From Teagarden Book Vogt 1988
"Becasue of the early death of their parents, the family of John B. Teagarden became scattered and lost track of each other for long perods, hence data is varied and fragmentary.
John Marion's son Albert Leslie wrote in 1901 that his father and Oswin settled in Jacksonville, Illinois about 1830. After the divorce in 1842, Martha apparently remarried to G. Ellein and kept Thomas and Albert with her. They appear in the 1850 censsus of Jacksonville, Morgan County, Illinois in the G. Ellein household. Between 1850 and 60 the Elleins moved to St. Louis which accounts for the fact that both Thomas and Albert became Confederate soldier and their father, who remained in Illinois was loyal to the Union. He enlisted 9-20-1861 at Matton, Illinois and served as Musician in Company B, 7th Rgt., Ill Vol. commanded by Captain James Monroe; honorably discharged 8-12-1862; described as 5'6" tall, light complexion, hazel eyes and gray hair. His trade was a commmercial painter and he also farmed.
During the War, while crossing to the ferry at Cairo, Illinois he was crushed between a wharf boat and the ferry and as a result of his injuries, was admitted to a government hospital at Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. Albert L. wrote:"My father died in 1870 while on his way to Texas to live with me. No-one in the family knew of John's 2nd marriage until Sarah applied for a pension in 1872."
