     Mary Teets was born circa 1789; it appears that Mary was in the 1800 and 1810 census records with her parents. Mary's death record shows that she was 68 when she died in September 1857 in Preston County. That information leads to a birth date of c1789-1790. 1789 was used, and the birth location remains unknown.1,3 She was the daughter of Henry Teets and Mary (?)1,2 Mary Teets married John Wetzel "Wobby" Wolfe, son of John Jacob "Mountain Man" Wolfe Jr. and Christina Eva "Eve" Wetzel, circa 1813 in Rockingham.1,4,5 Mary Teets died on 7 September 1857 in Crab Orchard, Preston, West Virginia.1,3,6
