About Joshua Teague

DAR Ancestor #: A113206 Patriotic Service

Joshua was a colonist in North Carolina who rose up against the corrupt British Officials and became a "Regulator" along with many other Carolinian colonists in the "War of the Regulation", which lasted from 1760 to 1771. Historians consider this as the catalyst to the American Revolutionary War. Joshua later moved to South Carolina, where he purchased 250 acres of land in Laurens, Co., SC.

He moved with his family to Frederick County, Va. in 1737-38 and on to North Carolina in 1751, settling on a grant of land in Abbotts Creek in Rowan County, on May 1, 1759.

On March 4, 1762 he purchased 430 acres of land on Abbotts Creek from his brother Moses Teague. In July, 1762 he took Title to 310 acres of land on Cataba River that was given to him by his father and sold this land to George Clayton on April 10, 1764.

On Sept. 15, 1765, he and his wife Dorothy sold 120 acres of the Abbots Creek property to Felix Metsinger, and on April 13, 1770 they sold the 310 acres on Abbotts Creek to James Welborn
