Plenty of Teeter family (my mother's side) interested in family history. At least there's a critical mass. Dave Rutherford was even featured last week! Thanks for doing the Y DNA test; we can definitively say that your Teters is a different line from our Teeter.

You'll have to settle with being a pioneer until you meet up with another family historian in another Teters branch. They may well be out there.

I have discovered that Teter was a very common name in Germany (comes from the name Dieter). I have Teter ancestors too, and many of them if you would like to talk further.
I know Kennedy, been patience, but am 67 and diagnoised with MM cancer (Genetic).... arghhhhh.....
I’m not sure which Kennedy you are referring to?

& Patty, I know that the 4 older children of Henry Teter changed their names (same yDNA), to Teters (our-west), Teeter North), Tetter (South) Tetters(south, then west). I did find one in Michigan, but he won't write back. Found a genetic, 5 generation away, cousin in Poland, haven't tried.

And yet there seem to be a lot of Teters' profiles. Someone appears to be interested in the family.

I dropped like 1100 of them about 3 years ago, you are like the 5th comment and the 2nd question I've got about them. Go to my page and I have a Digital Family Tree I made from Geni.. Pictures back about 3 generations and the Tree itself  with connections back about 7 generations. Gives a quick understanding of the links. Just cuz ~~ Thomas James Teters June 23, 1952 - sometime.

Don't know.  You'd have to ask your family.

Here are the Teters profiles on Wikitree. You might find some you recognise if you take a look at them.

My condolences Thomas..... it does appear you're carrying the water for most of the Teters' profiles on WikiTree.  

I noticed one orphan Teters profile   (Teters-96) ..... a Korean War  U.S. Navy Pilot who later flew for Pan Am.    Have a heart and adopt this incredible man..... maybe one of his descendants will discover WikiTree someday and join you.
