Hello Q. David Campbells recollections should of been from his tax lists and militia lists. Yet he would of known George Teater for many years, They both served as Sgts in William Campbells co Lord Dunmore war,. A secong note for George Teater is Sgt George William Teetor 59 days Dark Complection.. This matchs the family bible of the Poe family whom George Teaters son Lewis Craig married a Poe girl. Here again he was named as George William Teater. William Teterton married Elizabeth Gibson but did not name his children by name. She was sister of Walter Gibson the Regulator and White Tuscarora chief. John Gibson William GibsonJames Gibson brothers James Gibsons eldest son was Samuel Gibson, both Samuel and James are found on the deeds adjecent to George Teater at the bakers tract on the Midddle fork of the Holston. William Teterton had one brother Samuel Teterton who removed to Surry Virginia with his inlaws the Benjamin Evans and Thomas Evans and John Evans.
He is generaly listed as Teeder Teder ect, Within is boundry apppeared Jacob Teder. This family moved to beaufort with benjamin tedder george tedder sr george tedder jr thomas tettor, by 1757 they werein Rowan co as Thomas Evans Benjamin Evans George Teeder sr ---- Teeter Jr Jacob Teeder and a Jacob Teater. At best Samuel Gibson Teater was named after either Samuel Gibson the uncle or Samuel Gibson elder cousin who lived next to his younger brother George. All of these Tyrrell andBeaufort Tedders Tetertons moved to Johnson Duplin Dobbs Pitt Lenior by 1761 as Tettor Teder Teterton although Samuel Gibson Teater was mustered and taxed as Teater Teeter ect he signed his signature asTEATERTON,
Since 2 family letters name George Teater as going into Kentucky with his inlaw Jonas Griffith on Boones 1st trips the it shows they where origined from NC. Daniel Boone also summened Capt Samuel Gibson Teater away from from ft Doddridge to be the deputy commander of the siege of Boonesboroug. Again demonstrates alongwith time confidence and friendship which could of only occured during youthfull days in NC not mention Samuel Teaters far more experinced in Fort and siege warfare than Daniel Boone. The year before Samuel Teater was so well prepared to defend fort Doddridge the Indians went completleyby his fort both brothers George and Samuel fought in every major battle during the French Indian war, George continued on into the Cherokee war and then has few notes as Samuel until 1768, Except Samuel was listed as Capt Teeter in Rowan co NC 1766 . Samuel may have had a wife in Rowan co during that time. he was rather old when he married mary Doddridge 1769. All musters of the companies of both Samuel and Georgeshow all the men were English Scotch Irish virginia and NC orginiated. Lord Dunmores war same thing. Out of all the children of George Teater all of them married Scotch Irish part Indian or Melungeons from North Carolina. All of Samuels chidren married in the same fashion no Swiss Dutch German inlaws
George Teater spent his early days in Kentucky with only his Negro Slaves no family. His son Samuel lived in the Downing Station with his mixed blood wife Scotch Melungeon Elizabeth Ray In any case both George and Samuel headstones demonstrate Samuel was born in 1735 and george 1737 therefore they were not thethe John George Teter Dieter born 1739 and 1742, Those fellows are buried in Penn.
