Bio Photo Looking for the direct branch to the first Dieter over in America, may be either of two George Dieter from VA or a thrid family from NY/NJ ->OH. Found a German Castle - Burg Rheinfels on the Rhine built by a Count Diether V of Katzenelnbogen (county), built in 1245 and history of the city- St_Goar/Goarshausen goes back to 982. They have a city webpage here:, use Google Translate to read.

Paul Teter
My grandmother was a Teter from Pendleton Co. West Virginia.Della Teter daughter of Benjamin Y. S. Teter (Teeter) Her father changed the spelling of his name to Teeter. Benjamin was the son of Samuel Teter and Sidney Wimer I have an ancestor Paul Teter born ca 1732, died 1784 Rockingham Co. VA. However, he married Rebecca Hinkle born 1736 in Bucks Co PA. Rebecca was the daughter of John Hinkle and Maria Magdalena Eschmann. Paul Teter was the son of Georg Teter who was born 1699 in Germany,died March 23,1744 in Orange County, VA (Rockingham Co. formed from Orange Co. VA) George Teter married Maria Margaretha Luttmann born 1701 in Germany. Death date of April 27 1759. John Hinkle and his wife Magdalena are buried in the Hinkle Farm Cemetery, Pendleton Co. West Virginia.John Hinkle built Hinkle's Fort-1761-1762 a blockhouse for protection of his family against the Indians.(Present day Pendleton Co. West Virginia) It was used by the Continental Forces during the Revolutionary War. George Teter and Margaretha Luttmann are my 5th great-grandparents. I suspect these are the people you are searching for.

RE: Burr Benjarmin Teters
I'm not for sure what you are asking. Picture of grave marker?

RE: Samuel Teters Photo
Please forgive the tardy response.

The full inscription on that side of the stone is: Samuel Teters, died Oct 6, 1823, aged 90 yr -- Mary, wife of S., died May 3, 1838, aged 90 yr 4 mo.

Unfortunately, the sun came out right after I chalked the inscription and made it difficult to read. When I posted the photos here and on my Website I separated the two names so that they would be easier to read. The owner of the property told my husband that the stone was put up by descendants of the Teters family several years ago in order to commemorate them. Most of the original stones are broken and unreadable. The cemetery is still unfenced; so animals get into it all the time.

Jacob Teter
My husbands great grandfather was Burr Benjamin Teters. I was interested in the memorial for Jacob with an apparent problem over a will. We have a copy of a letter written by Jacob to Burr Benjamin dated 1877 and the two were apparently discussing an estate dating back to "fathers grandfather". Can you enlighten us more on the subject? Were there two Henry's (jr & sr)? Old family records only show one and I was having trouble trying to figure if the generation they showed was correct. Not having any luck finding anything on William either.

You're welcome! I also added pics of three other Teters in Bailey cemetery. They were beside George and his wife.
