Andrew Jackson Teague was born in 1883 in the town of Success, Mo., in Texas County to W.H. Teague and his wife.
Andy had four brothers — James, Gilbert, Herbert and Roy — along with two sisters, Ala and Jonnie.
Andy became a successful teacher for years in his hometown, before deciding in 1913 to live in California.
He arrived in Santa Ana and went to work in the sales department of the Union Oil Company. That job brought him to Huntington Beach when the company made him an agent for the area in 1917. It was in that capacity that he became acquainted with his future partner.
Andy moved, along with his wife Essie and two children, Nema and Jack, into a home at 513 Delaware Ave. He continued for one more year with Union Oil before putting full time in at the Huntington Beach station.
