An endorsement was made by chief justice Elmsley that the claim of his wife was to wait for the U.E. list as the name of Henry Bush did not appear to be entered on it. Sipes claim was not recommended. He afterwards presented a second petition on 12th May 1797, stating tht he had lived in the province since the year 1871 as a settler. He was recommended for 200 acres, and his name was subsequently entered upon the U.E. list as it appeared tht he had been issued provisions at Niagara in 1786.
