The story is told that Phebe being a "hired girl" in the home of Jacob's father, accepted a proposal of marriage from Jacob and they set the wedding date. While working in the woods one day, Jacob broke his leg and feeling sure that the wage of $1 per week, which Phebe received, would stop were she to become one of the family, postponed the wedding until he was able to work again.

GUESTBOOK FROM PHEBE'S FUNERAL. Susan Musser Minch has this book. Phebe Eliza, daughter of Timothy and Mary Catherine (Gerst) Haughey, was born in Steuben County, Indiana, February 10, 1856. Departed this life, March 24, 1941.

At the age of 17, she was united in marriage with Jacob Teegardin, son of Aaron and Katy Ann (Tharp) Teegardin, also of Steuben County.

The parents of both were early pioneers of northern Indiana.

To this union were born six children, five of whom survive: Mrs. Cyrus Sheline, and Mrs. Frank Sutton of near Metz. Mrs. Lee Musser of Angola, Eugene of Butler and Russell of near Hamilton. The husband and one daughter precede her in death several years ago.

Other near and dear ones to mourn her departure are the grandchildren by whom she will be greatly missed. Also her four sisters, who have enjoyed her companionship through many years, will grieve to find her place vacant; these togather with other relatives, friends and neighbors.

An ardent lover of nature, the outdoor world held for her many charms. The cultivation of flowers and plants was a past time of her life, and essential to her happiness.
