Tedeton, Tedleton, Teddleton Tettleton Relatives
Posted by: Robert L. Tettleton Date: January 13, 2002 at 15:07:07
  of 18895

I am starting again this year to try to learn something about my great-grandfather Frank Tedleton. He came into Union parish in the 1880,s, from no one knows where, and married Alfretta Smith in 1878. My grandfather Monroe Tedleton later Teddleton and even later Tettleton, was born in 1879. Please some one in Union parish must help me. I have been hunting for over 3 years with know result. It has been said he died over across the D'Arbonne and was buried in an unmarker grave in an unknown cemetery. Not much to go on. My grandfather was about 13 when he died but he would not talk about his father or mother to me or any one else. Alfretta Smith Tettleton married again in 1893 to a Samuel A. Foster and left the four children with relatives departing with Foster for parts unknown. She must have returned some time later for I am told she is buried at Shady Grove Cemetery in an unmarked grave. Her youngest son James Franklin Tettleton (Uncle Jim) returned from the 1st World War and married Bessie Roye in Farmerville and he stated on his application for a license that his father was dead but his mother was alive. The date of the application was 1918 so I feel resonably certain she lived on for a while longer in the area of Shady grove with her daughters Ockie Duty and Gussie Rogers. If anyone knowns anything at all about any of this I would so appreciated your help. (Bob) Robert L. Tettleton, 137 Leighton Rd., Oxford, Ms. 38655 or phone 662-236-5608
