Summary
The deponent, not a landowner, and not interested in the outcome of the controversy, has lived in Ramapo for 15 years. He knows the people named in exhibit C, No. 45. They all live northward of the line run by James Clinton and Anthony Dennis, and all pay taxes to New Jersey. The deponent has always heard that the boundary between New York and New Jersey ran about a mile northward of Van Boskirk's house at Spitsberg. Peter Townshend, John Conklin, and the ironworks at Sterling, Ringwood, and Long Pond, all of which lie northward of BanBoskirk's house and the line made by Dennis and Clinton, all pay taxes to New Jersey. Coenradt Frederick who lives at Ramapo a mile west southwest of Van Boskirk's house, pays taxes to New Jersey. Signed, Daniel Hennion, his mark. In Jay's hand.
