Re: [genpcncfir] Cherry family of Pitt (Beaufort) County
- Dear Liz,
I did not know that John Cherry was a minister. I
have never seen his will. Can you tell me where I can
In Chronicles I and the following pages on the
Cherry line, that line is not linked to the McGowans.
Additionally, I do not think the McGowans had separate
entries on their line. Then there is Gatsey Llwellyn
Cherry's line to William Teel as well as to Catherine
Teel, the second wife of John McGowan my great
However, when I corresponded with John Teel about
Rachel Teel the first wife of John McGowan and mother
of the four sons mentioned in his will, John Teel knew
nothing about her.
I would think it very odd, given the McGowan
tradition of marrying related women, if Rachel turned
out to be totally unrelated to these Teels.
However, accepting that possibility, if you know
anyone who might have Teel information or whose family
is not related to that of John Teel, I would be
grateful if you would pass along my information and
ask if anyone would be willing to share information
about Rachel. I do not even know where she is buried.
