Title
[Document, 1769 August 29]
Abstract
John Demarest, disinterested in the outcome of the controversy, resident in the northern part of Hackensack, has heard that the boundary between New York and New Jersey is at 41 degrees 40'. This line cuts off about fifteen acres from a farm held by his father, and now belonging to his brother. Demarest's father told him that this land had been settled by his grandfather, but did not say anything a bout the present controversy between New York and New Jersey. Demarest stated that two of his brothers and other relatives are interested in the outcome of the controversy. Signed by Demarest. In Jay's hand.
