You were right about the jail. George Tebo Sr. actually built the first Brown County jail in about 1838. He and wife, Nancy were active members of the Christian Church. We had a request for info on them about 2 years ago, and, unfortunately, we have thrown those away. We keep about a year of requests, and now will be hanging on to them for future reference. I think it might be of help to you to join our mailing list and put out a message for any Tebo's descendants who subscribe. the one who contacted us before might take notice. also post your names on our surname list. It all will help.

Thank you so much. The archives are quite far from here and I haven't had a chance to go over there yet this summer to look this one up. I didn't realize there was another John Tebo (son of Job)- I am most interested in the one born about 1849. It's good to know however. I found the marriage records for George and Nancy in Indiana in 1834 but cannot trace George Tebo beyond Indiana. (Except for the census info which says he was born in Va) Both John and George were into there 40's and still having kids. In fact John's first children weren't born until the 1890's from what I can surmise, making him almost 50. If anyone in the world contacts you about this name, please send them my way. I'm looking for a break. Supposedly one of the family donated land for a church or school or jail and I'd like to know where that was located.
Thanks so much for you current and past help.
