J.D. TEAGUE SAID EDWARD WAS A BAPTIST PREACHER. HE LIVED IN FREDERICK CO., VA. AND LATER MOVED TO N.C.
Alexander Co NC used to be Burke Cty, NC Sources:Teague Family Mag.
Edward Teague was born Abt 1716 in Cecil Co., MD, the son of William Teague & Isabella E. Pennington.
He died 1810 in Burke County, NC (now Alexander Co.) and was buried 1810 in Antioch Cemetery, Alexander, NC.
He married Lurannah Sarah VAN SWEARINGEN, daughter of Thomas SWEARINGEN and Lydia Jane RILEY, about 1739 in Chatham, Nc (or Frederick County,VA?). Lurannah was born 15 Oct 1713 in Queen Anne, Prince George,MD. She died before 1805 in Burks Co. NC and was buried before 1805 in Burks Co.NC.
It has also been suggested that Edward married Sarah Price (born 1720?).The supposed children of Edward & Sarah are given below, although either the d.o.b. for Sarah or the dates for her children must be inaccurate. Information given to the Resource Centre suggests that Edward & Sarah married in 1734, which again does not fit in either with Edward's other marriage or the echildren of the supposed marriage. Any reliable sources for this data would be welcome.
There are also alternative dates/places of birth given for the children of Edward & Lurannah, leading some researchers to suggest that they had two lots of children named Vandever Swearingen, Edward, John and Lurannah, one group born in Frederick County, VA and the other in Prince George County,MD. Is it possible that one group of children were baptised twice (possibly after a move to another state, so that they were'on record')??
At the Munday-Teague Cemetery, Alexander Co., NC:
AT RIGHT FRONT CORNER OF CEMETERY FACING SIDE WAYS IS HUGE MEMORIAL STONE:
"Rev. Edward Teague England 1720-USA 1810, AFounded first Baptist church in Alexander Co., NC 1797, pastor of the New Meeting House Baptist Church- 1797 - 1810. I have found a good fight, I have kept the faith."
Obviously the assumption that Edward was born in England is incorrect-presumably someone mixed him up with his grandfather.
Supposed children of Edward Teague and Lurannah Van Swearingen are:
Vandever Swearingen Teague, born Abt 1740 in Frederick County, VA; died 1810 in Christian County, KY.
Edward Teague, born Abt 1750 in Frederick County, VA or Prince George Co,Md; died 1804 in Chatham County, NC.
John Teague, born 1751 in Frederick County, VA; died in Iredell Co., NC.
Michael TEAGUE was born 1755 and died 1818. Lurannah Teague. She married Jehu Barnes.
Isabelle Teague. She married Jim Duck.
Rachel TEAGUE was born 1760. Rachel married Richard BROWN
