I noticed a John. John Jacob Teeter. who was confederate soldier mentioned in 1889 bledsoe is the line that your from? is see already one of his sister was married to a Smith I extracted this from the germanna colony manuscript.
note there were 2 george teters both living there, yet a noticed the spelling is jeter for one george, the jeter teters were french prostetants jeter jeeter geator teator teter tedder. thats how i have them to have spelled thier names. The mention of the Henkel family brings to mind another Germanna family, that of George Teter, of Schwaigern (the home of several Germanna families).The Germanna George Teter must be distinguished from another George Teter who lived in the Valley at the same time.It is seldom that there were as many marriages between two families as there were between the Teter and the Henkel families.
George Teter, born in Schwaigern, married Maria Margretha Luttman, in 1720.In 1727, Hans Jorg Dieter went to the police court in Schwaigern to obtain an exit visa (and to pay the taxes due on his property).The baptism paper of Rev. Paul Henkel in America identifies Georg Teter with Schwaigern.The Dieters arrived in Philadelphia in 1727, and lived in Pennsylvania for a few years.They then moved to Virginia, where George Teter (Jeter) obtained a patent, in Orange County, for 200 acres on the south side of the Robinson River in 1735/6.The patent was adjacent to Michael Cook, who was also from Schwaigern.George Teter died about ten years after this, for Margaret Teter obtained a bond in the administration of his estate in 1743/4.She signed for herself as Maria Mariagreda Dieter.
The record of the family grows hazy for a period.Disposition of the land and the remarriage of Maria Margaret are unknowns.Eight children are known, but two apparently died as infants, and information on one daughter is scarce.Among the knowns:
1.George (b. 1730), married, about 1764, Mary Ann Margaret Henkel. 2.Paul (b. ca 1732), married Rebecca Henkel. 3.Mary Barbara (b. May 1734), married, first, Rev. Jacob Henkel, and, second, David Harman. 4.Philip (b. ca 1733 - 36), married Susanna Henkel 5.Rosina, married Marin Peterson.
I am not sure just how the Paul Henkel, mentioned here recently, fits into this picture, but I have few doubts about his being a part of this picture.The Henkels apparently never lived in the Germanna community, but, with all of the marriages between the Henkel and Teter families, it would appear that Henkels should be honorary members.
The marriages between the Henkels and Teters took place in North Carolina, I believe.My comments are based on an article on George Teter by Franklin Cockran in Beyond Germanna. (17 Jan 01)ithink when it comes to this line teter hinkle you should contact the henkle bulletin, who are the experts on the teter hinkle branch of rockingham and pendelton co s.
I noticed something strange of John Teaters Washington Co on his deeds he is Teaters but on the tax lists he is Tuter which in that case is from North Carolina i think, yet Jacob Teater of Russel co claims he was from wash co. therefore a son of John Tuter Teaters ect. another thought is your Jacob is near another Tedder family of the Emory river Roane. they are the Thomas Tedder line also spelled Teater. from George Tedder and Thomas Tettor of Dobbs North Carolina
