Your welcome. I will add some very usefull inforamtion to clear several matters up.
Had Joseph Kellogg had a proper reserch budget and proper inforamtion 4 decades ago we wouldnt be making so many corrections.
For example the following.
Johann Georg Dieder, b. March 9, 1739, baptized April 29, 1739, m. Mari Catherine. Children: Johannes Diter, b. March 26, 1769, baptized April 9, 1769; Anna Marie Diether, b. April 17, 1771, baptized May 5, 1771; Elisabetha Diter, b. June 22, 1773, baptized October 3, 1773; Johann Georg Dieder, b. December 12, 1775, baptized January 5, 1776 in Delbehaden township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. Source- "The Deter Family History, A Genealogy, Beginning with Johann Georg Dieder, Born in 1739."
Produced by the Deter Family History A Genealogy of John George Dieter by Eunice Deter Geraldine Deter Theodore Deter published in the 1850s.
This book was written by the Grandchildren of the John George Dieter born baptized on the Opequon Virg 1739. This the Dunker family which came on the ship Allen are all buried Delbehaden Township Berks PA. Its clearly documented and the graves are maintained to this day easy to inspect.
He was not the George Teater of Washington Co and Garrard KY.
It was a olden mistake by Joseph Kellogg which has been copied by Patsy Benton in the book Teaters of Kentucky. Until now the Teaters of Kentucky have simply failed to make the vital corrections, as did the Teter Hinkles by Jeff Carr on the same Kellogg manuscript. Kellogg simply didnt have the resources to get the job done right pre internet.,
The book and CD of Dunker John George Dieter is sold by Daniel Wenger 511 Hamstead Way Santa Cruz ca 95062
Many family members from the Teaters of Kentucky bought the book of Patsy Benton, Teaters of Kentucky and are relying on that ,wrong incorrect information origianly
produced by Joseph Kellogg. In the book it simply copies Kelloggs work which says the John Gorge Dieter boen 1739 is the George Teater of Kentucky this is totally incorrect. Many of them havent gotten the word, or troubled themselves to veiw new information...
I have to cast the next portion as nothing more high drama fictional pass the buck genalogy. It flys across the internet that Parris Teaters father inlaw was runaway Tory from New York married to Dutch Aristocrate and joined the Patriots in Virgina, He was robbed and killed in Lynchburg 1794. Its near fantasy genealogy.. Benjamin Totten appeared as a Orphan 1764 as Benjamin Tutdon , apprenticed to Miller.
The 1st John Tuton appeared in the northen neck 1724 as squater alone at Goose Creek. Evicted by the Aubry Awebbreys ect 1748. He is spotted in NC with Absolum Tuton 1750s Miltias.
John Totten a brother of Benjamin Totten was on the Muster Rolls with Sgt George Teater battle Point Pleasant.
John Totten Benjamin Totten listed april 7 Capt Thomas Ingles Co Montgomery Virg., Burks Garden.
1779 Benajamin Tuttin petition Orange Co NC..
Peter Tutten and John Porterfield 1779 old 96th SC.
1782 Benjamin Totten in the same area Bakers Creek Wahington Co tax list.
1783 Nolichucky Greene co John and Benjamin Totten till 1788.
1799 Benjamin Totten GraiNger Tenn tax list.

In the year 1802 Capt Benjamin Totten Jonas Griffith father of Samuel Griffith Jackson Tenn. Benjamin Totten Jr listed as Private 2 documents War 1812. Therefore Benjamin Sr was Still alive in 1802. Therefore George Teater Sr was still married to Esther Griffith at this time, Benjamin Totten was still married to his wife Ester at this time.
Sometime after 1802 the 2nd wife of George Teater being Ester Griffith died leaving 3 children Lewis Nancy and Susy.

Sometime after 1802 Benjamin Totten died leaving his wife Ester a widow.
In the year1813 George Teater took a trip to Overton Tenn with his son Parris and wife Rebecca her sister Easter and husband George Hohimer brothers James Totten and Joseph H Totten and a Richard Teater. To give a Power Attorney to Benjamin Totten Jr clerk of Overton Tenn Court. The Power of Attorney regarded a land claim against a David Doak who also lived in Overton Tenn sme time. George Teater marred his 3rd wife also named Esther sometime between 1802 and 1813,
Only 3 Teeters are mentioned, Richard Teeter Parris Teeter and father George Teeter Sr. Explanation the land in question belonged to Ester the former wife of Benjamin Totten present wife of George Teeter. Thats why the Tottens need these 3 Teeters on the Power of Attorney. If it was Totten land they wouldnt need the Teeter men to sign off. Lewis Nancy Susy were not included becuse they were childen of 2nd wife Esther Griffith 2nd wife of George Teater.
Here is the document translated by Sandra Norris a Historical Jouranilist .25 jun 2004

George Teeter Sr and Ester Teeter his wife Late Ester Totten widow of benjamin Totten sr.Decd.
George Hohimer Easter Hohimer his wife Parris Teeter and Rebecca Teeter his wife. Richard Teeter James Totten Joseph H Totten children legatees of Benjamin Totten Sr Decd appoint Benjamin Totten Jr Our Attorney.. proved Garrard KY 1813
1st is wife sarah pearis died 1794.
2nd is Esther Griffith a relative of Jonas Grifith Samuel Griffith John Griffith all on George Teaters family papers.
Sometime between 1802 1813 Esther Griffith died.
Ester Totten widow of Benjamin Totten and mother inlaw of Parris Teater married George Teater as his 3rd wife.
2 wives were named Ester 2nd Esther Griffith 3rd Ester Totten widow of Benjamin Totten Sr.
Richard Teeter was not on George Teeters will. Explanation he died before 1815
