As today as then , girls and young men did fool around and girls did get prgenent, maybe the family was convievant for both both families to have wedding at lancaster, where possible family heads lived grandparents older parents ect to inconvienant for many to travel to Virg for a wedding.
Maybe people when they used the term Virg could be east or west. People traveled to Penn as far south as Georgia to buy special farm equipment order goods from overseas ect,
The problem is always catching the correct spelling and variations by the Clergy the Sherriff Tax Colecter ect and the changes made to more english sounding sur names by the 2nd and 3rd generations. not to mention people using thier mothers sur names as 1st names.

About Issac Teeter he doesnt appear later as yet, indicates he was older than the others they were all war, Veterans younger.
Its taken 50 yrs to get George and Samuel almost cleared up still some things to do. I as 20 others have worked on that case for ever.
A few small datas made big differances.
One thing was finding george teaters grave stone by G. Teater which was buried , right there it said [ ye] 79 yrs old. then finding his his will which matched the headstone. so he was born 1736. therfore not the son of John George Teter.
To make the distiction of Samuel, Braddocks defeat means those survivers found any safe home they could Ft Fredrick ect. Washington noted he put the 2 companies from North Carolina to fixing Ft Cumberland at Willis Creek, even Dagworthy himself was noted as being a shopkeeper from New Jersey,
The life at early Bedford Raystown ect was settled, one man from a North Carolina family Archor Worley son of th Col Worley
A inlaw of the Tetertons in North Carolina. also include George Powell and Robert Ray John Kelly all having been connected to the same area, the finding 2 old brothers and a cousin in Tyrrell William Samuel John George Teterton Teeder Tator ect
fit the naming patterns of both George and Samuel.
the timeline of Elizabeth Gibson and William Teterton ect put one peice fits another piece ect
After the French Indian War it make sense that George and Samuel had a Longhunters camp someplace over the mountains, the connection to Bedford Raystown was the Worleys, George Teater bought his land in 1768 right next to Richard Pearis property Dunkers Bottom. means he hunted with Samuel for furs pelts sold them in Raystown Beford ect saved up enough money to buy his property. Where upon he began cattles horses ect. he was noted then moving to a 2nd propety Bakers Creek. its noted John Gibson and James Gibson were there as well ,sons of James Gibson nephews of William Teterton and his wife Elizabeth Gibson.
Joseph Worley married one sister and Samuel married the other sister so they never returned home stayed with thier wives families. By 1778 Samuel was in Kentucky or earlier but his family lived in Penn, George went into KY only with his oldest son Samuel 16yrs old 1779 left his wife Sarah and kids behind at Bakers creek wash co. he moved his whole family to downings station by 1783, yet he was noted as raising horses and cattle only with 4 negro males slaves away from the staion witht out his family all the way to 1787,
Timothy Logan mentioned Charles Teater with Samuel Teater in his squad samuel being George son revolution. Yet Charles Teater can be found 1777 with Walter Gibson Elizabeth Gibson brother exploring patrs of Georgia. Chrles was not in Georges will so would of been killed in the Rev or died before 1815.
Henry Gibson married a high ranking Christian Tuscarora woman kids Walter William James Elizabeth . Elizabeth married William Tator Teterton. Its now thought that the revolution General Elijah clarks mother was from a another sister he s noted on deeds with Walter his brothers name was Gibson Clark and it appears that another possible son of George Teater and Sarah Pearis was Charles Teater who has notes with Walter Gibson.
You see George Teater named a son Samuel for either Samuel Gibson Teater or his uncle Samuel Teterton one George after himself or his cousin George Tedder one son William after his father William Tator Teterton and the rest are all named after Richard Pearis family and one after the Preacher Lewis Craig.
So in Jacob Teetrs case maybe info on the inlaws might bring more to light.
