James M. Teasley was born in Whitfield County, Georgia, in 1858, a son of Allen D. and Rhoda M. Teasley. The Teasley family came to Kansas in 1866, when James was about eight years of age. They came by way of Nashville, Tennessee, to St. Louis, thence by boat to Kansas City and reached the Solomon Valley by wagon and team. The Teasleys settled in a portion of Cloud County south of what is now called the Town of Glasco. The first homestead of the family is now the Charles Horn Place. Mr. James M. Teasley is of English origin, his grand-father having come from England to America. The Teasleys forty or fifty years ago shared in all the customs and practices of pioneer life. During the winter season they used buffalo robes in abundance as artieles of clothing, and the floors of their houses were often carpeted with similar robes. They were prominent leaders among the parties of buffalo hunters who scoured the plains and killed great numbers of those animals both for meat and the skins.

On February 28, 1894, James M. Teasley married Miss marths Winget, daughter of Silas and Annie Winget. They are the parents of four children: Earl, Lloyd, Dale C. and Esther M.
