This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other

PREFACE 



The Historical Records Survey of Now York State was until 
recently one unit of a nationwide program of the Historical Records Sur- 
vey, headed by Dr. Luther H» Evans. Operating now in oach stato as a 
separate project under the administrative supervision of the Division of 
Professional and Service Projects of the Work Projects Administration 
and the technical supervision of Sargent B. Child, National Director of 
the Historical Records Survey Program, the Survey has as its objective 
the preparation of complete inventories of the village, town, city, 
county, and state archives of the nation, and the publication of the 
inventories as guides to the material of greatest historical interest. 
In addition to these inventories, work is proceeding in the cataloguing 
and calendaring of manuscript collections, the inventorying of church 
archives, the listing of American imprints prior to 1877, and the tran- 
scription of some of the earliest public records. The Records of the 
Road Commissioners of Ulster County » 1739-1795 , constitute the third 
publication of the New York State Survey in the field of record tran- 
scription. 

In New York State, the Historical Records Survey began opera- 
tions in February 1936, as a part of the Federal Writers Project, but 
from May 1936 until August 31, 1939, the Survey was an independent part 
of Federal Project No. 1. Since September 1, 1939, it has been a state- 
wide project under the sponsorship of the New York State Education 
Department, Division of Archives and History. 

The records presented h»re were first photostated, and then 
transcribed from the photostats to prevent undue wear and tear on the 
original volumes. The transcription was made verbatim, following the 
paging of the original. The original records are in an excellent state 
of preservation, being part of the collection of old county records 
housed in the famous wooden chest in the county clerk's office. 

Working from photostat sheets greatly simplified and expedited 
the labor of transcribing these records, and guaranteed the greatest 
possible accuracy in the end product. Eccentricities of spelling and 
arrangement have been carefully observed in transcribing. Only one 
change from the original records has been made; wherever raised letters 
are encountered in the text, it has been thought expedient to omit the 
colon, period, or other mark beneath the raised letter or letters. It 
is difficult, in placing the material on mimeograph stencils, to cut in, 
without damaging the stencils, letters or symbols so close to each other 
as these would be. Othorwise, there has been no change in making these 
trans criptions •

The original records were apparently very hastily copied in 
some instancos, for one frequently encountors misspelled names, incom- 
plete words, garbled Dutch, and so on. The two most valuable aids in 
checking the spelling of names have been Gustavo Anjou's Ulster County 
. • . Probate Records , New York, 1906, 2 vols., and E.M. Ruttenber and 
L.H. Clark, History of Orange County f Nqw York , Philadelphia, 1881. The 
index to each volume of the transcriptions has been made as complete as 
possible. 

The transcribing was done by J. Roy Collier, research assistant, 
and Paul Pox, research editor, of the Albany office of the New York State 
Survey. The index was prepared by Paul Fox and Uichael Keenan, who also 
jointly proofread both volumes. The volume was mimeographed by Raymond 
Morey in the Albany office. 

The publication of this volume was made possible through the 
interest and cooperation of Mr. James A. .Simpson, former clerk of Ulster 
County, and Mr. Robert A. Snyder, the present clerk. Grateful apprecia- 
tion is also expressed to Mr. Edward Coykendall of Kingston, who has 
shown continued interest in the work of the Survey in Ulster County. 

Like tho other publications of the Historical Records Survey, 
these volumes are available for distribution to state and local public 
officials, libraries and historical societies in New York State, and to 
a limited number of libraries and governmental agencies outside of the 
state. Requests for information should bo address od to tho Historical 
Rocords Survey, 39 Columbia Street, Albany, Now York.

viewed the Land as well over which the Road would run 
requested by James Buchanan as the Land over which the 
Road would run as Petitioned for by the said Alexander

Road Requested by the said James Buchanan would not be 
convenient for the said Alexander Falls & William Scot and 
other Persons resideing in the said Neighbourhood to Travel

aforesaid AND we did also find that the said Road Petitioned

would by no Means serve the said James Buchanan for 
the Purposes aforesaid AND ALSO we found on our said 
View that if either of the Roads requested and petitioned for 
as aforesaid might Serve to Travel and Transport their Goods 
to the next nearest Highway as aforesaid that yet the laying 
out of Either of them would be doing the Greatest Damage
