A Part of the CommunityThe Brinegars were not famous or rich, but they were important to their families and neighbors. In 1876 Martin Brinegar purchased this 125 acre farm from Henderson Crouse, Caroline Joines' uncle, for $200. Two years later Martin and Caroline were married; he was 21 and she was 16. There were many small communities close by where the Brinegars visited their families and friends, traded for supplies, and attended church and school.
