Original Highland Township Landowner
Henry L. Teeples
Henry Luke Teeples was born February 27, 1807, in Monroe County, New York, the son of Jacob and Herodias a/k/a Rhoda (Bentley) Teeples. He made his purchase in Section 36 of Highland Township just a few days prior to that of his brother, Jacob Teeples, Jr., but whether he actually settled on the parcel is unclear. He reportedly died in 1843.
