The Teed family mostly resided in New Brunswick, Canada in Sackville or Moncton, Westmorland county. They have been mostly listed as Baptists or Methodist. It's possible that they were originally from the US but were loyal to the King during the Revolutionary War and were exiled to the Canadian provinces.

Daniel Teed was born about 1806 in New Brunswick, married to Mary Myers who was born about 1808 in Nova Scotia. Their children are listed in census records as:

Moses Teed married Sara Cole during the 1800's, in New Brunswick, Canada.

Moses and Sarah's children are listed in census records as:
James E. Teed was born in 1865 and died in 1936.

James married
Ellen Mary Riley in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Ellen Riley was born August 6, 1864 in St. Croix, Hants, Nova Scotia, Canada, the daughter of James Riley and Maria Batts.

Ellen mother, Maria Batts, was a
Micmac tribal member (North American Indian).

Ellen (Riley) Teed (baby ?)

James and Ellen Teed settled on Nahonton Avenue, in Milton, MA, USA.

James was a carpenter and built their home on Nahonton Avenue as well as many other homes he built in the towns of Milton and Randolph, MA.

Ellen was a hard worker — she made her own soap and raised her own vegetables. It is said that she would walk around with a rifle and used to kill rattlesnakes while in the Blue Hills picking blueberries.

James and Ellen Teed had 6 children:

Gertrude M. Teed Born 1887 Died 1939 Age 52 heart attack
Effie M. Teed Born 1889 Died 1970 Age 80 Cerb. Hemor

Gertrude M. Teed was born in 1887.

Here is a photo of Gertrude and her sister, Effie.
We're not sure who "Bobby" is.

Gertrude M. Teed

Gertrude married a man named George Stewart.

Gertrude and George lived in Avon, MA.

Gertrude and George Stewart had 4 children:
Howard E. Stewart Born 1909 Died 1949
James Stewart Born ? Died ?
Ralph Stewart
    Married to 'Loretta'
Born ? Died ?
Stella Stewart Born ? Died ?

Gertrude M. (Teed) Steward died in 1939 at the age of 52 from a heart attack.

Effie M. Teed was born on December 22, 1889, in Newton, MA.

Effie M. Teed Byrne

About 1911 Effie met a young man named
Thomas E. Byrne while riding on a trolley car in Milton. He was the train conductor.

Effie Teed and Tom Byrne fell in love and they married.

When Tom Byrne decided to marry Effie M. Teed, the Byrne family was not pleased. Effie Teed's religious faith was Protestant, not the Byrne family's Roman Catholic religion.

Effie and Tom Byrne had four children:
Gertrude Byrne Born 1912 Died 1913 — whooping cough
Helen Byrne Born 02/09/14 Died 11/19/96
Alice Byrne Born 12/02/16 Died 01/05/93
Marjorie Byrne Born 12/31/1918 Died 11/11/65

Thomas E. Byrne tragically died in May of 1918 at the young age of 34 during the
Great Flu Epidemic.

Effie (Teed) Byrne was a widow at 28, with two young children, Helen age 4 and Alice, age 17 months, while expecting Marjorie, who was born December 31, 1918.
On October 29 1918, Effie wrote a "sad" letter to her brother-in-law, John "Jack" Byrne (Tom Byrne's brother) who was living in Glen Ellen, California. Effie wrote to Jack to tell him about Tom's death.

Read the reply letter from Jack to Effie.

Jack had been working as a secretary and business manager for the author Jack London until Mr. London’s death.

Jack Byrne returned to Massachusetts and paid his respects to Effie.
On Novemer 26, 1919, Effie married John "Jack" Byrne and 'uncle' Jack became 'father' of Effie and Tom's three young children, Helen, Alice and Marjorie. He loved his brother's children as his own. Jack and Effie made their home in Milton, MA.

Marge age 5, Helen age 10, Alice age 8,

The Byrne family did not approve of Jack marrying his deceased brother's widow and they disowned him. They had not been happy when Tom had married Effie and now two of the Byrne sons had married the same non-Catholic girl. They also did not like the fact that Jack and Effie were having so many children. Jack and Effie saw William's family during occasional Sunday dinners but rarely saw the others, unless they would run into them at William's house.
Effie and Jack's Byrne's family grew with their 6 children:
Martin Byrne Born 06/27/1920 Died 02/1976
Beatrice I. Byrne Born 06/21/1922 Died 02/26/2017 MA
Mary E. Byrne Born 08/15/1924 Died 12/06/2006
Eileen Byrne Born 03/31/1927 Died 02/17/1991
Patricia Byrne Born 02/10/1929 Died 07/04/1997
Barbara Byrne Born 02/15/1934 Died 09/26/1980

Helen, Alice and Marjorie were never considered to be half-sisters or step-sisters. Jack and Effie raised all nine of them as one, large, loving family.

Here is a 1927 picture with seven of the nine Byrne children.

Jack Byrne had been accustomed to fine things as he had lived on Jack London's "Beauty Ranch" in Glen Ellen, CA and now worked hard to support his large family. It was a constant struggle. Jack asked Effie if she would please consider moving to California but Effie was very close to her family and could not bear leaving them.

The Teed family lived in and around Jack and Effie's home on Sassamon Avenue, Milton, MA. a home which was built by Effie's father, Grandpa Teed (James Teed). This section of Milton was commonly known as "Tucker Hill".

Next door lived Effie's brother, Warren and his wife Peg and their son Charlie. Their back yard touched Grandma Ellen and Grandpa James Teed's backyard on Nahonton Avenue in Milton, MA.

Across the street from Jack and Effie lived her three other brothers, Charles, Harold and Albert and their families.

Every night the children would go to Grandma and Grandpa Teed's house to kiss them goodnight. Grandma Teed would make them molasses cookies and doughnuts on her big black stove. (She was known to 'tap' the children's heads with a thimbled finger from time to time.)

Eventually they all moved away except Warren and Grandma Teed.

Taken in Grandma Teed's backyard on Nahonton Avenue, Milton MA.

In 1929 Grandpa Teed's barn caught fire just after midnight. Gertrude (Teed) Stewart’s son, Ralph Stewart, was driving along Randolph Avenue, heading home to Avon. He ran out of gas. He quietly stole up to Grandpa Teed's barn to get gas and some how set the barn on fire.
In 1936 the family moved from Milton to 6 Wainwright Street, Dorchester, MA. so that Jack could be closer to his job at the IRS in Boston.

Jack Byrne died September 26, 1936.

Grandpa James Teed died two weeks later of a heart attack at age 72.
Effie stayed about six months at Wainwright Street and then moved to 8 Melbourne Street, Dorchester and went on welfare with 6 children at home. Martin the only boy, quit school to drive a taxi cab in Mattapan to help support the family. Effie and her daughters, worked at Toby's, a factory in Stoughton.

In the 1940's the family moved to 15 Templeton Street, Dorchester.
On Sunday, December 7, 1941 Pearl Harbor was attacked. The family were all visiting Grandma Teed and heard the famous broadcast over the radio that World War II had begun for the United States.

During the next four years everything was rationed, at night blackouts were declared and everyone pulled dark shades over the windows.
In 1943 the family was living at 998 River Street in Hyde Park.
1945 Effie decided to move to New Hampshire, first staying with her daughter Helen and her family. A short time later, Effie bought a little house on Border Street in Milford, NH, where the family frequently visited.

Jack and Deb Byrne with family, 1988

Beatrice I. Byrne was born in 1922. Beatrice was known by her nick-name "Bea". Bea was a very smart young girl, skipping the fourth grade in elementary school.
Beatrice I. Byrne

In 1936, when Bea was only 14 years old, she was with her father
John "Jack" Byrne at Boston City Hospital when he passed away.

Bea went to live with her father's sister, Aunt Kit McGrath, who had disowned her brother years earlier when he had married his brother's widow.

Kit now felt sorry for Bea's mother, Effie, "now alone with all of those children". Kit said she was willing to take one of Effie's children to her home to educate the child and would then send the child to college. Bea was chosen probably because she had skipped a grade.

Bea left with Aunt Kit and was given her cousin Edward's room, as he was away at college. After a couple of months she became so upset and so homesick for her family that she returned home.
At age 14, Beatrice was a bridesmaid for her sister Helen who married Donald Holt in New Hampshire.

Beatrice met a young man when she was 14 years old while she was ice skating. His name was John J. Coleman Jr. who was age 15.   John Coleman's mother had died while giving birth to his sister. Although John had a stepmother, he visited the Byrne's home regularly as he liked being with the large family.

In 1939 Beatrice graduated from high school and went to work in a Boston restaurant. While working there, at age 18, she ruptured her appendix and after recovering, she went to work at the telephone company. This helped support the family and enabled the family to have a telephone.

Beatrice I. Byrne married John J.Coleman, Jr. when she was 20 years old in 1942. John went to work for his father in Jamaica Plain. On his first day on the job John was cutting down a tree and he broke his leg. John wore a brace for nearly a year after that accident.

When WWII broke out, John Coleman could not enlist in the Army with all of his buddies, due to the leg injury. His buddies all served in the 101st Infantry and nearly all of them were killed in the war. John served in the Coast Guard and then the National Guard.

Mary E. Byrne
Mary E. Byrne - 1924 Mary E. Byrne - 1925 Mary E. Byrne - 1926 Mary E. Byrne - 1929 - Kindergarten

In 1929, the Byrne children were very excited about meeting family visitors from California whom their father had told them of.
Effie, Mary's mother, had done her 5 year old daughter's hair up in rags so she would have curly hair. Mary looked like Shirley Temple with her curls and a pretty dress and entertained the guests by singing a song and dancing for them. Mary's gift was a doll with blond hair, (which she said her sister Beatrice threw in the brook behind their house).
Mary was only 12 years old when her father Jack Byrne and grandfather James Teed died in 1936.

Mary Byrne entered her teens in the midst of the Great Depression. She was only two years younger than her sister Beatrice and they have remained close throughout their lives.

Click here for list of Mary Byrne's children.

Mary graduated from high school and worked with her mother at a factory called Toby's in Stoughton to help support her family.

Here's a picture of Mary Byrne (front left kneeling)
and her girlfriends.

Taken in 1942 for their high school 'baby party'.

At age 13 she met a handsome, young Sicilian man named Vincent Zuffante. He was four years older than Mary. He enjoyed going over to the Byrne home because Mary's mother Effie played the piano. Vin and Mary's Brother would play their harmonicas along with Effie's piano tunes while the whole group would do a sing along.

He bought Mary her first pair of ice skates when she was only 14 years old. They used to flood the park across the street from the Byrne home for ice-skating. Everyone would gather at the Byrne "clubhouse" to put on their skates and walk across the street to skate.

When Mary was 17 she had her tonsils out and remembers that Vin's father, who was a barber and owned a barbershop in Dorchester, came to visit her.
Mary and Vin dated, taking the subway, as they had no car, going to the North End and walking to the Boston Gardens. They fell in love; he bought her a hope chest in 1942 for Valentine's Day and proposed.

Mary Elizabeth Byrne married Vincent J. Zuffante the following September 26, 1943 at St. Mark's Church in Dorchester, MA. Mary's sister Beatrice was her maid of honor and their wedding reception was held at Vincent's parents home at 12 Center Avenue, Dorchester.

You can see Mary's sister Beatrice to the right of Vin's left arm.

Eileen is the tall woman on the right (white coat).

A letter was sent to California, to author Jack London's step-sister Eliza London-Shepard and Jack London's widow, Charmain London, with pictures of Mary and Vin's wedding. A note was sent back in reply complimenting on how beautiful Mary was.
Mary and Corporal Vincent Zuffante

Vin went in the Army in 1942 to serve in WWII. Mary and Vin lived at Camp Gordon in Georgia where he was stationed until he left to go overseas in September, 1944.

Mary lived with Vin's family in Dorchester, MA while he was stationed overseas. While living there she learned to cook Italian meals from her mother-in-law, Josephine. Mary soon began to understand the broken English mixed with Sicilian language that was spoken by the extended family who lived in the house and nearby.

Mary was at home and her husband Vincent was overseas on February 17, 1945 when she witnessed her mother-in-law, Josephine, carry her father-in-law up the stairs from their wine cellar where he had taken a heart attack and then died.

Vin was discharged from the Army January, 1946, was sent to Camp Kilmar in NJ and then to Fort Devens in Massachusetts. Vin's oldest brother, Saverio, (known as "Sal") took Mary to Fort Devins by train to visit him.

Here's a 1948 picture of 4 generations.

He went on full time at the South Shore Hospital, working his way up to Chief Nursing Assistant. Mary took a job as a proof reader at Hammett's, a school supply company in Braintree, where she worked until she retired.

Mary became a very talented knitter making beautiful sweaters and afghans while Vin crafted beautiful dollhouses. Mary made the curtains and rugs for the dollhouses, one of which came in first place at a crafts show.

After Vin retired, Mary and her husband enjoyed traveling from Canada to Florida.

Patricia A. Zuffante was born in Dorchester, MA in October of 1950.

Patricia at 6 months

Just before Patty turned 4 years old, she and her family moved to Braintree, MA in September of 1954.

Patty took tap dancing and ballet lessons as a little girl and attempted to learn how to play the guitar as a teenager.

At age 14, in 1964 Beatle music, writing poetry, sculpting clay and painting were the highlights of Patty's suburban life.

During the summertime the family would visit Aunt Bea's family at their cottage in Halifax. Patty and her cousin, Maureen McEntee, were swimming at the nearby lake one summer when Patty nearly drowned. Maureen was trying to teach Patty how to swim and when Patty tried to stand up there was no bottom to stand on. After a panic Patty was pulled from the lake by a lifeguard. As hard as the cousins tried to keep it from the parents and family, the lifeguard notified them anyway.

In her senior year of high school Pat went on a blind date with a young man from East Braintree named Joseph E. Daru. He worked at the Fore River Shipyard in Quincy as a pipe fitter. He was a very smart but shy man who enjoyed anything to do with machinery, automobiles and rebuilding the engines. When they were dating Joe had an antique fire-engine in his driveway. He worked on it nearly everyday in his driveway while Patty was dating him. Each day someone would usually try to crank the old crank on the front of the fire-engine to see if it would start. The paperboy one day gave it a crank and it sputted and choked then the motor kicked in. Everyone in the neighborhood was yelling and cheering! What a grand time!

Pat graduated from Braintree High School in 1968. Joe gave Pat a Lane Cedar Hope Chest and a beautiful ruby and diamond ring and they announced their wedding engagement.

Patricia A. Zuffante married Joseph E. Daru on June 21, 1969.

After their honeymoon in Bar Harbor and Arcadia, Maine Pat and Joe settled in Braintree, across the street from Sunset Lake. Joe began working for Maynard Fire Apparatus in Marshfield building new Fire Engines. He put a metal lathe in his workroom and began a project that took years to finish — the building of a steam powered locomotive train, cars, tracks and all.

Pat and Joe Daru had one child:
Darcie L. Daru Born 1970

Pat and Joe divorced but always shared in the upbringing of their daughter, Darcie. Darcie would visit her Dad in Braintree every other weekend and continued to do so when he moved to East Bridgewater where he set up his train and had an inground swimming pool too!

Pat traveled and moved several times, always working and attending school evenings and seminars at her places of employment. Pat graduated from Newbury College - majoring in Computer Science.

In 1988 Pat's father was very ill so she moved back home, building a second floor on the family ranch house, making it a garrison, the same house she had lived in from 1954 until she married in 1969.

Pat is employed as a Web Developer. She lives in Braintree with her long time companion, Sheila Fordham. Sheila and Pat enjoy traveling. Every year since 1992, they take a flight out west. Each time they rent a 4x4 and head in a new direction, putting thousands of miles on the rental as they drive through the prairies and mountains. They've been to most of the Western USA, and Canada as well as a drive around the Great Lakes.They're 2008 trip was a summer cruise to Alaska with Sheila's brother Steve, her sister Denise and Denise's husband Johnny.

Eileen Byrne was born on Sassamon Street, in Milton, MA on March 31, 1927 at 11:59 PM, so she was often teased... "one minute from being born a fool".

Eileen was nine when her father
Jack Byrne died in 1936.

She was sickly, having had rheumatic fever and polio, so spent a lot of time in bed. She would recall her father sitting on her bed asking how she was feeling, and of him reading to her. She often would say how wonderful her brother and all her sisters were to her, bringing her candy, coloring books and crayons.

In 1943, at 16 years old, Eileen left school and went to work at Toby's, factory in Stoughton, MA where her mother Effie and her 19 year old sister Mary were already working.

Mary, Margie, Eileen and Barbara, 1943.

In 1945 Eileen went to New Hampshire to live, along with her mother and with her sisters Patricia and Barbara.
Eileen met a young man at her sister Helen's house and began to date him.

Eileen and John Kolemainen fell in love, married and lived with his mother on South Street, in Milford, NH.

John Kolemainen had diabetes and within a year he died. Eileen delivered her first child in 1947, a son named after his father, John, on the day of her husband's funeral.

Eileen's mother and sisters helped her with the baby.
Eileen soon married Malcolm Dunklee a man whom she had met and fallen in love with as he was good to Eileen and to her baby.

Eileen (Byrne) and Malcolm Dunklee

Eileen and Malcolm had a baby in 1948, Eileen's second son, named after his father, Malcolm and they nicknamed him "Markie". As an adult his friends called him 'Mac'.l

They bought a house in Mont Vernon, NH. Eileen's family visited often, and was very happy for her. They all liked Malcolm, and Eileen was very happy.

Malcolm Dunklee tragically died within a year when he was killed in a truck accident.

Now a widow at age 22 with two little boys, she struggled to make ends meet. She was living in Mont Vernon, far from town and could not drive.

Malcolm Dunklee's best friend, John McEntee, grieving as well, tried to help Eileen by bringing her groceries and helping her with the house. He would take her and her boys for drives. Much against the wishes of his family, John asked Eileen to marry him.

Eileen and John McEntee were married and John adopted her two little boys. John was a bricklayer. He built a new house for Eileen on Knight Street, Milford, NH. They had seven more children, raising them as one large loving family. Eileen and John McEntee lost a child to illness, Catherine, in 1953.

John served on the Milford Fire Department for many years, retiring as Deputy Chief.

In April 1990, John retired as a longtime union bricklayer.

Eileen (Byrne) McEntee was diagnosed with bone cancer in October of 1990 and died the following February, 1991 at the age of 63.
