Michael McCrevey and his wife Minnie (O'Hare) settled in West Brookfield in the late 1880's or early 1890's.  Sons Daniel and Francis were born there in 1891 and 1894 respectively, and the family farmed in Wickaboag Valley for three generations. 

Now much of the McRevey land has been preserved by the Massachusetts Department of Fish & Game.
