    David2 Teets (Edward1) son of Edward and Phoebe (Terry) Teets of Schoharie County, NY
    David was born in Summit, Schoharie County, New York on March 10, 1823 and died December 31, 1890 in New York City, N.Y. He was almost 68 years old. He married Caroline Moor, who was born February 22, 1826 in New York City, New York, the daughter of James and Eliza Moor.
    In 1840 he was living in New York City. David and his brother, Benjamin lived in New York City at 462 Washington, in 1845 . Their place of business was at 226 Canal Street, and they were listed individually and also as "Teets, B&D, Tinsmith, 226 Canal" in the city directory. Their brother, Philip, was a stove manufacturer at 292 Greenwich, beginning in 1842. In 1846, David moved his business to 296 Greenwich, only 2 doors away from his brother, Philip. David then moved his home to 192 Reade, which was near his brother, Philip, who lived at 162 Reade. In 1847, David listed his business at 226 Canal Street again, and Benjamin was listed as "late tinsmith"; since Benjamin was still alive, David evidently wanted to keep Benjamin's' name in the business. David was living at this time at 48 Harrison. The following year, 1848, David listed his business and home addresses both as 226 Canal Street. In 1849 Benjamin, Tinman, was listed at 291 W 20th, and David, tinsmith, at 54 Harrison. David's address was the same for the next two years.
    The 1850 Census on September 4th, has David and Caroline living in the 5th ward of New York City (The name looks like Steets, instread of Teets. This is why I could not find it in the last five years). David was 27 and Caroline was 24. David was a Tin Smith. Caroline’s mother, Elisa Moore, age 48, who was born in NY in 1802, was living with them. Caroline’s brother, Barney, age 17, was a Tin Smith and was born in NY. Caroline’s brother, Charles was 20 years old, and he was born in Canada? John Terry was 25, and was a clerk. There was 11 other people living with them, between the ages of 16 to 27 and 3 of them were Tin Smiths. None of these 11 people seem to have been related to them. One of their neighbors was listed as a plumber. Since Eliza Moore was living with her daughter, Caroline, I am assuming that her father, James Moore was dead by that time. [For more on the Moores, see chapter 53].
    In 1859 David was listed as a plumber at 5 B'way, living at 141 W 40th, and his wife Caroline had her own business and was listed as "fruits, 210 Wash, mkt h W 40th". There was also a listing for "D & S plumbers 5 W B’way". (This is David and Steven).
    In 1860, Abraham, tinman, h 239 W 34th, George, stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, Philip, tinware, 808 G’wich h 199 W 34th, Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton St h 49 Charlton, G & S stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, Stephen, stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, C. & Redmond, fruits 210 Wash mkt" were listed. There were plenty of family in the area. (Source; City Directory).
    On June 9, 1860, David was living with his wife, Caroline and their children in New York City, and his occupation was "Master Plumber". The value of his real estate was $4,050 and the value of his personal estate was $2,000. David was 37 years old and Caroline was 35 years old. Living with them were their children: Mary, age 13; David, age 11; Charlie, age 8; Anna, age 5. Also living with them were: Charlot Conalim, age 30, a domestic; Charles Moor, age 29, a bookkeeper and perhaps a younger brother of Carolines'; and D. H. Provost, age 17, who was possibly David's sister Martha's son, who was an apprentice to plumbing.
    An article in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle on Feb. 19, 1861 on the Kings County Fire Insurance Company of the City of Brooklyn, L.I. identified Ralph Teets, Stephen H Provost and Andrew J Provost as directors.
    In 1862, the listings were (all Teets) ", David, smith 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; Abraham, smith h 254 W 34th; George, stoves, 477 8th av Melrose; Philip, stoves, 312 & 394 G’wich h 199 W 34th; Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton h 205 W 27th; Stephen, smith h 185 W 39th; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors 62 Fulton st". David and Stepher were both listed as "smiths". Tinsmithing and stoves were beginning to merge as plumbing. Steven lived on the very next street to David.
    In 1863 the listings for Teets were " C poultry 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; George, stoves, 477 8th av h 106 W 36th; Philip, stoves, 310 & 394 G’wich h 199 W 34th; Ralph, clothing 62 Fulton h 205 W 27th; Stephen, stoves, 617 8th av; C. & Redmond, poultry 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, clothing, 62 Fulton". Caroline Teets was now into poultry and she had moved across the street.
    In 1864 the listings for Teets were "Caroline, fruit, 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; George W, h furnishing, 477 8th av h 106 W 36th; Philip, stoves 394 G’wich, h 199 W 34th; Ralph, tailor 62 Fulton h 265 W 23th; Stephen, stoves, 617 8th av; Thomas, laborer, h 141 Hammond; C & Redmond, fruits 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors, 62 Fulton".
    In 1865 the listings were "David, plumber, 24 W B’way, h 171 W 40th; George W, stoves, 477 Eighth av; Philip, h W 125th n Seventh av; Ralph, clothing, 62 Fulton h 265 W 23th; Stephen, stoves,, 645 Eighth av; Teets & Throckmorton, clothing, 62 Fulton".
    In 1866 the listings were "Caroline, fruit, 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber, 24 W B’way, h 171 W 40th; George W, stoves, 477 Eighth av; Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton, h 255 W 23d; Stephen, plumber, 545 Eighth av; C. & Redmond, fruits, 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors, 62 Fulton".
    On March 22, 1866, David was identified in a newspaper article announcing the marriage of his daughter, Mary J., as “Esq.” which seems to indicate that he was a lawyer!
    A newspaper clipping from Centralla, Ill. April 19, 1906, said that :"Mr.. Teets (Benjamin) has always claimed that it was he who assisted Samuel B. Morse, the inventor of the telegraph, in perfecting his instruments and soldered the wires together to make the first trial." Since David and Benjamin were in business together, perhaps David Teets also worked on Samuel B. Morse's telegraph.
    An article in the Philadelphia Inquirer on January 28, 2007, described the living conditions it the tenements in New York City:
         At No. 97, Orchard Street you’ll find the Tenement Museum, rising high and narrow above the cobblestone street. The immigrants came here from places as diverse as Ireland, Italy and other parts of Western Europe, Russia, the Ottoman Empire, and Lithuania. The American garment industry began here. The Tenement Museum interior re-creates the spare apartments of the residents who lived in harsh, Dickensian circumstances. The original buildings had no heat, light or running water, and few windows until the late 1860s, when the state enacted laws that forced landlords to improve living conditions. The residents eked out livings in the clothing business, found odd jobs, became cobblers, and pushed vegetable carts.
    On June 25, the 1870 Census list David Teets, age 47, a plumber; his wife, Clara (?), age 43, keeping house; Charles, age 18, a plumber; Ann, age 15; Sylvanus, age 8; and Samuel, age 6; living in New York City. David had real estate worth $20,000, and personal property worth $3,000.
    In 1880 David listed his occupation as House Furnishing and Plumbing in the US Census. He and Caroline lived at 367 West 31st Street, in Manhattan, New York. David was 57 and Caroline was 54. Their son, Chas was 28, Chas' wife Annie I was 21, & he was employed in same business as his Dad. Living with them were their daughter, Annie E. (born 1859), and their sons, Sylvanus G. (born 1862), and Samul A. (born 1864). Living with them as boarders were: J.T Hilderbrant, a widow, age 25 who was a Street Sprinkler; Angel Olesegrate, age 18, a machinist; John King, age 28, a bookeeper; Piere Betts, age 23, a clerk; Geo Graham, age 50, worked at custom house; Thos, age 50, no employment; and Lizzie McIntoshe, age 45, employed by the Teets as a domestic servant.
    On the 1st day of June, the 1880 Census for Coeymans, Albany County, New York has Abm. Teets, age 65, and his wife, Abby, age 68, living with other family members. There was no house nomber or street name on the census. Under the heading, “health”, Abby had “kidney” written. Abm. was a farmer whos mother was born in Rhode Island.
    Caroline died at 10 P.M. on July 6, 1890 of Cerebral Apoplexy and Cerebral Softening, which she had had 2 years and 1 year respectively. The attending doctor was Dr. J. F. Gray. She had lived her whole life in New York City, and died at 332 W 31st Street, (a private house), where she had lived . On July 8, 1890, the following obituary was published in the New York Times;
    Teets - On Sunday, July 6, CAROLINE, wife of David Teets, aged 64 years.
    Friends and relatives are invited to attend the funeral services at her late residence, 332      West 31st St., on Tuesday afternoon, at 4 o’clock.
    She was buried on July 9, 1890 in Woodlawn Cemetery, the Bronx, and S.M. Hook             710 8th Avenue) was the undertaker.
    When David died December 31, 1890 his occupation was stove dealer, he had lived 50 years in the city, and he had died at 92 West 89th Street on the 3rd floor. He died of cancer of the stomach. The attending doctor was Dr. J. B. Columbia. He was buried on January 3, 1891 in Woodlawn Cemetery, the Bronx, and S.M. Hook (710 8th Avenue) was the undertaker.

    Children born to David and Caroline, in New York, N.Y.:
         i.     Mary Jane, b. Aug. 16, 1847, married March 14, 1866, Charles Simeon Andrews.            On Thursday, Nov. 10, 1867, a funeral was held for their son Charles Teets                 Andrews, aged 4 months and 25 days, “at 1:30 P.

The original buildings had no heat, light or running water, and few windows until the late 1860s, when the state enacted laws that forced landlords to improve living conditions. The residents eked out livings in the clothing business, found odd jobs, became cobblers, and pushed vegetable carts.
    On June 25, the 1870 Census list David Teets, age 47, a plumber; his wife, Clara (?), age 43, keeping house; Charles, age 18, a plumber; Ann, age 15; Sylvanus, age 8; and Samuel, age 6; living in New York City. David had real estate worth $20,000, and personal property worth $3,000.
    In 1880 David listed his occupation as House Furnishing and Plumbing in the US Census. He and Caroline lived at 367 West 31st Street, in Manhattan, New York. David was 57 and Caroline was 54. Their son, Chas was 28, Chas' wife Annie I was 21, & he was employed in same business as his Dad. Living with them were their daughter, Annie E. (born 1859), and their sons, Sylvanus G. (born 1862), and Samul A. (born 1864). Living with them as boarders were: J.T Hilderbrant, a widow, age 25 who was a Street Sprinkler; Angel Olesegrate, age 18, a machinist; John King, age 28, a bookeeper; Piere Betts, age 23, a clerk; Geo Graham, age 50, worked at custom house; Thos, age 50, no employment; and Lizzie McIntoshe, age 45, employed by the Teets as a domestic servant.
    On the 1st day of June, the 1880 Census for Coeymans, Albany County, New York has Abm. Teets, age 65, and his wife, Abby, age 68, living with other family members. There was no house nomber or street name on the census. Under the heading, “health”, Abby had “kidney” written. Abm. was a farmer whos mother was born in Rhode Island.
    Caroline died at 10 P.M. on July 6, 1890 of Cerebral Apoplexy and Cerebral Softening, which she had had 2 years and 1 year respectively. The attending doctor was Dr. J. F. Gray. She had lived her whole life in New York City, and died at 332 W 31st Street, (a private house), where she had lived . On July 8, 1890, the following obituary was published in the New York Times;
    Teets - On Sunday, July 6, CAROLINE, wife of David Teets, aged 64 years.

    David2 Teets (Edward1) son of Edward and Phoebe (Terry) Teets of Schoharie County, NY
    David was born in Summit, Schoharie County, New York on March 10, 1823 and died December 31, 1890 in New York City, N.Y. He was almost 68 years old. He married Caroline Moor, who was born February 22, 1826 in New York City, New York, the daughter of James and Eliza Moor.
    In 1840 he was living in New York City. David and his brother, Benjamin lived in New York City at 462 Washington, in 1845 . Their place of business was at 226 Canal Street, and they were listed individually and also as "Teets, B&D, Tinsmith, 226 Canal" in the city directory. Their brother, Philip, was a stove manufacturer at 292 Greenwich, beginning in 1842. In 1846, David moved his business to 296 Greenwich, only 2 doors away from his brother, Philip. David then moved his home to 192 Reade, which was near his brother, Philip, who lived at 162 Reade. In 1847, David listed his business at 226 Canal Street again, and Benjamin was listed as "late tinsmith"; since Benjamin was still alive, David evidently wanted to keep Benjamin's' name in the business. David was living at this time at 48 Harrison. The following year, 1848, David listed his business and home addresses both as 226 Canal Street. In 1849 Benjamin, Tinman, was listed at 291 W 20th, and David, tinsmith, at 54 Harrison. David's address was the same for the next two years.
    The 1850 Census on September 4th, has David and Caroline living in the 5th ward of New York City (The name looks like Steets, instread of Teets. This is why I could not find it in the last five years). David was 27 and Caroline was 24. David was a Tin Smith. Caroline’s mother, Elisa Moore, age 48, who was born in NY in 1802, was living with them. Caroline’s brother, Barney, age 17, was a Tin Smith and was born in NY. Caroline’s brother, Charles was 20 years old, and he was born in Canada? John Terry was 25, and was a clerk. There was 11 other people living with them, between the ages of 16 to 27 and 3 of them were Tin Smiths. None of these 11 people seem to have been related to them. One of their neighbors was listed as a plumber. Since Eliza Moore was living with her daughter, Caroline, I am assuming that her father, James Moore was dead by that time. [For more on the Moores, see chapter 53].
    In 1859 David was listed as a plumber at 5 B'way, living at 141 W 40th, and his wife Caroline had her own business and was listed as "fruits, 210 Wash, mkt h W 40th". There was also a listing for "D & S plumbers 5 W B’way". (This is David and Steven).
    In 1860, Abraham, tinman, h 239 W 34th, George, stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, Philip, tinware, 808 G’wich h 199 W 34th, Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton St h 49 Charlton, G & S stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, Stephen, stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, C. & Redmond, fruits 210 Wash mkt" were listed. There were plenty of family in the area. (Source; City Directory).
    On June 9, 1860, David was living with his wife, Caroline and their children in New York City, and his occupation was "Master Plumber". The value of his real estate was $4,050 and the value of his personal estate was $2,000. David was 37 years old and Caroline was 35 years old. Living with them were their children: Mary, age 13; David, age 11; Charlie, age 8; Anna, age 5. Also living with them were: Charlot Conalim, age 30, a domestic; Charles Moor, age 29, a bookkeeper and perhaps a younger brother of Carolines'; and D. H. Provost, age 17, who was possibly David's sister Martha's son, who was an apprentice to plumbing.
    An article in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle on Feb. 19, 1861 on the Kings County Fire Insurance Company of the City of Brooklyn, L.I. identified Ralph Teets, Stephen H Provost and Andrew J Provost as directors.
    In 1862, the listings were (all Teets) ", David, smith 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; Abraham, smith h 254 W 34th; George, stoves, 477 8th av Melrose; Philip, stoves, 312 & 394 G’wich h 199 W 34th; Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton h 205 W 27th; Stephen, smith h 185 W 39th; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors 62 Fulton st". David and Stepher were both listed as "smiths". Tinsmithing and stoves were beginning to merge as plumbing. Steven lived on the very next street to David.
    In 1863 the listings for Teets were " C poultry 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; George, stoves, 477 8th av h 106 W 36th; Philip, stoves, 310 & 394 G’wich h 199 W 34th; Ralph, clothing 62 Fulton h 205 W 27th; Stephen, stoves, 617 8th av; C. & Redmond, poultry 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, clothing, 62 Fulton". Caroline Teets was now into poultry and she had moved across the street.
    In 1864 the listings for Teets were "Caroline, fruit, 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; George W, h furnishing, 477 8th av h 106 W 36th; Philip, stoves 394 G’wich, h 199 W 34th; Ralph, tailor 62 Fulton h 265 W 23th; Stephen, stoves, 617 8th av; Thomas, laborer, h 141 Hammond; C & Redmond, fruits 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors, 62 Fulton".
    In 1865 the listings were "David, plumber, 24 W B’way, h 171 W 40th; George W, stoves, 477 Eighth av; Philip, h W 125th n Seventh av; Ralph, clothing, 62 Fulton h 265 W 23th; Stephen, stoves,, 645 Eighth av; Teets & Throckmorton, clothing, 62 Fulton".
    In 1866 the listings were "Caroline, fruit, 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber, 24 W B’way, h 171 W 40th; George W, stoves, 477 Eighth av; Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton, h 255 W 23d; Stephen, plumber, 545 Eighth av; C. & Redmond, fruits, 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors, 62 Fulton".
    On March 22, 1866, David was identified in a newspaper article announcing the marriage of his daughter, Mary J., as “Esq.” which seems to indicate that he was a lawyer!
    A newspaper clipping from Centralla, Ill. April 19, 1906, said that :"Mr.. Teets (Benjamin) has always claimed that it was he who assisted Samuel B. Morse, the inventor of the telegraph, in perfecting his instruments and soldered the wires together to make the first trial." Since David and Benjamin were in business together, perhaps David Teets also worked on Samuel B. Morse's telegraph.
    An article in the Philadelphia Inquirer on January 28, 2007, described the living conditions it the tenements in New York City:
         At No. 97, Orchard Street you’ll find the Tenement Museum, rising high and narrow above the cobblestone street. The immigrants came here from places as diverse as Ireland, Italy and other parts of Western Europe, Russia, the Ottoman Empire, and Lithuania. The American garment industry began here. The Tenement Museum interior re-creates the spare apartments of the residents who lived in harsh, Dickensian circumstances. The original buildings had no heat, light or running water, and few windows until the late 1860s, when the state enacted laws that forced landlords to improve living conditions. The residents eked out livings in the clothing business, found odd jobs, became cobblers, and pushed vegetable carts.
    On June 25, the 1870 Census list David Teets, age 47, a plumber; his wife, Clara (?), age 43, keeping house; Charles, age 18, a plumber; Ann, age 15; Sylvanus, age 8; and Samuel, age 6; living in New York City. David had real estate worth $20,000, and personal property worth $3,000.
    In 1880 David listed his occupation as House Furnishing and Plumbing in the US Census. He and Caroline lived at 367 West 31st Street, in Manhattan, New York. David was 57 and Caroline was 54. Their son, Chas was 28, Chas' wife Annie I was 21, & he was employed in same business as his Dad. Living with them were their daughter, Annie E. (born 1859), and their sons, Sylvanus G. (born 1862), and Samul A. (born 1864). Living with them as boarders were: J.T Hilderbrant, a widow, age 25 who was a Street Sprinkler; Angel Olesegrate, age 18, a machinist; John King, age 28, a bookeeper; Piere Betts, age 23, a clerk; Geo Graham, age 50, worked at custom house; Thos, age 50, no employment; and Lizzie McIntoshe, age 45, employed by the Teets as a domestic servant.
    On the 1st day of June, the 1880 Census for Coeymans, Albany County, New York has Abm. Teets, age 65, and his wife, Abby, age 68, living with other family members. There was no house nomber or street name on the census. Under the heading, “health”, Abby had “kidney” written. Abm. was a farmer whos mother was born in Rhode Island.
    Caroline died at 10 P.M. on July 6, 1890 of Cerebral Apoplexy and Cerebral Softening, which she had had 2 years and 1 year respectively. The attending doctor was Dr. J. F. Gray. She had lived her whole life in New York City, and died at 332 W 31st Street, (a private house), where she had lived . On July 8, 1890, the following obituary was published in the New York Times;
    Teets - On Sunday, July 6, CAROLINE, wife of David Teets, aged 64 years.

    In 1864 the listings for Teets were "Caroline, fruit, 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; George W, h furnishing, 477 8th av h 106 W 36th; Philip, stoves 394 G’wich, h 199 W 34th; Ralph, tailor 62 Fulton h 265 W 23th; Stephen, stoves, 617 8th av; Thomas, laborer, h 141 Hammond; C & Redmond, fruits 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors, 62 Fulton".

    On March 22, 1866, David was identified in a newspaper article announcing the marriage of his daughter, Mary J., as “Esq.” which seems to indicate that he was a lawyer!
    A newspaper clipping from Centralla, Ill. April 19, 1906, said that :"Mr.. Teets (Benjamin) has always claimed that it was he who assisted Samuel B. Morse, the inventor of the telegraph, in perfecting his instruments and soldered the wires together to make the first trial." Since David and Benjamin were in business together, perhaps David Teets also worked on Samuel B. Morse's telegraph.
    An article in the Philadelphia Inquirer on January 28, 2007, described the living conditions it the tenements in New York City:
         At No. 97, Orchard Street you’ll find the Tenement Museum, rising high and narrow above the cobblestone street. The immigrants came here from places as diverse as Ireland, Italy and other parts of Western Europe, Russia, the Ottoman Empire, and Lithuania. The American garment industry began here. The Tenement Museum interior re-creates the spare apartments of the residents who lived in harsh, Dickensian circumstances. The original buildings had no heat, light or running water, and few windows until the late 1860s, when the state enacted laws that forced landlords to improve living conditions. The residents eked out livings in the clothing business, found odd jobs, became cobblers, and pushed vegetable carts.
    On June 25, the 1870 Census list David Teets, age 47, a plumber; his wife, Clara (?), age 43, keeping house; Charles, age 18, a plumber; Ann, age 15; Sylvanus, age 8; and Samuel, age 6; living in New York City. David had real estate worth $20,000, and personal property worth $3,000.
    In 1880 David listed his occupation as House Furnishing and Plumbing in the US Census. He and Caroline lived at 367 West 31st Street, in Manhattan, New York. David was 57 and Caroline was 54. Their son, Chas was 28, Chas' wife Annie I was 21, & he was employed in same business as his Dad. Living with them were their daughter, Annie E. (born 1859), and their sons, Sylvanus G. (born 1862), and Samul A. (born 1864). Living with them as boarders were: J.T Hilderbrant, a widow, age 25 who was a Street Sprinkler; Angel Olesegrate, age 18, a machinist; John King, age 28, a bookeeper; Piere Betts, age 23, a clerk; Geo Graham, age 50, worked at custom house; Thos, age 50, no employment; and Lizzie McIntoshe, age 45, employed by the Teets as a domestic servant.
    On the 1st day of June, the 1880 Census for Coeymans, Albany County, New York has Abm. Teets, age 65, and his wife, Abby, age 68, living with other family members. There was no house nomber or street name on the census. Under the heading, “health”, Abby had “kidney” written. Abm. was a farmer whos mother was born in Rhode Island.
    Caroline died at 10 P.M. on July 6, 1890 of Cerebral Apoplexy and Cerebral Softening, which she had had 2 years and 1 year respectively. The attending doctor was Dr. J. F. Gray. She had lived her whole life in New York City, and died at 332 W 31st Street, (a private house), where she had lived . On July 8, 1890, the following obituary was published in the New York Times;
    Teets - On Sunday, July 6, CAROLINE, wife of David Teets, aged 64 years.
    Friends and relatives are invited to attend the funeral services at her late residence, 332      West 31st St., on Tuesday afternoon, at 4 o’clock.

    David2 Teets (Edward1) son of Edward and Phoebe (Terry) Teets of Schoharie County, NY
    David was born in Summit, Schoharie County, New York on March 10, 1823 and died December 31, 1890 in New York City, N.Y. He was almost 68 years old. He married Caroline Moor, who was born February 22, 1826 in New York City, New York, the daughter of James and Eliza Moor.
    In 1840 he was living in New York City. David and his brother, Benjamin lived in New York City at 462 Washington, in 1845 . Their place of business was at 226 Canal Street, and they were listed individually and also as "Teets, B&D, Tinsmith, 226 Canal" in the city directory. Their brother, Philip, was a stove manufacturer at 292 Greenwich, beginning in 1842. In 1846, David moved his business to 296 Greenwich, only 2 doors away from his brother, Philip. David then moved his home to 192 Reade, which was near his brother, Philip, who lived at 162 Reade. In 1847, David listed his business at 226 Canal Street again, and Benjamin was listed as "late tinsmith"; since Benjamin was still alive, David evidently wanted to keep Benjamin's' name in the business. David was living at this time at 48 Harrison. The following year, 1848, David listed his business and home addresses both as 226 Canal Street. In 1849 Benjamin, Tinman, was listed at 291 W 20th, and David, tinsmith, at 54 Harrison. David's address was the same for the next two years.
    The 1850 Census on September 4th, has David and Caroline living in the 5th ward of New York City (The name looks like Steets, instread of Teets. This is why I could not find it in the last five years). David was 27 and Caroline was 24. David was a Tin Smith. Caroline’s mother, Elisa Moore, age 48, who was born in NY in 1802, was living with them. Caroline’s brother, Barney, age 17, was a Tin Smith and was born in NY. Caroline’s brother, Charles was 20 years old, and he was born in Canada? John Terry was 25, and was a clerk. There was 11 other people living with them, between the ages of 16 to 27 and 3 of them were Tin Smiths. None of these 11 people seem to have been related to them. One of their neighbors was listed as a plumber. Since Eliza Moore was living with her daughter, Caroline, I am assuming that her father, James Moore was dead by that time. [For more on the Moores, see chapter 53].
    In 1859 David was listed as a plumber at 5 B'way, living at 141 W 40th, and his wife Caroline had her own business and was listed as "fruits, 210 Wash, mkt h W 40th". There was also a listing for "D & S plumbers 5 W B’way". (This is David and Steven).
    In 1860, Abraham, tinman, h 239 W 34th, George, stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, Philip, tinware, 808 G’wich h 199 W 34th, Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton St h 49 Charlton, G & S stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, Stephen, stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, C. & Redmond, fruits 210 Wash mkt" were listed. There were plenty of family in the area. (Source; City Directory).
    On June 9, 1860, David was living with his wife, Caroline and their children in New York City, and his occupation was "Master Plumber". The value of his real estate was $4,050 and the value of his personal estate was $2,000. David was 37 years old and Caroline was 35 years old. Living with them were their children: Mary, age 13; David, age 11; Charlie, age 8; Anna, age 5. Also living with them were: Charlot Conalim, age 30, a domestic; Charles Moor, age 29, a bookkeeper and perhaps a younger brother of Carolines'; and D. H. Provost, age 17, who was possibly David's sister Martha's son, who was an apprentice to plumbing.
    An article in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle on Feb. 19, 1861 on the Kings County Fire Insurance Company of the City of Brooklyn, L.I. identified Ralph Teets, Stephen H Provost and Andrew J Provost as directors.
    In 1862, the listings were (all Teets) ", David, smith 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; Abraham, smith h 254 W 34th; George, stoves, 477 8th av Melrose; Philip, stoves, 312 & 394 G’wich h 199 W 34th; Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton h 205 W 27th; Stephen, smith h 185 W 39th; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors 62 Fulton st". David and Stepher were both listed as "smiths". Tinsmithing and stoves were beginning to merge as plumbing. Steven lived on the very next street to David.
    In 1863 the listings for Teets were " C poultry 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; George, stoves, 477 8th av h 106 W 36th; Philip, stoves, 310 & 394 G’wich h 199 W 34th; Ralph, clothing 62 Fulton h 205 W 27th; Stephen, stoves, 617 8th av; C. & Redmond, poultry 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, clothing, 62 Fulton".

    In 1866 the listings were "Caroline, fruit, 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber, 24 W B’way, h 171 W 40th; George W, stoves, 477 Eighth av; Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton, h 255 W 23d; Stephen, plumber, 545 Eighth av; C. & Redmond, fruits, 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors, 62 Fulton".
    On March 22, 1866, David was identified in a newspaper article announcing the marriage of his daughter, Mary J., as “Esq.” which seems to indicate that he was a lawyer!
    A newspaper clipping from Centralla, Ill. April 19, 1906, said that :"Mr.. Teets (Benjamin) has always claimed that it was he who assisted Samuel B. Morse, the inventor of the telegraph, in perfecting his instruments and soldered the wires together to make the first trial." Since David and Benjamin were in business together, perhaps David Teets also worked on Samuel B. Morse's telegraph.
    An article in the Philadelphia Inquirer on January 28, 2007, described the living conditions it the tenements in New York City:
         At No. 97, Orchard Street you’ll find the Tenement Museum, rising high and narrow above the cobblestone street. The immigrants came here from places as diverse as Ireland, Italy and other parts of Western Europe, Russia, the Ottoman Empire, and Lithuania. The American garment industry began here. The Tenement Museum interior re-creates the spare apartments of the residents who lived in harsh, Dickensian circumstances. The original buildings had no heat, light or running water, and few windows until the late 1860s, when the state enacted laws that forced landlords to improve living conditions. The residents eked out livings in the clothing business, found odd jobs, became cobblers, and pushed vegetable carts.
    On June 25, the 1870 Census list David Teets, age 47, a plumber; his wife, Clara (?), age 43, keeping house; Charles, age 18, a plumber; Ann, age 15; Sylvanus, age 8; and Samuel, age 6; living in New York City. David had real estate worth $20,000, and personal property worth $3,000.
    In 1880 David listed his occupation as House Furnishing and Plumbing in the US Census. He and Caroline lived at 367 West 31st Street, in Manhattan, New York. David was 57 and Caroline was 54. Their son, Chas was 28, Chas' wife Annie I was 21, & he was employed in same business as his Dad. Living with them were their daughter, Annie E. (born 1859), and their sons, Sylvanus G. (born 1862), and Samul A. (born 1864). Living with them as boarders were: J.T Hilderbrant, a widow, age 25 who was a Street Sprinkler; Angel Olesegrate, age 18, a machinist; John King, age 28, a bookeeper; Piere Betts, age 23, a clerk; Geo Graham, age 50, worked at custom house; Thos, age 50, no employment; and Lizzie McIntoshe, age 45, employed by the Teets as a domestic servant.
    On the 1st day of June, the 1880 Census for Coeymans, Albany County, New York has Abm. Teets, age 65, and his wife, Abby, age 68, living with other family members. There was no house nomber or street name on the census. Under the heading, “health”, Abby had “kidney” written. Abm. was a farmer whos mother was born in Rhode Island.
    Caroline died at 10 P.M. on July 6, 1890 of Cerebral Apoplexy and Cerebral Softening, which she had had 2 years and 1 year respectively. The attending doctor was Dr. J. F. Gray. She had lived her whole life in New York City, and died at 332 W 31st Street, (a private house), where she had lived . On July 8, 1890, the following obituary was published in the New York Times;
    Teets - On Sunday, July 6, CAROLINE, wife of David Teets, aged 64 years.
    Friends and relatives are invited to attend the funeral services at her late residence, 332      West 31st St., on Tuesday afternoon, at 4 o’clock.
    She was buried on July 9, 1890 in Woodlawn Cemetery, the Bronx, and S.M. Hook             710 8th Avenue) was the undertaker.
    When David died December 31, 1890 his occupation was stove dealer, he had lived 50 years in the city, and he had died at 92 West 89th Street on the 3rd floor. He died of cancer of the stomach. The attending doctor was Dr. J. B. Columbia. He was buried on January 3, 1891 in Woodlawn Cemetery, the Bronx, and S.M. Hook (710 8th Avenue) was the undertaker.

    was apparently made up in the 1950s as the last burial date noted was 1952. If someone
    you are looking for is not on this list, they could still be buried in the cemetery either
    after the list was compiled or without a tombstone.

  9. [S2099] Obit: Edward Teats, Mount Clemens Monitor Leader - Jan. 11, 1907
    Several times during the past few weeks mention has been made of the serious illness of Mr. Edward Teats, one of Macomb county's sturdy pioneers. In sad postscript to these paragraphs comes the announcement of his death on the evening of Jan. 2, aged 79 years. Mr. Teats was born in Dutchess Co., N.Y., in 1829. He removed with his grandparents to Michigan when thirteen years old, locating in Harrison township, this county. The story of his boyhood is much the same as that of other boys of that period, but by the time he arrived at manhood and married Miss Harriet Rackham (daughter of Simon Rackham of All Saints, Sussex Co., England) in Mt. Clemens in 1850, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. Geo. W. Newcomb, pastor of the Presbyterian church, his magnetic personality and sterling qualities had so endeared him to the hearts of his fellowmen that he was urged to accept generalship in municipal affairs. Political honors came to him repeatedly. Year after year he represented his constituency in affairs of state and history making. In business life he ever exhibited that integrity and uprightness which always bring success, he thus comparatively early in life securing a competency. But it was in domestic life that honors him greatest, because of his untiring efforts to "make childhood sweet" and his motto, "If you have a friend worth loving, love him; yes, and let him know you love him, ere life's evening tinge his brow with sunset glow." Why should good words ne'er be said of a friend--till he is dead? He loved him home, he loved his fellowman. Mr. Teats united with the Presbyterian church in 1860, (was an elder for many years) and remained in that faith until he passed beyond to enjoy with unclouded brightness the sunshine of that better land. He resided on his farm in Harrison township until 1896 when he sold the place to William Cole and came to make his home with his daughter Grace, in this city. Few men of his day and denomination have been more popular and few will be lamented more. His funeral was held from his late home with Rev. Kennedy in charge of the services who paid eloquent tribute to the memory of his co-laborer. Nine children remain to mourn his loss: Mrs. Chas. Fries, of Utica, Mrs. Henry Generecuix, of Saginaw, Mrs. Thomas Houghton, of Erin, Arthur Teats, of Harrison, Mrs. Chas. Fields of Hamtramck, Mrs. Robert Fox, of Clinton, Mrs. Anson Harris, of Hamtramck, Mrs. Allen Houghton, of Croswell, and Mrs. Jos. M. Danby, of this city. There are 29 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren, also one sister, Mrs. Alice Campau of this city, and two brothers, Jacob Teats, of Kansas, and Philip Teats, of Montana.

    Glad to hear from you. I hope we can find they are the same person. I am sending you all the info I have on David Teets, my ggg grandfather. The next e-mail will be for my gg grandfather, David Teets.

    Bob Currier

    David2 Teets (Edward1) son of Edward and Phoebe (Terry) Teets of Schoharie County, NY
    David was born in Summit, Schoharie County, New York on March 10, 1823 and died December 31, 1890 in New York City, N.Y. He was almost 68 years old. He married Caroline Moor, who was born February 22, 1826 in New York City, New York, the daughter of James and Eliza Moor.
    In 1840 he was living in New York City. David and his brother, Benjamin lived in New York City at 462 Washington, in 1845 . Their place of business was at 226 Canal Street, and they were listed individually and also as "Teets, B&D, Tinsmith, 226 Canal" in the city directory. Their brother, Philip, was a stove manufacturer at 292 Greenwich, beginning in 1842. In 1846, David moved his business to 296 Greenwich, only 2 doors away from his brother, Philip. David then moved his home to 192 Reade, which was near his brother, Philip, who lived at 162 Reade. In 1847, David listed his business at 226 Canal Street again, and Benjamin was listed as "late tinsmith"; since Benjamin was still alive, David evidently wanted to keep Benjamin's' name in the business. David was living at this time at 48 Harrison. The following year, 1848, David listed his business and home addresses both as 226 Canal Street. In 1849 Benjamin, Tinman, was listed at 291 W 20th, and David, tinsmith, at 54 Harrison. David's address was the same for the next two years.
    The 1850 Census on September 4th, has David and Caroline living in the 5th ward of New York City (The name looks like Steets, instread of Teets. This is why I could not find it in the last five years). David was 27 and Caroline was 24. David was a Tin Smith. Caroline’s mother, Elisa Moore, age 48, who was born in NY in 1802, was living with them. Caroline’s brother, Barney, age 17, was a Tin Smith and was born in NY. Caroline’s brother, Charles was 20 years old, and he was born in Canada? John Terry was 25, and was a clerk. There was 11 other people living with them, between the ages of 16 to 27 and 3 of them were Tin Smiths. None of these 11 people seem to have been related to them. One of their neighbors was listed as a plumber. Since Eliza Moore was living with her daughter, Caroline, I am assuming that her father, James Moore was dead by that time. [For more on the Moores, see chapter 53].
    In 1859 David was listed as a plumber at 5 B'way, living at 141 W 40th, and his wife Caroline had her own business and was listed as "fruits, 210 Wash, mkt h W 40th". There was also a listing for "D & S plumbers 5 W B’way". (This is David and Steven).
    In 1860, Abraham, tinman, h 239 W 34th, George, stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, Philip, tinware, 808 G’wich h 199 W 34th, Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton St h 49 Charlton, G & S stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, Stephen, stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, C. & Redmond, fruits 210 Wash mkt" were listed. There were plenty of family in the area. (Source; City Directory).
    On June 9, 1860, David was living with his wife, Caroline and their children in New York City, and his occupation was "Master Plumber". The value of his real estate was $4,050 and the value of his personal estate was $2,000. David was 37 years old and Caroline was 35 years old. Living with them were their children: Mary, age 13; David, age 11; Charlie, age 8; Anna, age 5. Also living with them were: Charlot Conalim, age 30, a domestic; Charles Moor, age 29, a bookkeeper and perhaps a younger brother of Carolines'; and D. H. Provost, age 17, who was possibly David's sister Martha's son, who was an apprentice to plumbing.
    An article in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle on Feb. 19, 1861 on the Kings County Fire Insurance Company of the City of Brooklyn, L.I. identified Ralph Teets, Stephen H Provost and Andrew J Provost as directors.
    In 1862, the listings were (all Teets) ", David, smith 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; Abraham, smith h 254 W 34th; George, stoves, 477 8th av Melrose; Philip, stoves, 312 & 394 G’wich h 199 W 34th; Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton h 205 W 27th; Stephen, smith h 185 W 39th; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors 62 Fulton st". David and Stepher were both listed as "smiths". Tinsmithing and stoves were beginning to merge as plumbing. Steven lived on the very next street to David.
    In 1863 the listings for Teets were " C poultry 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; George, stoves, 477 8th av h 106 W 36th; Philip, stoves, 310 & 394 G’wich h 199 W 34th; Ralph, clothing 62 Fulton h 205 W 27th; Stephen, stoves, 617 8th av; C. & Redmond, poultry 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, clothing, 62 Fulton". Caroline Teets was now into poultry and she had moved across the street.
    In 1864 the listings for Teets were "Caroline, fruit, 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; George W, h furnishing, 477 8th av h 106 W 36th; Philip, stoves 394 G’wich, h 199 W 34th; Ralph, tailor 62 Fulton h 265 W 23th; Stephen, stoves, 617 8th av; Thomas, laborer, h 141 Hammond; C & Redmond, fruits 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors, 62 Fulton".
    In 1865 the listings were "David, plumber, 24 W B’way, h 171 W 40th; George W, stoves, 477 Eighth av; Philip, h W 125th n Seventh av; Ralph, clothing, 62 Fulton h 265 W 23th; Stephen, stoves,, 645 Eighth av; Teets & Throckmorton, clothing, 62 Fulton".
    In 1866 the listings were "Caroline, fruit, 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber, 24 W B’way, h 171 W 40th; George W, stoves, 477 Eighth av; Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton, h 255 W 23d; Stephen, plumber, 545 Eighth av; C. & Redmond, fruits, 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors, 62 Fulton".
    On March 22, 1866, David was identified in a newspaper article announcing the marriage of his daughter, Mary J., as “Esq.” which seems to indicate that he was a lawyer!
    A newspaper clipping from Centralla, Ill. April 19, 1906, said that :"Mr.. Teets (Benjamin) has always claimed that it was he who assisted Samuel B. Morse, the inventor of the telegraph, in perfecting his instruments and soldered the wires together to make the first trial." Since David and Benjamin were in business together, perhaps David Teets also worked on Samuel B. Morse's telegraph.
    An article in the Philadelphia Inquirer on January 28, 2007, described the living conditions it the tenements in New York City:
         At No. 97, Orchard Street you’ll find the Tenement Museum, rising high and narrow above the cobblestone street.

The residents eked out livings in the clothing business, found odd jobs, became cobblers, and pushed vegetable carts.
    On June 25, the 1870 Census list David Teets, age 47, a plumber; his wife, Clara (?), age 43, keeping house; Charles, age 18, a plumber; Ann, age 15; Sylvanus, age 8; and Samuel, age 6; living in New York City. David had real estate worth $20,000, and personal property worth $3,000.
    In 1880 David listed his occupation as House Furnishing and Plumbing in the US Census. He and Caroline lived at 367 West 31st Street, in Manhattan, New York. David was 57 and Caroline was 54. Their son, Chas was 28, Chas' wife Annie I was 21, & he was employed in same business as his Dad. Living with them were their daughter, Annie E. (born 1859), and their sons, Sylvanus G.

    On the 1st day of June, the 1880 Census for Coeymans, Albany County, New York has Abm. Teets, age 65, and his wife, Abby, age 68, living with other family members. There was no house nomber or street name on the census. Under the heading, “health”, Abby had “kidney” written. Abm. was a farmer whos mother was born in Rhode Island.
    Caroline died at 10 P.M. on July 6, 1890 of Cerebral Apoplexy and Cerebral Softening, which she had had 2 years and 1 year respectively. The attending doctor was Dr. J. F. Gray. She had lived her whole life in New York City, and died at 332 W 31st Street, (a private house), where she had lived . On July 8, 1890, the following obituary was published in the New York Times;

    David2 Teets (Edward1) son of Edward and Phoebe (Terry) Teets of Schoharie County, NY
    David was born in Summit, Schoharie County, New York on March 10, 1823 and died December 31, 1890 in New York City, N.Y. He was almost 68 years old. He married Caroline Moor, who was born February 22, 1826 in New York City, New York, the daughter of James and Eliza Moor.
    In 1840 he was living in New York City. David and his brother, Benjamin lived in New York City at 462 Washington, in 1845 . Their place of business was at 226 Canal Street, and they were listed individually and also as "Teets, B&D, Tinsmith, 226 Canal" in the city directory. Their brother, Philip, was a stove manufacturer at 292 Greenwich, beginning in 1842. In 1846, David moved his business to 296 Greenwich, only 2 doors away from his brother, Philip. David then moved his home to 192 Reade, which was near his brother, Philip, who lived at 162 Reade. In 1847, David listed his business at 226 Canal Street again, and Benjamin was listed as "late tinsmith"; since Benjamin was still alive, David evidently wanted to keep Benjamin's' name in the business. David was living at this time at 48 Harrison. The following year, 1848, David listed his business and home addresses both as 226 Canal Street. In 1849 Benjamin, Tinman, was listed at 291 W 20th, and David, tinsmith, at 54 Harrison. David's address was the same for the next two years.
    The 1850 Census on September 4th, has David and Caroline living in the 5th ward of New York City (The name looks like Steets, instread of Teets. This is why I could not find it in the last five years). David was 27 and Caroline was 24. David was a Tin Smith. Caroline’s mother, Elisa Moore, age 48, who was born in NY in 1802, was living with them. Caroline’s brother, Barney, age 17, was a Tin Smith and was born in NY. Caroline’s brother, Charles was 20 years old, and he was born in Canada? John Terry was 25, and was a clerk. There was 11 other people living with them, between the ages of 16 to 27 and 3 of them were Tin Smiths. None of these 11 people seem to have been related to them. One of their neighbors was listed as a plumber. Since Eliza Moore was living with her daughter, Caroline, I am assuming that her father, James Moore was dead by that time. [For more on the Moores, see chapter 53].
    In 1859 David was listed as a plumber at 5 B'way, living at 141 W 40th, and his wife Caroline had her own business and was listed as "fruits, 210 Wash, mkt h W 40th". There was also a listing for "D & S plumbers 5 W B’way". (This is David and Steven).
    In 1860, Abraham, tinman, h 239 W 34th, George, stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, Philip, tinware, 808 G’wich h 199 W 34th, Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton St h 49 Charlton, G & S stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, Stephen, stoves, 477 & 681 8th av h 195 W 37th, C. & Redmond, fruits 210 Wash mkt" were listed. There were plenty of family in the area. (Source; City Directory).
    On June 9, 1860, David was living with his wife, Caroline and their children in New York City, and his occupation was "Master Plumber". The value of his real estate was $4,050 and the value of his personal estate was $2,000. David was 37 years old and Caroline was 35 years old. Living with them were their children: Mary, age 13; David, age 11; Charlie, age 8; Anna, age 5. Also living with them were: Charlot Conalim, age 30, a domestic; Charles Moor, age 29, a bookkeeper and perhaps a younger brother of Carolines'; and D. H. Provost, age 17, who was possibly David's sister Martha's son, who was an apprentice to plumbing.
    An article in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle on Feb. 19, 1861 on the Kings County Fire Insurance Company of the City of Brooklyn, L.I. identified Ralph Teets, Stephen H Provost and Andrew J Provost as directors.
    In 1862, the listings were (all Teets) ", David, smith 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; Abraham, smith h 254 W 34th; George, stoves, 477 8th av Melrose; Philip, stoves, 312 & 394 G’wich h 199 W 34th; Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton h 205 W 27th; Stephen, smith h 185 W 39th; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors 62 Fulton st". David and Stepher were both listed as "smiths". Tinsmithing and stoves were beginning to merge as plumbing. Steven lived on the very next street to David.
    In 1863 the listings for Teets were " C poultry 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; George, stoves, 477 8th av h 106 W 36th; Philip, stoves, 310 & 394 G’wich h 199 W 34th; Ralph, clothing 62 Fulton h 205 W 27th; Stephen, stoves, 617 8th av; C. & Redmond, poultry 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, clothing, 62 Fulton". Caroline Teets was now into poultry and she had moved across the street.
    In 1864 the listings for Teets were "Caroline, fruit, 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber 5 W B’way h 171 W 40th; George W, h furnishing, 477 8th av h 106 W 36th; Philip, stoves 394 G’wich, h 199 W 34th; Ralph, tailor 62 Fulton h 265 W 23th; Stephen, stoves, 617 8th av; Thomas, laborer, h 141 Hammond; C & Redmond, fruits 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors, 62 Fulton".
    In 1865 the listings were "David, plumber, 24 W B’way, h 171 W 40th; George W, stoves, 477 Eighth av; Philip, h W 125th n Seventh av; Ralph, clothing, 62 Fulton h 265 W 23th; Stephen, stoves,, 645 Eighth av; Teets & Throckmorton, clothing, 62 Fulton".
    In 1866 the listings were "Caroline, fruit, 209 Wash mkt; David, plumber, 24 W B’way, h 171 W 40th; George W, stoves, 477 Eighth av; Ralph, tailor, 62 Fulton, h 255 W 23d; Stephen, plumber, 545 Eighth av; C. & Redmond, fruits, 209 Wash mkt; Teets & Throckmorton, tailors, 62 Fulton".
    On March 22, 1866, David was identified in a newspaper article announcing the marriage of his daughter, Mary J., as “Esq.” which seems to indicate that he was a lawyer!
    A newspaper clipping from Centralla, Ill. April 19, 1906, said that :"Mr.. Teets (Benjamin) has always claimed that it was he who assisted Samuel B. Morse, the inventor of the telegraph, in perfecting his instruments and soldered the wires together to make the first trial." Since David and Benjamin were in business together, perhaps David Teets also worked on Samuel B. Morse's telegraph.
    An article in the Philadelphia Inquirer on January 28, 2007, described the living conditions it the tenements in New York City:
         At No. 97, Orchard Street you’ll find the Tenement Museum, rising high and narrow above the cobblestone street. The immigrants came here from places as diverse as Ireland, Italy and other parts of Western Europe, Russia, the Ottoman Empire, and Lithuania. The American garment industry began here. The Tenement Museum interior re-creates the spare apartments of the residents who lived in harsh, Dickensian circumstances. The original buildings had no heat, light or running water, and few windows until the late 1860s, when the state enacted laws that forced landlords to improve living conditions. The residents eked out livings in the clothing business, found odd jobs, became cobblers, and pushed vegetable carts.
    On June 25, the 1870 Census list David Teets, age 47, a plumber; his wife, Clara (?), age 43, keeping house; Charles, age 18, a plumber; Ann, age 15; Sylvanus, age 8; and Samuel, age 6; living in New York City. David had real estate worth $20,000, and personal property worth $3,000.
    In 1880 David listed his occupation as House Furnishing and Plumbing in the US Census. He and Caroline lived at 367 West 31st Street, in Manhattan, New York. David was 57 and Caroline was 54. Their son, Chas was 28, Chas' wife Annie I was 21, & he was employed in same business as his Dad. Living with them were their daughter, Annie E. (born 1859), and their sons, Sylvanus G. (born 1862), and Samul A. (born 1864). Living with them as boarders were: J.T Hilderbrant, a widow, age 25 who was a Street Sprinkler; Angel Olesegrate, age 18, a machinist; John King, age 28, a bookeeper; Piere Betts, age 23, a clerk; Geo Graham, age 50, worked at custom house; Thos, age 50, no employment; and Lizzie McIntoshe, age 45, employed by the Teets as a domestic servant.
    On the 1st day of June, the 1880 Census for Coeymans, Albany County, New York has Abm. Teets, age 65, and his wife, Abby, age 68, living with other family members. There was no house nomber or street name on the census. Under the heading, “health”, Abby had “kidney” written. Abm. was a farmer whos mother was born in Rhode Island.
    Caroline died at 10 P.M. on July 6, 1890 of Cerebral Apoplexy and Cerebral Softening, which she had had 2 years and 1 year respectively. The attending doctor was Dr. J. F. Gray. She had lived her whole life in New York City, and died at 332 W 31st Street, (a private house), where she had lived . On July 8, 1890, the following obituary was published in the New York Times;
    Teets - On Sunday, July 6, CAROLINE, wife of David Teets, aged 64 years.
    Friends and relatives are invited to attend the funeral services at her late residence, 332      West 31st St., on Tuesday afternoon, at 4 o’clock.
    She was buried on July 9, 1890 in Woodlawn Cemetery, the Bronx, and S.M. Hook             710 8th Avenue) was the undertaker.
    When David died December 31, 1890 his occupation was stove dealer, he had lived 50 years in the city, and he had died at 92 West 89th Street on the 3rd floor. He died of cancer of the stomach. The attending doctor was Dr. J. B. Columbia. He was buried on January 3, 1891 in Woodlawn Cemetery, the Bronx, and S.M. Hook (710 8th Avenue) was the undertaker.

    I'm just getting started on tracing my side of the Teets family and I have very little information past my grandfather. I would appreciate any information you might have. My grandfather lived many years in Gassaway (Braxton County) WV. He was born cir.1875 and married Cora Riffle. I have been told that he worked for the railroad until he was injured and then opened a grocery store in Gassaway in the 1920s or 1930s and later moved it to Chapel Hill just ouside of Gassaway. My grandparents had four sons: Ord, John Melvin and Harman and one daughter, Dola. I have been told that they also had twins that died at birth. My father, Melvin b.1914 d.1975 married Laura Keener b.1922 of Sutton, WV and moved to Charleston in 1942. I can provid you with more information about my uncles and aunt if you would like to have it,.
