Robert Charles Anderson identified her as "Teagle _____," married by abt 1650 to Matthias Button, as his third wife. She died in Haverhill 4 February 1662[/3] when the Button home was burned. Her husband claimed it was burned by John Godfrey.[1]

She is sometimes called Ann and/or Ann Teagle (and variants) in family files.[2]

A record of her birth was not been identified by Robert Charles Anderson. Teagle's birth location, maiden name, parents and/or siblings, etc. are not otherwise known.

Children of Matthias Button and Teagle _____:

  1. Sarah, b say 1650 [possibly a daughter by Mathias' second wife]; m at Haverhill 6 Jan 1673[/4] James Kingsbury [prob s/o Henry & Susannah Kingsbury].
  2. Hannah, b Haverhill 11 May 1652; presented for fornication in 1673, thus unmarried at that date; probably still alive on 14 Nov 1676, as otherwise there would not be five children to receive the distribution of their father's estate.
  3. Daniel, b Haverhill 10 April 1654; slain at Muddy-Brook Bridge 18 Sep 1675 with Capt. Lathrop; his 1677 estate was divided among his brothers and sisters, indicating he was unmarried. [That he named a son Daniel twice (once after the first one died, and by two different wives), suggests a possible family name.]
  4. Abigail, b Haverhill 16 June 1656; deceased before the division of her father's estate in Nov 1676.
  5. Matthias, b Haverhill 17 March 1657/8; m Haverhill 16 or 24 Nov 1686 Mary Neff.
  6. Peter, b Haverhill 17 July 1660; m by about 1690 Mary Lanphear, daughter of George Lanphear
  7. Patience, b Haverhill 1 June 1662; d Haverhill 30 October 1662.

Unknown-232791 and Teagle-167 appear to represent the same person because: Birth year, spouse, and death info match.

These profiles do appear to be for the same person. My problem is that I don't trust the information I have, so I'm not condifent I'd leave a merged profile with the correct data. I hope someone else can weigh in on this.
