Jonah Brewster, from Bennington, Vt., came: to Cambridge among the early settlers, and is said to have cleared the first land where the present Center village now is. Here, near Brewster river, which received its name in his honor, he resided until his death, in 1833. His family consisted of eight children, five of whom settled in the town. Elijah, his second son, born in 1779, died here in 1843. Two of his family of six children settled in the town, of whom Solon Y., born in 1818, now resides on road 47.
