    Description

    Native American Land Deed, a True Copy Dated April 29, 1749. Two pages, 8.75" x 12.25", n.p. The document begins, "Upon the 30th day of July 1685 these following highland Indians appeared before Mr. Johannes Wendell and Mr. Gerrit Bankor Justices of the Peace of Albany Colony . . ." The deed discusses land on the bank of the Hudson River and was certified by the "Secretary's Office New York the 29 April 1749". This "true copy" records the names of original signers as well as the marks of Indian signers. It is interesting to note that both male and female Indians were signers of the deed. This document, worthy of further historical research, has three horizontal folds, but remains in very good condition.
