The following are links to pdf files, almost all having to do with the division of Great Lot 42 (aka New Stamford) under state law passed in 1787. This includes a copy of the survey, the legislative history of the law, the sequence of wills from Margaret Beekman Livingston to Cora Barton, showing how the estate was passed within the Livingston family. Enclosed are the documents I have assembled. -- Steve Grant, 19 July 2022
