The area of the Holland Land Purchase was opened for settlement in the first decade of the 19th century. David's brothers Peter and Isaac Granger seem to have been in the first group of settlers, purchasing land in 1805. David followed them soon after, being elected "Path Master" -- i.e., road supervisor -- in 1812.
David lived in the town of Skaneateles NY, "on Parker Wright place, beyond brick schoolhouse, above C. Pardee". He eventually followed brother Peter to Pike NY, also known by the Indian name Nunda. Pike, incorporated in 1848, is still a very small town in upstate New York near the Finger Lakes.
