The name as there written has generally been taken to be "' Willett,” and is so printed in the New York Geneal. and Biog. Record. Mr. Riker makes it “ Tellett.” My impression is that she was Sarah Teller, a daughter of William Teller, merchant, of Albany, and half sister to Helena, the wife of Francis Rombouts.—D. H. C."
