(Abt 1755-Abt 1804)
Edward Teague is reported deceased in Feb 1805 Chatham Co court records.
Noted events in his life were:
1. Appearance in Document, 24 Jun 1782. 822 From Treasurer and Comptroller's Papers, Revolutionary Pay Vouchers, Dept of History and Archives in Raleigh, number 471, State of North Carolina, L 150. The auditors for the said State, this is to certify that Edward Teague [maybe this one] exhibited his claim and was allowed the sum of one hundred and fifty pounds.
2. Story: Chatham County, North Carolina, United States. 822 There were three Edward Teague's in Chatham County from about 1760 thru the 1780's. Two are known as Edward Teague Sr and Edward Teague Jr, and are descendants of William Teague of Cecil County MD and Frederick Co VA. The third Edward Teague [this one] is somewhat unknown, and we as yet have been unable to determine his place in the Teague family. Judging from the births of his children [as early as 1783] and the 1800 census, he was born ca 1755 to 1760. He could not be the Edward Sr or Edward Jr. He could be the Edward mentioned in the Revolutionary record above. His estate was settled in Chatham Co in 1805. A letter to Oma Cadwallader from a member of this family gives the following information: Edward Teague married Margaret (Peggy) McDaniel. Their children were John (b 6-2-1789), Edward (b ca 1786, d 12-27-1855 in Pike County, IN), Willis (b ca 1783), Martha, Patty, Susannah, and Margaret (or Peggy).
3. Census, 1800, Chatham County, North Carolina, United States. Edward Teague entry is 2 males under 10 [unknown], 2 males 10-16 [John, Edward], 1 male 16-26 [Willis], 1 male 26-45 [Edward], 3 females under 10 [Susannah, unknown], 1 female 26-45 [Margaret]. (Chatham Co, p195)
4. Story. Faye Teague Caynor says: In the loose Estate Papers of Edward Teague [found at NC Archives] there was an inventory and it was signed by David Teague and Willis Teague. [Willis is Edward's oldest son, but not sure who David would be. There is a David Teague in Chatham Co at this time, but he is son of Moses Teague. Does this imply a relationship between Edward and Moses?]
5. Story. 1696 A tradition, contained in "Pioneer Settlers of Alexandria County, NC", was stated by the Rev. Leroy Teague. He received it from Sam Teague and Jim Teague, two very old men living near Love's Creek Baptist Ch outside Siler City [Chatham Co] in 1928. They said that when they were 10 years old they spoke to their 90 year old grandfather, who said his father was one of seven brothers who came directly from England and settled in Orange County. The brothers were Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Elijah, Isaac, William, and Edward.
Edward* married Margaret* McDANIEL, daughter of Family McDANIEL and Unknown, about 1783. (Margaret* McDANIEL was born in 1765 and died in 1820 in Chatham County, North Carolina, United States.)
