Thank you. I'llcheck that out on the Teeter Board.
Just as a thought---presumably Samuel Gibson Teater was born c1730. While the use of middle names among the German population was routine at this date (ie, John George, Johan Joseph, etc), the use of a surname as a given name, was not---On the otherhand, the use of a middle name among the Scot-Irish/English population at this same time was exceedingly rare---30 years later such usage is in fact coming into play, but its still uncommon.
In anycase, if he was born c1730, using a surname as a middle name would be decidedly unusual in either population group, but particular unusual among the Scot Irish.
