Teague/Tege Leads

Autumn ’98 Queries of Smoky Mountain Historical Society

ALEXANDER/CUTSHALL/DICKSON/DIXON/HODGE/HODGES/INGLE/TEAGUE/TEGE – My oldest TEGE/TEAGUE is Wallace “Joshaw a” TEGE b. about 1819 in NC. He first m. Martha Dean who had previously been married to an ALEXANDER. He adopted the ALEXANDER children and changed their names to TEAGUE. The ch. were: l. William Marion b.16 Oct 1845, SC d. Mar 15, 1930. b. Fairview Cem. near Afton, TN; 2. James Albert b.7 Dec 1847, Spartanburg, SC, d 17 Apr 1901, b. Greeneville, Greene Co. TN; 3. John Manning (probably called Jack, changed to John Ezell ALEXANDER) b.1848, Woodruff, SC d.19 Jul 1912, b. Old Mill Cem. Laurens Co. SC. Martha and Wallace TEAGUE had children: l. George b.1850, SC; 2. Mary b.1852, m. Couch; 3. Lethia b.1854. Wallace TEAGUE married a second wife on 10 Jun 1858, in Greene Co. TN. She was Rebecca DICKSON CUTSHALL, the widow of John CUTSHALL, Jr. Her p. were David and Elizabeth DICKSON, who are in the 1850 Greene Co. census. Rebecca’s children by her first marriage were: David, William and Henry CUTSHALL. Upon the death of their father the children were given over to the guardianship of their grandfather, David DICKSON, and raised by the grandparents. David, Elizabeth and the children were in Blount Co. in 1860 and 1870.

The children of Wallace “Joshawa” and Rebecca TEAGUE were: l. Harrison b.26 Nov 1863, d.16 Nov. 1891, in Sevier Co. He m. Sallie INGLE 31 May 1880 in Sevier Co.; 2. Lincoln b.14 Feb 1871 d-2 Dec 1925 in Sevier Co. He m. Fanny Jane Knight 13 Jun 1891 in Sevier Co.; 3. Houston b.26 Nov 1866, d.8 July 1933, Sevier Co. He m. Celia INGLE 26 Oct 1884; 4. Martha b. Mar 1870 d. unknown. m-G. W. HODGES in Sevier Co. 29 Dec 1887; 5. Nancy Florence b.12 Oct 1871/4, d.1 Apr 1939 in Tazewell, TN. m. John INGLE 11 Mar 1888.

Sallie, Celia, and John INGLE were all from the same INGLE family. Sallie and Celia were daughters of John Sr. and Celia/Caroline INGLE. John was the son of Sarah INGLE, sister to Sallie and Celia. John’s father was said to have been a HODGE/S. Wallace and Rebecca TEAGUE are in the Greene Co. Census of 1870. Rebecca is listed with all the children in Sevier Co. in 1880 and listed as a widow. Harrison is listed as head of household.

I have been unable to find a will or estate settlement etc. in either Greene or Sevier Co. for Wallace/Joshua TEAGUE or for any spelling variation. It is said that Nancy Florence TEAGUE INGLE- was one-half Cherokee. I have been unable to prove or deny this fact.

Supposedly the ALEXANDER father was abusive and his wife remarried to the TEAGUE in the Spartanburg area. I would like to learn if Joshua died in Greene or Sevier Co. and when. I have all the present TEAGUE information on most of the children’s families. I am glad to share any information I have. Any help on this line would be greatly appreciated. .
