52 Ancestors: #27 - Elijah J. Teague (1841-1913)

Elijah Teague and his family have been enumerated in many different ways, including Teay, Teag, Tegue and Teague.  I am spelling Teague in this manner because it is the spelling I have in some family papers.   

Elijah was the son of Wymer (Wimer, Winer, etc.) Teague and Meleta, possibly Lamar or LaMar.  Elijah was born in Taney County, Missouri.  In many online family trees this county is listed as Ganey County; however there never was a Ganey County in Missouri.

Elijah married Eliza Tuley on 21 Dec 1965 in Gentryville, Spencer County, Indiana.  Elijah and Eliza had six children.

William Andrew Teague (1866 IN to after 1940) married Mary Ann Cornelison and they had 10 children I believe.
Mary Olive Teague (1871-1906) first married Daniel Reese and later married Jacob Henry Severs.  She died after giving birth in 1906.  More detailed information about her is on her own blog page.
Emma Teague (1874 IN to after 1880).
Mattie Teague (1879 KS – after 1880)
James Charles Teague (1881 MO-1964 KS) – married Ida Mae Hooten about 1919 and they had two sons.
John Franklin Teague (1889 AR-1939 KS) married Ella Decker about 1918. I don’t believe they had any children.

Are you researching this Teague Line?  If so, I’d like to share information.

GRIP 2014 - Packing List

GRIP begins in 2 weeks and 1 day.  I'm excited!!!!

I am starting to plan for packing, because I'll have to do some shopping first.  I mentioned some of these things before, but I'm trying to consolidate my list, for me as well as for anyone else who may be attending.

ethernet cable - for the room (there's WIFI in the classrooms and the lounge area)
hair dryer - this isn't a hotel
body wash and hand soap - again this isn't a hotel
drinking glass
umbrella and/or rain jacket - the Pittsburgh weather is a little different from Phoenix weather
dressing in layers - who knows whether the classrooms will be hot or cold
business cards - an easy way of giving out your name and contact info to classmates as well as in dining room
computer power cord and extension cord
walking shoes - the LaRoche campus is beautiful

small bag to carry to and from class - for syllabus, computer, pens/pencils, etc. 

So, what am I forgetting?
Oh, yes.  A list of books I already have so I can shop at Maia's books
the normal clothes, toiletries, etc.
cell phone charger

Yes, the hotel provides sheets and towels, but a fitted twin sheet is helpful because the mattress covers are slippery and fitted twin sheets don't stay tucked in very well.
