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, Ancestors of Sherry Lynn 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? Phillip Rich
- She didn't sign off her dowery, she signed off her DOWER or Dowager Rights, aka Widow's share or 1/3 of the value of the estate with the children splitting 2/3 in most cases. Signing off on Dowager Rights usually means the husband is selling the land, so the wife agrees that once the sale is made, she has lost all rights to a widow's share of that property.
And at http://www.teagueonline.freeserve.co.uk/R&B/MD1002.html we find this statement... Steve Connolly (connolly AT twics.com) writes: "Occasionally, the following is published on various genealogy sites as fact: William Teague b. ca 1693, Cecil County, MD, wife Isabella Loftin b. 19 Dec 1693. However, several very assiduous researchers have been UNABLE to verify that. It is also possible that the wife referred to was Isabella Pennington (ca 1697, Cecil County, MD). One of those researchers, Ashley Loftin, was kind enough to send me photocopies of records that he had examined during his years of hands-on research. Indeed, there is no reference to anyone but an Isabell/Isabella. This is an on-going unsolved gap in our information. Unless solid evidence has come to light (evidence many of us would love to examine), please be advised that this controversy exists for both the Loftin/Lofton researchers and the Pennington researchers. We all have to remain vigilant about publishing conjecture as fact."Lynette Jester
