Dear Myriah Elizabeth Teel, I, too, am a direct descendent of Richard Teel. Your great-grandfather, Robert Ervin Teel, and my great-grandfather, J.W. ("Uncle Billy") Teel were brothers. Parents of Robert Ervin Teel and J.W. Teel were Richard Teel and Adeline Hart Teel. Uncle Billy Teel had only one child, Naomi Laura Teel. She married John Mayo. Naomi and John had eight children, including my father, Jesse Lee Mayo. As a Captain in the Army Air Corps during WWII, Jesse Mayo met and married my mother in London, England. My parents had 3 children. My brother, John Byron Mayo, my parents and my grandparents are buried in the Teel Cemetery near Saratoga, Texas.
