Statement that the personal estate of Lasaruz Stanton was insufficient to pay his debts. Therefore his real estate was to be sold at sheriff's sale to pay his debts. Dated 14 Nov. 1799.
The real estate consisting of land in Mamakating, beginning in the Northerly corner, bound by Tjerck Van Curen Westbrook & Daniel Helms, containing 20 acres; another piece 4 acres; also containig one mefsuage, a Dwelling house & farm. (Note from S. Mearns, Ulster County Genealogical Society,1986: I think it was ordered that the tract with mefsauge & dwelling house not be sold as it would be to the detriment of the heirs (not named) and there was enough realized from the sale of the other property to pay the debts.)
