Title
[Document, 1769 September 06]
Abstract
The deponent, 54 years old, resident at Sugar Loaf, not interested in the outcome of the controversy, said that one of the chain bearers who attended the commissioners for the division of the Wawayanda Patent showed him the line he helped run, and told him that it was the one recognized by New Jersey people. However, Clarke had heard that New Jersey people recognized a previous line as the true one . He said that Captain Westbrook, who lived in Minisink, was a captain of the militia of Orange County, and that people of Minisink trained under him in the New York militia; but cannot remember how long ago this took place. The persons named in exhibit 51 live in Goshen precinct in Orange county, south of the line run by Dennis and Clinton. Signed, Richard Clarke. In Jay's hand.
