The Rev. John Ewing (1732-1802), David Rittenhouse (1732-1796), and Thomas Hutchins (1730-1789), "Geographer to the United States," served as mediators representing Congress; commissioners for Massachusetts were Timothy Edwards (1738-1813), Samuel Williams (1743-1817), professor of mathematics at Harvard College, and Theodore Sedgwick (1746-1813); "Agents" for the State of New York were Gerard Bancker (1749-1799), Simeon DeWitt (1756-1834), Surveyor General of New York, and Philip John Schuyler (1733-1804). Points of disagreement early in the meeting centered upon which kind of compass to use, whether or not earlier surveys taken in 1784 should be considered valid, and how to determine fairly such variables as the amount of change in magnetic field which had occurred since the 1773 meeting and survey.
