Trumbull Farm in Pelham Sold To Satisfy Foreclosure Judgment in 1880

I can recall researching and considering the location of the Trumbull Farm in Pelham.  Last night I ran across a brief item published in 1880 about the sale of the farm to satisfy a foreclosure judgment.  I have not yet been able to locate my research on the location of the farm.  Thus, I am transcribing the item below to document it for further work.

"The Trumbull farm, in the Town of Pelham, containing 105 acres of land, was sold at the Courthouse, in White Plains yesterday, to satisfy a foreclosure judgment obtained by the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New-York against Charlotte Coburn, individually and as Executrix of the will of James M. Coburn and other defendants.  William H. J. Hurst of New-York, was the purchaser for $20,700."
