N.Y. Navigation Law Section 123
Marks on logs and timber to be recorded

Every person who shall run any logs or timber down any river or stream recognized by law or use as a public highway shall select some mark different from any mark previously recorded, and shall put the same on each log or stick of timber in some conspicuous place, and shall cause such mark to be recorded in the county clerk’s office of each county in or through which such river or stream runs. The county clerk shall be entitled to the sum of fifty cents for recording such mark, to be paid by the person having the same recorded, and a copy of said entry, certified by the clerk, shall be presumptive evidence that the logs or timber so marked are the property of the person by whom such mark was selected and recorded.
