The following information was submitted by Private Thomas W. TEEPLE's descendant, Dan Turnbaugh of Dahlonega, GA, and transcribed by Karen Souhrada for inclusion in the genealogy articles section for Washington Co., PA web site in April 1999.
Karen Souhrada writes:
I have been contacted by the great great grandson of a Civil War veteran from Washington County. He is shown on the rolls of Company E, 22nd PA Cavalry, as Private Thomas W. TEEPLE. The descendant wishes to annotate the record, as there are no notes shown following Mr. TEEPLE's name (hence, none noted by Crumrine or Farrar.) I have seen a copy of Mr. TEEPLE's records and can verify their truth and, if we can, show the information with an annotation such as, "information supplied by descendant, per military record). The entry should then read:
Thomas W. TEEPLE, [Noted by descendant: MI September 16, 1862, MO July 19, 1865 New Creek, W. VA; Pvt. TEEPLE served as a courier of communications.]
The descendant, Dan Turnbaugh, provided the enlistment papers for Mr. Thomas W. TEEPLE, which Karen Souhrada transcribed below.
