William W. Teague was born December 23, 1864, at Hagerstown, Ind., the son of W. R. Teague (a man of prominence in his country) and Emily E. Hendricks, a North Carolinian. William attended public school until fifteen years of age, after which he went to school in Kansas until eighteen years old. In 1879 he moved to Muskogee, Creek Nation, where he entered the employment of Cass Bros., merchants, with whom he remained until 1887, when he went to Wagoner and took charge of Miller & Co.’s mercantile store. Here he worked two and a half years, when he was made postmaster and held that office the same length of time. In April 1891, in conjunction with Mr. McQuarie, he opened a mercantile establishment at Wagoner. These gentlemen carry a stock of, say, $6,000, and are owners of their stone building, while Mr. Teague has a nice residence in town. In 1891 he married Miss Georgia Hubbard, daughter of Colonel H. H. Hubbard, a Cherokee by blood. Mr. Teague is a member of the Masonic and Odd Fellows’ lodges, is a gentleman of pleasant address, well educated and very popular.
