Summary
The deponent, resident for the past 32 years two miles north of the courthouse in Orange County, is not interested in the outcome of the controversy. Cornelius Low, the deponent's uncle, had lands lying partly in west Jersey and partly in east Jersey, about 14 miles south of the boundary line between New York and New Jersey. The deponent's father was assessor for southern Orange county under the government of New York. His father taxed Henrick Leroux and Samuel Leroux, who lived in Ramapo. Matthias Bogart and his father, resident in Orange County, have been paying taxes to New York for 50 years. The deponent heard from old people that Bernardus Van Veelen who had land northeastward of Matthias Bogart, also paid taxes to New York. Signed, John Guisbert Bogart.
