    • In 1724 he and his brother-in-law, John Alsop, purchased the central portion of the "Chambers Southerland Patent," in the Town of New Windsor [ed- N.Y.], on the west shore of the Hudson River. There they built a wharf,storehouse and established a sloop freight and passenger line, which ran at stated intervals to and from New York City. They also started and maintained for a number of years a flat-boat ferry at that place, which carried horses and cattle, as well as human beings to and from a point near what afterwards became Fishkill Landing, on the opposite shore. This ferry, which was the first of its kind established on the central Hudson, was extensively patronized previous to the Revolution.
