Note: We suggest you visit the Croton Westchester History website here. It has extensive into on the Teller Family of Teller's Point, here is a quote from that site:  "Cornelius Van Bursum was the first to purchase Croton Point from the Indians in 1682. A few years later William and Sara Teller were given permission to live on the point and operate an Indian trading post. In the 18th century the area came to be known as Teller’s Point. Soon after, Stephanus Van Cortlandt incorporated the property into his Cortlandt Manor. By the end of the 18th century the Tellers, who married into the Van Cortlandt family, were in full possession of Croton Point. The Van Cortlandt Manor House still stands on the Croton River east of Croton Point Park." 

This is a beautiful old 1870's CDV photo of Julia, who appears to be in her thirties. It was found in Berkshire County MA. This photo has a pink reverse with fancy photographer's backmark showing an urn and flowers on a Victorian table and shelf. A beautiful piece with lots of great genealogy clues.
