TESTON My GGGrandfather is Frederick M. Teston. Born in South Carolina in 1789. He immigrated to Amite county Mississippi in the early 1800s. Estimated arrival in MS is between 1810 and 1814. To date, we have no information as to where he was born in SC or who his parents/siblings or extended family may be. He married Elizabeth P. Wall about 1809. Elizaabeth was born in SC about 1788. We have no information as to Elizabeth's parents/siblings or extended family. We do not know if they were still in SC or in MS when married.  We have information concerning Frederick and Elizabeth after their arrival in MS but can find nothing of them or their families in SC. We are interested in any information concerning the Testons or the Walls while in SC or earlier , about their immigration to MS or about their early years in MS (ie: prior to the birth of their children).  Sept. 2006 Bill Teston

TINSLEY In Port Royal Island Battle Boosted Patriot Morale, I am doing a search for information about the battle of Beaufort. My g.g.g. grandfather John Tinsley lived in S.C. in the late 1700s and my g.g. grandfather John Tinsley, Jr. was born there. I found a copy of a letter in the National Archives for Congress that was written by my g.g.g. grandfathers daughter Tabitha (Tinsley) Temple to the 30th Congress stating that her father fought in the battle of Beaufort and served for three years in the Continental Line. She was writing the US Congress because her father never got his military land bounty. This is all the information I have on John Tinsley other than a copy of a will from his father Thomas Tinsley who died in the 1790s in S.C. 96th District. I seek a record, muster roll, or any other kind of information about this battle and John Tinsley. 7 August 2001 Kevin Tensley
