William Teague , who had started life as a working miner at the age of eleven, progressed to be an under-captain and eventually a mine captain. He made a fortune in Tincroft and Came Brea mines and subsequently became connected with the Penvoll Smelting Company, which was another profitable venture. According to R. Symons' "Gazetteer of Cornwall" published in 1884, "he exibited a singular tenacity for mining. He was a legitimate miner, no dealer."

My gut is telling me neither Isabella is correct.

According to Dutch/German naming patterns, the first son is named after the Paternal G-father (Edward) and the second son after the Maternal G-father. (Moses?) If either Isabella Pennington or Isabelle Loftin was the Mother, then the second son should be William or Abraham.

Granted, this naming pattern was not followed 100% of the time, and is really more of a clue than a definitive guide. But the first son was Edward...

I am not having any luck with finding "First" sources thus far, but I have found some convincingly documented websites listing Land Transfers and Church Records. One such website, Sorrells makes clear that Isabella Teague signed off her dowery on land transfers up until Sept of 1736. All else is speculative. With the scarcity of records available, I feel it is too presumptuous to assume that the 2 eligible Isabells we have records for are the only 2 Isabells of the given time period. We know Isabella E. Pennington married in 1714. We know Isabelle Lofton was born in 1696. We don't know if either married William Teague to become the Isabell Teague that signed the land records.

To speculate either way is to take the tree in a completely different direction than the other. Both women exsisted. Both Families exsisted. But either and/or neither could be the spouse of William.

That being said, wouldn't it be most appropriate to leave the spouse of William as "unkown" and notate possible connections to the consolidated profiles of both Isabelle Loftin and Isabella E. Pennington in his Bio?

Another well sourced website. William Teague is number 419 a little past halfway down the page.
