon after his marriage (February 22, 1816) Joel White removed to Leroy, Genesee County, N. Y., where several of his children were born. In 1825 he moved to the town of Arkwright, Chautauqua County, N. Y., to cast his lot with the early pioneers of the wilderness. As he wearily climbed the wooded hills he paused to stick the ox-goad, which he carried, into the ground beside the rugged pathway, saying as he did so that "it would grow." Many years afterward, when the poplar switch had grown to giant dimensions, his son, Elliot Vinton White, bought the farm in whose dooryard the sentinel poplar stood, a landmark for miles around, a fitting monument to the sturdy character of Joel, the pioneer. He first settled on the summit of the Arkwright hills, but afterward made his home in a sheltered nook among the hills, which was known as "Joel's Basin" for many years. He was a good man, just and honorable in all his ways, one whose memory yet clings around the place which knows him no more.

The eldest of the twelve children, he saw many of the hardships and vicissitudes of life in a new country, but experience, the true builder of character, wrought for him a good name, which, wherever he has lived, has been a testimonial to his sterling honesty and integrity of purpose. He experienced religion when a young man and became a member of the Freewill Baptist church. His occupation for many years was that of a tanner; later in life, a farmer and carpenter.
