My 4th great grandfather was Samuel E Teaster b. 1755 and married Mary Elizabeth Daniels. Samuel apparently came here from Scotland with his father Nathaniel. Although the info about coming from Scotland is still not certain.
There is quite a bit of info to substantiate Samuel's info.However, I can only get as far as his father Nathaniel Teaster, b.1730.The info I have collected is only bits and pieces from reading and searching and I'm not sure of that either.
The forum has stated that the original last name may have been McTeaster.Someone else stated that they believe his wife was Mary Foster from the Valley Cruis area of NC.
I also found that he fought as a colonial soldier for the south. The 1790 NC Head of household census shows both Nathaniel and Samuel listed as Teaster.
Can anyone add to this information for me or either correct me if any of the info is wrong?
