     Note: Story told by John Lawrence Teets, 7/1/1972:
When he was a young boy, he was hit on the head by a flying baseball bat which fractured his skull. Dr. R. A. Ravenscroft sat up with him all night. At dawn he pulled the sheet up over the body and told father to go for the undertaker and left. Dad, according to Mother's story, after washing his face, and comforting Lille, (she was losing her third child!), he started to walk to do what had to be done. Mother said, "He had just stepped off the porch when I noticed a movement under the sheet,I called to your father, told him to get Dr. Ravenscroft and hurry!" Of course after being wound up again, we made it! When a Teets and a Friend are crossed, like I was, they become self-winding.

In 1912 he went as a substitute for Ishmael Emmanuel Teets whom he understood was from Preston County, WV, but never found out just who he was. Ordered from Mt. Gretna back into Kanawha County for strike duty, enlisted as of 6/1/1912, age 16-gave the age of 18. He often wondered what became of Ishmael Emmanuel--for whom for a time, he answered, "Here!" when his name was called.

(This case from a letter to John E. Teets from John L. Teets,dated 9/13/1966.)1 When he was a young boy, he was hit on the head by a flying baseball bat which fractured his skull. Dr. R. A. Ravenscroft sat up with him all night. At dawn he pulled the sheet up over John's body and told his father to go for the undertaker and left. John Cleophas, his father, according to Lillie Bell's story, after washing his face, and comforting Lillie (she was losing her third child!), he started to do what had to be done. Lillie said, "he had just stepped off the porch, when I noticed a movement under the sheet! I called to John C, told him to tell Dr. Ravenscroft and to hurry! Of course, after being wound up again, we made it -- when a Teets and a Friend are crossed, like I was, -- they become self-winding."9 John Lawrence "Bugs" Teets was educated in 1921.9 He registered for the WWII Draft on on 27 April 1942 in Cabell, West Virginia.4

Children of Leslie Russell Teets and Josephine Kastovich

     Leslie and Josephine met when they worked together in a movie house in Carnegie. Leslie managed the movie projection and Josephine sold tickets for the show. They dated for about 8 months before they were married. The theater closed for remodelling and they were out of jobs. That's when Josephine decided to get married since Leslie was leaving to look for work. He then opened up a paint store.

After they were married, they stayed briefly with Uncle Ernest in Clariton. They moved to West Newton, Pennsylvania, where Jack and Jimmy were born at home. They moved to Terra Alta and stayed with Leslie's mother Lillie. Patty was born at home in Terra Alta. Uncle Fred's wife, Thema, who was a nurse at a TB Sanitarium, delivered her. Uncle Fred wrote an article about it in the newpaper. Mary Ellen, Barbara and Gloria were all born on a Sunday. Barbara was born in the station wagon of Bill Manning.

During 1945 and 1947, Jack and Jimmy had a newspaper route, which helped to support the family. As the children grew and married, some moved to Michigan while some remained in the Pittsburgh area.10
