Godwin, Waldo S. Godwin and Ada G. Randall for a Settlement of Dispute as to Boundary Line.

This petition of Emma L. Moller, Cortlandt Godwin, George G. Godwin, Raynor To the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund of The City of New York:

This petition of Emma L. Moller, Cortlandt Godwin, George G. Godwin, Raynor Godwin, Waldo S. Godwin and Ada G. Randall, respectfully shows:

That your petitioners as devisees under the last will and testament of Joseph H. Godwin, deceased, are the owners of the parcel of land known and described on the tax map of The City of New York as Lot 1, in Block 3266, which parcel is indicated on the map hereto annexed as Parcel B.

On information and belief that The City of New York is the owner of the parcel of land known and describe on the tax map of the said The City of New York as Lots 65 and 68, in Block 3266, which parcels are indicated on the map hereto annexed as Parcel D.

That part of said Parcel D was conveyed by a deed, of which the following is an abstract:

Joseph H. Godwin and Phebe Ann his wife to William J. Majory, Andrew J. Doone and Benjamin H. Sealy, of the Town of Yonkers, County of Westchester and State of New York, Trustees of School District No. 3 of the Town of Yonkers, Westchester and State of New York, and their successors in office. Deed-Dated July 11, 1872, recorded, Liber 814, p 280, Westchester County.

Conveys, beginning at a point on the west side of the Old Boston Road, where the line of lands now or lately belonging to Aaron K. Boughton, intersects the lands of the said Joseph H. Godwin; thence southwesterly along the land of the said Aaron K. Boughton 120 feet 4 inches; thence northwesterly 51 feet 6 inches; thence northeasterly 209 feet 6 inches; thence southwesterly along the Old Boston Road 75 feet; thence southeasterly along the said Old Boston Road 43 feet as per survey hereto annexed, made by M. J. Mack, of Fordham, Civil Engineer, to the point or place of beginning; said plot containing an area of 10,000 square feet.

Annexed hereto is a copy of the above mentioned survey made by M. J. Mack, as recorded in said Liber 814 of Conveyances, at page 280.

That the remaining part of said Parcel D was conveyed by a deed, of which the following is an abstract:

Aaron K. Boughton and Sarah L., his wife, to The Mayor, Aldermen and Commonalty of the City of New York. Deed-Dated July 29, 1887. Recd. Lib. 2085, p. 157, New York County.

Conveys, beginning at southwest corner of Boston Road and Bailey avenue (formerly Vermilyea avenue, so-called), as the said Bailey avenue is now widened; thence northwesterly along the said Boston Road 163 feet and 61-100ths of a foot; thence southwesterly on a line somewhat parallel with Bailey avenue, 114 feet 7 inches; thence easterly nearly at right angles to Bailey avenue 154 feet and 6-100ths of a foot to Bailey avenue; thence northerly along Bailey avenue 59 feet and 52-100ths of a foot to beginning. Being same premises shown on the annexed map or survey made by James E. Serrell, City Surveyor, dated 20 and 22 July, 1887, which map or survey is hereby made a part of this conveyance.

Annexed hereto is a copy of the above mentioned map or survey made by James E. Serrell, as recorded in said Liber 2085 of Conveyances, at page 157.

On information and belief that the above mentioned deeds are the last recorded deeds affecting said Parcel D, and that subsequently to the making of the said deeds, the City of New York by operation of law and devolution of title became the owner of the land indicated as said Parcel D.

Your petitioners are about to have a partition sale of the said premises Parcel B, and for that purpose they have had a survey made of said Parcel B so as to accurately define the area, boundary lines and limits of said Parcel B. Your petitioners' surveyor reports that by reason of the indefiniteness and uncertainty as to the exact location of the southwesterly corner of the old Albany Post Road and the old line of Vermilyea Avenue, and by reason of the difference in the location of said corner, as the same is shown on the tax map of The City of New York, and as shown on the damage map prepared by The City of New York, the exact location of the dividing line between said Parcel B and said Parcel D cannot be determined with certainty, by referring to or relying upon the descriptions set forth in the above mentioned deeds, but your petitioners' said surveyor states that the correct location of the said dividing line is approximately as shown upon the said tax map of the City of New York.

Your petitioners are willing to accept the tax map boundary lines of said lots 65 and 68 in said Block 3265 (shown on the map hereto annexed as Parcel D) as the
