My great-great grandfather was a John Teuton (born 1883) married to a Carrie Elizabeth (Grandma Lizzie) Teuton (no info found). I'm not sure they were ever legally married and its hard to find information on that side. Along John Teuton's side, the men didn't believe in government and sending women to school. :( I do know that John Teuton was a drunk. He built and painted houses for a living in Jackson, TN. More specifically, the Bemis area of Jackson. I've been having a lot of trouble finding them. You said yours may have lied about their ages? As my grandmother says, "The Teuton side is full of liars, drunks, adulterers, and con-men." Hahaha Sounds like my family. :) Let me know if you have any information regarding any Teutons you may turn up in this area or other areas. :)
