Was the Catherine (Fanny) you mentioned the daughter by Mary Ann (Anna) Teaford's second marriage? As for Teaford, I have not found Mary Ann's parents. This is what I have for Teaford generally:

Salamonia Cemetery:
Harter, Anna wife of R Harter died Dec 8, 1880 aged 68y 8m 19d
Harter, Dr. Richard died May 26, 1873 aged 56 y 1m 6d

From Augusta Co., VA, GenWeb:
The area that became Augusta Co. (VA), was settled primarily by the Scotch-Irish in the early 1730s. Formed from Orange Co., Augusta officially became a Co. in 1738. The primary religion of the area was Presbyterian and the early settlers lost no time in forming the Triple Forks of the Shenandoah Congregation. The Tinkling Spring Meeting House... was the first Presbyterian church in the Shenandoah Valley.

The following was written by Dennis Moyer:
The first Teaford, Jacob, was of Huguenot descent. In the 1500's, his forebears left France because of religious persecution and lived for 200 years in Germany where the German name of Dufford was adopted. Wood says she is in the middle of compiling a family history book, and explains that there were different lines of the family branching off even then. On Oct. 27, 1774, Jacob came to America, settling in Shenandoah Co. in 1774 and in Augusta Co. in 1780. He died there in about 1800. The original immigrant's sons were responsible for beginning four branches of the Teaford family in America, and true to their father's penchant for wandering, managed to spread descendants across the United States in later years.

From the Genealogical and Biographical Record of Darke Co., OH:
Jonathan Teaford
Prominent among the citizens of Darke Co. who have witnessed the marvelous development of this section of the state in the past seventy-five years and who have, by honest toil and industry, succeeded in accumulating a handsome competence, is the gentleman whose name introduces this sketch. He was born on his present farm on section 21, German township, February 3, 1824, a son of George and Molly (Ketring) Teaford. The father was born in Virginia and when a young man came to Dark Co., locating in German township, where they were married, and the mother was born in Lancaster, PA, and was a representative of one of the oldest families of this Co.. In German township the father of our subject took up a tract of government land and he cleared and improved many acres. He died upon his farm in German township, at the age of seventy-six years. His was an honorable and useful life, in which he secured the confidence and respect of all with whom he came in contact. (of) the thirteen children born to him, ten reached manhood or womanhood, but only Jonathan and his twin brother, Barney, of German township, are now living. During his boyhood and youth Jonathan Teaford remained at home and on the 8th of March, 1848, he married Miss Sophia Smelker, who was born in Germantown, Montgomery Co., OH, April 4, 1826, and is the third child and oldest daughter in a family of thirteen children. Her parents, Jacob and Christina Smelker, who were early settlers of German township, this Co., were born in Germany and were married in Montgomery Co., OH. Mr. and Mrs. Teaford are the parents of ten children, but only five are now living, namely: Leander, who married Clara Jeffries and follows farming in Washington township; Mary Jane, the wife of Andy Biddle, of Randolph Co., IN; Eli, who married Mina Jefferies and lives in Neave township, Darke Co.; Ephriam, who married Dora a daughter of Henry Mills, and resides in German township, this Co.; and Elizabeth, the wife of Marshall A. Brown, of New Madison. For six years after his marriage Mr. Teaford lived upon a rented farm in German township, but at the end of that time he was able to purchase a tract of eighty acres on section 21, just west of where he now lives. His first home was a log house, 18X15 feet, which in 1869 he replaced by his present comfortable and substantial residence, erected at a cost of four thousand dollars. As this was soon after the close of the civil war prices were very high, and his barn, built about the same time, cost twenty-five hundred dollars. In business affairs he has steadily prospered, being a man of keen discrimination and sound judgement, and he has given to each of the sons eighty acres and to his daughters forty acres. His success in life may be attributed to his own industry, perseverance and good management, for on starting out in life for himself he had only one hundred and thirty dollars in money. He is one of the most prominent old settlers and highly respected citizens of Darke Co., and is certainly deserving of honorable mention in its history. Politically his is identified with the Democratic party.
