Title
[Document, 1769 September 06]
Abstract
The deponent, 29 years old, not interested in the outcome of the controversy, lives in Goshen Precinct of Orange County. He was a chainbearer when the Wawayanda patent was divided in 1765. The line was run from Corbett's old house near the Hudson to Fishkill, which was called the northernmost branch of the Delaware River, at a place called Casheighturk. With the help of the Random Line, a true line was run from Minisink Mountain across the bounds of the Wawayanda Patent to the foot of the High Hills of the High Lands, where a marker was erected. They ran another line eastward from a marker put on the east side of Minisink Mountain by a surveyor named Webb as far as the Wawayanda patent extended in the direction of Minisink Island. Signed, John Campbell, In Jay's hand.
