George Teator of Kentucky commanded John Sax in Lord Dunmores war the court also ordered
George Teator to appriase the estate of John Sax in Washington Co Va. The Saxs were a Walloon
french speaking people. There were 2 Jacob Teeters Tetsoorts one was a son of Abrahham Teitsoort

This line settled in New Jersey. the other Jacob Teeter Titsoor a son of William Titoort
Tetter ect New York.
These records show cousins in England Samuel Teator George Teator Joseph Tetter joined Jacob Teeter
whom made his way to Surry Va then Frederick Co Va. He was joined the same year by George Teator.

They apear to have made their way to Bladen NC where they were joined by Samuel a son of Joseph.
Bladen Anson NC being the main stop for Jersey settlement in Rowan Co led Thomas Evans..
It appears George Teator is listed with no polls in Frederick Co Bladen Rowan Co.

He may have been widower and left his son George Teator of Kentucky in the care of a family
in Frederick Co va most likley George or Richrad Pearis. Samuel Tetter has only one record
as a clerk Edgecombe with Jacob Teeter Samuel was son of Joseph Tetter .

Joseph Teater appears to have come over from England to join George Teator and Jacob Teater in Rowan Co
he may have become disenchanted with frontier life in Rowan Co and returned to England.
he is shown to have possibly left one son there named Micheal Teator..

George Teator served under the Micheals who were Dutch Huguenots of ancient New York
came with the Jersey settlers. Frosts arrived in Frederick Co Va same time as the Teators all of George Teators family show be on the same records

The other Walloon family was that of Hans Diederick a Walloon from Sweden who migrated through Holland
to New York where he married a Dutch Huguenot family and lived with the Dutch and Indians
in Bergen New Jersey. This family has many records with Capt Samuel Teeter and his wife Mary Doddridges
family and Samuel Teeters childrens in laws all or most were Dutch and may be the origins
of Samuel Teeter of Union Ohio sometimes nicked named or known as Capt Samuel Gibson Teeter.

2. We are inclined to the
belief that as early as 1659 or 1660 the Hollanders had traveled

over this entire valley and had constructed what has been called
the Old Mine Road leading from Esopus or Kingston
on the Hudson through Rondout and Mamakating valleys,

These settlers were seven in number; Jacob Codebec, Thomas Swartwout, Anthony Swartwout, Bernardus Swartwout, Jan Tys, Peter Guimar, and David Jamison. The spot upon which they located was a little over a mile south of where we are now assembled, across the flats each from the house now occupied by Cornelius Caskey and around a small hill which may be seen there. The site selected by the first seven settlers was called Peenpack, which was the name given to the district extending from Cuddebackville to Huguenot and by which it was known until a comparatively recent date.

About this same year, it is probable, one William Titsoort, a blacksmith, located in this same valley a little farther south, about one mile from Port Jervis. Titsoort had been driven out of Schenectady by the fearful massacre there in 1689, barely escaping with his life to Esopus, where he had friends, and being known to the friendly Indians, he was invited by them to take up his residence in the Minisink country. They voluntarily granted to him a tract of land "situate and being at Maghaghemek, known by the name of Schaikackamick in an elbow".** (see note below) This description would seem to locate it about where the late Simon Westfall lived, including probably the property now owned and occupied by Benjamin Van Fleet. Titsoort obtained license to purchase October 15, 1698 and did so purchase. After remaining here some years, he sold to Jan Decker two parcels of land in 1713 and moved to Dutchess County.

to deed from [Jacob Teder] to James Bruce for 100 acres. Recorded same

The brothers were at court on this date, apparently taking the time to
witness a deed while appearing for their suits. Jacob Teder was an
adjoining landowner to their father, having bought this land a year
earlier from Bartholomew Andrews

Walloons in Sweden

Starting from 1620s, a considerable number of Walloon miners and their families had settled in Sweden.[36]

A large and important group of Walloons were brought to Sweden to make iron for their Dutch masters, and they did so by using their familiar iron making technologies. From the second quarter of the century the Walloon forging method was spread in Sweden as a complement to the already familiar German method. The Dutch and Walloon influences were concentrated to the iron making region of Uppland, around the very rich mine of Dannemora, north of Stockholm. There, Dutch entrepreneurs owned ironworks populated with skilled Walloon ironworkers making iron with the Walloon method. The iron that was made, named Öregrund iron after an exporting port, made up about 15 percent of the total Swedish iron production, with the remaining volumes made according to the German method.[37]

They were originally led by the entrepreneur Louis de Geer who commissioned them to work in the iron mines of Uppland and Östergötland. The wave of migration continued substantially into 18th century. Walloons became gradually integrated into Swedish society. However, Walloon ancestry is still traceable through Walloon surnames and people of Walloon descent are organised in Sällskapet Vallonättlingar (Society of Walloon Descendants).[38]

Walloons (wŏlūnz') , group of people living in S Belgium who traditionally spoke a dialect of French called Walloon, but who today for the most part speak standard French. The Walloons, numbering some 3.5 million, reside mostly in the provinces of Hainaut, Liège, Namur, Luxembourg, and Walloon Brabant, in contrast to the Dutch-speaking Flemings of the northern provinces. The movement for reviving Walloon literature centered in Liège in the 19th cent.; today the language is considered moribund. The periodical Wallonie had considerable influence. Since medieval times the economic and social background of the Walloons has differed radically from that of the Flemings, and the cleavage became even more pronounced with the Industrial Revolution. The Walloon part of Belgium contains major mining areas and heavy industries, while the Flemings engage mainly in agriculture, manufacturing (particularly textiles), and shipping. Tension between Walloons and Flemings has long been a critical political issue. In 1970 a plan was approved that recognized the cultural autonomy of Belgium's three national communities: the Dutch-speaking Flemings of the north, the French-speaking Walloons of the south, and bilingual Brussels. The name Walloons was also applied to Huguenot refugees in America by the Dutch, who made no distinction between French and Walloon Protestants
