I am posting this also here so it will be available to all.
Yes. My family is closely related to this group of Tellers. My gr grandmother was Jane Elizabeth Teller. She had two brothers Dr. Howard Teller and Marshall Teller. Her mother and father were Marshall Teller and Elizabeth Drury. Gr Grandma Jane was born in 1868 and she died in 1970. She was born on a farm in Holland Patent NY and died at my parents home in Westernville. She was an interesting lady.
From the research of my parents Arnold J. Hook and Marion Katherine Kier. Jane Elizabeth Teller was dad's grandmother. She was also known as Jennie.
Ahasuerues Teller a descendent of the first William Teller was born in NY City in the year of 1757/ His parents were William Teller and Anna Elsworth.
Ahasuerues Teller was active in the Revolutionary War. He mentions this in his application for his pension. He stated that he was with Webster's Regiment NY Militia, he served with Col. Van Renesseler, fought in the Burgoyne campaign, he was at Fort Edward, Dobbs Ferry, West Point, German Flatts and Johnson City.
Ahasuerues Teller came to the town of Western, NY with his four children, in the year of 1820. He applied for his pension in 1834, died in the year of 1849 at the age of 92 and buried in the Wells Cemetery, Frenchville, New York.
Ahasuerus Teller was Baptized April 3, 1757 Dutch Reformed Church NYC and died May 16 1849 Westernville, NY
Note: We do not know anything about Mary except with the information from census records from Oneida County. Ahasuerus was a Revolutionary war veteran and probably the last war pensionier from Westernville. The Teller family father's, sons and grandsons were all soldiers in the war.
There were two children William born 1809 and died 1876 Westernville NY.
Daniel - this my line. This would be Grandma Jane's grandfather. She said he used to call Ahasuerues the "Old Dutchman". Daniel was born July 13, 1800 and died March 31, 1850 Westernville NY.
Daniel married Eliza Tubbs. This is the family with the children buried in the Buck Hill cemetery. It was very said because Three died of scarlet fever within hours and a day. Marshall Teller was born April 30, 1847 in Boonville NY and died in 1877 in Utica. They then split the children up. Elizabeth Drury Teller was able to bring the family back together later.
You can put this together with the information posted. I have a lot of interesting information because my parents traveled to Albany and went through the archives.
