52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - #49 Catherine Treutlin

Catherine Treutlin (or Treutlen) was my paternal 4th great grandmother. She was born June 3, 1756, to Frederic Edmund Treutlin and Margaret Schaad, possibly in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia. Catherine's parents were early immigrants to Georgia, both landing on the Georgia coast in the 1740s.[1]

I only have two siblings listed for Catherine: Ann Margaret (1754-1827) and Elizabeth (1758-1759). Her uncle John Adam Treutlin was the first governor of Georgia.[2]

Catherine married John Robert Tebeau and gave birth to at least five children: Ann Margaret (b. 1790), Frederic Edmund (b. 1792, my 3rd great grandfather), Mary (ABT b. 1794), Charles Watson (ABT b. 1976), and Susan (b. ABT 1796).

Catherine and John lived out their lives in Chatham County. John died October 12, 1807, in Savannah. Catherine lived another 29 years after the death of her husband. It doesn't appear that she remarried after John's death. I found several tax records for "Catherine Tebeau" in Chatham County up until 1836 on ancestry.com.


Savannah Land and Tax Property Records, 1836, for Estate of John Tebeau, Catherine (Treutlin) Tebeau, and Frederic Tebeau (from ancestry.com)

The above record shows the Estate of John Tebeau had one slave and lot and improvements at Carpenters Row for both John's estate and for Catherine,

Catherine died on December 16, 1836, in Savannah. They are both buried in the family vault in Colonial Park Cemetery in Savannah.
