House of James Van Nostrand, North Hempstead, Oct 
27th 1874. 

Testimony taken by the Commissioners Valentine Willis, 
B. Hendrickson and Ebenezer Kellum, appointed by Court 
to assess damages for a highway through the lands of 
George H. Kelsey, Charlotte K. Kelsey and Charlotte C. 
Kelsey. 

George H. Reiser being duly sworn savs — that I am 
acquainted with the land in question, have known it since 
1828. Said land lies in the town of North Hempstead, lying 
between the Lakeville Road and property or lands of Mrs. 
Shepard and James Van Nostrand. there is a fence the 
whole distance on the North side of said proposed road, 
said highway is said to be fifty feet wide, there is no fence 
on the South side of said road. Said Road takes two acres 
and three quarters of land belonging to Charlotte H. Kelsey 
and Charlotte C. Kelsey and eventually to me. I think it 
was 10 years since the Waldron farm was sold. I think 



HEMPSTEAD TOWN RECORDS. 23 

this land to be taken is worth $600 per acre. I rent this 
land for $12.50-100 per acre. This land is now in a high 
state of cultivation. This property is taken at a disadvan- 
tage to me, as it is leased out of from $400 to $500 to one 
man, and $300 for another man. This property is taken 
without my consent. Lands were sold b} T O. Bergen to 
John Wick on the Jericho Turnpike one mile off this road 
for $500 per acre. 

George H. Kelsey. 

Edwin Laurence duly sworn, says: — That I know the 
land in question. The Waldron farm lying adjoining, was 
sold about 3 years ago for $1,000 or $5,000, containing 
about 40 acres. Buildings were not very valuable, it was 
a foreclosure sale. I sold the front part of my farm joining 
the Jericho Turnpike, running about 160 rods to the north, 
for $300 per acre. The front land is worth about double 
what the rear land is worth. I think this land to be taken 

Page 296. 

for the said road is worth about $200 per acre. I think the 
road when opened will be a benefit to the land. I should 
consider this road a benefit to the Kelsey property without 
any compensation for the land, and do not consider the 
road any damage. I consider the Waldron farm in as good 
condition for gardening purposes as the land about to be 
taken for this road, when it was sold. The rear part of 
the property I sold for $300 per acre, lies near the laud 
about to be taken for this road, which rear land I consider 
to be worth about one half what the front was. 

Edwin Laurence. 

Do not know of any property being sold within 2 years 

under $200 per acre within one mile of this road. Have 

been told that widow Hendrickson sold a part of farm at 

Hinsdale Station for $500 per acre (front land). Owner of 

property told me so. 

Edwin Laurence.

George Kelsey recalled says : — That I know of the Bur- 
tis property lying or fronting on the Turnpike for $500 per 
acre, with buildings; Mrs. Hendricksons at Hinsdale for 
$500 per acre, without buildings.

32 HEMrSTEAD TOWN RECORDS. 

be appropriated out of the monies arising from the sale of

and leading from the highway running from Port Washing- 
ton to Roslyn, by S. A. Jenks and others, to the highway

propriated under Chap 804 of the laws of 1872, to erect a 
Court House and and Jail for Queens County, and 

Whereas — As the result of said expenditure they present 
to the taxpayers an unfinished building which will require 
according to the estimate of the Commissioners at least 
$100,000 to which may safely be added $100,000 to com- 
plete, and 

Whereas — It would cost at least $50,000 additional to 
erect a Jail, grade and fence the ground, making a grand 
total of $425,000, thereby entailing an extra burden upon 
the people in amount equal to nearly one half of our orig- 
inal war debt, which in these times of depression the} r are 
not able to bear, therefore

Resolved — That we the people of the town of North 
Hempstead, in town Meeting assembled, do emphatically

Whereas — Our attention has been called to a letter by L. 
Bradford Prince addressed to prominent Oystermen under 
date of Albany March 9th 1875, which letter has been read 
and duly considered by this meeting, therefore 

Resolved — That we most emphatically disapprove of and 
condemn the legislation suggested in said letter, and we

en suing year. 

Resolved — that the Supervisor be authorised to borrow 
on the credit of the town the sum of fifteen hundred dollars

hydrophobia, now, therefore,

A Record of the Division 



Made by the "Proprietors," 



OF THE

A5 



Patentees of the Town of 



Hempstead.

to the Town. 



The first leaf, containing the beginning and principal 
portion of the record of the proceedings of the Town Meet-

of the Proprietor's lands, is missing. All that remains is on

Their Heirs or Assigns According to what they 

have Respectively paid to the patent. There was also a 
Large Tract of Land Laid out ye Seventeenth Day of 
Apriel 1712 for Town Commons Lying between the East 
Meadow and the West Meadow which Land we find by Ex- 
perience Has Not Answered the Expectations or Ends that 
It was Laid out for the Reason that Several persons Makes 
Such Havock and Distraction of ye Timber that the End 
will prove Distinctive To the Inhabitance afore'sd We the

Hath Extended far beyond our Expectation.
