    • Minutes of Board of Property:
      Allegations that Simon Eaker claims under a Warrant to James Brotherton dated the 8 of June 1762. George Robb claims by two Applications one dated the 30 December 1756 the other the 5 December 1767. And Robert Beard claims by an Application dated the 2 April 1767. The Defendants alleges that Brothertons Warrant is located on the East Side of Stony Ridge and that the Land intended to be taken by that Warrant was given up to and surveyed by George Patty Father-in-Law to Eaker and that it cannot properly affect their Lands.
      Caveat: Henry Huber agt Christian Marburger:
      It appears upon hearing that John Marburger obtained an Application for the Land in Dispute which lay much more convenient to Huber than to him. And afterwards upon Agreement between them John Marburger gave up and relinquished to Henry Huber all that part of his Right of Application in the part of Land which lay on the North Side of the Road from Philadelphia to Macungy [Macungie is in southern edge of present day Lehigh County}. Afterwards in the Year 1768 John Marburger sold his Application Right to Christian Marburger who knew of the Relinquishment afterwards. In February 1769 Henry Huber took out an Application for the Land (John Marburger being run away) And in March Last Christian Marburger got the whole surveyed upon the first Application I am of Opinion that Henry Huber ought to have all the Land. On the North Side of the Road surveyed to him on his Application pay to Christian Marburger his Expense of surveying.
