The father, Moses Greeley, was a native of England, and with his sons subsequently removed to Winthrop, about 1779, and thence to the Sandy River township in 1782. Joseph, having purchased of a Mr. Snow his improvements, settled upon the lot owned by the heirs of Hiram B. Stoyell and others, upon which a large part of the Center Village stands. He further improved the land by clearing and erecting buildings, among which was a framed barn built in 1788. He finally sold his farm to Zaccheus Mayhew, and removed to Washington Plantation, now Belgrade, where he died many years ago. Seth, his brother, settled upon lot No. 24 in 1782, and in 1790 sold to Supply Belcher and removed with his father to Phillips, where the latter died at an advanced age. From Phillips he removed in 1818 to Mainville, O., where he died. He married Jane McCausland, a daughter of Henry McCausland of Hallowell.
