Title
[Document, 1769 September 05]
Abstract
The deponent, 39 years old, owning no land, disinterested in the outcome of the controversy, has known the township of Wantage for 16 or 17 years. The persons of this township named in Exhibit C 47 all live northward of the Clinton-Dennis line, and pay taxes to New Jersey. The deponent has heard of another line, running on the west side of the drowned lands across the Shawengunk Mountains to Minisi nk, and from thence to Station Rock, which has been regarded by inhabitants on either side of it as the boundary between New York and New Jersey. The inhabitants of land on both sides of the Mackhackamack River from the place where Jacobus Swartwout lives to the southwest have paid taxes to New Jersey. The rates in their taverns and their tavern rails conform to the custom of New Jersey. Signed, John Doty, In Jay's hand.
