Bahamas DNA Project


Bahamas Y-Chromosome STR Test Results other surnames will be added when they join

Understanding Results: If two males match 21 out of 25 markers or better they likely share a direct paternal ancestor in a genealogical time frame (since the introduction of surnames). The closer the match, the more likely their shared ancestor lived more recently.

Five families (LIGHTBOURN, MAJOR, MALONE, MINNS, and WEATHERFORD) share a direct paternal line ancestor with their surname with another direct paternal line that was never in the Bahamas. Y chromosome results reveal at least two different families in the Bahamas for the following surnames: BAKER, BRENNEN, JOHNSON, KNOWLES, MAURA ROBERTS, TAYLOR, and WEATHERFORD.

Therefore both Parris parents where Black Irish. by DNA standards back to 12 generations.. This means that all the brothers George Parris Richard Pearis Robert Pearis thier offspring where connected by a male dark line from central and North Africa into Ireland to America, all such descendants carry the gene. This could be another reason as to why to the family of George Teater was so Dark Complected.

It seems a waste of time to move in regards to Black German bloodlines when its solid scientfically proven these people where Black Irish. If George Teater did have Black German blood it would of happened when his family came from France to Nassau 1620 1630s.--Parris 18:59, 20 October 2008 (EDT)

GO TO THIS WEBSITE. click on zacharia ray. read the explanation of the social identifiable group of dark skinned teater of George Teater and extended family.


The earliest confirmed Ray ancestor of Bob is Zachariah Ray born ca 1750-1765, probably in Virginia or North Carolina.

Conventional tradition among his descendants state he is the son of Hezekiah Ray, a Scotsman. However, I can find no evidence of a Hezekiah Ray who would come close to matching as a father of Zachariah. I found no evidence in the records of the Church of Scotland indicating the existence of a Hezekiah Ray. In fact, Scottish records spell the name Rae.

At least one researcher has declared Zachariah to be the son of Samuel Rae of Albemarle County, Virginia. This Samuel Rae does have some documentation and is of the right age to be Zachariah's father. For this reason, I have placed him on this website as the father of Zachariah.

Samuel Rae did spend his adult life in Albemarle County. It should be noted that Zachariah's first boss and his wife both came from Albemarle. Zachariah also named his first born son Samuel, following a practice of many to name the first son after a grandparent.

This same researcher also stated that the parents of Samuel were Thomas Ray/Rhea and Ursula Smith. Other researchers say Samuel's father was Thomas' brother Andrew, who was married to an Ellender. The evidence I have is not completely conclusive, but, from my view, Andrew has the edge.

Samuel had a brother named Thomas who died 24 March 1777 in Surry County North Carolina. This death is documented by county records. This is the same county where Zachariah was known to be living in 1781. Thomas left a widow named Ursula (Thompson) who is documented as living in Stokes County N.C. (separated from Surry in 1787). Sons may include Samuel, Benjamin, Andrew, George, and William.

 Also of interest are the Ray's of Wilkes County, which is the County just to the west of Surry. In this county lived the in-laws of Zachariah Ray. The actual residence of these Ray's was west of the Blue Ridge, in present day Ashe County. The 1793 Tax list shows a Chesley Ray, living next door to Elijah Evans, previously of Surry/Stokes county and soon to be Garrard County Kentucky. The grandson of Elijah would marry the great grand-daughter of Zachariah Ray. I suspect Chesley Ray to be a in-law of Elijah Evans. Also on the 1793 Wilkes tax list, in the same community, were Chisleu and Sanders Ray. The 1790 Wilkes County census list a Dicey Ray, Elizabeth Ray, and a Jesse Ray. The 1800 Wilkes County census lists a James Ray. It is possible that most of these Ray's moved on to Wilkes County Georgia. 

The earliest record I have of Ray's in Wilkes County is that of Ambrose Ray, supposedly born ca 1724 and marrying Mary Buntin ca 1749. This marriage is disputed by others. Ambrose supposedly had a daughter Elizabeth, b 16 Feb 1749, who married Nathaniel Vannoy 1774, in Wilkes County and lived on Lewis Fort Creek. Ambrose is listed on the 1782 Wilkes County Tax Roll.

NOTE John Collins was the Grandson of Meredy Collins the founder of the Floyd Co KY branch of the Melungeons caaled and enumerated as Indians. These are the in laws of Parris Teater thru Abslaom Teater. Nancy Scalf was born March 1788 in North Carolina. Her birth is listed as 1789 in various places. A statement by Polly Scalf Trent in support of her father’s pension in Hawkins County, Tennessee reveals that Nancy was her older sister. This is the only information obtained at this date to confirm which child was the oldest child of John and Edeah Carlisle Scalf.

Edeah (aka Edy) Carlisle Scalf listed birth dates of both her oldest daughters at two separate intervals in her deposition for her pension benefits after the death of her husband, John Scalf, Sr.. In one statement Edeah stated Polly was born 1788 and Nancy, 1789. In another statement, she stated Nancy was born in 1788 and Polly in 1789. This was likely due to her age at the time of the statement.

As with most census records, the estimated dates of birth for these two daughters range in different years for both of these girls from census to census. Considering the fact that John and Edeah were married 1787, the statement of Edy concerning the months and years of birth, coupled with Polly Scalf Trent’s statement, we can safely assume that Nancy Scalf Collins was born in 1788 in North Carolina, and probably in Edgecombe County.

Tracking Nancy Scalf Collins has certainly proven to be a challenge and we are still uncertain as to the husband of Nancy Scalf. Many avenues have been followed concerning the husband of Nancy but for the most part have been dead-ends. An effort to narrow down the possibilities of who the husband of Nancy Scalf Collins might have been is offered here for research purposes for this line of the family.

Correspondence with some of the Collins family researchers has failed to produce the name of Nancy’s husband but it seems likely that at least one Nancy Collins has been confused and might possibly be our Nancy Scalf Collins.

As most families did during the early years of settlement of this country, the Collins family repetitiously named their children after their parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters. As with the Scalf family, there are numerous folks of the same name in these lines. Separation by birth years, wills, death records, children’s names, deeds and numerous other records is generally the only way one can distinguish one name from another. Research of the Collins family is not intended in these writings; however, information obtained in my research of Nancy Scalf will be offered here as a guideline for researchers. This information may or may not be helpful.

As stated above, Nancy Scalf was born in either March or April of 1788, probably in Edgecombe County, North Carolina, as this is where her parents married in 1787 and are believed to have been living at that time. Her mother stated two separate birth dates for Nancy and Polly so we cannot be certain of the month of her birth but from the statement of her sister, Polly Scalf Trent, we can be certain that Nancy was born first and in 1788.

The marriage record for John Scalf, Sr. and Edeah Carlisle has not been found at this time; however, his wife, Edy Carlisle Scalf, stated that she married her husband, John Scalf Sr. in the county of Edgecombe in the state of North Carolina on February 15, 1787.

Nancy’s parents left Edgecombe County where they are believed to have been living in the home of John’s father, Lewis Scalf, in 1790 and traveled to Surry County, North Carolina by 1800. The family was in Floyd County, Kentucky by 1810, Russell County, Virginia 1820 and 1830 and in Hawkins County, Tennessee by 1840. Her father died March 10, 1848 in Greene County, Tennessee.

Although the census records are the only documents that confirm where the John Scalf Sr., family was during this time, another document confirms that John Scalf, Sr. went to Russell County, Virginia before his move to Floyd County, Kentucky in 1810. This information was obtained from the statement of Polly Scalf Trent, sister of Nancy, in her deposition for the re-instatement of her father’s pension in Hawkins County, Tennessee in 1845.

In her statement, Polly Scalf Trent states, “that said John Scalf, sen. removed from said County of Wilkes into Russell County in the state of Virginia where he lived several years, thence into the state of Kentucky, thence into Hawkins County.”

Analysis of this statement reveals that John Scalf, Sr. was living in Russell County, Virginia 1806 – 1810. He appears on the 1800 Surry County, North Carolina census, then on the 1810 Floyd County, Kentucky census and then on the 1820 and 1830 Russell County, Virginia census.

The years between the census records could place John Scalf, Sr. at any location but we find that Polly was correct in her statement that he was in Wilkes County, North Carolina when he left as the Wilkes County court records show that he was charged, along with James Bogus for the theft of a hog in Wilkes County, North Carolina around 1805. Bogus left the area and John remained for a time but ultimately left. John probably thought he would have to suffer the consequences of this charge alone since Bogus had left. John in turn left the area and his brother, William, accepted the bond for John in the amount of $40 to guarantee his appearance in court. However, John fled the area as well. John’s father Lewis picked up the bond in 1807. A horse, cow and a few other items belonging to John were confiscated in 1805 before John left the area. The case was continued against Lewis until 1813 – 1814. It is unknown at this time as to how this case eventually turned out. It is assumed that John’s father, Lewis, eventually settled the case.

It is unknown by records whether John ever saw his father again or not but it is evident that some type of family connection remained for Patsy Counts Scalf stated that “Lewis was upwards of 100 years old when he died in Georgia many years ago.” This statement was made in 1845. There had to be some type of correspondence between the families for Patsy to have known when Lewis Scalf died. Whether John was guilty of the charge or guilty by association is unknown as no further records were found.

John could very well have gone to Russell County, Virginia before Floyd County, Kentucky, as Wilkes County, North Carolina is located in what is known as the New River Valley. This area was a very well traveled route of the early settlers moving down the valley into the Washington County, Virginia area and ultimately into Hawkins County, Tennessee and also into Kentucky via the Cumberland Gap. Russell County had been created in 1786 from Washington.

By the time John Scalf, Sr. arrived in Russell County, Virginia several Trent and Collins families were living in the area of Washington and Russell Counties. It is most likely here in one of these locations that Nancy and Polly Scalf met their husbands as well as Dicey Scalf Williams. The Williams, Collins and Trent families traveled down the New River Valley area very early on and some can be traced back to North Carolina by this route. It is also possible the Scalf family met some of these families along this route but it appears the Williams, Collins and Trent families were in Russell and Washington earlier than the Scalf family.

In 1806 when John Scalf, Sr. left Wilkes County, North Carolina, Nancy would have been 18 years old and Polly 17. Dicey would have only been six years old. Both Nancy and Polly would have been old enough to marry before 1820.

The 1806 Personal Property Tax List of Washington County, Virginia shows that John and Patrick Collins were living in Washington County, Virginia along with John and David Williams. This tax list can be found on the USGenWeb.

The 1806 Washington County, Virginia Personal Property Tax List Transcribed by Jeffrey C. Weaver, September 22, 1998.

Collins, John 2 - - 3 two white polls and three horses
Collins, Patrick 1 - - 1 one white poll and one horse
Williams, John 1 - - 2 one white poll and one horse
Williams, David 1 - - 1 one white poll and one horse

Several Williams families were living here in 1802 listed in the Upper District – Jesse Browning’s list. These were Shadrick Williams, Henry Williams, Samuel Williams, Richard Williams and James Williams all listed on Jesse Browning’s list.

Living in the lower district – Robert Tate’s list – were John Williams and Samuel Williams. Some of these families were living here as far back as 1788 and 1789 and appear in the Montgomery County, Virginia tax records.

The Collins families first appear on the tax lists of Washington County in 1806 but were also listed in the Montgomery County tax lists earlier.

A brief summary of the county creations might be in order here to better understand where these early settlers were living. Russell County was created in 1786 from Washington County, Virginia. Washington County, Virginia was created in 1776 from Fincastle and Montgomery. Montgomery was created from Botetourt and Fincastle in 1776. Botetourt was created from Augusta in 1769 and Fincastle was created from Botetourt in 1772 and abolished in 1776. Due to these county formations, the tax lists of Washington County, Virginia appear to overlap with the tax lists of Montgomery and Fincastle Counties in some years.

The New River Valley area consists of the counties lying along and connected to the North Carolina/Virginia border which are: Johnson, Ashe, Alleghany, Surry, Watauga, Wilkes and Yadkin Counties in North Carolina and Washington, Grayson, Carroll, Patrick, Smith, Wythe, Floyd, Tazewell, Bland, Pulaski, Montgomery, Tazewell, Giles and Roanoke with most of these counties being formed after these early families traveled through. 
At the time of the travels of the folks we are interested in, the main counties in the New River Valley area would have been Montgomery and Washington Counties in Virginia and Wilkes and Surry in North Carolina. Some of these folks lived along the Yadkin River in North Carolina. This should not be confused with Yadkin County, which was formed later. 

Surry Co., NC formed from Rowan. Wilkes was formed in 1777 from Surry and the District of Washington. Yadkin County was formed in 1850 from Surry.

Interesting, and very confusing to researchers is the district of Washington. This later became Washington County, Tennessee. Wilkes County was formed from parts of Surry and what was known as the Washington District of North Carolina. Washington District became Washington County, North Carolina before Tennessee became a state. When Tennessee became a state in 1796,Washington County, North Carolina became Washington County, Tennessee.

There is also a Washington County, North Carolina but again this is not the same county as Washington District or Washington County North Carolina/Tennessee. This Washington County was formed in 1799 from Tyrrell.

“The District of Washington was officially recognized as a part of the governmental structure of North Carolina. (The settlers had originally thought they were in Virginia, but on discovering that they were actually in NC, petitioned to be officially annexed.) Wilkes Co., NC was formed in 1777 from Surry and the District of Washington. In 1777, the District of Washington became Washington Co. (now TN). (q.v.)”

These early Collins, Williams and Trent settlers most likely met along the New River Valley area of the North Carolina and Virginia counties and the Scalf family might have been acquainted with them in North Carolina as they seemed to travel some of the same routes. However, Nancy, Polly, Dicey and possibly another sister, Betsy most likely met their husbands after their arrival in Russell or Washington County, Virginia and possibly even in Floyd County, Kentucky.

Nancy Scalf Collins’ family, along with Polly Scalf Trent and Dicey Scalf Williams, might have moved over to Kentucky at some point with their father’s family in his movements between Russell County, Virginia and Floyd and Clay County Kentucky but if so, these families returned to Russell County, Virginia and to Hawkins County, Tennessee where they appear to be enumerated in the 1830 and 1840 censuses.

The Collins family does not appear in the Russell County, Virginia tax lists until 1799 when Meridith Collins appears taxed with one white poll. There are several Collier families listed but the name remains the same throughout the tax lists and by this we assume that there was a Collier family in the area and this spelling was not a transcribing error.

Merady Collins (assumed to be Meredith) appears again in 1801 but is not found in 1800 in the tax lists. Meridith is not found after the 1801 Personal Property tax list but a James Collin appears in the 1810 Personal Property Tax list of Russell County.

However, Meredith Collins is found in Floyd County, Kentucky in 1810 at the same time John Scalf, Sr. appears in Floyd County, Kentucky. It appears that Meredith remains in Kentucky but John Scalf, Sr. returned to Russell County, Virginia by 1820 where at least three Collins families appear namely; Martin Collins, Isaac and Sarah Collins. James Collins is not found in Russell County after the 1810 Personal Property Tax list and it is presumed he has moved down to Hawkins County, Tennessee where a James Collins is found on the 1830 census.

In 1830 a John, Isaac and Sally Collins are found as head of house in Russell County, Virginia.

In 1840, Burgess, Edward, Sarah, and Amy Collins are found as head of house in Russell County, Virginia. Sarah is most likely the Sally listed in 1830.

By 1850, a very large number of the Collins family are living in Russell County, Virginia but the Scalf family has moved to Hawkins County, Tennessee by 1840 and a number of the Collins, Trent and Williams family are in the neighborhood.

From the above information, Meridith Collins was the only Collins family near John Scalf, Sr. in 1810 in Floyd County, Kentucky and was also in Russell County, Virginia but not found at the same time as John Scalf, Sr. was living there.

In tracing the Meredith Collins family, Meredith was age 45 or above in Floyd County, Kentucky. Meredith has two sons in the home ages 10 – 16. Nancy would have been at least five years older so it is doubtful she married either of these sons. It also appears that Nancy and Polly are in the home of their father in 1810 as there are two females listed with births estimated 1784 – 1794. No other Collins family was found in Floyd County, Kentucky in 1810.

By the enumeration of the 1820 census, there is a Bradley Collins living next door to Meredith in Floyd County and listed as either mulatto or “free persons of color.” Meredith’s family was also listed the same. This could have been an older son of Meredith but we have no way to determine this from this census. John Scalf, Sr. has returned to Russell County, Virginia by 1820.

In 1830 Meredith was found in Pike County, Kentucky. He is now 60 – 70 years old and born 1760 –1770. There is a male in the home age 10 – 15, presumed to be a grandson. Meredith was not found as head of house after this census and it is assumed he died before 1840.

In the 1820 Russell County, Virginia census there are two females who appear to be daughters in the home of John Scalf, Sr. These females would have been born 1794 – 1804. At least one of these females is believed to be Lydia. It is difficult to determine if the other is Dicey, or Betsy but Nancy and Polly appear to be married and in their own homes at this time.

Review of the 1820 census of Russell County, Virginia reveals three Collins families:

1) Sarah Collins head of house, 26 – 45, born 1775 – 1794.

2) Martin Collins head of house, 26 – 45, born 1775 – 1794

3) Isaac Collins 45 or over, born 1775 or before.

Due to the fact that John Scalf, Sr. made several trips back and forth between Kentucky and Virginia between census enumerations, a study of the Collins family head of house was undertaken in an effort to determine if one of these could have been the husband of Nancy.

Martin Collins would be a likely candidate in Russell County due to his age but it is believed by Collins researchers that Martin was not married to Nancy Scalf.

The head of house found in Kentucky in 1830 were Abraham, Bradley, Hiram, Amos and Elijah in Clay County, John in Madison County, Amy and Meredith in Pike County.

In the household of Hiram is one male under 5 years of age. There appears to be something wrong with this census, as there are no parents in this home.

Bradley is listed as 40 – 50 years old and born 1780 – 1790. Although the age fits, his wife is not in the home.

Amos Collins is 40 -50 and his wife is 30 – 40. The name of Amos’ wife is established by 1850 so Amos is ruled out as well.

Elijah Collins is 30- 40, born 1790 – 1800; however, there is no wife in this home. There is a female listed as 80 – 90 who is probably his mother. All of the above were ruled out as the husband of Nancy Scalf for various reasons.

In 1830 a John Collins appears as head of house in Russell County, Virginia. He is listed, as 20-30 years old and due to his age, was likely not the husband of Nancy. Sarah Collins is listed and is believed to be Sally from the 1820 census. Isaac is still living in Russell County but Martin is gone. Martin is believed to be the same Martin Collins that appears in the 1840 Hawkins County, Tennessee census.

Isaac Collins is gone from Russell by 1840 and due to his age, is presumed to have died. Burgess, Edward, Amy and Sarah Collins are the head of house in 1840 Russell County, Virginia. Burgess and Edward are also much younger.

In the 1830 census of Hawkins County, Tennessee is listed a large number of the Collins family; however, only two males fit the age category to have been the husband of Nancy; Benjamin Collins born 1780 – 1790; Wyatt Collins born 1780 – 1790 and if Nancy married someone older, then Ezekiel and James Collins would qualify as they were born 1770-1780. This James Collins is probably the same James Collins from the 1810 Personal Property tax list of Russell County, Virginia. Nothing is known of this James Collins.

By 1840 John Scalf Sr. and some of his children have moved to Hawkins County, Tennessee where they were enumerated on the 1840 census. Other than Edy Collins who appears to be the matriarch of the Collins family, Vardemon (Vardy) Collins appears to be the oldest Collins male in Hawkins County at this time. Vardy is 70-80, born 1760-1770. Edy is 80-90 and born 1740-1750. Vardy Collins is reported to have married Margaret “Peggy” Gibson.

This leaves Benjamin and James Collins. It is unknown who these two men married. However, in analyzing the 1830 and 1840 census the following is concluded:

In the 1830 Hawkins County, Tennessee census, there appear two men by the name of Benjamin Collins. One is older than the other. Along with these two men is a James Collins. All three of these men are listed as free persons of color as were a large number of the Collins family in Hawkins County in 1830. It is believed that one Benjamin Collins born 1790 - 1800 is the same as the one called Benjamin Collins, Jr. and listed on the 1850 Hancock County, census. His wife was Elizabeth.--Parris 21:33, 20 October 2008 (EDT)

A final note on the Bolens Bowlings ect. The Burton Bolen Bowling family marraiges to George Teaters family are to numerous to post. Most are the line of Parris Teater. See the Burton Grave Yard.


The following seems to be taken from GENEALOGICAL HISTORY OF THE MELUNGEON FAMILIES, By Mark French Jr. [Need full citation]

Uncle Wash Osborne of Copper Ridge near Dungannon in Scott County gave me more information about the Melungeons than anyone else. Uncle Wash's full name is George Washington Osborne.

From what I gathered from Uncle Wash, the Melungeons started coming to Wise and Scott Counties about 1820. These people came in about equal numbers from Kentucky from Newmans' Ridge and lower end of Lee County. A few came from North Carolina.

The first Collins family, who came to Scott County from Newmans Ridge were white.

From Kentucky came the following families; Collins, Gibsons, and Sextons. From Newman's Ridge; Collins, Littons and Bollings. Very few people with these names came from Newman's Ridge.

From Blackwater, Tennessee came the Sweeneys, Adkins, Lucas, Bollings, Goins and Baldwins.

Also the Melungeons came to Scott County from Letcher County, Kentucky near Whitesburg at a place called Lick Rock. These people lived in large numbers. Uncle Poke Gibson came to Scott from Letcher about 1820. He claimed to be Portuguese Indian. A few Littons came from Newman�s Ridge who are member of the Melango Tribe. There are two groups of Littons members of the Melango Tribe who live in Scott County and the Littons of Wise County who are not members. The Littons of Wise are no relation to the Littons of Scott.

The Bollings, who are numerous in Scott and Wise Counties, came from Newman�s Ridge. The have all the features of the Indian race.

]Old Jack Bolling, the originator of this family, is believed to have come from a low life grade of Indian. He married a melungeon by the name of Collins or Sexton but this is the first and last crossbreed in the family. His people were strong and spoke half-broken English. He was pure bred Melango and had no other blood in him. In this case word Melango pertains to Indian blood only.--Parris 23:19, 20 October 2008 (EDT)]


After the death of Mary Vacleave George Teater JR remarried Polly Riddle. Most Melungeons, or many, claim descent from this line of Riddles. 1. Moses Riddle was born about 1735 and died after 1785.

General Notes: The first record which appears to definitely be this William Riddle is the 1767 tax list, Tithables of Pittsylvania County, 1767 of persons residing in the newly formed Pittsylvania County, Virginia. He is listed as "William Ridle" and next to him on the list is "Moses Ridle (Indian)."

As far as can be determined, Moses Ridle was the father of William Riddle and was of Scotch-Irish, Indian and Portuguese (Melungeon) ancestry. "Indian" - Pittsylvania County, VA Tax List - 1767; "malato" - Orange County, NC Tax List - 1755.

The term "mulatto" as it was used in the 1700's in this area of the Southern States referred to persons of skin color darker than European white, and evidence suggests included persons of American Indian, Portuguese, Mediterranean, and Moorish ancestry - anyone who looked "darker" to the individual census or tax list taker. Persons of African black ancestry were generally listed as "negro" on these same tax lists (see Orange County Tax List - 1755). Melungeon people were often labeled "mulatto" or "free persons of color," but also often were called "white."

In the Riddle family of Utah there is a tradition that the family was of "Portugee" ancestry, which is a common tradition among people of Melungeon ancestry. See also Jack H. Goins, "Melungeon Families - Sizemore, Minor, Goins, Fisher and Riddle," Families of Hawkins County, Tennessee (1786-1994), (Rogersville, Tn. Hawkins County Genealogical and Historical Society, 1994), pp. 537-540.

The spellings "Riddle," "Ridley," "Ridel," "Ridle," and "Riddell" can all be found in various documents in connection with both William Riddle and Moses Riddle. For conciseness I will use the spelling "Riddle," indicating when a document spelled the name otherwise, but it must be recognized that spelling of surnames in the 18th century was very fluid.

Moses married Mary GIBSON, daughter of Thomas GIBSON and Mary. Mary was born about 1720 and died after 1740.

The child from this marriage was:

+ 2 M i. William Thomas Riddle was born in 1740 in Flatt River, N.C and died in 1781 in Wilkes County, NC at age 41.

[This line is too sophisticated and also argumental to document all the children of this line. Theory is Moses Riddle of Garrard Kentucky was half hung and did not die but joined the Patriot cause.--Parris 23:36, 20 October 2008 (EDT)]

As far as can be determined, Moses Ridle was the father of William Riddle and was of Scotch-Irish, Indian and Portuguese (Melungeon) ancestry.7

By tracking events in the life of William Riddle - who he associated with, where his children lived, and the families into which his children married, a clear pattern of on-going association within these extended families has been established.

All evidence continues to point to and strengthen the conclusion that Moses Riddle and his wife Mary were the parents of William Riddle.8

The next mention of William Riddle is found in the court records of Montgomery County, Virginia. He was involved in court cases concerning land in 1773, 1774, 1776 and 1779,9 and appears in 1773 on a Montgomery County, Virginia tax list in the area of Elk Creek along the New River.10

In 1774 William Riddle (Riddell) was a member of Capt. William Herbert's militia company, and apparently fought in Lord Dunmore's War at Point Pleasant on the Ohio together with Neal Roberts, William Roberts, James Wallen, Joseph Wallen, Thomas Wallen, James Wallin, William Ingram, John Cox, George Sizemore, Micajer Bunch, Doswell Rogers, Nathaniel Wilshire, Clement Lee, George Keith, David Cox, Elisha Collins, Lewis Collins, John Collins, John Collins Jr., John Cox, David Cox, Daniel Blevins, James Blevins and William Blevins.11 006 TEETER George RIDDLE Polly 30 Dec 1821 married Boone Mo Marraige Book 2ND WIFE WAS POLLY RIDDLE 1ST WIFE WAS MARY VANCLEAVE 214 12 Riddle Moses . 1 . . 1 1 1 . . 1 . . 226 12 Teter Geo., jr. 3 2 . . 1 2 2 . 1 . . . 226 13 Teter Geo., sr. . . . 1 1 . 2 1 . 1 . 4 FROM THE 1810 GARRARD CENSUS.--Parris 23:59, 20 October 2008 (EDT)

The LumbeeTribe Regional DNA Project is open to anyone who believes they are descendants of a LUMBEE Native American.

The LUMBEE TRIBE was initially known as the Cheraws and they were originally from the Danville, Virginia area prior to 1703. In 1703 they left Danville and settled in what became known as the Cheraws District of South Carolina (present day Chesterfield Co., SC).

The LUMBEE TRIBE Regional DNA Project is open to anyone who believes they are (or could be) descendants of a Lumbee Native American. This project is both a Y-Chromosome (direct paternal line) and a mitochondrial DNA (direct maternal line) study.

The primary objective of this project is to establish the genetic profile(s) for the LUMBEE Native American Tribe. In addition, the results of this project will assist family historians trace their ancestry and identify genetic cousins among the Tribe members.

The U.S. census identifies the surnames listed below as prominent Lumbee family names.

The Mixt Crew considred the 1st document of the Croatans Lumbees Malengeans on Drowning Creek border of Bladen Co NC

1754 With the French-Indian War looming, Governor Dobbs requested reports from the militia commanders of North Carolina�s counties. The Bladen militia submitted the following: �Col. Rutherford�s Regimt. of Foot in Bladen County 441, a Troop of horse 36... Drowning Creek on the Head of Little Peedee, 50 families, a mixt Crew, a lawless People, filleth the Lands without patent or paying quit rents. Shot a surveyor for coming to view vacant lands being inclosed in great swamps. Quakers to attend musters or pay as in the Northern Counties. Fines not high enough to oblige the militia to attend musters. No arms stores or Indians in the county.� [Colonial Records of North Carolina, Vol. V, p161 and a slightly different version in State Records of North Carolina, Vol. XXII, p314]--Parris 04:13, 21 October 2008 (EDT)

Hamilton McMillan, witness for the defendants:

"I am a resident of Robeson County; I am now 78 years of age. I represented Robeson County in the state legislature in 1885 and 1887. I am familiar with the Act of 1885 designating certain indians of Robeson as Croatan Indians; I introduced the bill myself. I was acquainted with the Indians of Robeson County at the time the Act of 1885 was passsed designating them as croatan indians. I had been investigating their history for several years before that. I have them the designation of croatan indians in the Act. I wanted to give them some designation. There was a tribe known as croatan tribe on croatan island, it was an honorable name and it was a complete designation...The indians designated as croatan indians were living in Robeson County...none of them lived in sumter sc as far as i know. I had the Act of 1887 passed to establish a normal school for the croatan indians of Robeson County...

"Question by the court to McMillan: Do these people here call themselves croatans? Answer: No sir, they call themselves malungeans. Question: Were they never called croatans until this Act was introduced in here? Answer: No sir. NOTE. Senator Mcmillan created the name Croatan Tribe for the people originally known as the Mixt crew. He testified that that before he created the name Croatan these people called themselves Malungeans. At present they are recognized as the Lumbee tribe.--Parris 04:45, 21 October 2008 (EDT)

The Carolinas appear to have known about "Melungeons" among them inthe 1800s also. Since many of the "Melungeons" of Tennessee immigrated from the Carolinas, this is indeed significant. The immigrations were going from east to west. In fact, unlike those Melungeons of "later" Va-Ky-Tn, the Melungeons of Carolina appear to have "called themselves" Melungeons quite early, at a time when Tennessee Melungeons were denying the name Melungeons. This is also very interesting since it suggests that the Tennessee Melungeons who denied the name were fleeing from the already recognized definition of Melungeons in the Carolinas before 1790!

Suggested reading: the book "Lumbee, Indian Histories; Race, Ethnicity, and Indian Identity in the Southern United States" by Gerald M. Sider, Cambridge University Press. The author has very esteemed credentials and you may come to the understanding that the so-called "Indians" known as Croatans and Lumbees, are in fact, early Melungeons.

Sider presents evidence that Lumbees, Smilings, Croatans of the Carolinas first called themselves "malungeans" before claiming to be Indians.. NOTES FROM LUMBEE RESRACHERS--Parris 04:53, 21 October 2008 (EDT)

As I said most of these Ged Com files usually have many mistakes. Item 6 Is common mistake. Useing the name the name John George a mythical character who never existed in regards to this family of the George Teater family of Madsion Kentucky. This what is called pass the buck genealogy. Note another big mistake useing the spelling Dieter, Here again there was no such spelling ever used by George Teater its a common fairy tale type myth. Other than that point the rest looks ok.--Parris 05:41, 21 October 2008 (EDT)

George Teater IN Augusta County 1774= [24 September 2008]

Lord Dunmore's Little War of 1774 By Warren Skidmore, Donna Kaminsky This manuscrpt is online . It shows the timEline of George Teater during the period of Lord Dunmores War. His rank of Sgt his men under himself and lt Edmonston. and Thompsons Co it shows his his in laws John Totten Howard Heavin George Parris Robert Parris Charles Gonzalva. Shows the other Teters for instance John Teeter a Swiss his inlaw John Funkhouser both Pvts their Co. It shows the German Teters of Augusta Teter Henkles, Paul and George Teter as non military persons. This could be added in on the page for the Timeline of 1774 which is presently blank.--Parris 16:57, 16 September 2008 (EDT)

A useful find, though perhaps for different reasons. P. 94-95 of Source:Skidmore, 2002 provides a summary of persons listed in a ledger recording debts incurred by the county for items purchased from residents of Augusta County apparently to support the war. A "George Teater" is listed. There is one item in this work that shows a "George Teater" as being a resident in Augusta County in 1774. In 1774 George is known to have been living in Southwest Virginia, in what was then (as of 1772) Fincastle County. If the Augusta County record is for the same person, then an explanation of why he would be recorded as a citizen of Augusta County would be needed. It seems more likely that this is a different person by the same name.
This same reasoning might apply to other records for "George Teater" earlier than his appearance on Crab Creek. I believe a reasonable argument can be made that George Teater of Crab Creek is the same person who moved to SW VA. Other records for George Teater included in the timeline for dates earlier than his appearance on Crab Creek are more questionable. I can't refute them being for the same person, as I can for this record, but its possible that they are not records for the George Teater that appeared in SW VA in 1772. They, might, for example, be for the same person as involved in the item you point to, which shows him a George Teater as a resident of Augusta County---ie, a different person than for whom this article is written.
This is actually a fairly significant finding. You have provided a huge amount of material for George Teater" for which I'm quite greatful, but its going to take substantial time to sift through. Since the focus of the article is George Teater of SW VA, knowing that there are other George Teaters who can be confused with him, is important, and justifies some caution in dealing with the material you have developed. One of the most difficult problems in genealogy, I find, is sorting out records for different persons by the same name. Its easy to assume that if the name is the same, the same person is involved. This is , unfortunately, not necessarily true, as this example seems to show. Q 10:06, 20 September 2008 (EDT)

Timeline [19 October 2008]

Timeline for George Teater (1)

Teters of Pendelton County

A excerpt from the Teter brothers of Pendelton county. The George Teter or George Teters who used the facilites of Augusta Co after 1779 had nothing to do with the George Teater of Washington Co and Kentucky. These notes are applied to the German Teters commonly refered to as the Teter Henkles, George Teters of Rockingham Pendelton Co. These Teters were Luterans non slavers had their Fort at one point Fort Henkle.  Paul Teter was a Capt in charge of the local German militia named Paul Teter or signed his name as Paulus Detter. Paul Teter had a son George Teter and his brother  George Teter had a son George Teter. Any Teter as George Teter in Augusta refers to this clan of German Teters especially after the date 1779 . This is in ragrds to the George Teater named  as Scotch Irish by his sons families documents and referances made by Governor Campbell. Therefore any George Teter documented in Augusta after 1779 is referring these German Teters  The Teter Henkles not the Scotch Irish George Teater of Washington Co and Kentucky Below gives a account of the other George Teter the non slaving Lutheran German George Teter or Teter Henkle George Teter

George Teter II, son of Hans Jorg Dieter

George Teter II Biography by Professor Joseph M. Kellogg George Teter II [also known as George Teter Sr.] was born in April 1730 in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, where his family was living at the time. He lived of course for some time in Rowan County North Carolina, and then removed from there to the North Fork valley in Augusta County Virginia [Germany Valley] about 1760, together with his brothers Paul and Philip and the Justus Henkel family.

In 1764 George Teter had a claim entered at the Augusta County court for building a fort, showing his activity during the recent French and Indian war. It was on Wed., March 25, 1767 that various claims from Augusta County were presented to the Virginia assembly, among them "George Teter for work in building a Fort in 1764". (Journal of Virginia House of Burgesses, Volume. 3, page 96). This very evidently was the Henkel fort in Germany Valley, (now Pendleton County), known to have been built about that time. The story of this fort has been well presented in The Henckel Family Records. An interesting marker was erected to mark the site of the fort and dedicated with appropriate ceremonies.

George Teter became a large landholder in the region which is now Pendleton County. On October 26, 1767, George Teter had surveyed 120 acres said to be in the North Fork bottom, above the Deep Spring. Patent for it was granted him on March 1, 1773. This tract became his homestead property [now called Teterton] which he later willed to his son, George Teter III and which was sold by the latter in 1840 to Isaac Phares before George III's, removal to Indiana.

In the long list of those from Rockingham county who made claims for furnishing supplies (such as "diets," beef, bacon, oats, coarse linen, horse hire and pasturage etc.) to the army in the Revolutionary war, George Teter's name appears several times: At a court on September 23, 1782, his claim dated Nov. 2, 1781 was allowed. This was for "1 Bullock - 290 lbs @ 2d per lb." At another Court on September 28, 1782, his claim dated May 17, 1782, for 86 lbs. "nt. Post" (or Pork?) at �1-5-0 per lb. wt." was also allowed. Similarly on September 23, 1783, his claim dated June 4, 1782, for pasturing 15 horses for 1 night at 4 d. each.

In the lists of voters at election polls in Pendleton County (preserved in the clerk's files) it appears that George Teter voted for Presidential elector on the 1st Wed. of January 1789, for member of U.S. House of Rep. on February 2, 1789, for Senator in 1792, for Assemblyman in 1792, for Senator again in 1792, for Assembly in 1793, 1794, 1795, 1796. Sometimes his home on the North Fork was the polling place for that region.

Because of his prominence in the community and his wide knowledge of all the frontier country it is probable that George Teter took an important part in the Revolutionary War, although no actual record of military service (other than furnishing supplies as mentioned above) has been found. He was probably enrolled in his brother Captain Paul Teter's company of the county militia.

On July 6, 1789, George Teter was appointed overseer of the road in place of Abraham Henckel. In the book of "Estrays" for Pendleton County it is noted that on December 25, 1792, "George Teter Senior. brought before me a certain stray red steer supposed a 2 yr. old," etc. appraised at �1-16-0. Sworn before Moses Henkle. (A stray Christmas present!)

George Teter died in 1798, sometime during the summer months. He had appeared on the Personal Tax list for that year. On September 4, 1798, however, his will was proven in court. The will is evidently not written in George Teter's handwriting. He signs it in German script, as shown by copy of signature on the Pendleton County record book. At court, the settlement of the estate of George Teter was presented by Paul Teter, his brother and Executor and was admitted to probate on May 17, 1799.

George Teter Sr. married Mary Anna Margaret Henkel, daughter of Justus Henkel and Maria Magdelena Eschman, in 1763 in Pendleton County. George and Mary would have 9 children. His wife, Mary Margaret would move to the village of Teter after the death of her husband George in 1798. She would live with her son, Jacob and would die there in 1801 at the age of 60. His brother, Philip, would survive him, but not his brother Paul, who died in 1784.--Parris 10:23, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

Sources [21 October 2008]

Teater, Howard Curry, 1974. The Kentucky Teater Family. Source:Teater, 1974

A note from the Jessemine Historical Society on Kentucky rivers Ferry Operaters goes to match the documents of Timothy Logan,

27.     Teaters Ferry (J-G) (RM 144.6)

This ferry was located at the mouth of Lick Branch on land originally surveyed for Green Clay, who acquired a number of sites along the Kentucky River. The Teaters, of early Garrard County, were an independent and daring sort and proved this by being among the first families to leave the safety of Downing Station to settle on their own farm.--Parris 11:12, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

Fort Henkel Roster

Transferred to: Militia Roster, Fort Henkel, Riverton, Pendleton, WV (Alphabetical List) Temporary pending incorporation into the Digital Library

This a translated copy of the men at Fort Henkle in the German Valley. It shows that the German George Teter and his clan were in the German Valley (near Riverton, Pendleton County, WV), in 1775. At this same time Scotch Irish George Teater was living on Bakers Creek on the North Fork of the Holston--Parris 11:43, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

[Good find!] Technically, the roster only shows that a George Teter was in "German Valley"; He may have been a single man in the militia, and the militia might not even be composed of men from this area. In this case, he and his family probably WERE in the area, but that's not clear from this item alone. In anycase, I think your point that this has to be a different George Teter (ie, not George Teater of Crab and Bakers Creek), is well taken.]

Will of William Vancleace

I will add in the Will of William Vancleace. This will be a 1st of  series with more followup evidence to establish if George Teater took his his family with him 1779 to Kentucky which appears he did not. Some revelant documents will help establish this. The next part is to establish the family connnection of the Scotch - Irish Teeders morphed to Teater back in the 1750s Rowan Co NC. It is base between the Daniel Boone family and the Teaters with the the Van Cleaves in the middle. We have already established that  3 George Teeder Jacob Teeder Joseph Teeder where establised as Teder Tedeer Tettor various variants in Surry Va Edgcombe NC prior to thier move to Rowan co with the Mccullahs Mccullocks ect. Both the people on Squire Boone and the Van Vleaves can be established same timel same place in Rowan Co. . We have established that Capt Sam Teater and Daniel Boone as stated by Daniel Boone were old friends as mentioned by Daniel Boone in his own hand regarding the Seige of Boonesborough. The only way by Boones dates and movements and Sam Teaters dates and movements was for Samuel Teater to have grown up in Rowan Co Nc. From 1768 until the Seige of Boonesbourgh Samuel Teater and Boone where vast distances from each other.. The George Teater listed here was the soon in law of William Vancleave Daniel Boones brother Squire Boone was the brother inlaw of William Vancleave. Followup documents will help to make sense of it.
I'll start moving this and similar information into the Digital Archive and place a link to it here. I'm looking forward to your full assessment of this issue. Personally, I have not found the evidence that his family remained in VA for awhile, conclusive one way or the other. However, the simplest explanation would be that they did not, and usually, simplest is most likely to be correct. So I agree with the doubts you express.Q 16:44, 7 October 2008 (EDT)

Ephemeral Notes [19 October 2008]

The following Notes have been temporarily captured pending examination. They should be deleted after use.

from: Corrected Pedigrees by Jeff Carr, on Allegheny Regional Family History Society WebSite 26 June 2008

Teter. This one may be old news. It was once widely circulated that George Dieter/Teter, the progenitor of the family in Pendleton, had once lived in Frederick Co., VA on Opequon Creek. The well-known Rev. John Casper Stoever baptized several children of a George Teter at that place in the 1730's; these were published in Early Lutheran Baptisms and Marriages in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Those baptisms belong to another contemporary George Teter that did live at that place. His descendants migrated westward along the Valley of Virginia, and were living in the New River area by the Revolutionary War. The George Teter that was the ancestor of the local family has been documented as having lived in old Orange Co., VA, now Madison County, during the 1730's and 1740's. He died there in 1744. Again, this has been correctly reported in other publications such as the Henckel Bulletin and the Teter Descendants of Hans Jorg and Maria Dieter, by Eva (Teter) Winfield (1992). However, some readers of this journal may not have had access to those works.

In the timeline of George Teater Madsison tax 1792 until death 1815. Capt Benjamin Totten is listed in Jackson Tenn 1802. Another there was Jonas Griffith noted father of Samuel Griffith. Samuel Griffith married Sarah Teater 1791 Madison Kentucky. Sarah being the daughter of George Teater and Sarah Pearis 1st wife of George Teater. Samuel Griffith also served as Bondsman for his father inlaws marraige to Esther Griffith 1796. John W Griffith also signed off on the will of George Teater 1815 Garrard KY. This demonstrates George Teater s 2nd wife was Esther a female from either Jonas Griffith or his brother John Griffith. Esther Griffith had Lewis Craig Nancy and Susy Teater from George Teater Sr. She died sometime after 1802. this is proved as fact due to George Teater Sr married a 3rd wife also named as Ester the widow of Benjamin Totten Sr. Internet incorrect inforamtion has confused the matter alledging Benjamin Totten Sr was murdered in Lynchburg 1794. Benjamin Totten was alive and well in 1802 Jackson Tenn. Some may say that Capt Totten was his son Benjamin Totten Jr, here again War of 1812 shows this to be not the case . Benjamin Totten Jr was private on 2 documents therfore not Capt Totten 1802 Jackson Tenn. The 1813 Totten family Power Attorney proves George Teater Sr married Ester Totten widow of Benjamin totten sr. this event could not of happened until after 1812 becuse Benjamin Totten was still alive and well in Jackson Tenn. Conclusion George Teater married his 3rd wife also named Ester after 1802. Below is investigation by Donald Totten a totten family genealogist. Author of paper on Benjamin Totten Sr copy of an associated legislative petition from Overton County Citizens to The General Assembly of the State of Tennessee . The petition is reproduced on pages 57 – 60 in the booklet “Overton County Tennessee Genealogical Records” compiled by Edythe Rucker Whitley. The petition is dated Oct, 27th, 1813 and states that the Inhabitants of Overton County are “disposed to have a part in the present war with Britanie Majesty’s savage allies, viz. The Creek Nation of Indians” and they are requesting that the Assembly “pass a law authorizing Col. Stephen Copeland of said County to raise by Voluntary Inlisment a force of 500 mounted men out of the 3d Judicial Circuit in Said State to march against the said Nation of Indians or other Tribes of the savage foe, and fight them in their wodn savage way, and act as Rangers.” Three pages of the names of the Petitioners followed. B. Totten was the first name listed, however no title or rank was given. Obviously, the paper that I could not locate relates to actions taken after legislative approval. I will continue looking for the paper.

I will mention that I have a copy of an earlier enlistment or company muster roll verification document applying to Benjamin Totten Jr. It is dated Dec. 7, 1812 and it appears that he is listed as [a Pvt.] under the name Benj. Totten in Capt. John Kennedy’s Company of Infantry, 1 Reg’t Tennessee Volunteers during the War of 1812.

Therefore Benjamin Totten was a [private of rank ]and could not of been Captian Benjamin Totten of 1802 Jackson Tenn. It was his father still maried to his wife Ester who remarried George Teater Sr after his 2nd wife Esther Griffith died. George Teater Sr married two Esthers. One a Griffith 2nd a widow of Benjamin Totten Sr, who was mother of Parris Teaters wife Rebecca Totten. NOTED Parris Teater and wife Rebecca died within one hour apart.--Parris 15:50, 11 August 2008 (EDT)

To show moore evidence of George Teater being from North Carolina and clan of Samuel Teder George Teeder Jacob Teeder Scotch English Teters, present the following records.

1850 Madison County Census shows Thomas Reynolds 83, born North Carolina .

Explanation Thomas Reynolds came to Madison Kentucky before 1789 with a wife named Elizabeth . Not any extra names which have appeared on the internet soley Elizabeth. Thomas Reynolds bought 100 acres from George Teater 1789 Madison Kentucky. Again information on the internet alledges Thomas Reynolds came from Lincoln North Carolina, this cannot be true why?. The Thomas Reynolds of Lincon NC is listed on the Census 1790 for Lincon NC. The Thomas Reynolds who came from NC to Madison is consistantly recorded and taxed in Madison Kentucky. therefore cannot be the Thomas Reynolds of Lincoln Co NC.

Who was Thomas Reynolds and how was he connected to George Teater?.

North Carolina Genweb Tax List of Montgomery Co NC. lists on the year 1780 Thomas Renolds. He is no longer mentioned there, on later Census or Tax Lists. 1790 Montgomery Co NC Census. Benjemin Tedder 1 - i -3. --5 Tithables. 1810 Montgomery Co Census. Geo Teter. 1- 1 -1-- 3 Tithables.

Explanation. Thomas Reynolds and Bejemin Tedder both lived in Montgomery Co NC same decade. Bejamin Tedder names one son George Teter found under Benjamin census records a generation younger than Benjemin Tedder whos son shows as George Teter.

possible- 50 % ODDS. BENJAMIN TEDDER recommeded a introduction of Thomas Reyonlds to George Teater. Thomas Reynolds wife Elizabeth from NC, possible neice sister cousin of George Teater., Appears the Kentucky connection of Thomas Reynolds Montgomey Co was George Teater thru his wife Elizabeth or possible by Benjamin Tedder father of George Teter.--Parris 20:38, 13 August 2008 (EDT)

FROM ONE OF THE DOZENS OF FAMILY FILES OF DANIEL BOONE. to establish that as listed in Rowan County marriegs Squire Boone listed in the will of William Vancleave with George Teater Jr married William Van Cleaves sisters.

JR. SQUIRE3 BOONE (SARAH2 MORGAN, EDWARD1) was born October 05, 1744 in Berks Co., PA, and died August 08, 1815 in Buck Creek, near Corydon, IN. He married JANE VAN CLEVE August 08, 1765 in Rowan Co., NC, daughter of AARON VAN CLEAVE and RACHEL SCHENCK. She was born October 16, 1749 in Middletown or New Brunswick, NJ, and died March 10, 1829 in Otter Creek, KY.. THE 1787 MADISON TAX LIST 1789 TAX LIST SHOWS ABIGAIL VAN CLEAVE SQUIRE BOONE AND GEORGE TEATER SR.




224. William VAN_CLEAVE was born about 1743 in New Brunswick, , New Jersey. He died about 1787 in , Mercer, Kentucky. have not been able to determine if he served during the Revolutionary War; he may be the Wm.Vancleave listed as being at Grant's Station 23 April 1780 some researchers seem to think he did receive land for military service. He was married to Abigail FROST about 1762 in , , North Carolina.

225. Abigail FROST was born in 1744 in Morristown, , New Jersey. She died after 1840 in , Calloway, Kentucky. source of information: "The Frosts and Related Families of Bedford County Tennessee" by Wright W. Frost-published 1962. Other children were a brother, Ebenezer Frost baptised Jan 1747 and a sister Elizabeth baptised Jan 1749. The brother Ebenezer married into the Van Cleave family.

from "Isaac and Elizabeth Branscum. Their Ancestors and their Children" written by one of Abigail's fourth great grandsons, Fred Tubbs of Delmar NY 1990.

Abigail married William Van Cleave at least by early 1765 and probably about 1762-3. She bore him 7 children while they resided in Rowan Co. NC. To a large extent she reared the children during 1777-80 without the benefit of a resident husband. Then she and the children went with William and other relatives from rustic but relatively safe North Carolina to the privations and dangers of the Kentucky frontier. Her eldest child was killed by the Indians probably within the first year of their arrival. She bore her eighth child after arriving in KY. Her husband died approximately seven years later. Abigail had the tasks of settling her husband's estate, rearing her minor children, making a home out of the land her husband left her, and then fighting off the land sharks who tried to wrest it from her. (That involved 25 years in the courts). She typifies the indomitable spirit of the pioneer women.

From a letter written by Fred Tubbs in March 1990: "What a woman that Abigail must have been! I think I would rather have her for an ancestor than any number of dukes and counts. Just consider this scene: In September 1781, a month before William was born, she was part of the group moving from Boone's Station at the Painted Stone to Lynn's Station near the Falls of Ohio. They were attacked by Indians and she had to flee. Her eldest daughter was killed. And she had to worry about six other children as well. Ebenezer couldn't have been more than six years old. Can you imagine what she must have gone through! Whenever I feel any urge to tell any war stories about the Korean War, I"ll just stop and remember my g-g-g-g-grandmother." Children were:

She died in 1781 in , , Kentucky. after leaving church, while she was mounting her fiance's horse, an Indian grabbed her and split her head open, but the rest reached home safely (JWaVC) page 129 in Ledley's "The Van Cleef Family"

Threfore we can Establish by the 1787 Washington Co surrogate census that George Teater Jr was still in the area. The Russell Co tax lists shows his future in laws the Frosts and Vancleaves were all spread out thru Washington Co and early Russell Co , This includes his step mothers family the Griffiths Includes his sister Sarahs family again the Griffiths, Her step mother Esther Griffith and her husband samuel Griffith were the same family. Appears her step mother and sister in law Esther were Jonas or John Griffiths daighter. This is the same situation with Parris Teater his 2nd step mother was Ester Totten the mother of his wife Rebecca Totten. In any case Jonas Griffith appears back and forth taxed in Madison Ky and Russell Co.. It is noted that Jonas was Captured as a younger teenager in the letter of HH Griffith the son of Samuel Teater Griffith that Jonas was raised with the Shawnee. he is lsited with John Griffith on the Burk NC tax list before coming to Madison Kentucky. He had 2 wives TN court records in Jackson TN court cases names one as Sur name Lock. The 1st wife appears in most file as Cherokee, Samuel Griffith would of been a halfbreed. Notes on the 1830 Jackson Tn census bears some of that due to the Griffiths enumerated as Free Persons of Color. Not all but some are. it appears that both of George Teater Sr wives .1st Sarah Pearis and her Sister Rhoda Parris were the Indian daughters of George Parris. 2nd wife Esther Griffth also could be Jonas Griffith daughter since Samuel Griffith served as the bondsman for George Teater Sr and Esther Griffith in 1796 2 years after Sarah the 1st wife died. some lsitings of the cherokee bloodlines are very numerous with all the inlaw families of jonas griffith.

The letter of HH Griffith states Jonas Griffith became a Shawnee adopted on one of the early trips with Daniel Boone. It also states they came from Wales. I show Jonas Griffith was a cousin of Daniel Boone 3rd generation descent from a convict named John Griffith from Newgate Prison.

This line migrated with Daniel Boones family down to Rowan Co NC and settled at the area of Rowan Co that became Burk Co.--Parris 07:31, 9 October 2008 (EDT)

. Jonas Griffith 1787 Burk Co NC formed from Rowan Co. Jonas Griffith 1789 Madison Ky 1790s russell co va 1802 Jackson TN, with Parris Teaters father Capt Benjamin Totten..Jonas Griffith named one son Boone Jonas Boone and several others also had the middle name Boone. one Grandson named Parris Griffith. Records from Jackson TN by Rich Clark. Jonas Griffith Sr. was on the tax list for Madison County, Kentucky in 1789. From the marriage records of some of his children, it seems like a certain match. The 1800 US Census for Kentucky and Tennessee was lost, but there was a Jonas and John Griffith on the 1802 tax list for Jackson County, Tennessee. The 1810 census of Jackson County was also lost. Court records and census records indicate that Jonas Sr. had 4 sons; Jonas Jr., John, Samuel, and David, as well as several daughters (that lived in Jackson county, anyway - perhaps there were more). Some of these children were probably born in North Carolina. Some of Jonas Sr.'s grandchildren were born in Kentucky.

Here are some census extracts:

In reading the old court records, there is a mention of Samuel Cull Griffith and his cousin Samuel Teeter Griffith. If I understood them correctly, Sam Cull was the son of John Griffith. There was a William D. that seems associated with Sam Cull in land deals, but I can't find more on him. The same holds true for a George Griffith, who purchased 100 acres of land in Jackson county during 1827, but was not found in the 1830 census. I can't help but wonder though, why David Griffith named a son Sam Teeter (sp. varies) Griffith. While the children of David and Jonas Jr. are fairly well documented in the records, the children of Sam and his brother John are not. Although many people believe John died about 1814, I believe he may have joined with his sister's family (Richard and Eleanor Lock, married 13 Jan 1782 in Madison Co. KY) and moved to southern Illinois -

1820 US Census - White County, Illinois Richard Lock 110001 11101 0100 Jonas Lock 000100 00100 0100 (Oldest son of Richard) John Griffith 000001 ?0010 0100 (A young wife and either 1 or 4 daughters, or perhaps a widowed daughter?)

By the way, this area of White county was divided in 1821 and became Hamilton County. An Elizabeth Griffith was married there in 1817, and her husband purchased land there in 1818. This neighbors on Wayne County, Illinois, where I first document my ggg-grandfather, Jonas B. Griffith. It could be that John is my missing link, but then Sam can't be ruled out either. If naming traditions meant anything, my Jonas had a son named Samuel J. B., as well as Paris Thomas/Thomas Paris (sometimes used the name Perry, and named a son Francis Perry).--Parris 14:17, 9 October 2008 (EDT)

It appears Benjamin Totten and brothers sisters were Orphaned. Benjamin was apprenticed to Andrew Miller 1768 who lived in the vacinity of the Crab creek area. Chackleys Chroicles note he was the son of John Miller of Anson Co NC.. This year George Teater Sr arrived from St Johns Georgia. He purchused x amount of acres from Fred Starns Crab Creek in the area coined as the South Irish colony within the larger Scotch Irish colony of Augusta VA

Andrew Miller is noted with John Porterield and Peter Totten Tutten on the tax list 1779 in the Old 96th SC.

William Tuton totten, is listed with John Porterfield freemason muster rolls 1799 NC.. Benjamin Totten and family were not from New York. He was not the infamous Tory Benajmin Totten son of infamous Tory Jonas Totten of New York .simple fairy tale genealogy.--Parris 03:28, 10 October 2008 (EDT)
