  • Note: 1 Caleb Northrop came the latter part of the year 1837, with his two sons, from Cayuga County, and entered 160 acres on section 36. Leaving his family in Lawrence, at the house of J. R. Monroe, he began the erection of a cabin for their occupation, to which they repaired on its completion. He then devoted himself to improving his land, and made much progress in his pioneer labor. On this farm he resided until his death, and by his industry and good judgment established a reputation as a successful farmer. The sons of Mr. Northrop manifested a keen interest in public affairs connected with the township, and held many offices of trust. One of them still resides in Bangor. -------------------- Perrin M.
