John Worley, 3rd appears to have been orphaned at a young ago. He died in 1794, leaving a Will in which he names his sons Lovick Worley, Joseph Worley and Robert Worley.
We now know that the Joseph listed in the Will is Joseph John Worley because of a 1797 indenture which refers to the property left in the Will and lists these three heirs, including Joseph John Worley of South Carolina.

A call from the united congregations of Ebbing and Sinking Springs, on Holston's River, Fincastle County, to be presented to the Rev. Charles Cummings, minister of the Gospel, at the Rev'd Presbytery, of Hanover, when sitting at the Tinkling Spring: Worthey and Dear Sir: We being in very destitute circumstances for want of the ordinances of Christ's house statedly administered amongst us under distressing spiritual languishment, and multitudes perishing in our sins for want of the bread of life broken among us; our Sabbaths too much profaned, or at least wasted in melancholy silence at home; our hearts and hands discouraged; our spirits broken with our mournful condition,

George Teetor, by this time George Teater and Thomas Evans had had been here many years already. this is the George Teater of Kentucky by his sons Samuel rev application noted he was born here. From Samuels application states that he was born in the month of February 1763 in Botetourt County In the year 1779 his father moved from that state to what is now the state of Kentucky.

William Edmondson, Captin of the Company & thinks that John Lowry was Lieutenant of the Company to which he belonged. His best recollection is that Col. Cambell commanded a detachment of the Militia what was ordered out against the Shawnee Indians on Clinch River -- at which time, to wit: Thomas Mcspaddin statement.
in the Summer of the year 1777 he served a tour of two months in the militia under the officers above named -- they did not have a fight with the Indians that Camaign, Capt. Edmundson & his company pursued them as far as Sandy River, and judging from their trail & the freshess of the signs we had nearly overtaken the Indians & was prevented further pursuit after them in consequence of the sickess of George Teter whom we could not leave, & had not sufficient force to divide, for previous to his sicness the detachment had been divided & sent in different directions after the enemy.
george teater was still in that area 1777 he was very ill chasing the shawnee to the sandy river.
Samuels application
In the year 1779 his father moved from that state to what is now the state of Kentucky.

I was then about sixteen years of age. On our way from Virginia, at Cumberland Mountain, the Indians fired on us and defeated us, killing one man and wounding two men (my father being one of them). When we arrived at the district of Kentucky we settled near where Danville now stands
George Teater was shot wounded on the way to kentucky 1779

Shortly after they went out, the Indians fired on them and killed a man by the name of John Wymore. When the firing was heard, some men and myself ran to their relief and got our guns shot while the Indians were scalping the man they had killed. The Indian Chief who was in the act of scalping the white man was called Wolf, and he had a harelip. The Chief was shot by our men and he fell on the man he was scalping. We tomahawked him and left him

I was stationed and remained at Clarks Station near where Danville now stands from the year 1779 until about 1781, except when out on duty. One day, while I was in the fort at Clarks Station, I went out to kill some meat for the people in the fort. On my return, close by the fort, I was attacked by the Indians. In the affray I was severely wounded.[ note ]George Teater was listed Clarks Sation 1781 82 as a Officer.

Sameul Teater]
Daniel Boones journal
On the first day of January, 1778, I went with a party of thirty men to the Blue Licks, on Licking River, to make salt for the different garrisons in the country.

About the first of August, [ 1778 ] I made an incursion into the Indian country, with a party of nineteen men,including my friend Captain Teter,,in order to surprise a small town up Sciotha, called Paint-Creek-Town. We advanced within four miles thereof, where we met a party of thirty Indians, on their march against Boonsborough, intending to join the others from Chelicothe. A smart fight ensued betwixt us for some time: At length the savages gave way, and fled. We had no loss on our side: The enemy had one killed, and two wounded. We took from them three horses, and all their baggage; and being informed, by two of our number that went to their town, that the Indians had entirely evacuated it, we proceeded no further, and returned with all possible expedition to assist our garrison against the other party. We passed by them on the sixth day, and on the seventh, we arrived safe at Boonsborough.

On the eighth, the Indian army arrived, being four hundred and forty-four in number, commanded by Capt. Duquesne, eleven other Frenchmen, and some of their own chiefs, and marched up within view of our fort, with British and French colours flying; and having sent a summons to me, in his Britannick Majesty's name, to surrender the fort, I requested two days consideration, which was granted.

It was now a critical period with us.--We were a small number in the garrison.--A powerful army before our walls, whose appearance proclaimed inevitable death, fearfully painted, and marking their footsteps with desolation. Death was preferable to captivity; and if taken by storm, we must inevitably be devoted to destruction. In this situation we concluded to maintain our garrison, if possible. We immediately proceeded to collect what we could of our horses, and other cattle, and bring them through the posterns into the fort: And in the evening of the ninth, I returned answer, that we were determined to defend our fort while a man was living--Now, said I to their commander, who stood attentively hearing my sentiments, We laugh at all your formidable preparations: But thank you for giving us notice and time to provide for our defence. Your efforts will not prevail; for our gates shall for ever deny you admittance.--Whether this answer affected their courage, or not, I cannot tell; but, contrary to our expectations, they formed a scheme to deceive us, declaring it was their orders, from Governor Hamilton, to take us captives, and not to destroy us; but if nine of us would come out, and treat with them, they would immediatly withdraw their forces from our walls, and return home peaceably. This sounded grateful in our ears; and we agreed to the proposal.

We held the treaty within sixty yards of the garrison, on purpose to divert them from a breach of honour, as we could not avoid suspicions of the savages. In this situation the articles were formally agreed to, and signed; and the Indians told us it was customary with them, on such occasions, for two Indians to shake hands with every white-man in the treaty, as an evidence of entire friendship. We agreed to this also, but were soon convinced their policy was to take us prisoners.--They immediately grappled us; but, although surrounded by hundreds of savages, we extricated ourselves from them, and escaped all safe into the garrison, except one that was wounded, through a heavy fire from their army. They immediately attacked us on every side, and a constant heavy fire ensued between us day and night for the space of nine days.

In this time the enemy began to undermine our fort, which was situated sixty yards from Kentucke river. They began at the water- mark and proceeded in the bank some distance, which we understood by their making the water muddy with the clay; and we immediately proceeded to disappoint their design, by cutting a trench across their subterranean passage. The enemy discovering our counter-mine, by the clay we threw out of the fort, desisted from that stratagem: And experience now fully convincing them that neither their power nor policy could effect their purpose, on the twentieth day of August they raised the siege, and departed.

During this dreadful siege, which threatened death in every form, we had two men killed, and four wounded, besides a number of cattle. We killed of the enemy thirty-seven, and wounded a great number. After they were gone, we picked up one hundred and twenty- five pounds weight of bullets, besides what stuck in the logs of our fort; which certainly is a great proof of their industry. Soon after this, I went into the settlement, and nothing worthy of a place in this account passed in my affairs for some time.

Mummey statement
His specific unit was a company formed in Charlestown by Samuel Teeters, which immediately left for Fort Pitt. There they rendezvoused with other troops for an expedition against the Seneca Indian towns on the upper Allegheny river. In command was Colonel Daniel Brodhead, and the expedition started out on 11 Aug 1779. They marched up the Allegheny, almost to the New York border. When they returned on September 14, they had accomplished the burning of eight towns, 130 dwellings and 500 acres of corn, and the capture of assorted copper kettles, horses, knives and furs - plunder worth $30,000 by one estimate. An account of the action can be found in Council Fires on the Upper Ohio

Interestingly, there is an eye witness description of Rev. Tobias Gibson (1771-1804). Tobias was the son of Jordan Gibson (d 1799), Rev. John G. Jones gave the following description of Rev. Tobias Gibson: "In person Mr. Gibson was tall and spare, with fair complexion, light hair, and piercing black eyes. Taking in his whole figure, in connection with his refined manners, benevolent and affectionate countenance, and agreeable conversation, he was considered quite handsome." ["A Complete History of Methodism", Vol. I, by Rev. John G. Jones, originally Nashville, TN, 1887, reprint Baton Rouge 1966, pp. 106-107.] There is a drawing of him at, however, Dr. William Jenkins, author of that piece, has some of the genealogy incorrect, though he gives a very interesting account of how these folks got around in the those days.

Capt Samuel Gibson Teater removed to Kentucky
Samuel Teeter was a relative of the family of John Doddridge, and soon followed them into what is now Independence township. He located a tract of land that contained three hundred and eighty acres, which was surveyed to him May 1, 1780, and twice resurveyed by an order of the board of property, Sep 15, 1784, and March 7, 1785. Upon the tract "Plenty" Samuel and Mary Teeter, with their sons Samuel and George, resided in a two-story log house, which stood near the house now occupied by Col. Asa Manchester. Northwest of the house and adjoining it was a fort known as "Teeter's Fort," which was not far from the "Doddridge Fort," and is well remembered by Col. Manchester. Around the house and fort Mr. Teeter. had built a stockade, which inclosed about one-eighth of an acre of ground. This stockade was built high above the house, and was constructed of logs sixteen feet long, which were split and set in the ground, with another tier placed over the interstices. Some of the logs which composed the house and fort of Samuel Teeter are still in use in the woodshed of Col. Manchester, who now owns and lives on the Teeter homestead. The property descended to him from Isaac Manchester, to whom Mr. Teeter sold it in 1797, when he removed to the State of Kentucky.
[note] the Ohio history states Samuel Teater removed from kentucky behind the Igous. the Igous lived down river from George Teater when he was at Bakers Creek.

Samuel Teater was born January __1735; Mary Teter was born January 5th 1748; Samuel Teter their son was born August 26th 1770; Susannah Teater was born April 20th 1773; George Teter was born Sept 26th 1775; John Teater was born January 11th 1777; Charity Teter was born November 21st 1779; Mary Teter was born June 9th 1782; Daniel Teter was born April 11th 1787
