Notes for Capt. *Elijah Teague:
There are varying accounts of Capt. Elijah Teague. Different sources say he was born in different places (possibly St. Mary Ann's, Cecil Co, MD, rather than place documented above). Death Date is listed as both 1772 and 1780. Information continues to be quite elusive as to the death of Capt. Elijah Teague. The one story that remains consistent is that he was murdered by Tories. He is listed on p 640 of the book, "Colonial Soldiers of the South 1732-1774" by Murtie June Clark, as having been commissioned as Captain in Rowan Co, NC and serving between the years of 1760 and 1764 (during the French & Indian War). -bet

The following information was found in census listing:

This information, coupled with the fact that Elijah Teague was listed as a Revolutionary War soldier from Newberry County in "Newberry County: Historical and Genealogical Annals" by George Leland Summer, would indicate that 1780 is the accurate DOD for Elijah. -bet

Elijah Teague is listed in the following website has having been part of the Regulator Movement in North Carolina:

Notes for *Ailsey (Alice/Alce/Alee) Davis:
According to Alan Lerwick (, Ailsey was the name used in a family Bible. The modern-day equivalent of Ailsey is Elsie. Transcribers who were not familiar with the name Ailsey made errors in writing; hence the name Alce, which was misread as Alee and corrupted as Alice.

Ailsey's maiden name remains a mystery. I've seen her listed as Davis, Morgan, Kennedy, Aisley, and most recently have seen her name as Leavell.

Ailsey (Alice) is listed on p. 2896 of the DAR Patriot Index Centennial Edition as having done public service during the Revolutionary War.

Notes for *John Furnas:
Birth Date 5 MAR 1736? John Furnas was quite athletic when a young man Legend brings to us a story of his ability as a swimmer. When the waters of the shore of England were sailed by many a pirate ship. John and a mate were taken captive by a pirate crew, John made a vow he would not be a slave nor stay on board long. One dark night he and his mate fastened their clothing on their backs and jumped overboard and were soon swimming toward what they supposed to be an island. They were shot at but miraculously escaped being hit. They swam for a long time and at last John's mate said he could go no farther and sank to a watery grave, and John swam on for a short distance and landed on an island in safety. Later he was picked up by a friendly ship. (taken from an account by Tanzy Furnas, written in the late 1800s)
