Garrett D. and James Teatsorth came to Findlay, Ohio from eastern Ohio in the fall of 1833. Their father, a Revolutionary War hero, came with them and died on Christmas 1834.

Garrett D. started a blacksmith shop soon after coming to Findlay, north of Main Cross Street. In 1837 he purchased the Rising Sun Hotel, built by Mr. Erb on East Main Cross Street, and in the spring of 1837, the tailor, on east Main Cross, and turned over the blacksmith shop to his son-in-law, David Webster. He carried on the tavern for many years, but finally gave up the business.

In 1849, Garrett and his brother, James, joined a party of men who went to California. Both later returned to Findlay.
