D-4-6

Part of the original Nathaniel Breed farm. John Breed bought this from his brother, Nathaniel breed JR. in 1780 and built the house there.  He lived there until he sold it to John Osgood as part of that man’s consolidation of his holdings of Osgood Hill to pasture sheep. Sources say that Abijah Brown (John’s brother-in-law) built the place, but deeds make clear his holdings and homestead are north at D-5-3 and D-5-4. Said to have gone to “Sandy Creek” [New York] in 1828.
