In 1738 Charles Clinton surveyed several thousand acres that make up the Cheesecock Patent. His work is locally and commonly known as the "Marble Book". This patent contains metes and bounds of land within southern Orange County and parts of what became Rockland County. The "Marble Book" is now available to view in the County Clerks Historical documents online. You can view them here
