Caleb lived on Cherry Grove Farm, on Carter Road near its intersection with Route 206. His father George Green purchased the farm April 20, 1770 from Jonathan & Abigail Sargent. He willed it to his son Caleb Smith August 12, 1777. An interesting footnote is a document showing that on the same property Ann & Nathaniel Green, of no apparent relation, are listed in 1779 under Merchants & Traders operating a still.


Caleb sworn in as a trustee of Maidenhead church on October 27, 1804. Three years later he became an elder, a post he held for nearly fifty years. 
"Caleb Smith Green of 'Cherry Grove,' another of the early elders, ceased to act in 1848. His death occurred in 1851. He was a member of the church for half a century and during most of that time he served it both as trustee and elder."
