Elizabeth Teller, daughter of William Teller and Margaret Duncanson, was born in 1652.1 She died at Albany, Albany Co., New York, before 29 April 1720, when her will was proved.2

Elizabeth married (1) Abraham van Tricht at Albany, about 1671;3 she married (2) Melgert van der Poel at Albany, 29 June 1692. The ancestry of both men is unknown (or not traced here).4

Elizabeth left a will dated 2 February 1719/20, and proved at Albany, 29 April 1720:
In den Namen des Heeren, Amen,
"ELIZABETH VAN HER POEL, widow, of the city of Albany.
Leaves legacy to daughter Ariantie, and to Margaret, wife of Volckert Dowe, " my great looking glass which was my mother's."
Also legacies to daughters Maria, wife of Johanes Ninhagen; Magdalene, wife of Abraham Lansing.
"My daughter Margaret is to have the house in Albany, between the house of William Haagens, and Philip De Forest."
Legacy to daughter Helena, wife of Jan Barents Wemp.
I make Oliver Teller and Hermanns Wendail, executors.
Witnesses, Stephen Groesbeck, Jacob Beekman, Rutger Bleecker.

In 1725, the executors renounced their executorships and Volkert Douw, son-in-law, was granted administration.2
