Sue this may be a long shot. but it might also pan out in time. You may notice by historical articles that
shortly before Samuel Teater went in to Dagworthys regiment
Thomas Girty was liberated from where he was captured at Ft Granville. Both Samuel Teater and Thomas Girty showed up same time in Bedford. But they both disappeared and showed up the same time 1768, Simon and Thomas father came from Ireland and was killed in a duel.The widow remarried possible Mr Tetrick
A family that followed Samuel and Thomas to Bedford.
As you now have learned George Teater was not a Teter Dieter ect . Not by scientific eveidence. He was Irish and Scotchwas a true Kelly. The surname Tetor came from other possiblities.
A worthy project for the Samuel Teter line to find several men for Y DNA testing. Several Girty men see what happens..
I would not be shocked or suprised to learn both of them were brothers and living all those missing yrs in the Indian nations. Samuel Teter knew to much about the Indians more than the average white man would know. So why?
His wifes aunt Doddridge was a Indian queen or high ranking lady. The wife of powerfull chief White Eyes. Same tribe Seneca that Simon Girty belonged to..
It maybe a longshot or not. Y DNA testing should clinch it.
The English prisoners recaptured from the Indians at Kittanning were Ann McCord, wife of John McCord, and Martha Thorn, about seven years old, captured at Fort McCord; Barbara Hicks, captured at Conolloway's; Catherine Smith, a German child, captured near Shamokin; Margaret Hood, captured near the mouth of Conogocheague, MD; Thomas Girty, captured at Fort Granville; Sarah Kelly, captured near Winchester, VA; and one woman, a boy, and two little girls, who were with Capt. Mercer and Ensign Scott when they were separated from the main body, and who had not reached Fort Littleton when Colonel Armstrong made his report.

The original of the following voucher and signatures is in the family of the late Judge Buffington, who obtained it from a kinsman of Captain Potter:

"We, the Subscribers, Acknowledge that we have Received our full pay from the time Capt. James Potter came into Colonel John Armstrong's Company to the first day of August, 1759.
