BARDOLPH — Members of the General Macomb Chapter NSDAR along with supporters and Macomb Mayor Michael Inman celebrated the placing of a commemorative plaque at the gravesite of Catherine (Teel) Waid on Monday at Bardolph Cemetery. Waid, who died in 1901, was born in 1813 to John Teel of Pennsylvania. Teel is a recognized Revolutionary War “patriot” or soldier who fought for the nation’s independence. NSDAR member Barbara Stein is a descendant of  Teel.
Stein noted in her address to those in attendance that Waid was born in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. When John Teel died in 1835, his wife, also named Catherine, and at least five of their eight children moved to Schuyler County. Daughter Catherine, one of her brothers and their families later settled in Bardolph.
The brother and his family are also buried in the Bardolph Cemetery. Catherine Waid was a sister to Stein’s great-great-great grandmother.
“I am very proud of this marker that is being dedicated today,” Stein said.
A bronze plaque now rests between the headstones for Catherine Waid and her husband, S.C. Waid.
