(Cecil County MD LIbre 5, Folio 226, 324, 327, 365).
16. Story. 1755 In the 1 Sept 1736 deed to Joseph Frazier, William is joined by his wife Isabell. In the 18 Jun 1737 deed to John Graham, Isabell is not mentioned. The assumption is that she must have died between these dates.

The 130-acre tract of land is located in Cecil County, MD, "on the east side of the Susquehanna River at the mouth of a creek called Connawingo Creek." Also on the 18th of June 1737, William Teague sold 50 acres to Robert Patterson; both men were of Cecil County, MD. William purchased this land from Nathaniel Dougherty of Baltimore County, who had purchased it from the proprietary by letters of a patent bearing the date of 9 Oct 1733; Nathaniel did grant this land to William (no date given). This tract of land is located on the northeast side of the Susquehanna River and adjacent to the land William Teague sold to Abraham Pennington (Cecil County MD LIbre 5, Folio 226, 324, 327, 365).
19. Story. 1757 About the year 1730, in order to hasten the settlement of the frontier of Virginia on the upper reaches of the Potomac River, a large tract of land was granted to John and Isaac Van Metre of Pennsylvania. Another tract was also granted to Lord Fairfax. As a result of the terms under which land could be acquired from these two grantees a great many families migrated to this section of Virginia and in a short time Orange and Frederick counties came into being.
20. Property: Orange County, Maryland Colony. 1758 A record of William Teague is found in the Fredrick County, VA court house. He was a settler on the Hite-Van Metre lands. His property was a part of a 300 acre tract, then in Orange County, granted to Richard Pendell, 3 Oct 1734. 88 acres of it was conveyed by Pendell, 121 acres from James Brown "lying on the south side of the Cohongoluta river" (Potomac River above its confluence with the Shenandoah). Another 145 acres was granted by Thomas, Lord Fairfax, 11 Oct 1750. The property from Pendell is described as being on a branch of the "Shenandore" River, called the Cattail Branch, while the one from Brown was situated on the Potomac, probably between Martinsburg and Mecklenburg. A small stream called Teague's Run empties into the Potomac in the vicinity of Shepardstown. In 1751, William Teague prepared to emigrate to the Carolinas and began to dispose of his properties, according to the Frederick County, VA records. On 13 Jun 1751, 88 acres to Benjamin Sebastin. On 17 Aug 1751, 145 acres to his son Elijah Teague. On same date, 121 acres to Robert Fulsham. On 3 Oct 1751, 145 acres to Abraham Teague.

William disposed of the remainder of his land on 2 and 3 Oct 1751: to Abraham Teague, 48 acres and to Elijah Teague, the 145-acre Fairfax grant land and 64 acres of the Pendal patent land (Frederick Co VA Deed Book 2, pp409, 436, 440, 442, 447).

28. Story, 1751. 1763 In 1751 William Teague decided to move down into North Carolina and began selling his land in Frederick County, Virginia. In the genealogy of Duke-Shepard-Van Metre Family by Samuel G Smyth Edward Teague (Rev. Edward Teague) was mentioned as the eldest of William Teague's children and the last of the Teagues to leave Fredrick County. William's two younger sons, Joshua and William Jr, came with him to North Carolina. During the next six years, they were joined by the other four sons: Edward, Moses, Abraham, Elijah, and their families. It is apparent from the records that all of them settled for a time in Rowan County, on Abbotts Creek.
29. Story, 1756, Abbotts Creek Baptist Church Cemetery, Davidson County, North Carolina, United States. 1764 Abbotts Creek Primitive Baptist Church, now in Davidson County, was founded 1756. The old church burned and a new one was built in 1980. There are many Teagues buried in the cemetary there. It is located 1 mile N of Wallburg-High Point Rd (off NC #109) on E side of Abbotts Creek Church Rd and corner of Curry Rd.
30. Story. Entries in NC Gazetteer for "Abbotts Creek" includes a creek that rises in NE Davidson County and flows SW into Yadkin River. There is also an Abbotts Creek Township in NE Davidson County, and an Abbotts Creek Township in SE Forsyth County. These areas border each other. In the same area is Teaguetown (in SE Forsyth) and Teague Rd (in NE Davidson County, leading to Abbotts Creek Ch Rd on my DeLorme map). The area is just west of High Point.
31. Story. 1696 There is a tradition that the Teagues came from Virginia into North Carolina and settled in the central part of the state in the area of Siler City sometime in th early part of the eighteenth century. This tradition is corroborated by records in Virginia that in the earlier part of the eighteenth century there lived a William Teague that was the father of Elijah, Edward, Benjamin, and Rachel Teague, and probably the father of Abraham, Moses and Isaac Teague, who were living in Virginia at that time. This William Teague is said to have removed to the Carolinas. It would appear likely that all his sons came with him, or followed him into North Carolina. During the period of 1740-60 we find most of these names appearing in the area of Siler City and Pittsboro, NC.
32. Occupation: Planter.
33. Story. 1765 William went to North Carolina with his two younger sons, Joshua and William. They were the first of the clan to settle in NC. In the next six years they were joined by the other four sons (Rev. Edward, Moses, Abraham, and Elijah) and their families.
34. Story. William Teague, son of Edward and Susan Teague, was born in 1693 in Cecil Co, MD, and married Isabela (Loftin) Pennington, dau of Thomas Loftin, in 1714. He sold his lands in Cecil Co and moved to Frederick Co, VA, ca 1737. From there he moved to the Carolinas ca 1751. The children of William and Isabella were Edward, Moses, Abraham, Elijah, Joshua, and William. ("Marylanders to Carolina.

36. Story. 1767 William Teague and some of his sons settled in Rowan Co, NC. Later, some of the sons settled in the area of Orange County which became Chatham County. It is not known when William Teague died, nor where. He may have died in NC or SC. There was a William Teague who died in Craven Co, SC, which could be this William or his son William Jr. One grant is dated 5-5-1772, the other was made in 1771. Some of William's family settled in SC. William's son William married Elenor Simonson whose father's will is recorded in SC.
37. Story. [there are William Teague entries in Chatham Co in 1759, but it is unlikely that they belong to this William, as he is in Rowan in 1753 and also in 1761]

(According to Teague Family Index on web at www.seankell.com/familytree/teague)
William married Isabella LOFTIN, daughter of William LOFTIN and Elizabeth IVES, in 1714 in Cecil County, Maryland Colony. (Isabella LOFTIN was born on 19 Dec 1693 in Musketta Creek, St George's Parish, Baltimore, Maryland and died in 1737 in Cecil County, Maryland Colony.)
