John Brundage, 5th son of the pioneer Joseph Brundage and his wife Catherine, who came to  Hopewell around 1790 or possibly before. This means that John was 18 Or 20 at that  time. They came from Bucks Co. Penn, and  the father Joseph took up the two Sections of land, no. 16 and l8-- over 600 acres. When John was married his father gave him one hundred and  some of Sect. 16 for his  home. John & Hannah had 5 children: Samuel, Olive, Joseph, Melissa and Susan. Susan married Calvin Crane and they continued to live on her father's farm, as did their children.  I think John built the house still standing on the Place.



George Brundage, Sr. 1769-1850 must have been around 20 or older when he came with his parents, Joseph and Catherine, from Bucks Co. Penn. When he married his first wife Ruth ingles, his father gave him one hundred  and some acres on Sect. 18 for his home. He built the house sti1l standing on the place. His children were Polly, Thomas.

There are so many Case Families that it is hard to know the relationship. 

The James W. Case family had at least four children: (l) David Franklin whose wife was Sarah Jane Andrews. Her home was on the County House Road near the Smith Rd. and their dau. was Mrs. James McCabe (Margaret McCabe, Howell St.) (2)Eliza Case  married a Reeves and their children  were Frank, Charles, Lucy, Bertha Case (Johnson), and Beulah. 

A Joshua Case settled on Sect. 39. Then there was a Col. Case whose wife was Sarah Chapin, and may have been a dau. of George and Dolly Chapin. Col. Case lived on the County House Rd. (Romiser farm) He probably was Col. Nelson Case, father of Anna Case Couch, who used to sing in the Aloquin Church. 

Then there was Omar Case who lived on the Turnpike , and his son

Hadley Case, not much older than I.  He married a Thompson girl in

Canandaigua and I think went to N.J.
