Years ago, I was sent a photocopy of a small hand typed book concerning the PITTS Family genealogy.There was a small section devoted to a Teague family that connected to the Pitts line.Does anyone recognize the following information:
Edward Teague, b. - d. 1697, Baltimore County, MD son - William Teague (no vitals) married Isabella ____ son Moses Teague (says 2nd son, d. 1785) M. #1 - Elizabeth Loflin; #2 - Rachel Taylor. Moses son Abraham Teague, b. - d. 1811 (does not say who was his mother) married Hannah BRAZIER Moses and Hannah had a daughter named Elizabeth Teague.
Teague line #2 -
John Teague (1750-1823), married Martha LEDFORD their son - William B. Teague (1773-1838) married: Elizabeth Teague, daughter of Moses and Hannah Teague.
William B. and Elizabeth's daughter Martha Teague married Isaac Pitts.And from this point, I don't know if the information pertains to me or not.
I am interested in the JOHN TEAGUE information only - the Edward Teague info is very well documented, and our DNA showed we are not of his line.
Further reading in this old book stated that John Teague was a ship's captain:"John Teague was master of the Ship Phenix of Bristol, arriving in Virginia in 1669."
It then goes into some explanation of the Edward Teague line, and then comes back to John:
"John Teague operated a general store, a blacksmith shop and a distillery, comprising the nucleus of 'Teague Town', south of Kernersville, North Carolina, in the late 1700's and early 1800's.Beginning in about 1809, his son, William B. Teague took over those business enterprises.John Teague was listed in Stokes County tax records as owning 498 acres from 1790 through 1806, then smaller acreages until his death in 1823."
As I stated, our DNA results show that we do NOT descend from the famous Edward Teague line.The nearest possible connection would be back at least 550-600 years.Obviously, we come down from a different Teague.
My gr-gr-grandfather was William Swaim Teague (1834, TN; 1922, TX)If this old book is correct, then two separate Teague lines did connect, and this would account for some of the Edward Teague names in our families. It might also account for our DNA showing we don't belong to Edward.
ANYONE who might descend from this John Teague, or have additional information or clues that might help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
