Title
[Document, 1769 August 28]
Abstract
Isaac Van Deusen, 71 years old, now living in New York about four miles up Murderer's Creek, is not interested in the outcome of the controversy. Van Deusen lived in New Jersey at Ramapo from the time he was 23 until about 18 or 19 years ago, and moved from there to the Clove, where he settled under an Indian purchase. Both at Ramapo and at the Clove he paid taxes to New Jersey. As far as he knows, inhabitants of Sterling, Ringwood and Ramapo paid taxes to New Jersey. At the Clove, some paid taxes to New York, others to New Jersey. Van Deusen also stated that John Bayard told him that the Bayard family and "a good York patent" for their lands, and that the people at Ramapo were depriving them of their right. Signed with mark by Van Deusen. In Jay's hand.
