Deposition of Joseph Smith about Property on an Island in the Connecticut River

Deacon Joseph Smith of Haddam of lawful age testifies and says that in his youthful days he knew an Indian man called and known by the name of Cobb, who lived on Thirty Mile Island in Haddam, who he ever understood was one of the principal owner of said island, and he understands that Cobb and his heirs have always rented said island and that no person hath ever pretended to molest the said Cob or his heirs.
