1776-1781 - During the American Revolution Humphrey Baker's settlement became a marshaling area for public stores during the Revolution.

1782 - Tax rolls of Washington Co, VA list George Baker and his younger brother Rev. Robert Baker in James Dysart's District, Humphrey Baker and son John Baker & Alexander Baker in Aaron Lewis District. .

in 1768 George Teater bough a tract from Frederick Stering short] Starnes at what the Irish or South Irish fondly referred to as Crab Creek tract the south Irish colony. In the Swiss records of New Bern it descibes Stering or Starns a orphan from the french speaking region of Swiss-. Stalnaker is called a Dutchman by person named in letters by George Teater s father inlaw Capt Richard Pearis.. There is a sales deed by George Teater and wife Sarah in Crab Creek.

The next deed is George Teater sold to John Porterfield 1785 a sum of land at Bakers Creek Washington co. This would be in Col Arron Lewis tax district. Interesting notes are John Porterfield was listed alongside Peter [Tuttin Totten ]William Teter Richard Pearis. in the 96th district sc. on the 1782 Washington co tax list it names Benjamin Totton. His daughter Rebecca was a daughter inlaw of George Teater. and George Teater remarried Ester the wife of Benjamin Totton after 1802.
Even more interesting is William Teter was from Brunswick Virg he was a french huguenot a son of John Jeter. John Jeter had another son named George Jeter who spllled his name as George Teator in Fredrick co 1744 next to George Parris. even more intersting is a Jacob Jeter bought land near to the Bakers tract 1783 he also named himself later on as Jacob Teater. these people were French and lived in England for several generations before John Jeter came over to Surry Virg 1700 era..
Another intereting name is Joseph Hicks. 1n 1782 a single man name Joseph Hicks joined a John Totton in Montgomery co with Thomas Ingles where they rejoined a muster at Bakers tract including Benjamin Totton after thomas Ingles family was abdutced by indians. Thomas Ingles himself was a abductee and rased as a Indian. By name Joseph Hicks Totton was another son of Benjamin Totton. he was the grandfather of a Kentucky Governor.. Strange but true the history books note his family remebered for thier Native Intellegence..
Samuel Teater noted on his pension he went into Kentucky with his father George Teater 1779. So his family was left behind most likey under his inlaw Benjamin Totton..
Most of them ,males in that line were middle named Lockhart and Clinton. and there was a letter from Benjamin Lockhart to James Lockhart Totton stated as my dearest cousin. His afffidavit said he was born in Ashville North Carolina..
and Benjamin Totton was not from New York he was on Orange county North Carolina petition 1777 where a older man Abslom Tuton lived earlier.
