Anthony Teets1

M, b. circa 1813, d. February 1880
RelationshipGrandson of Henry Teets
ChartsHenry Teets, b. b1760 Indented Descendant Chart
     Anthony Teets was born circa 1813 in Virginia; at first glance, it appears that this Anthony Teets and a son Daniel Teets, b. 1823, migrated to Barbour County (but not to Upshur). It is described in the "Union and Confederate Soldiers and Sympathizers of Barbour County, West Virginia" (published 2005) that this Daniel Teets "was the son of Anthony Teets, b. Preston County, settled in Barbour County; grandson of Michael Teets, immigrant from Germany, settled Preston County". It is also possible that this parentage was derived from Morton's book, p. 474. This Daniel Teets, b. April 21, 1823, died March 30, 1911, was buried in Mt. Hebron Cemetery in Barbour County (per Findagrave). Per the 1850 census, this Anthony was born c1813.

The author concludes that this Anthony Teets is the son of Michael Teets and a grandson of Henry Teets. Further evidence is being pursued, and credible input from researchers is welcomed.2,3,1 He was the son of Michael Teets and Elizabeth Miller. Anthony Teets married July A. (?) circa 1837.1 Anthony Teets died in February 1880 in Barbour, West Virginia.2,4,5
