in 1768 Benjamin Totten a teenager was apprencticed to Andrew Miller. Andrew Miller was the son of John Miller who married Thomas Ingles mother. this made Andrew Miller and Thomas Ingles step brothers,. Both John Totten and brother Benjamin Totten were listed with and under Thomas Ingles in his small Burks Garden Militia 1781. In 1813 the Totten family Power of attorney which named George Teater Sr his wife Ester the widow of Benjamin Totten Sr and George Teaters son Parris Teater his wife Rebecca Totten to grant Benjamin Totten Jr Power of attorney to recover a land in Virginia from David Doak. This David Doak is mentioned here. Capture and Rescue of the Ingles Family and Killing of Captain Thomas Maxwell By Emory L. Hamilton

From the unpublished manuscript, Indian Atrocities Along the Clinch, Powell and Holston Rivers, pages 93-98.

In Tazewell Co., VA, lies Burke's Garden, one of the most beautiful valleys in all of Southwest Virginia. The valley is a bowl 10 miles long by 5 miles wide, snuggled down between beautiful mountains on all sides, with a narrow outlet at one end. This was perhaps the earliest site of a settlement in Tazewell Co., with the Ingles brothers and son building a cabin there in 1749, (1) although they did not make a settlement at this date, only a cabin. The Ingles and Patton families claimed all of Burke's Garden, and after the death of Col. James Patton, his grandson James Thompson seems to have taken over and most of the land eventually came into possession of James Thompson and Dr. Thomas Walker. In 1760 it was known as "Ingles Craborchard." (2) Kegley, in his "Virginia Frontier," (2), says:

Thomas, John and William Ingles of Ingles Mill Creek of the North Fork Roanoke, were among the most interesting of the early settlers. Thomas and John were brothers, William and Matthew, (3) sons of Thomas. Thomas Ingles a grandson of William says, "My great grandfather, Thomas Ingles, was a merchant of Dublin, Ireland, who, upon suspicion of entertaining liberal principles and engaging in a rebellion him and his two sons were sent as convicts to Wales from whence they made their escape to the United States, my grandfather William Ingles being one of the number, they came first to Pennsylvania and from there to this country. (Letter of Thomas Ingles of Lovely Mount, Montgomery Co., 1851). They were here as early as 1746 and were well established when Dr. (Thomas) Walker visited them in 1750. Thomas and his brother John entered land on the waters of New River and Clinch and William as heir to both, came into possession of it. John was killed at Vause's Fort and his wife, Mary, was carried into captivity. When this Mary Ingles returned she married John Miller and went to Carolina. William Ingles came to the Roanoke with his father and Uncle John before 1746. William in 1750 married Mary Draper, but he continued to live on the Roanoke until after 1753, when he purchased land at Draper's Meadows from Col. Patton. He was on the waters of New River in 1754 and 1755.

A neighbor of Ingles, on the Roanoke River, James Burke sold his property there in 1753 and moved to Burkes Garden and lived there until the Indians saw fit to run him out. From Burkes Garden James Burke migrated to Cumberland Co., NC, and in 1760 he and his wife Lucretia, conveyed the remainder of the original Burke land on the Roanoke to Dr. Walker. This is the reason for calling the place Burke's Garden as James Burke seems to have been the first to actually make a settlement in the valley.

At the Draper's Meadows massacre of July 30, 1755, the wife of William Ingles, Mary Draper Ingles, and her small son Thomas, then four years old, were taken captive by the Indians. Mrs. Ingles made her escape, and the details of which has become the classic Indian story of Southwest Virginia. Her son, Thomas, was held captive until ransomed by his father in 1768. He had spent thirteen years with the Indians, had grown to young manhood, spoke their language fluently, and had adopted Indian ways altogether. It is said that upon return he was very unhappy away from his Indian friends, and had much difficulty in readopting to civilized life. He was finally sent to Albemarle Co. By his father and while there married.

William Ingles continued to live on in the area until his death in 1782, leaving at least five children (4), who were: Susannah who married Abraham Trigg; Rhoda who married Byrd Smith; Mary who married John Gills, and Thomas and John Ingles. (5)

Thomas Ingles eventually settled in Burke's Garden on the land he had inherited from his father. He was Commissary for the troops on the Point Pleasant expedition and his feelings were very strong for the Indians.

On the 5th of April, 1782, the Shawnee, under the leadership of Black Wolf made a raid upon Burkes Garden and captured the family of Thomas Ingles.

Pendleton, History of Tazewell County, (6) gives the following:

The Indians had concealed themselves until Ingles went out on his farm to work, and then surrounded his home; and made his wife, their three children and a Negro man and woman prisoner. After taking as much booty as they could carry the Indians started with their prisoners back to Ohio. The cries of the captives attracted the attention of Thomas Ingles and his Negro man while they were plowing in a field.

Seeing the number of Indians, Ingles knew he could do nothing for his family. He and the Negro man, unhitched the horses from the plow and started to the nearest settlement for assistance. Knowing the Indians would make their way back to the head of the Clinch, Ingles crossed the mountains to the nearest settlement on the North Fork of the Holston.. It happened to be Muster Day for the Washington Co. militia and the settlers on the North Fork of the Holston River had assembled, and were being drilled by Captain Thomas Maxwell, who had formerly lived at the head of Bluestone, in Tazewell Co. Maxwell with a party of fifteen or twenty volunteers, went with Ingle's to Burke's Garden to pursue the Indians. (7)

Joseph Hicks (Hix) (8), a single man and his Negro slave were the only other people who lived in Burke's Garden besides the Thomas Ingles family. The day the Indians attacked the Ingles family Hicks and his Negro man were on their way to the home of Ingles and saw the Indians with their captives. He and the Negro man immediately started across Brushy Mountain for help in Bland County. There they secured six or seven men and arrived back in Burke's Garden about the same time Maxwell and his party arrived. The two parties united under Maxwell and went in pursuit of the Indians.

On the fifth day after the capture the advance scouts discovered the Indians, who were camped for the night in a gap of Tug Mountain. It was agreed that Maxwell should take half of the men, and during the night, get in front of the Indians, and Thomas Ingles should remain with the other half in the rear of the Indians, and at daybreak a simultaneous attack should take place. The night was very dark and the ground rough and brushy. Consequently the party with Maxwell lost their way and did not reach the front by daylight.

Maxwell having failed to get to his appointed place on time, and the Indians beginning to rouse from their slumbers, Ingles determined to make an attack with his men. Dr. Thomas Hale, who was a great-grandson of William and Mary Ingles and who collected his information from the records of the Ingles family thus relates what transpired after the attack was made: 'So soon as a shot was fired, some of the Indians began to tomahawk the prisoners, while others fought and fled. Thomas Ingles rushed in and seized his wife just as she received a terrible blow on the head with a tomahawk. She fell covering the infant of a few months old, which she held in her arms. The Indians had no time to devote to it. They tomahawked his little five year old daughter, named Mary, and his three year old son, named William. His Negro servants, a man and woman, captured with his family, escaped without injury.

Dr. Thomas Hale, in his "Trans Alleghany Pioneers," says that "shortly after this occurrence that Thomas Ingles, his wife, and infant daughter, moved to Tennessee and settled in succession on the Watauga River at Mossy Creek, and at Fort Knox, now Knoxville. There his daughter, Rhoda, who escaped death, grew up and married Patrick Campbell. Subsequent to the marriage of his daughter, Thomas Ingles moved to Mississippi, where he lived until he died.

After tomahawking the Ingles children in making their escape the Indians ran close to Captain Maxwell and his party, and, firing on them, killed Captain Maxwell, (9) who was conspicious from wearing a white hunting shirt.

The whites remained on the ground until late in the evening burying Captain Maxwell, who was killed outright, and Thomas Ingle's little son, who died from his wounds during the day. Mrs. Ingles and the little girl were still alive, although badly wounded. Four days after the party arrived at William Wynn's Fort at Locust Hill.

On April 26, 1782, Col. William Preston, wrote Governor Harrison (10), a letter wherein he states: Enclosing a letter to himself from Col. Walter Crockett, dated April 15, 1782, giving account of the killing of Captain Moffet's sons, and the whole family of Captain Ingles in Burke's Garden, - also of his having ordered Col. Cloyd to call out the militia to assemble at "David Doack's Mill", to protect the settlements, as the people talk of "breaking up" unless help is afforded them. He calls also for provisions as they cannot be supplied on Clinch. Col. Preston adds, "I wrote to your Excellency the 10th instant informing you of the damages the savages had done in Montgomery. I last night received the enclosed letter from Colonel Crockett. It appears that Captain ingles family were not burned in the house, as he imagined, but were taken prisoners. He raised a party of men and pursued the enemy; after some days march he overtook them and recovered his wife and one child, both tomahawked, but perhaps not mortally, and his slaves. One of his children they murdered, killed an officer of the party, and made their escape. The enemy attacked some other families, but were repulsed though, I believe without loss. They killed a man on Bluestone, and I am told a woman at Culbertson's Bottom on New River. Their signs have been seen in various parts of the country, which has given the greatest alarm to the inhabitants; and what is extraordinary that five houses they attacked, that four belonged to officers, and some of them a considerable distance within the frontier settlements, which induces me to believe they are conducted by Tories. I am at a loss what measures to fall upon for the defense of the distressed inhabitants.

Samuel ROY Andrew RAY {?} "Zacharis RAY". ZACHARIA RAY MARRIED MARY BENGE.--Parris 03:34, 12 October 2008 (EDT)

Genealogy of the Lewis Family in America: From the Middle of the Seventeenth Century Down to the Present Time By William Terrell Lewis Published by Pub. by the Courier-journal job printing co., 1893 Original from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. In William Terrell Lewis own hand he wrote Zacharia Ray married Mary Benge the daughter of Thomas Benge. Mary benge was a 1st cousin of War Cheif Robert Benge one of the most horrific Cherokee chiefs in American History. Mary Benge was a sister of Davis Benge. David Benge was known as King David at the Redbird community amoungst the Quasi Melungeon and Quasi Indian people who lived there Clay County KY--Parris 03:47, 12 October 2008 (EDT)

a excerpt produced by Garrard co historian and Ray family Genalogist culled from the Earliest Ray. William Lewis put the bill of sale with his other important papers. After Cornwallis met with another defeat at Cowpens on 16 Jan 1781, he began his advancing “retreat” to the north, at first following the Yadkin valley. William T. Lewis became concerned because his plantation lay in the path of the advancing British. This and a break in/robbery of his home caused William to fear for the safety of his personal papers. So, he bundled them up and gave them to Zachariah Ray to take to his sister, Susannah Lewis and her husband Thomas Benge, or to his father who may have lived with the Benges. They had residence in Wilks County, which was the next county to the west. Thomas and Susannah Benge lived at the foot of Brushy Mountain. The Yadkin River framed the mountain on the north and west, where the river had its source in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Thomas Benge allowed Zachariah to store William’s papers in the barn; but the barn burned down, destroying the papers. Had they been left on the Lewis plantation, they would have been safe, as the British veered off to the east, where they were sort of victorious at the battle of Guilford Courthouse, but lost so many men their overall situation only worsened.

However, Zachariah’s trip to the Benge’s resulted in him getting to know Thomas’ daughter Mary Benge. No record of their marriage apparently exists, but they must have been wed during 1781 or very early 1782 as their first born, Samuel, arrived 9 Oct 1782. Note: Samuel may have been named for Zachariah’s probable father.

Zachariah and his bride retuned to Surry County, but it is unclear if he returned to his old job as overseer of the Lewis Plantation. Court records show he witnessed a land bill of sale on 24 Oct 1783. He shows up on the 1784 Tax List in Capt. Lewis’ District. It is uncertain which Lewis this is. No acreage is recorded for him and the next entry is that of Winniford Ridge, widow of William Ridge (who was killed fighting for the Tories at Guilford Courthouse). Based on other entries on the page, my guess is that he was living on the south side of the Yadkin, working for Winniford. On 7 Sep 1786, John Combs (neighbor) stole Zachariah’s prize Hog, leaving him with the nickname “hogless Zachariah.” It should be noted that in 1850 that part of Surry County south of the Yadkin was separated into the new Yadkin County.

Maybe the theft of his hog motivated him to become a Justice of the Peace in 1787.

The birthdates of most of Zachariah’s children are not known, but the best guesstimate is that Zachariah and Mary’s second known child was William, b. ca. 1787. This leaves plenty of time for one or two more children. Catherine would follow in ca. 1789.

Zachariah must have moved before 1789 because he is shown as a member of the Brier Creek Baptist Church in that year. The Church was located near the Wilks/Surry County line.

The 1790 census lists a Zachariah Wray, 2 males under 16 (Samuel, William), 4 males over 16 (Zach. plus 3 unknown adult males), 5 females (Mary Benge, Catherine Ray and possibly wives of the 3 adult males or daughters born between 1783 and 1786.)

The 1790 term of the Rowan County Court records show that Zachariah was paid six dollars for appearing as a witness before the court. He had traveled sixty miles to get there.

According to census reports, Zachariah and Mary’s next child, Daniel, was born in Virginia in mid summer (probably Aug) of 1790. This birth must have been after the 1790 census was taken. Could Zachariah have gone to Albemarle to attend to the affairs of his father Samuel, who had died 9 Oct 1788?

In the early 1790’s many residents of Surry/Stokes/Wilks counties of North Carolina were ready to move west. These counties are very hilly, with limited land suitable for farming. Since most were tobacco farmers, the land quickly wore out. Some moved to Georgia, some to Tennessee, some to Kentucky. Those moving to Kentucky usually did so in fairly large groups. When Daniel Boone was leading them in the 1770’s and 1780’s, they would gather in the upper Yadkin Valley of Wilks County; then they would travel through Deep Gap in the Blue Ridge to the New River Valley of what is now Ashe County. From there they would cross into the Watauga River Valley in Tennessee before heading north into Virginia to pass through the Cumberland Gap into Kentucky. In the 1790’s the migrating families would apparently go through either the Deep Gap or Cooks Gap and settle in the New River Valley for a season or two, before moving to Kentucky. Zachariah may have even spent his season in the Watauga Valley as his next child, Michael, was, according to the 1850 census, born in Tennessee in 1792. Michael’s tombstone gives the date as 14 Feb 1792. The 1860 and 1870 census lists his birth year as 1793 in North Carolina. My inclination is to accept the 1850 census as being more accurate.

It has not been absolutely determined when Zachariah moved to Kentucky, but the best guess is 1793. He may have started in 1791 with his brother Daniel. (Both theories of Zachariah’s parentage state he had a brother named Daniel. The children of Samuel Ray list Zachariah as the oldest son and Daniel second. A Daniel Ray was in Madison County Kentucky by Dec 1792.) Zachariah may have pulled up in the Watauga valley in 1791 to await the birth of Michael (Feb 1792). It is known that in 1793 a group of about sixty families from the upper Yadkin valley made the journey. Since at least one of these families appears on the 1793 Wilks County Tax roll, the move must have occurred late in the year. Typically they would start after the fall harvest and be over the mountains before hard winter set in. This would have probably put them in Kentucky in Nov/Dec 1793. Zachariah could have joined them.

The aforementioned group of families stopped first at Boone’s Station on the north bank of the Kentucky River. There they began their search for a suitable piece of land. Most of the best land had already been taken by earlier settlers, so the newcomers had to settle for leftovers. Some would cross the Kentucky River and settle in either Madison County or continue southwest to Lincoln County. Zachariah probably found a temporary piece of land on Drakes Creek, then in Lincoln County. It was probably here where Zachariah’s next two children, David and Elizabeth were born. Some time before 1796, the Rays must have moved to the north end of the Sugar Creek, since he is recorded as being a charter member of the Antioch Church of Buckeye, as was the local community called. There their son Jefferson was probably born ca 1797.

In 1797 Garrard County was formed from pieces of Lincoln and Madison Counties. Zachariah was elected Justice of the Peace. On 4 Jun 1798, court records show he was involved in the administration of the estate of Samuel Markoberry. (Marksbury? Possible father of John Marksbury who later may have married Catherine Ray.)

On 28 Dec 1798 Garrard County marriage records show a Susannah Ray marrying John Corkranham. Her relationship to Zachariah is unknown, and there was another Ray family who may or may not be related to Zachariah that moved into Garrard County by 1810. However, it is possible that Susanah could be a daughter of Zachariah born between 1782 and 1787.

Beginning in 1799 Zachariah began to buy land in the Sugar Creek drainage area. On 15 Oct of that year he acquired 100 acres from Ann Walden. In 1800, Zachariah and Mary bought 200 acres of land on Sugar Creek from John Bryant and 200 acres from James and Lewis Sullivan. In 1808 purchased 200 more acres from the Anderson family, probably the buyout of an estate of the father of the four Anderson brothers. All this land was probably between Sugar and Scotch Fork Creek. It was also land well above the creek bed and was later named Poor Ridge. I wonder if that name described the soil in the area.

Early in the 1800’s, Zachariah and Mary had two children. One was a girl who was named either Mary or Martha and was called Polly. The last child was Hezekiah.

On 20 Jul 1803 Garrard County marriage records show a Margaret Ray marrying William Corkran. Her relationship to Zachariah is unknown, and there was another Ray family who may or may not be related to Zachariah that moved into Garrard County by 1810. However, it is possible that Margaret could be a daughter of Zachariah born between 1782 and 1787. Could William be the brother of John Corkranham who married Susanah Ray?

On 17 Dec 1804, Zachariah’s oldest child, Samuel, was married to Susan Teator.

In 1806 he surveyed a road from the Scotch Fork of Sugar Creek to the top of Poor Ridge.

On 29 May 1808, his son William married Nancy Allegy or Allegre.

His daughter, Catherine, is supposed to have married John Marksbury, but no marriage record can be found. There are two John Marksbury Marriages in the early Garrard County records, but both were to different women. No record of Catherine or John can be found on the 1850 census. .

In 1808 he was on a jury for a murder case. The defendant, Phoebe, was convicted and hanged.

On 16 Apr 1810, son Daniel married Jinney Scott. He may had been married earlier to a Kathy Davidson, by whom he is reputed to have a daughter ca. 1805. Daniel would have been only about 15 at the time.

On 6 May 1810, daughter Elizabeth married James Fitzgerald. She was perhaps only 15.

The 1810 Garrard County census list under surname Wray: 1 Male over 45 (Zachariah) 1 Male 16-25 (Michael) 2 Males 10-16 (David and Jefferson) 4 Males under 10 (Hezekiah and three grandsons?) 1 Female over 45 (Mary) 1 Female 25-45 (Could this be Catherine, or Margaret, or Susanah now a widow with children?) 1 Female 16-25 (another widowed daughter with children?) 2 Female 10-16 (Elizabeth, before her marriage?) 4 Female under 10 (Polly and three more grand daughters?)--Parris 03:59, 12 October 2008 (EDT)


Note most of these people have been taxed enumerated as White. photographic evedence shows they were not White. They all appear to be dark skinned, heavily Native American Featured or Melungeon featured. A photo is worth a thousand words -documents.--Parris 04:24, 12 October 2008 (EDT)

The Jeter Mosaic has the following for Nicholas Jeter and William Jeter:

Nicholas Jeter b. before 1715: adm. of his estate named in Caroline Co. Va. 1785. Nicholas was probably reared in Essex Co., Va. In Caroline Co., where all records, with the exception of briefs in Order Books, were later destroyed. Nicholas' name was not noted on Caroline personal property tax records which began in 1783, although he was jpossibly in the home of Elijah Jeter, who was named adm. of his estate two years later. Ellijah's personal property tax 1783-1785 noted two white males. Surviving Caroline Co., Order Books leave few clues to learn of Nicholas Jeter's Life

William Jeter b. before 1711 probably in Essex Co., Va.; wp Ninety Six Dist., Edgefield Co. SC Mar. 1797. m Margaret Vaughn

William has the following children attributed to him:

William Jeter Jr. b. ca 1743 probalbly in Caroline Co. Va. wp Edgefield Co., SC 7 Sep 1820 m1 Mary Phillips, m2 Lucy Speed. 12 Dec 1780

Hal (Henry Jeter) b. ca 1749; recorded on the census of Edgefield SC 1790 with three males under age 16 and total of three females in the household. He was one of the executors of his father's will and was named in it. (My thought- he may have been the father of John Jeter of E. Feliciana Parish, La. listed in the Jeter Mosaic as lost link #8.)

Joseph Jeter b. ca 1751 probably in Lunenburg. Co., Va. wp Barnwell co., SC. 16 Sep 1811 m. Mary ?, who died Barnwell 1840. Was named in his fathers will. 7 children attributed to him.

There seems to be no end to wild speculation fake false fairy tale like genealogy by pass the bucK style genealogy in regards to the Scotch Irish George Teater Sr of Washington Co VA and KY . Example he was a mythical German Dunker a non meat eating person who loved George Washington and abanded his Dunker ways to become a Ensign of the Revolution. He has been protrayed as a mythical character named John George Teter aka Yohan Jurg Deiter. A pesrson who never existed is Washington Co or Kentucky. There was a Dunker named John George Deiter born 1739 who married a niece German girl and died and is buried in Berks PA. He has absolutly nothing to do with the Scotch -Irish George Teater Sr who married Sarah Pearis lived in Washington Co and migrated to Madison Garrard this was George Teater the Negro Slaver son in law of George Pearis and his Indian Woman. Sgt and officer George Teater the Presbyterian branch of The Church of Scotland N Ireland. Not a Saturday worshiping non meat eating Dunker.

Another example is the mythical character named Bejamin Totten a Notorious Tory with his Notorioius TORY father Jonas Totten of New York. So called married a girl named Easter Hikke and ran off to join the Patritos of Virginia. The true Benjamin Totten was born in VA or North Carolina as a Variant of Tuton to Irish Renegade named John Tuton who lived in the area of George and Richard Pearis. This Benajmin Totten appears to be half Irish half Spanish from the John Tuton Gonzalva family. Dozens of documents show his wife estimated was a Crockett from Montgomery Co va ,to be posted and shown on another colum

Thomas Reynolds also appears in dozens of ridulcles mythical genealogy as German settler . He is protrayed as marring Barbara Teiterbeam. this is totally false. The Thomas Reynolds who married Barbara Beam the daughter of John Titterbeam was still in Lincoln Co NC 1790 as proved by the Census Records above. The Thomas Reynolds who came to George Teater in 1789 madison kentucky is well documneted as marrying a wife named Elizabeth not Barbara..

it is documeted that a Thomas Reynods of Lincoln Co NC did marry Barabra Beam but he was not the Thomas Reynolds who was living with George Teater Sr 1790 Madison KY. They are 2 different people as the Census Records show the Thomas Reynolds of Lincoln Co NC was still there in Lincoln Co NC he cannot be the Thomas Reynolds in Madison KY 1790. The Thomas Reynolds of Madison KY shows his wifes name as Elizabeth [not Barbara].. By the records of the Thomas Reynolds of Kentucky and Montgomery Co NC he appears to be Melugeon or some type people simular to the Melugeons.Further weight of this is the DNA results of Levi Reynolds as Haplogroup E3A a very common type of DNA found in the TN and NC VA Melungeons.--Parris 15:22, 12 October 2008 (EDT)

During the years 1782 to 1783 Records show Benjamin Totten was living at the area where George Teaters home and cabin was in Washington Co VA between 1783 and 1785 George Teater made several appearances back in Washington Co VA. The map shows William Gains and George Teater lived about 4 miles from Clarks station which is a Blockhouse well documented home of George Teater Sr and his son Samuel Teater between the years 1779 to 1784, its not know if this William Gains is the same one who was on the musters of Georgia with so many of George Teaers family.--Parris 16:06, 12 October 2008 (EDT)

. This is all very complicated but it will show how these people below were connected to the George Teater of Washington Co and Madison Kentucky. Show how some of them were illiterate and did not know how to spell thier names by signing Tax list Deeds ect with a x / it will show others were highly edcucated and will show the variants in spelling the name Teter to Teder to Tutor to Teterton to Tuder to Teeder to Tettor to Tetor Teetar to Tedar to Teddar some as Teaster. to Teeder to Teeter to Teater to Teator but in most cases they are the same people. Sometimes thier names were simply recorded by the recorder by the way he thought he heard the name. Or by his ability to spell, his own accent from his own country such as Welsh where Teter is spelled and prononuced Tudor. Or England where the the name Teter was Tetter Tetar Teitur Teatter, Scotland Nothern Ireland Tedder Teitur. England Tyther Tyder Tyter Tether Teather Teader Teador Tetard Tester Teastard Teatord In old England the Baily court has dozens of names thru the centuries recorded as just mentioned as does the Brittish census records wills ect. In addition Tedderton Fetterton Teterton Tetherton.. The Scotch -Irish George Teater who married Sarah Pearis of Washington Co VA and Madison KY is recored as Teater Teator Tetor Teter Teeter and Teetar. In some instance they were recorded as Fetter Fiddor as well.. Perhaps one wat to decipher to the brittish isle teters and the alpine Teters Swiss German is by several methods. One way is the religion most Germanic Teters were Luthran or Anabatist Dunkers. The Brittish island Teters were mostly Presbyterians Church of England some Baptists after the Revolution some were Quakers one Willian Teterton of St Marys 1660 was a Catholic. The Dutch came as Vedder which some also morphed to Tedder and Teeter.

Brittish Isle Teters are well noted as Negro slavers whereas this appears to have beena distastefull practice to the Germanic Deiter settlers. A good example is George Teater who he and sons were horrific Negro Slavers. The Brittish Isle Teters had no qualms about Intermarraige with Indians and Melungeons Whereas the Germanic Teters seemed to remain German until after the Revolution.. 1st names Paul Phillip Leonard Hans John seemed to popoular amoung the Germanic Dieters Teter. Samuel George were used with the same frequency in both ethnic groups. James William Jesse Richard Edward Robert were popular in the Brittish Isle group.. The french Huegunots where both Teter Teator Tetor corruptions of Geater Jeter Geter Jetter and Tetaerd Darter Derter Deteterd Tarter. One of the 1st White men from England killed in America was ,Tedder Roberts left as 15 man gaurd in Roanoke Sir Francis Drake Expedition. .

Early Teters were Elizabeth Jeeter Teter 1650s Sommerset Maryland, Thomas Tedder Irish Convicted Rebel 1623 John Tederton 1660 Perquimans Edward Teterton 1650s Gloucetser VA. Robert Teaster 1680 Albemarle NC Wiilaim Teterton 1660s St Marys Maryland severl William Tetertons in Perquimans. Robert Tester 1700 Surry VA Wiliam Featherstone which morphed into Fetterton 1600s. At present there is no wide Teter surname DNA project. Several of the Teaters in Madison KY the line of Thomas Teater is shown as i1b Northern Barbarian type.

The Dobbs County 1790 census shows GEORGE TEDDER, THOMAS TEDDER, MARY BROWN and JAMES GLASGOW living as neighbors. SELVIRAH BROWN (1758-1836) was a sister to Capt. JOHN BROWN who was the father of the powerful JOHN BROWN who was the first Sheriff of Roane County, and later a Colonel in the War of 1812. Selvirah was related to, or a very close friend and neighbor of the politically strong JAMES GLASGOW, SR. who was Secretary of State for North Carolina. His office issued grants for lands in Tennessee. North Carolina issued to JAMES GLASGOW a grant for 5,000 acres located near the mouth of Emory River. JAMES GLASGOW, JR. lived on this Emory River tract, and later his widowed sister, NANCY GLASGOW, who had married WILLOUGHBY WILLIAMS, SR. came to Roane to live, where she married secondly (1816) JOSEPH MCMINN, Governor of Tennessee. THOMAS TEDDER died in Dobbs county, NC in 1799, leaving Selvirah a widow with five children.--Parris 19:11, 12 October 2008 (EDT)

Thomas Tettor and George, George Tedder show on the Dobbs 1780 Tax list and 1790 census in Dobbs. That gives a ten year period of blank Time.. George Tedder shows in 1760 as Teeter Jr under George Teeder Sr he then appears in 1769 Dobbs NC as George Tedder Jr, By 1790 in Dobbs he appears as George Tedder Sr shown with a elder son George Tedder jr. The brother in law of Georg Tedder Sr John Sapp is taxed here here in Madison 2 years earlier 1787 with the time line of George Teater Sr. the 1787 surrogate census of washington Co VA shows a George Teater. it should be his son George Teater Jr.We have seen already that George Teater Sr had dozens of relatives that moved back abd forth between Madison Ky Washington Co Russell Co Wythe County and Jackson TN to Washington Co.. it also noted a Samuel Griffith was also in Dobbs NC 1780 . .

Note both the famiels of George Teater and George Tedder were well documented as Indian fighters. Both had long military notes. . Both were well educated and could read and write English. Both have documents signing in English where as the German Teters Dieters always signed thier documents in German script and most often signed as Deiter., There is not one document that exists in more than 30 yrs of reseArch that show George Teater or his elder brother Samuel Teater were ever recorded as Deiter Detter or in any other Germanic form., only George Teater and George Tedders family are shown together at the same time same places as Teater. George Teater appeared in the South Irish colony on the Crab Creek tract 1768. Appears he came from Georgia were he was for a short time after the being discharged from Nataniel Gists Company and after the birth of his son Samuel 1763.. The Uncle of George Tedder of Dobbs Benajmin Tedder appeared also 1768 as documted delivering a document. This Benjamin Tedder also had a son named George Teter.. George Tedder Sr shows to have had brother William Tedder married to a Jeter also Teter Tetor Teater Teator.. Brother Samuel Teder Tedder the clerk of the Edgcombe NC court 1753. Jacob Tedder also the Clerk of the Edgcombe Court 1753 and benjamin tedder.. George Tedder had sons George Tedder and Thomas Tettor William and Samuel Tedder.. Benjamin Tedder one documeted son George Teter. Other brothers Samuel and William shown in sparse notes in Bladen Cumberland Co s. Benajmin may have had a son Stephen in Richmond..

Both George Tedder and George Teater had intermarriages with Melungeon types and Indian persons most female. Example would be Dread Tutor Tedder of Bladen Co . Or Sarah Pearis or Sarah Santee many more Sarahs Indian Melungeon type. Example George Teater Jr remarried Polly Riddle after death of Mary Van Cleave. Pollys family of Moses Riddle Melungeon Indian ect.. In 1777 George Teater was named as being sick while chasing the Shawnee up the Big Sandy. The next year a George Teater took the Oath of Allegeance in Rowan Co. This could very well have been George Teater Sr since had dozens of relatives living in Rowan Co at the time. The in laws of George Tedder and Thomas Tettor the Glassgows the Sapps also appear same times and places as George Teater Sr.

George Teater Sr and his sons were one the largest Negro Slavers in early Madison and Garrard KY. This indictes a knowledge of Slave control. usually inherited. Note German settlers of the Surname Teter did not Slave nor owned Slaves. Only the Scotch Irish or Brittish Island Teters owned Slaves.. This is documented with both George Teater Sr and George Tedders family.-NEGRO SLAVING.

offspring of George Teeder Sr William Tedder Jacob Teater only one poll 1760 Benjamin Tedder are shown GEO TETER. Only one brother Samuel Tedder the Clerk of Edgecombe has no Records of children. By his timline and education specualte here, he appears as the Most probable father of Samuel Gibson Teater and younger brother George Teater Sr., Samuel Teater did appear in Rowan Co 1766 as Capt Teeter. He appears to have departed with Daniel Boone from Rowan Co French Indian War. George Teaters Sr father inlaw george pearis settled in rowan co 1764., The nameimg pattern is identical Samuel George and William..

Samuel Tedder the Clerk of the Edgcombe Court appears as stronest candidate as the father of Samuel Gibsosn Teater and George Teater Sr. There is no Teter surname DNA project. To compare and contrast all the Teters Tedders who lived at that time period. At prresent are only documents. In the end DNA testing will tell the truth.--Parris 07:16, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

. This a tanslated version of Samuel Teaters bible in his own handwriting from Sue Drapers site. A page from Samuel and Mary's 1803 family Bible scanned from photocopies contributed by Rev. Dr. Frank McDonald Spindler (descendant of Charity)

BIRTHDATES Samuel Teater was born January __1735; Mary Teter was born January 5th 1748; Samuel Teter their son was born August 26th 1770; Susannah Teater was born April 20th 1773; George Teter was born Sept 26th 1775; John Teater was born January 11th 1777; Charity Teter was born November 21st 1779; Mary Teter was born June 9th 1782; Daniel Teter was born April 11th 1787.

Note Samuel Teater was born 1735 Jan more near to 1734.. Note Their 1st born son Samuel Teater was born 1770.. This would OF made Samuel about 35 36 ears old. note in 1768 Samuel Teater was listed on the Bedford Tax List as a single man.. This would put his marriage to Mary Doddridge about 1769. Note Mary ethnic English Scotch background, not German. Note Samuel wrote he was birthed as Teter not [Deiter]. Note he writes all his children again as Teter not Deiter. note in 1778 Daniel Boone called him his friend, a old friend. Note Daniel Boone was only in the French Indian War 6 months and returned to Rowan Co North Carolina.. To suggest Daniel Boone made deep friends for only 6 months of hectic horror filled days prior and during Braddocks deafeat then automaticlly remebering a boy in 1778 from 1756 is impossible.. The only possible way Daniel Boone and Capt Samuel Teater could be Old Friends is that Samuel Teater was from Rowan Co NC. Note Samuel Teter-Ton aka. Samuel Teder was with his wife Mary Evans 1730 in Surry VA.. william Teter-ton shows in the Tyrell Milita 1720 time. There is no way to estimate one son named Samuel Teder, who was the clerk of Edgecombe Court 1753.. The Headstone of Samuel Teater on the Mcdonlad farm shows the name Gibson between Samuel and Teater. His middle name was Gibson but never recorded as Gibson only on his headstone.. Most all Gibsons in Surry VA and Tidewater NC were either Tusccaroa ,Chief Walter Gibsion uncle of General Elijah Clark. The other Gibsons were a Pirate family stationed in Perquuimans and the the Gibssons Highland Scots in Bladen Wilmington . The were also a large group of people called Melungeans also in the same area with the surname Gibson. Walter Gibson and his family were always recorded as as White. But Walter Gibson did sign the lease of Tuscaroroa land in Betie as Chief Walter Gibson.. Samuel Teder shows that 2 brothers George Teeder Sr and Jacob Teeder -Teater moved to Rowan Co by 1759 or earlier.. From 1759 to 1766 Samuel Teater has no records. His brother George Teater Sr is recorded from 1760 to 1763 in Virginia Botetourt area that would be where George Pearis lived at Goose Creeck a fork of the Roanoke - New River..

1766 Capt Teeter apears on the tax list of Rowan Co. This can only be the Capt Teater Daniel Boone called his friend and the Capt Teater who fought at the Siege of Boonesborough.. . Theres no proof only common sense Samuel Teater went to Rowan co with George TeaTers father in law George Pearis. about the same the same time 1764 or he went home to his uncles 1760 in Rowan co. NC. Note George Teater can be documented at the area of his father in law George Pearis 1763 Botetourt . Note Boteturt was not legally instituted until later. George Teater and Sarah Pearis would of have lived at Goose Creek New River Roanoke ecr. 1765 George Teater and some Parris family are found in Parts of Georgia., 1768 Samuel Teater is found in the North at bedford as a Singleman. His in laws by marraige Archer Worleys family were there by 1728 ,the 1st Indian Traders noted they came from VA. A brother of Archer Worley or close family was Col John Worley of Tyrell NC. A relative of Samuel Tetertons brother William Teterton. Documents show some worleys were intermarried with various Gibsons, or the Gibsons were inlaws..

Samuel Teater married around 35 yeard old to Mary Doddridge. It makes sense he was was a Widower . Its highly doubtfull he waited till 35 yrs old to marry. He would have been simular to George Teater Sr and married about 1760. He would of had a wife who died about 1767 in Rowan Co.. There was another young George Teater documented in Rowan Co during the Revolution. This should be Capt Samuel Gibsons oldest son from 1st wife in Rowan Co NC.--Parris 11:15, 14 October 2008 (EDT)


pg 167 Aug 6 1778 George Teater took oath of allegiance ( court min. book 4:163 )

pg201 Tax 1782-1783 Capt Matthew Troy's Company George Teeter 30 pounds, Horses and Mules, Cattle . NOTE in 1777 George Teater was out with Capt Edmiston on a chase of the the Shawnee. George Teater was descibed as very ill when they were on the on the Big Sandy. The whole battle was called off on account of George Teater. This means he was well loved and respected by his men, George Teater also ran Edminstons Platoon Lord Dunmores War 1774. Noted as one of the 1st explorers of Kentucky and the man who actually took Daniel Boone into Kentucky was John Findly Private under Sgt George Teater.,

in 1792 george teater signed the petiton to form the State of Kentucky. He noted as all the other senior leading men of Kentucky that they took the Oath of Allegiance. It appears that when George Teater recovered from his illness 1777 He went back to Rowan Co so many reasons are eligible here. Such as most of his family were there in Rowan Co NC.,

note by 1782 A Younger GeorgeTteater a Young man was there in Rowan Co. George Teaters son George Jr seems to have been engaed back in Washington Co or off at the battle of Kings mountain as the young Ensign George Teater. He married in 1788. to a girl from Rowan Co.. The young George Teater in Mathew Troys Co shoud be a son of Capt Samuel Gibson Teater and a unamed wife when Capt Teeter was living in Rowan Co 1766.. During this time period George Teater Sr and his son were in Kentucky. The year 1783 Capt Samuel Teater is mentioned as raising a company in VA to go aginst the Delaware tribe in New York.. The only thing that makes sense is this was a son of Capt Samuel Gibson Teater who became a Widower in Rowan Co by 1766. He may have left this son in the care of his brother George Teater Sr and his wife Sarah Pearis this is more practical.. Note He cannnot be the geroeg Teter of Carrabus he was to old to be this George Teater. The George Teater of Caarabus shows to be from South Carolina and was way tO old in 1790 to be this boy here in Rowan Co 1783,--Parris 11:53, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

He was twice married and had eleven children by each marriage. His wives' names are not known. John Jeter's children: (these appear to be John II's children) 1.

Note. this one of the Biggest monumentsl mistake in Teter history and genalogy.. This person has been written as the George Teater of Washington Co va and madison ky Its in the book the Teater Family of Kentucky. This is consitantly wrong and false information about the George Teater who married Sarah Pearis of Washington Co and Madison kentucky. The truth is George Teater was born 1736 in NC or Surry VA.. He was not a Long Bearded German Dunker who worshshiped on Saturday and did not eat meat. Actually he was in the Beef Business according to his records. There is not one document in the world that shows his name was John. There is not one document that can shown as Deiter. All of this information is documented as false by the book above, It was written by the grandchildren of John George Deiter the German Dunker who was born 1739.. This family is documeted as living at the Opequon. this family did not remain in Virginia they went back to Berks PA and died there. Pass the buck fairy tale geneaolgy on the Scotch Irish George Teater a Presbyterian continues to destroy the real reputation of Sgt George Teater who married Sarah Pearis. Note these Deiters Dunkers came on the Ship Allen then to the Opequan left and went back to PA., Fact this books shows and documents the truth the John George Dieter born 1739. The Ship Allen Dieters left Virginia settled in Berks PA and died there.--Parris 12:58, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

   The beginning of the church at Long Cane was in a fort where the settlers would go for safety. After the Cherokee and the Creek massacres people built Fort Boone which served as a haven of safety as well as a "school house" and also served as a "meeting house" where the settlers assembled for worship. In an Act, dated February 7, 1780, the church at Fort Boone was incorporated as the "Presbyterian Church called Fort Boone congregation at Long Cane settlement." Prior to this Long Cane Associate Reformed Presbyterian church was organized in 1771 as Associate Presbyterian church. A number of the congregation were from Ireland who along with about one hundred families left Newry, Ireland for America. They arrived in New York on the 28th of July on the ship John. This large body of passsengers were all part of the Rev. Clarke�s congregation from Ireland. Part of this group went to Salem, New York and the other part migrated to Long Canes section and formed the congregations of Little Run, Long Cane and Cedar Creek (later Cedar Spring) churches. Dr. Clark visited his congreation in 1771 as a result of this visit the church was organized. He also visited the church in 1779, as an order of Presbytery and again he visited in 1782. Dr. Clark spent the remainder of 1782 and the greater part of 1783 at Long Cane, Little Run (Little River) and Cedar Spring (organized in 1782. In the summer of 1783 he was called North and identified himself with the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church (organized in 1782); and during this time he labored as a missionary among the churches of this branch in the North.
   Sometime between 1772 and 1775 Rev. William Martin came to America in 1772 from Ballymena, Ireland and who was pastor at Catholic church, Chester county, preached at Long Cane. Another supply minister Rev. William Ronaldson also preached at the church as well as at Joppa, Jefferson county, Georgia, and at Poplar Springs, Georgia. Dr. Clark preached his last sermon at Long Cane Meeting House, December 25, 1791, he died soon afterwards. A larger church replaced the same site of the original log church on land that was given by James Hutcherson survey. Following Dr. Clark�s death Long Cane had supplies for four years. The first year, the Rev. Peter McMillan (frequently written as McMullan) pastor of Due West, supplied when he was able.
   In 1770, Rev. Alexander Porter, the first native-born minister of the Presbytery of the Carolinas and Georgia was born. He was born and grew up near Parsons� Mount (named by the owner of this mount and surrounding land, James Parsons, a lawyer, of Charleston), Abbeville County. After completing his education and theological training at Dickinson College, Pennsylvania and having been licensed to preach by the Second Associate Reformed Presbytery of Pennsylvania, he returned home and began to preach at Long Cane and Cedar Spring, January 1, 1797. On March 22, 1797, a call was moderated for him, and signed by the following members:

It should be mentioned there was one more line of Teters that lived in the middle of the Teters already discussed. Most of these appear to have come from Scotland..  A EXCERPT from the Teaster site.

Who was the first of the Teasters to come to America?

The known family trail becomes very faint after Samuel (regardless if there was one or two). The following facts have been found through research but await further study to see how they relate to our family for certain.

Samuel ‘s father is identified as Nathaniel Teaster in the book "Appalachian Medley". A Nathaniel Teaster was in the Edgecombe County, North Carolina Militia in the 1750’s. There was a Nathaniel Tester in the 1790 Census of Robeson County , North Carolina. There was also a Samuel Tester listed in the same census. Also Nathan Tester was given a 100 acre land grant in Robeson County, NC in 1790. William Tester and Samuel Tester were also granted 100 acres in the same time and place. (See Family Related Book Section.) Who are these other Teasters (Testers) and are they related to us?

In addition to the John Teaster of 1567, there are a number of references to Teaster (Tester) individuals and families in various books and records that we can not yet connect to our direct line - that of Grandpa Ransom’s. These people need to be researched to see if they are in our line. The people listed probably give valuable clues as to where we are from and who was the first of line to settle in this country . Some of these are :

The many descendants of Robert Tester (Teaster) and Mary (Molly) Stone. Robert was in the Revolutionary War. He and Mary lived in North Carolina and had five children. The family moved to Tennessee. This family lived in the same neighborhoods as our known ancestors. They have many of the same first names as our family. No direct connection with this family has been yet made to ours. Members of this family are featured in the county history books of Johnson, Carter and Washington County, Tennessee. (See Family Related Book Section.)

Robert Teaster and Katherine Teaster (spelled like us) are listed as being imported as indentured servants into Virginia on September 5, 1723. The couple was indentured to John Hatley. He was granted 125 acres of land for bringing them over. The land given was in Surry County on the South side of the Nottoway River and on the South side of Thweat’s Branch. (This is from page 225 of the book "Cavaliers and Pioneers; Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants")

There was a will filed for Robert Tester (Teaster) in Albemarle County, North Carolina on January 8, 1695. (From page 374 of book Abstract of Wills of North Carolina, 1690 - 1760 by Grimes).

There was a Rob (Robert) Tester (Teaster) listed as paying land rent in Prince George County, Virginia in 1704. A Rob Hix and a Jn (John) Hix are also listed on the same roll. (From page 337 of Volume 28, Virginia Historical Magazine, Virginia Quit Rent Rolls, 1704).

Elizabeth Tester (Teaster) is recorded as being buried in the Parish of St. Michaels in Barbados on March 3, 1678. (From page 432 - Parish Registers , taken from book "The Original Lists of Persons of Quality, Emigrants; Religious Exiles; Political Rebels; Serving Men Sold for a Term of Years; Apprentices; Children Stolen; Maidens Pressed; and Others Who Went From Great Britain to the American Plantations 1600 - 1700" published in 1874).

Stephen Tester and his wife Jane Tester (Teaster) are recorded as sailing from the port of London to the state of Maryland in the week of January 24 - 30 in 1775. They were listed as being from the Essex area of Great Britain. His occupation is given as a sawyer. They sailed on a ship named the "Jane". All of the people on this ship had an agreement with the captain that if they could not pay for their passage upon arrival in Maryland , then he was allowed to sale them as indentured servants to get his money. (From page 130 of book " Emigrants from England , 1773 - 1776" - Genealogical Publishing Co., Baltimore, Maryland)

Abraham (Abram) Tester (Teaster) was a crew member of the famous Northern warship "The Monitor" during the Civil War. Abraham’s shipboard job was 1st Class Fireman . This meant he stoked and cared for the ship’s boilers. He enlisted in the federal navy New York. His civilian occupation was machinist. (From page 150 of the Publication "The Genealogical Helper " July - August , 1983).

Andrew Tester (Teaster) served 325 days in the South Carolina militia during 1781 and 1782. Also Benjamin Tester (Teaster) served in the First South Carolina regiment under Captain Joseph Elliot during 1780. (From page 923 of "Roster of Patriots in American Revolution" by Bobby Moss.)--Parris 17:52, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

This could be a coincedence. Samuel Pepper was the brother in law of George Pearis. it could have been Samuel Pepper who arranged to have George Teetar purchase a tract from Frederick Starn.--Parris 16:45, 15 October 2008 (EDT)

SOME NOTES BY THE SMETLZERS. Paulser was one of the earliest adventurers on the waters of Crab Creek in present Montgomery Co., VA. He first appeared in 1754 when he purchased part of the Patton tract of 1,096 acres. (Note: Augusta Co. formed 1738-45 from Orange Co.) On 12 Jan 1754 Augusta Co., VA Paulser paid James Patton 5 shillings for one year indenture on 440 acres (Bk. 11 p.441)(land surveyed by Patton in 1748; rest of survey was sold in 1749 to Widow Elswick (Lydia wife of John)and Ebenezer Westcoat.)

On 13 Jan, 1754 Augusta Co., VA Paulser bought 440 acres from James Patton on Crab Creek (off of the New River) (Bk 6, p. 312) (Note: This land sold in 1787 by Paulser's son John--see below--by then land fell in Montgomery Co.)

In 1754-55, there were Indian raids in area of Paulser's land (see story of Mary Ingles captivity -- "Follow the River" and "Indian Raids and Massacres of SW Virginia by Addington and Hamilton).

Paulser had 189 acres surveyed on 5 Apr 1755 in Bedford Co., VA. (Survey Bk. 2, pg. 271)(Note: Bedford Co., VA formed 1753 from Albemarle & Lunenburg Cos. and is SE of where he lived) 1758 - 17 Feb., an appraisal of the estate of Col. James Patton (he was killed by Indians in 1753) indicated that Paulser "Melser" had owed money to estate for land purchased 17 Jan. 1754.

1759 - Augusta Co., VA "Palzer Smalzer" purchased 440 acres in Draper Tract part of a patent on Crab Creek A (same property as above).

1761 - Augusta Co., VA "Palzer Smelzer" vs. Frederick "Stem" of New River. The warrant was "kept off by force of arms". (Chronicles of the Scotch Irish Settlement in Virginia Records of Augusta Co., VA 1745-1800 by Lyman Chalkley) (Note: Frederick Stern was a neighbor who in 1750 surveyed and in 1755 was granted land at mouth of New River and Crab Creek. Stern sold his land in 1768 to George Teeter)

Here again this coud be a coincedence but the Smeltzers were living back in Limerick Ireland with several George Tettlers.--Parris 17:04, 15 October 2008 (EDT)


Jacob Deller, smith, age 22, Lutheran, alone in the 4th party of Palatines at St. Catherine's, June 11, 1709.

Families of County Limerick, Ireland

Description: There are only a handful of books to help research families in Limerick and this one is the best produced to date.

It focuses exclusively on families found in County Limerick and includes families of all religions and backgrounds, including old Irish families and settler families from England, Scotland, Wales..... from the earliest times to the coming of the 20th century. It follows the master volume to the set, 'The Book of Irish Families, great & small" which contains information on families from all of Ireland. An outline of the history of the county as it relates to Irish families, and to Irish research, is included, along with an exhaustive enumeration of more than one thousand of Limerick families. It will be of great use to anyone researching families from Co. Limerick, Ireland.

The following families were specifically identified as families of County Limerick more anciently in that work. Mac Eneiry Mac Ineiridhe O' Billry or O' Billraidhe O' Cullane O'Cuillein or Collins O' Meehan O' Sheehan O'Mackessy or O'Maelmacasa Mulholland or O'Maelchalloin O' Flannery Mac Sheehy MacArthur O' Scanlan

Tettler Tettlor Paris Smeltzer Griffith Peppar Griffis.--Parris 18:54, 15 October 2008 (EDT)

This all should explain why George Teater was named as Scotch Irish. Its to much of a coincedence that several George Teters and Paul Smeltzers were living together in Limericak Ireland. All these familes of George Teater that lived in the South Irish Colony on the Crab Creek Tract Peppers Millers Smeltzers and Pearis Paris familes have one main thing in common they show to have come from limerick ireland.. There 2 George Teters and one Paul Smeltzer back in Limerick and several Jacob Teters. Since both Paul Smeltzer and George Teater were both connected to Frederick Starns by propery it demonstrates that they were from Ireland. This in theory shows the that a Teter mixed with one of Irish Scotch or Scotcch Irish families back in Limerick Ireland thus producing people like George Teater and Samuel Teater..

The Teters of limerick Ireland were Methodits

In Ballygirrane ( Ballygarrane) their is a church known as " The Embury and Heck Memorial ". These families were instrumental in the foundation of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Nth. America. . The Bullock's horn is, on display in the church, was called the faithful to prayer in John Wesley's time.

Barbara was born in there in 1734. She married Paul Heck, whose home was on the site now occupied by the church. In June 1763, they emigrated from Limerick on the "Pery" , with Barbara's cousin, Philip Embury and his wife Margaret ( nee Swtitzer) . The house in which Philip was born is long gone, but a granite marks its site opposite Walter Ruttle's house at "Fairview".

History of the Methodist Espiscopal Church in the United States of America. "we next find our missionaries on the waters of Cross Creek and Buffalo, kindly received by John and Philip Dodridge, and their old brother-in-law, Samuel Teeter. These all, with the greater part of their numerous families, fell into the ranks of Methodism; and Joseph, son of John Dodridge, became a traveling preacher � and the first raised up in the great valley � of considerable promise and success. [8] On the land of John Dodridge was built a little log meeting-house, which Dr. Joseph Dodridge insisted � the last conversation I had with him � was the first on this side of the mountains. The original Society here has had the place of its meeting transferred to Middletown, midway from Wellsburg or Steubenville to Washington; hence, going east on that road, a short distance before you reach Middletown, you leave on your right hand, within one mile, Dodridge's Meeting-house, and the sleeping dust of many of the first members of the Methodist Church in the head of the great valley. Before I leave this section, I must be permitted to say that the Dodridge and Teeter families, and the Society in their neighborhood � and I knew them well more than forty years ago � were a noble, free-hearted set of Christian people, who loved one another, and served God with humility of mind. We still have scores, yea, hundreds of their descendants with in the pale of Methodism. I am not sure that Cooper and Breeze ever got out any further toward the Ohio River; but if they did, it does not appear that they made any permanent stand. In those days there were perilous times; Indian depredations were quite common. Next I find these devoted servants of Christ raising the flag on Muddy Creek, where a Society was formed, and a meeting-house built, called Shepherd's Meeting-house. It was a small log building. Methodism still lives in that place, although those who first were brought under its influence, having served their generation, by the will of God, have fallen asleep.--Parris 05:47, 16 October 2008 (EDT)

A except from the Will of George Pearis Parris the elder. Note why was George Teater a Scotch Irish Presbyterian. George Teaters great grandparnets appear to be the Detlors Tettlers Teter ect. they may have intermixed with Irish Scotch or a combunaton of all sometme back at 1690s to early 1700 s in Limereck Irieland. These Teters were Methodists back in Ireland. So why was George Teater a Presbyterian? Amen Blessed by God. Imprimis, I give my body to the Earth from whence it was formed and order it to be buried at the- [Presbyterian meeting house]- in the county aforesaid in faith awaiting its Resurrection form thence at the last day. As for my burial, I desire I may decrease without pomp or state at the descretion of my executors hereafter named who I doubt not will attend with all requisite care and prudence as to my wishes. I will and positively order that all my lawful debts be paid and fully discharged. Then I give and bequeath to my Daughter Christian Neally one English Crown by reason I gave her a childs part already. Item I give and bequeath to my eldest son George Pearis one English Crown, Item I give my second son Richard Pearis that tract of land I bought of Peter Nelson whereon he now dwells to him, his heirs and assigns forever together with my best riding horse and my wearing apparel. Item I give and bequeath to my third and youngest son Robert Pearis that tract of patent land which I bought of William Hoge whereupon I now dwell for the use of him and his heirs forever, Item I give and bequeath to my dear and loving wife Sarah, one end of my dwelling house ever which end she thinks best to choose during her lifetime or widowhood and also I do order and allow her twenty bushels of wheat and twenty bushels of Indian corn to be paid to her year by year by my said son Robert Pearis during her life or widowhood together with one third part of all my movable estate not disposed of yet. All bonds and bills and book debts what so ever accepted the remainder whereof shall fall to my son Robert after all my debts be discharged. Item I do leave that tract of land which I bought of Richard Morgan in the care of my son Robert for the space of seven years ensuing the date hereof and at the expiration of seven years I order it be sold and the price thereof lett out on interest and principal sum together with the interest shall be paid to my grandson George Pearis’s oldest son called George at the age of twenty one years..

Note George Teater would have been been a Methodist but his marraige to Sarah Pearis whos family were Presbyterians invited George Teater to particiapte in his wifes church, Note his brother in law George Pearis the son of George Pearis is mentioned. Yet George Teater notes show so many with Robert Pearis the other brother. George Teater was also with Richard Pearis in the same Regiment French indian war. He also ran as Sgt the company of Natathaniel Gist who was the partner of Richard Pearis in the Cherokee Nations.--Parris 06:47, 16 October 2008 (EDT)

NOTE THE SPANISH IS RESTRICTED ONLY TO THE LINES OF PARIS TEATER AND THE TOTTENS, FATIMA GONZALVA BUENA ZULIMA JUAN ECT.--Parris 09:35, 16 October 2008 (EDT)

NOTE The Gonzalvas were Spanish. , Notes from the Gonzalva file site some excerpts.. note Charles Gonzalva was on the the documents of Lord Dunmores war with John Totten George Teater Robert Pearis George Pearis and man more. Charles Gonzalva was a Debtor for one mare. note Charles Gonzlava resdident of Washington Co VA,. note The Gonzalva family captured and killed at Greenbier. Some raised as Indians. note The Gonzalvas incedent happened same time as the Thomas Ingles and Mary Ingles Incedent. note, John Miller married Marry Ingles. note Andrew Millaer the son of John Miller recieved Benjamin Totten 1768 as his Apprentice. note Both John Totten and Benjamin Totten stationed with Thomas Ingles 1781 Burkes Garden. note Andrew Millar John Poterfield Peter Totten 1779 old 96th SC. note john tuton renegade Irishman northern neck near Goose Creek. note The deeds of Richard Pearis George Pearis northern neck note George Pearis residence at Goose Creek. note The family of George Teater and Benjamin Totten continue to use the Spanish and Gonzalva as family nameing pattern. note The Gonzalvas another major family of Washinhton Co Va. note the gonzalvas patriots of the revolution. Thoery . John Tuton the renegade Irishman of the northern neck married a Gonzalva girl which explains the names in the Teaters and Tottens. They lived at the same places and same timeline. The Gonzlvas of the timeline of the Ingles Wiped out and captured as Thomas Ingles raised by the Shawnee... Benjamin Totten was obviously a Orphan by 1768 expalins why he was bound to Andrew Miller who was a step brother of Thomas Ingles who was John and Benjamin Tottens closet people in 1781.. note Timothy Logan son in law of Squire Boone stated he fought alongside Charles Teater and Samuel Teater. The name Charles maybe linked to Charles Gonzalva.
