{genealogy} Teague ancestry part 4 - Judah Teague

Judah Teague

Heather’s 5th great grandfather

When Judah Teague was born on September 4, 1771, in Massachusetts, his father, Bani, was 29 and his mother, Joanna, was 35. He married Eleanor Knight on March 5, 1795, in Turner, Maine. He died on March 10, 1835, in Turner, Maine, at the age of 63, and was buried there.

Here is his birth record from Middleborough, Massachusetts, although this is not an original record. You can see his sister Mary is listed first, followed by Judah. Since they are consecutive on the page, they obviously weren’t recorded in “real” time. Also notice Judah is recorded as a “daughter” instead of a son.

Some histories give Judah’s middle name as “Dana”, the same as his grandson, but since I have found no direct evidence of this I only listed his name as Judah Teague.

I believe that he had a will, but I have not located it.

Here is his gravestone from Turner Cemetery:
