From "The History of the Teddlie Family" by Rev. William J. Teddlie, Age 86, July 1930

Benjamin "Ben" Teddlie married two sisters named Emanuel. First he married Lucy Emanuel, who lived but a short time. He then married Susan the other sister, all of Georgia. One child Laura was born of this marriage in Georgia. After that Ben moved to Louisiana, in 1848, and was said to be fhe first settler in the village of Winnfield, though others like C.F. Womack and John Worner claim this distinction, which was surveyed out in 1852, and incorporated in 1854. In the new home Asa "Ace" Teddlie was born, said to be the first child ever to see light in Winnfield, arriving on August 9, 1850, and dying June 2, 1934. Susan then went to her reward and was buried at old Jerusalem. Ben then married Evaline Teagle and established a new home two miles west of Winnfield. Several children were born to Ben and Evaline but all died young but three boys, Ben, Jr., Willis and Solomon. Old man Ben and his third wife eventually passed on and were buried at Jerusalem Cemetery.
