JOHN AND NANCY TEAGUE

John C. Teague, a Miller and Surveyor by trade was born, June 21st, 1786, in Laurens County, South Carolina. He was the oldest son of the several children that William Teague ,1761-1845, and his wife Elizabeth Miller had. He moved with his parents to Wilson County, Tennessee in 1806 and later to Hardeman County. He married Nancy, born 1784 in North Carolina, died in 1861 in Hardeman County. They are both buried in Clover Creek Cemetery. Source: Elizabeth Greer McMaster

Editors note:

Based on the fact that Nancy was not in the home at the time of the 1850 census, one might assume she had passed away prior to 1850 rather than the 1861 identified by Ms. McMaster. I would like to know the source documents used to validate Nancy's death.

As recently as 2/01 I found sources refrencing Elizabeth Greer McMaster and giving Nancy's maiden name as Nancy Gaston Burton (b: 1784 in North Carolina). For some time I and other researcher were not aware of Nancy's maiden name and should some one have that source information , I would like it as well.

They had nine children: (1) William Gaston Teague*, (1811-1884) married in 1831 Amelia Thomas (1811-1884), daughter of Zacchariah Thomas, (2) Rhoda W. Teague (1812-1892), married Isiah Flinn (1808-1838), in 1828. (3) Joseph Bright Teague, (1817-after 1880) married first Elizabeth Comer In 1844 and Susan S. Windell in 1877. He was Justice of the Peace and assisted Scott in removal of Indians to the Reservations. Joseph was a Confederate soldier and saddle maker; (4) Josiah Teague, (1818-after 1856) married Mary Ann Upton in 1852. He was Justice of the Peace, farmer and saddle maker. (5) Elizabeth Teague (1814-1902) married John Ingram Walton in 1838. (6) Abner D. Teague, (1825) married Martha C. Obner was a wagon maker and black- smith. (7) Margaret Catherine Teague, (1826) married James Monroe Walton in 1847. (8) Henry M. Teague (1827) married first, Susan Frances Daniel in 1851, then Eliza A. Thompson in 1868. (9) Joshua Monroe Teague (1829-1910) married Catherine Dean in 1856. They moved from South Carolina to Hardeman County. Here the Teague family purchased land in the early 1820's. A Baptist Church was established in 1826 at Clover Creek, and John Teague and his family were active members. Church records reflect John in the church rolls until his death in 1870. In 1849, John gave two and one-half acres of land on which to build the church. The Church later was moved to Medon, Tennessee in 1914 although the old cemetery remains at its original location.

Teague, Tennessee on the Tennessee Central Railroad (now Illinois Central) was named for this family. John Teague, besides operating his mill with two dams on the Clover Creek, was an early surveyor of land in West Tennessee. According to family tradition he said, "These acres will be all that my family and I will ever need." He was a member of the Unity Association of Primitive Baptist Churches and a member of the Sons of Temperance. His residence was on the Hardeman-Madison County line and records were found in both counties. THE NASHVILLE UNION AMERICAN of 18 February 1873, records: John Teague, 92 years old, a citizen of Hardeman County and a soldier of 1812 died at his home and is buried in the Clover Creek Cemetery. His request was that his millstone be placed at the head of his grave in the cemetery. This stone still stands and though no markings are on it, nearby tombstones of other members of the family furnish further evidence to substantiate the identification of the site. -- By Elizabeth Greer McMaster
