Teague Family

Note: this is a big family, in North Carolina and elsewhere. We have focused here specifically on the Teagues of Forsyth and adjacent counties.

First Generation

Edward Teague was born in 1655 in England (Bristol?) and died in Cecil Co. MD in 1697. His wife was Susan, and they had at least one son and two daughters:

Catherine Teague (ca. 1689-1717) m. Mark Whitaker (1685-1729)
William Teague (1693-bef. 1773) m. *Isabella Loftin or Pennington (1693-1737)
Ann Teague (1696-?) m. Thomas Mitchell

*Isabella's surname is given as Loftin in some genealogies and as Pennington in others. We believe that the preponderance of the evidence favors Loftin, but are open to more data. William came to North Carolina by about 1752. Some sources give his death as 1762; Jo White Linn's book of Rowan County tax records (p. 156) says before 1773, when his son Joshua distributed his father's property.

Marriage bonds confirm that Katie married Able Watkins in 1866. William Hedgecock lived with his daughter Martha Pearson wife of George Pearson in Doniphan County, Kansas. He was living with her when he died 5 May 1887. He is buried in a family cemetery in Doniphan Co. Kansas. Information concerning William Hedgecock from Anita Hedgecock Homan -
