     Dice Teets was born on 13 April 1887 in Upshur, West Virginia.1,2,3,4,5,6,7 He was the son of Anthony Lee "Tony" Teets and Laura (Louisa) Alice Cutright.

Mother*Laura (Louisa) Alice Cutright b. 10 Jan 1862, d. 5 Sep 1938
     Dice Teets died when he was only 28 years old. Sondra Jo Teets Trammel tells this story: "my dad (Dennis B. Teets) and my uncle Les (Leslie Teets Jr.) told me that Dice was a big time gambler. He had won a great deal of money, and someone killed him for the money. When they found his body, he had no money. If I remember right, that's what his parents (Anthony "Tony" Teets and Laura Cutright Teets) were told."11 Richard Terrence "Ricky" Teets says that his Dad, Leslie Teets Jr., told him the story that Dice as a young man got on a riverboat somewhere in Ohio, traveled down the Mississippi on the riverboat, probably working his way all the way to New Orleans. He made quite a bit of money working at whatever, then in New Orleans, got into a big poker game. He liked to gamble. Les said that is why he was called "Dice". Possibly no one knew what his given name was. He won a lot of money in the poker game; left and the men from whom he had won the money, jumped him outside; shot him with a 12-guage shotgun (blew him away). They then put him in a box and sent him back to WV on the train. Ricky said his Dad (Les Jr.) had taken him to the Hampton cemetery and Ricky asked about him; saying that sure was a funny name for a man to have.12 He appeared on the 1900 Federal Census of Buckhannon, Upshur, West Virginia, in the household of his parents, Anthony Lee "Tony" Teets and Laura (Louisa) Alice Cutright.6
