There is a note the "Documents Relating to the Colonial History of New Jersey, Vol. XI," August the 3rd, 1725. All Persons concerned are hereby informed. That a Council of Proprietors of the Eastern Division of New Jersey, are to meet at the House of Phineas Mackintosh at Perth-Amboy, on Tuesday the 10th Day of this Instant August.

Phineas Mackintosh left a will in New York, "Abstracts of Wills Vol III 1730-1744," I, Phineas Mackintosh, being of sound mind but weak in body. "My wife Elizabeth is to have the full use and benefit of all my estate for the maintainance of herself and my son, and in giving my son as good an education as my estate will allow." And after he is of age the profits of the estate are to be divided between them. I leave to my son the farm Huntting Grove, being 500 acres and the mill and 300 acres adjoining to it. The woodland and the unimproved land are to be laid out in such a manner as shall be most convenient. If my son should die under age without issue, then 1/2 of the estate is to go to my brother Joseph's son Phineas, or such other son as my brother shall send over to this country, "that the said estate may remain in the name of Mackintosh," the other half of my estate to go to my wife or her heirs. My will is that 800 acres of land, remaining after the lands above described, shall be sold by my executors. I make Cadwallader Colden, Esq., and my brother-in-law, John Alsop, executors.
