Teese/Teas/Tees is not a common name in Donegal. The only family of that name in the 1901 census and Griffiths Valuation in 1858 lived in Carnatreantagh townland in the parish of Conwal. That’s near Letterkenny. This is them in 1901:

They were Presbyterian. Does that fit with your information? If so, you might want to research the Presbyterian church records for that area. Letterkenny 1st and 2nd Presbyterian churches both have records starting around 1820 so you might locate the family from that. There are other Presbyterian churches in the area but none has surviving records for the period you are interested in. Some Presbyterian records for that area are on the Rootsireland site (pay to view) but they are not all on-line. PRONI (the public record office) in Belfast has copies of all the surviving records for that area but they are not on-line and a personal visit is required to view them.

Can’t see any families of the name Cohan in Donegal in 1901 but possibly the name has changed over the years.
