||The entire Teeter family assembles on the front lawn of Uncle John's
impressive Gettysburg home, spring, circa 1956-57. John was the eldest
child of John S. and Margaret R. Teeter and a proficient businessman.
On the death of his father, he became President of the John S. Teeter
Sons Company. His house had scores of bedrooms, an elevator and color
televisions. John stands in the middle of the back row. His wife,
Marjorie, and his mother, Margaret, are seated directly in front
of him. My father, Fred (the youngest brother), stands to the left
of John, the eldest. My mother, Priscilla, is seated in front of
Dad. I'm seated on the armrest to Priscilla's right. My sister, Becky,
is on Priscilla's lap.

for Adams County, PA for 25 years and founded the successful law practice
of Teeter, Teeter and Teeter, now operated by my cousins Bob and Sam.
Richard became a successful psychiatrist for whom, upon his untimely
death, a hospital library was dedicated in Minneapolis. Jim was chief
of surgery at Waynesboro Hospital for 25 years and a prominent medical
missionary in Africa and Asia. Like my father, Bill stayed with the
quarry business. Mary married Bob Clingan, a Teeter Stone executive,
and raised a family near Taneytown. Virgina married Richard Haggerty,
a successful writer of Broadway musical scores, and raised a large
family in Old Greenwich, CT.
