Henry Teets

M, b. circa 1810, d. 17 January 1883
RelationshipGrandson of Henry Teets
ChartsHenry Teets, b. b1760 Indented Descendant Chart
     Henry Teets was born circa 1810 in Terra Alta, Preston, Virginia; it is believed that this Henry Teets appeared in the Preston County Tax Records many times from 1847 to 1849 (see the Henry III with the light yellow background in the Teets in Tax Records).

Also, since this Henry Teets was born c1810 (from Findagrave, et al.), and that he appeared in every census between 1840 and 1880, all in Preston County, the evidence indicates that this Henry Teets is the son (or adopted son) of Henry Teets, Jr., and the grandson of the pioneer Henry and Mary Teets.

There are some family stories that indicatee that this Henry Teets was actually a Woods who was orphaned as a small child. His Teets neighbors took him in as one of their own and he ended up taking the Teets name. At least that is the story that was handed down and reported in a letter from Fred's brother John L. Teets back in the 1960's. Uncle John Teets was anewspaper publisher in Richwood W. Va.and after his retirement and the death of his wife Bunny, he spent a lot of his remaining years tracing his ancestory and reporting to us in letters.. Whether he was born a Woods or a Teets appears irrelevant as he clearly adopted the Teets name for life as shown in the records.

If he was in fact a biological Teets (and not a Woods), he would have been born while his father was in jail (for stealing a black horse). If he was a Woods, then he must have been adopted by the Teets family shortly after birth, perhaps while his adopted father was in jail, or thereafter.1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 He was the son of Henry Teets Jr. and Unknown (?) Henry Teets married Elisabeth Benson, daughter of George Benson and Keziah Spurgeon, on 16 November 1831 in Ashes Glades, Fayette, Pennsylvania.9 Henry Teets died on 17 January 1883.2,1 He was buried after 17 January 1883 in Hazleton, Preston, West Virginia.10,2
