Son of Oswin Teagarden and Mehitable Baker; married Fanny nee unknown, father of Charlie Teagarden (1898-1948).

Little has survived about Samuel's life. From the census and death records we know that Samuel was a farmer in Rusk, Texas. He was married Fanny Stevenson in 1895. Fanny was 20 years his junior. They had one child, Charlie in about 1895.

In 1920 Sam and Charles were living with Samuel's older sister, Mary and her family. Fanny can not be found. It is likely that she left the family because Samuel lists himself as married.

We do know from death records that Samuel's son suffered from some type of disability (listed as imbecile on death record). On Samuel's death certifcate he is listed as living in the Rusk Hosptial for the Insane since 1923. He is there with his son Charles, who died 8 years later. Charles could not read or write, his father Samuel could read and write.
