Nancy Tedder's Home page


                         Presented here is an actual picture of the spinning wheel she used to spin her yarn.

Nancy was the daughter of William Tedder and Martha. She was born in North Carolina and had 4 brothers and sisters
The Carmichael family still own the spinning wheel along with the cards she used to do her carding. How exciting this is to be able to touch this big Walking Spinning Wheel.

One of the things we found in researching Nancy, was her brother Littleton Tedder had signed as a witness on her marriage license.  We know Nancy was a much loved mother. That she spun her own yarn, so most likely she knitted or used a loom to make things for the family. Her spinning wheel was in a separate building on the Carmichael's land in Clay Ct. Alabama. I believed it was called the Loom House. According to the stories by Mira Carmichael it had spinning wheels, looms, a fireplace. The room was big enough that five spinning wheels stood in it. She was not sure if there loom was in the same room or another one or if there were more than two looms. She was proud of the fact that they had "Grandmother's (Nancy's) spinning wheel and remarked that it was over 150 years old. This Spinning Wheel is still in the Carmichael Family.

On the 1860 Census Talladega County Alabama,  page 961.  The census gives us some information about Nancy.  - Nancy Munroe, age 74 and her youngest daughter  Susan, age 27 living with her. Later Susan Munroe married Joseph Mc Conathy. He had been married Sara Jane Evans and they had 6 children. After Sara Jane's death Susan married Joseph Mc Conathy and gave birth to two children.

Of course we know Nancy Tedder (Munroe) died March 25, 1864. The Hatchett Creek Presbyterian Church records reflects this.  There is no mention of where she or her husband Duncan is buried. We know she attended church at Hatchett Creek Presbyterian Church as did other family members.

The next house on the census is the Levi family, (the Levi family is that of Sara Ann Levi who married John Anthony Monroe, the son of Duncan and Nancy. Next appears the Leach family and then guess who is? Ol' Joseph Mc Conathy - age 37, his wife Sarah - age 31, and 5 children - Joseph - age 10, Nancy - age 8, George - age 6, Isabella - age 3, & James - age 7/12 (seven months).

Joseph married Susan Munroe in 1871 some ten years later

There are people researching the Line of Tedder's and was gracious enough to supply us with much information. Someone somewhere has the Tedder Bible. They are still searching for it.
