Moses Teague (c.1792-1840) and Martha Cowmeadow (née Clayton (General)

Hello Peter,

Thank you for replying. I guessed that they would have known each other, but as you say it is a bit tenuous. Martha was only in her mid twenties when Moses died, and she lived for another 60 years, so, assuming that the annuity was paid until the end of her life, it will have cost the Teague family quite a considerable sum. It seems like a surprisingly generous was to treat the wife of a business associate. Also it is odd that Moses was so concerned that the money should be paid to Martha and not to her husband. I cannot help but wonder if there was more to it!

Best wishes,
Tina.
