The area surrounding Vestal Center was a good example of the wilderness described above, as witnessed by descendants of John Fairbrother, neighbor of Daniel Price. "John Fairbrother came here in 1796," the History relates, "and settled about a mile south of Vestal Centre, where some of his descendants now live. According to the statement of one of his sons, made a few years ago, that section was then occupied only by Indians and wild beasts; the Choconut creek region was infested with great numbers of panthers. His son told William Mersereau that his father has shot 2,500 deer."
