On close questioning, my father supported a Teass northern entrance into America by a Pennsylvania or perhaps the port of New Castle, Delaware. Only when researching in the right area was it relatively easy to find John Teas, with his son Thomas. John's will is on file in Pennsylvania. His signing location is Hanover Township Lancaster. The wills date is of 1740. Accordingly, the name Teass (or as it was spelled Teas) is on the well-established Scotch-Irish westward path. Family history recalls Thomas Teass, our ancestor, being issued marriage bonds in Augusta and marrying the German Katherine Ley. The Thomas documented trail through the valley of Virginia and into New London looks ever more likely to be Scottish and less likely English. It is of interest to know that Thomas lived a long and very adventurous life. (There is a 19th century book where his travel companion Crawford's trials are recorded). More evidence has come to support the Scotch-Irish Teass family background. A good one is the revolutionary record of a Nelson County, Virginia, Teas, expressly stating that he came from Ireland and he called out his families' original location as county Donegal of Ulster where present Teasses are still found.



    John was Scotch-Irish from Ulster.  For many of the Scots in Ulster a change in the land rate (99 year rental) terms and dry spells sent them over into America in the period 1714 through 1719.  They entered by way of Philadelphia or nearby ports.  They passed through south east Pennsylvania into settled into central Pennsylvania, and then shortly moved southward into Maryland and Virginia.  John however did not get this far in that he died in Hanover Pennsylvania leaving his son Tom. There may have been two other comeover brothers, Robert and Moses, to continue the migration and personal struggle.
     Our forefathers  living code was physical courage, honesty, neighborliness, thrift and loyalty to the family.  Until late in my life I honestly thought there were universal goals of individual but it is not so and the readers should be so warned.
    There is Johan Teis arriving in America at Philadelphia, Pa 1740, from Palatine Germany, however John Teas  had a recording receive the indentured servant in 1738.  A Charles Donelly was assigned by George Karr to John Teas of Lancaster County on May 21st of 1746 as indentured servant for some 4 years.  He, Charles, came over on the snow (a type of ship-boat), HAPPY RETURN, from Ireland.  Teas was described as a Yeoman. John Teas shown as settlement 9 March 1738.  
    There is a 1740 record of a John Teas marring in Maryland, yet to be verified.

Lancaster was known as Hickory Town in the 17th century. My father H.A.Teass Sr. at one time said to me that the come overs consisted of three brothers and they landed up north (Penn or Md) in sea port having two Words He could never quite remember the name unfortunately. New Castle would be a very good candidate. Visiting Teass families in Ulster, it was common family remembrance the Teass went into Philadelphia and continue to do so up until the 1920. Further they recall parts of the Teass going into Canada, and New Zealand. However they could not recall any tradition of pre 19th Century Teass going to America.

   In Lancaster County Deed book p 75 their is listed a deed into John Teass from William Bertrum agent for land in 1736.

    I have ordered the come over CD record #170.  2-18-99.  Further

there may be a John Teas (s) marriage record from Md on CD 224.



The John Tease who appears in the Augusta County records (?) must be a brother of Joseph Teas. The simple fact of the uncommon of the name is evidence. John Teas wife appears to have Martha Steele, daughter of David Steele. In 1756 Samuel Steele is one of those appointed to appraise Joseph Tease's estate, and in 1767/68 when the vestry processioned, the boundaries of property, Samuel Steele's name appears just below William Tease in the list of property owners



Notes for MARTHA STEELE: Some researchers have placed the birthdate of Martha Steele, daughter of David Steele at "abt. 1728", but it is clear that from David Steele's wil that she was already married (probably to John Teas) before the writing of David Steele's will in 1747 (and probably had been for several years). In addition, Martha (probably this Martha), wife of John Teas had already had a daughter with John Teas (accordingly also named Martha), that was born about 1728, which would have placed this Martha Steele's birthdate no later than 1712. Since David Steele's birthdate has been listed by some researchers as early as "1679", it is certainly plausible that this Martha Steele's birthdate would have been in the range (1710-1712) to have been both a daughter of David Steele and the wife of John Teas (b. abt. 1700, d. abt. 1750 according to some sources) of Augusta County, Virginia.

The following Augusta County, Virginia record seems to prove Martha as the daughter of David Steele:

BRIGADIER GENERAL ANDREW LEWIS COMMANDER OF ALL VIRGINIA MILITIA TROOPS AT THE TIME OF INDEPENDENCE JULY 6 1776

In 1774, later Brigadier General Andrew Lewis, then a Colonel, and from Botetourt County, Virginia then, was the victorious commander at The Battle of Point Pleasant on the Ohio River in present-day West Virginia, considered by some as the first battle of the American Revolution, occurring only a few days before the First Continental Congress met regarding independence.

General Lewis recruited 1000 American frontiersmen from Virginia to march over the mountains of Virginia to Point Pleasant.

A forced march over more than a hundred miles, it was the largest military force of Americans ever assembled up to that time and Colonel Lewis personally took his frontier fighters into battle.


STATUE TO ANDREW LEWIS AT POINT PLEASANT, WEST VIRGINIA

Andrew Lewis' success against a large Indian force out to ambush him there resulted in George Washington's recommendation to the Continental Congress that Andrew Lewis become the General of the American Armies during the Revolution. Andrew Lewis declined the honor in favor of George Washington to head all the American forces in the Revolution.

Colonel Charles Lewis, brother of Andrew Lewis, who earlier in the French and Indian War, in 1763-64 had rescued McCord children from the French and Indians in western Pennsylvania, was in 1774 Commander of the Augusta County, Virginia militia forces. Colonel Andrew Lewis had earlier been Commander of the Augusta County militia. Colonel Charles Lewis lost his life at The Battle of Point Pleasant.



LETTERS FROM GEORGE WASHINGTON:

To MAJOR ANDREW LEWIS Fort Loudoun, July 29, 1757.

   Sir: You are ordered forthwith to march with all the Draughts which are at this place belonging to your own Company and Capt. Woodwards, together with Capt. Spotswoods, to Dickinsons plantation, on the cow-pasture; where I expect you will meet Captn. Woodward on his march to Vauses. When a junction of these three Companies is formed, you are, if the ravages of the Enemy, and circumstances of the Inhabitants, do not render other dispositions necessary, to detach Capt. Woodwards whole company; and an officer and 25 men of Captn. Spotswoods, to occupy Vases fort and, (if you think proper) the posts on Cuttawba, and at Campbells place: and with the rest you are to proceed to Dickinson's fort; where you are to order Lt. Bullet, and that part of your company under his command, to join you. 
   I can not at this distance, with the least degree of propriety, pretend to order a disposition of your command further than to advise you, not to divide it into too small parties. You are nevertheless to assist any body of Inhabitants, which may have gathered together in certain places, and need protection, but to appoint no more men to this service, than what are absolutely necessary to act upon the defensive, reserving as many as possible under your immediate direction, at Dickensons fort, to turn out in pursuit of the Enemy, when you hear they are about. 
   You will have the direction of the aforesaid Companies, till further orders, and to you they are to apply for instructions, to you make the returns, as required in my general instructions; and from you I expect them myself. 
   You will deliver Captn. Woodward the Kettles sent for his company. You will receive from me £21.18. the contents of a recruiting accompt of Capt. Hogg which you are desired to pay him. You will also receive £30.4.2 value of sundry Servants enlisted in that part of your company lately under Captn. Hogg's command: And I shall be glad if you will settle this matter, and pay the Masters according to appointment, which is as follows; Charles Campbell for Mark Donally, £9. to Wm. Lewis, for Francis Adams, £13.11.6 To Andrew Duncan, for Thomas Davis, £7.12.8. 
   You will likewise receive £2.12 to be paid to the following Soldiers, in the following sums, agreeably to their several accompts handed in by Lt. Bullet: To John Heart, 8/ John Leak, 8/ Mark Donally, 4/ and Moses Gawin 32/. 
   You must apply to the Surgeon of the Regiment for a small assortment of medicines, which Mr. Fleming has promised to administer to the sick of your Detachment. For other directions, I refer you to my General Instructions herewith delivered. 



To MAJOR ANDREW LEWIS Fort Loudoun, April 21, 1758.

   Sir: I do not yet know, whether any of the Levies raised by the newly appointed Officers, in consequence of the late Act of Assembly, will fall to our share; and as we want about 130 men to complete the Virginia Regiment, I earnestly recommend, that you will use the most efficacious means in your power to recruit your quota in Augusta, and its Borders: Farther than this District I wou'd not have you send Officers recruiting, as they must be ready to join you as soon as the Troops are ordered to this place. I have no money to send you for this purpose (which is a misfortune) but you may give the Recruits the strongest assurances, in my name, that they shall, upon their arrival at this place, receive each man £10 and a suit of Clothes, advantage of the Recruits for the New Regiment. I would have you send Lt. Crawford 4 directly to this place; he is well acquainted in those parts, and I hope from such encouragement, will be able to pick up some clever fellows. 

[Note:Lieut. John Crawford. ]

   I have so often, and earnestly recommended the due practice of the Soldiers in their Exercises, that it is needless, I hope, to urge it again to [you] in this letter. But I must desire, that you will take great pains to get all your Arms straightened, and the men taught to shoot well at Targets, as that is an highly necessary qualification in our Service. 
   I offer my Compliments to Captn. McNeill, and all the Officers, and am, Sir, etc. 


To MAJOR ANDREW LEWIS April 26, 1758.

   Sir: I have this instant and not before, received the Presidents orders to direct the Captains of the 1st. Virginia Regim't to compleat their Companies with all possible expedition, to 100 Rank and file each. The enclosed is a copy of the Instructions which I have given the Officers sent out from this place. You may give the same to yours; with this only difference; that all the Officers you can possibly spare for this service, be directed to rendezvous, the 10th. of May, at Staunton, if you shall not have marched before for this place; and to follow you as fast as possible, if you have. 
   I have received no money yet to carry on this Service; but shall this day send down to Williamsburgh for some. 
   You are not to delay a moment in marching to this place, after you are relieved; and orders, I believe, are issued to the Militia for that purpose. Take great care to distribute the Militia properly, according to the numbers that may come out. l scarcely know what direction to give you about the Country Stores (ammunition and Tools, I mean) as I can not tell in what manner the Militia will be provided with those Things. The tools, I think, if they are not absolutely necessary there, ought to be brought to this place: as they certainly will be wanted here. The Pay-Master will appoint a time to meet your Companies pay-rolls at Staunton; and you must punctually observe it. I am etc.
