Caleb came from Uxbridge (Massachusetts Colony), but moved to Vermont, where he built a house and began a farm in the dense wilderness near Danby (Rutland County).

Nathan Smith, Caleb Smith (his father), and Wing Rogers (his father-in-law by wife Elizabeth Rogers) were all neighbors listed in the 1790 census for Danby Vermont. The listing was actually done in 1791, after Vermont became a state.

He was about 80 when he died.
