Rob ert Gilbert Livingston, in his will dated 20 Aug. 1789, refers to the "farm which I bought of Michael Hopkins, where Josiah Ingersoll lived."

      He took a lease in lot 18 of the Beekman Patent on a farm of 280 acres as early as 1774 when Livingston noted he paid wheat rents on a farm that had been leased by Jacob Miller. The rent book states: "Josiah Ingersoll bought this farm of said Miller for L250 and said Ingersoll sold it to Ezra Mow in 1777."..... [1]
