His data from military records closely resembles that of James Temple, also buried in Salisbury, NC, with similar dates and military records (including the unit). It may be they were brothers, or they are the same person going by different names, or there is confusion between two different people.


Joseph TEMPLE died in June 1879 in Alton, Madison, IL.102266 Buried in Alton Cemetery, Alton, IL, Plot: Block 26 Lot 4, on 12 Jun 1879.

Of the 11 enumerated in 1910, he was the only one whose death date was unknown.


Joseph TEMPLE37760 died before 1924. His wife's death records did not give much to go on. He might be Joseph E.

Joseph TEMPLE99972 was born on 3 February 1666 in Bishopstrow, Wiltshire, England, United Kingdom.49886,82779,102271,102272,102273,102274,102275 Some Temple Pedigrees gives the birth date of this Joseph as that of his son. Levi confused the elder and junior Josephs, creating a mess for sorting out their issue, and having Joseph be 166 still fathering children after his reputed death in 1740. The account presented here agrees with that of Temple People, Vol. II.

Also, Lucy Temple reports the birthplace as Bristol. He immigrated about 1671.49886 The dating is explained in Temple People, Vol. II citing the research of Lee Anderson McKinney of OK. McKinney found that Lt. Col. Thomas Walker was granted 300 acres of land for transporting 6 people to America. Among these six was Joseph Temple. The date of the grant was apparently incorrectly given in Temple People, as it is 20 Apr 1787, but I believe this is a typo, and the date was 1687. He died before 16 May 1699 at the age of 33.102276 His will was proved 16 May 1699, and named Hannah, and his son William, daughter Mary, and an expected child, which proved to be Joseph. Designation of the father as William follows Burke's peerage, based on the will of Joseph Temple, proven 16 May 1699. Some secondary sources locate him in Hochbury, England. Parents: William TEMPLE-22600 and UNKNOWN-61890.

Spouse: Hannah LISTON-34851. Hannah LISTON and Joseph TEMPLE were married on 6 October 1688 in VA.49886 Children were: John TEMPLE-109146, William TEMPLE-34852, Mary TEMPLE-34853, Colonel Joseph TEMPLE-4447.


Joseph TEMPLE7835,102277 was born on 6 May 1688 in Concord, Middlesex, MA.78504 He died before 1734 at the age of 46.7835 He was apparently dead by this date, as he is not mentioned in records associated with resolving his brother John's estate, but he probably died much earlier. Considerable confusion reigns over the identity of this Joseph and his cousin Joseph, the latter b. 28 Aug 1694. Without a doubt, Levi confused both of these Joseph TEMPLEs. There are other instances of Levi's having confused people of similar name. The implication is that the Joseph TEMPLE who married Abigail STEARNS was not the 1688 Joseph, but the later 1694 Joseph. Apparently, the 1688 Joseph does not show up after 1688, and may have died young, contrary to Levi's interpretation.

Analysis by Helga Andrews, expanded by Sally Eaton, draws on John Temple's estate records and has resolved the earlier confusion. (See John, b 1680 notes, describing his probate records.) John's estate was administered at the request of his father Abraham by his brother Isaac. In Abraham's request to appoint Isaac, he lists the siblings of John, eight in number, from which Joseph is excluded. There are several possible reasons this may have been true - he may have been disowned, or he had died much earlier. As to the latter, Abraham listed his children who had grown to adulthood and died, but Joseph was not among them. That argues for Joseph's having died early, before reaching maturity or marrying.

One final note needs to be added to him. there was some basis for Levi Temple's belief that Joseph, husband of Abigail Stearns, went to Sanford, ME. While Joseph and Abigail almost certainly did not, that leaves the possibility that Joseph, son of Abraham and Deborah, moved to that area very early, and was lost. That would fit with everything else known about his family, and about the Joseph Temple who married Abigail Stearns. Parents: Abraham TEMPLE-5031 and Deborah HADLOCKE-34.


Joseph TEMPLE1913,102277,102278,102279 was born on 28 August 1694 in Concord, Middlesex, MA.102280,102281 He moved in 1729 in Westford, Middlesex, MA.28055 He died.86207 Some Temple Pedigrees indicates Joseph and Abigail were "though to have removed to Sanford, ME." This is almost certainly wrong, and related to Levi's confusion with another Joseph Temple. Their last known location was Westford, MA. Joseph was a farmer (most likely).102278 Punished in 1745 for going to a private prayer meeting instead of going to church (although it may have been his son, Joseph and wife Sarah McKinney who were actually meant).

Considerable confusion reigns over the identity of this Joseph and his cousin Joseph, the latter b. 6 May 1688. Without a doubt, Levi confused both of these Joseph TEMPLEs. In fact, this opinion is supported by Helga Andrews, whose e-mail to the TEMPLE roots forum said, in part, "I am quite sure that he [Levi] mixed up two Josephs, and that the Joseph born May 6, 1688, son of Abraham TEMPLE and Deborah HADLOCK, was not the Joseph who married Abigail STEARNS. The 1688 Joseph either died young or doesn't show up later, but the Joseph who married Abigail STEARNS I believe was actually the son of Richard TEMPLE and Sarah PARLIN b Aug 28 1694. I did this research many years ago in the Middlesex Co Courthouse in Cambridge MA and did not photocopy records as I should have--they were not in my direct line, but I did enter these notes into my photocopy of the Levi Temple book and was quite convinced of their accuracy at the time!"

Sally Eaton followed up on Helga's analysis. She states the clue to solving this mystery has been "hiding in plain sight" in the estate record of Abraham and Deborah TEMPLE's son John TEMPLE of Concord, MA, as summarized by Levi Temple in Some Temple Pedigrees, pp. 12-13. The full answer is found in John TEMPLE's (1680-1734) probate records: LDS Microfilm #0421536, Probate records 1648-1924 (Middlesex County, Massachusetts), Probate Packet #22297.

John TEMPLE of Concord, MA, died on 17 July 1734 leaving no children. Five days later John's father Abraham TEMPLE, "being very aged and infirm," petitioned the Middlesex County Probate Court to appoint John's brother Isaac as administrator of John's estate. Abraham went on to list John's eight siblings: four brothers, two sisters still living, and two deceased sisters. John's brother Joseph -- and son of Abraham and Deborah (HADLOCK) TEMPLE -- is not mentioned nor are his children. This Joseph must have been deceased before 1734, leaving no children.

Therefore it was Richard and Sarah (PARLIN) TEMPLE's son Joseph (b. 28 August 1694 in Concord, MA) who married Abigail STEARNS on 28 November 1717 in Concord. Joseph and Abigail (STEARNS) TEMPLE were the parents of eight children born between 1718 and about 1737: Abigail, Joseph, Sarah, Ebenezer, Richard, Samuel, Thomas, and Elisha.

Joseph and Abigail TEMPLE's last known location was Westford, MA. He was a farmer (most likely).39189 Punished in 1745 for going to a private prayer meeting instead of going to church (although it may have been his son, Joseph and wife Sarah McKinney who were actually meant).

Some Temple Pedigrees indicates Joseph and Abigail were "thought to have removed to Sanford, ME." This is almost certainly wrong, and related to Levi's confusion with another Joseph Temple. Sally Eaton found an important passage in Edwin R. Hodgman's History of the Town of Westford in the County of Middlesex, Massachusetts, 1659-1883 (Westford, MA: Westford Town History Association, 1883), p. 169, which says in part that the Joseph Temple who moved to Sanford, ME, went there after the end of the Revolutionary War, meaning in 1783 or later. "The development of its [Maine's] vast resources was scarcely begun at the period of the Revolution. On the return of peace and the establishment of the Union, many resorted thither to subdue its wild lands and make homes for themselves."

If Joseph did indeed go to Sanford, and was one of the families that did this in 1783 at the earliest, he did so when he was 90 years of age. If he moved there at that age, he was not the one subduing the land, but perhaps he did so with one of his sons or grandsons. I can find no descent on some of his children (Ebenezer and Richard), either indicating they are lost or they died early, but none of the ones included ever went to ME. Only a grandson of Joseph and Abigail, through their son Joseph, ended up in ME, and even then it was not Sanford. So, the idea that this individual ever ended up in ME seems quite wrong, if he had to do so after the Revolution. If he went to ME before the Revolution, he was there before the earliest settlers, and the records of this move are lost. More likely, Levi's report was a confusion of some sort, and even his own wording indicates that he was uncertain of this Joseph's fate. Parents: Richard TEMPLE-105 and Sarah PARLING-5061.

Spouse: Abigail STEARNS-437. Abigail STEARNS and Joseph TEMPLE were married on 28 November 1717 in Concord, Middlesex, MA.70309,70310 Children were: Abigail TEMPLE-126, Joseph TEMPLE-840, Sarah TEMPLE-127, Ebenezer TEMPLE-841, Richard TEMPLE-842, Samuel TEMPLE-843, Elijah TEMPLE-845, Thomas TEMPLE-844.


Colonel Joseph TEMPLE9564,102282 was born in 1699 in Bristol, Bristol, England, United Kingdom.49886,102283 Year is established through the will of Joseph Temple, his father, proven 16 May 1699, naming his unborn child. He immigrated before 1722 to VA.102276 He came to Virginia as an attorney for some Bristol merchants who had established an iron works in Essex County. This is cited in Lucy Temple's William Temple, based on a deed dated 22 Oct 1722. The first grant to Joseph Temple was 14 Sep 1726, for 1000 acres in Spotsylvania County, VA. In 1722 he was an attorney for Bristol merchants at their iron works in VA.5135 Joseph moved about 1727 in "Presque Isle", King William, VA.102272 Eventually received grants for about 10,000 acres in Northern Virginia. He died between 1740 and 1743 at the age of 41 in "Presque Isle", King William, VA.102271 He was a merchant in Bristol Parish, Prince George, VA.9564,102271 Some sources, particularly Burke's "Landed Gentry" of 1886, apparently incorrectly have him the second son of Sir William Temple, of Bishopstrow House, Warminster, Wiltshire, England. That Sir William was close to the throne under Charles II. In any case, the "Hunting Cup" which was made in about 1680, has remained in his family.

To add to the confusion, Levi Temple incorrectly assigned a birth date of 1666 to Joseph, the husband of Anne Arnold, when that date was clearly that of his father. Lucy Temple's "William Temple" gives the correct placement of Joseph and his father with their respective wives.

The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. XVIII, pp. 88-90, gives a list of the children of Joseph and Anne (Arnold) Temple, which includes Mollie, who married Col. Thomas Elliott, and Nancy, who married John Fleet of King and Queen Co., VA, and died 7 May 1754, but excludes James and Ann. Parents: Joseph TEMPLE-34850 and Hannah LISTON-34851.

Spouse: Anne ARNOLD-16128. Anne ARNOLD and Colonel Joseph TEMPLE were married before 1726.9565,9566,9567 The Vital Records of Three Burned Counties indicates that the marriage of Anne Arnold and Joseph Temple appeared in a newspaper published 10 Feb 1737. If this was even close to the actual date of marriage, then Joseph either had another wife, or they had many children out of wedlock. If the date is very wrong (and they were married before the birth of the first child), then the release of the news article in 1737 does not make sense. Children were: Ann TEMPLE-4456, Colonel Joseph TEMPLE-4448, William TEMPLE-4450, Colonel Benjamin TEMPLE-4452, Sarah (Sally) TEMPLE-4451, Hannah TEMPLE-4454, Captain Liston TEMPLE-4449, Col. Samuel Francis TEMPLE-4453, Martha (Mollie) TEMPLE-4455, James TEMPLE-4458, Nancy TEMPLE-115002.


Joseph TEMPLE1913,102284 was born on 28 August 1709 in Stow, Middlesex, MA.37185,48674 Specific date from Nancy Teachout Gardiner. The History Of Dummerston, VT, said he was born in 1718. He died about 1780 at the age of 71 in Dummerston, Windham, VT.48674 He was a cooper.12724 In old age, lived with a son in Dummerston. Parents: Dr. Richard TEMPLE-33 and Mary BARKER-4962.

Spouse: Mary LAUGHTON-87. Mary LAUGHTON and Joseph TEMPLE were married on 3 December 1739 in Concord, Middlesex, MA.27297,30559,30560,36379,48674,48675 Wife's brother Samuel was one of first settlers in Dummerston.

Joseph TEMPLE28055,53711 was born on 31 December 1720 in Concord, Middlesex, MA.22095,53711,58270,102285 The Stearns Genealogy ascribes Joseph to the other set of Joseph Temple and Abigail Stearns. He died in 1760 at the age of 40.53711 Based on research by Sally Eaton, his death date is known from a guardianship record for Joseph's 15 year old son, also Joseph (b 1745). This guardianship may have occurred at some time after the death of Joseph, so the precise date is uncertain. That this Joseph is the son of Joseph and Abigail STEARNS, son of Abraham and not Richard is in Danny D. Smith's 1992 compilation of his own ancestry. This apparently corrects an earlier error in Levi Temple's Some Temple Pedigrees. Parents: Joseph TEMPLE-130 and Abigail STEARNS-437.

Spouse: Sarah MC KINNEY-910. Sarah MC KINNEY and Joseph TEMPLE were married on 6 June 1744 in Concord, Middlesex, MA.35223,53711,53712,53713 Filed intention in Westford, MA. Children were: Luce TEMPLE-29609, Captain Joseph TEMPLE-911, Reverend Levi TEMPLE-912.


Colonel Joseph TEMPLE40880,102286 was born about 1730 in King and Queen Co., VA.40880,76757 He lived in "Chatham Hill", King and Queen, VA about 1750.100024 Joseph built "Chatham Hill" near the bridge at Ayletts, Virginia. He Granted 460 acres in St. John Parish on 14 July 1757 in Pasquotank Co., NC.102287 Grant from Lord Granville. Joseph served in the military in 1758.102288 He was a Captain of the Rangers. Some sources credit this service with his father, although the disparity in their ages argues more for this Joseph than his father. He member of the King & Queen County Committee of Safety in 1774/5 in King and Queen Co., VA.100024,102289 Member of the Society of Cincinnati. He appeared in the census in 1787 in King and Queen Co., VA.100024 Appeared with himself and two males 16-21, who were likely to have been Humphrey and Joseph. Joseph appeared in the census in 1790 in VA.100024 Listed with 6 whites in the household, but no designation of sex. He appeared in the census in 1810 in King and Queen Co., VA.100024 Appeared with himself, over age 45, and 1 male 16-26. Also shown were 2 females, 26-45, one of whom may have been his daughter Elizabeth. He died on 15 December 1819 at the age of 89 in "Chatham Hill", King and Queen, VA.40880,100024 Rise of the Temples incorrectly gives abt 1790. Joseph Member of the Society of Cincinnati. The surrender at Yorktown, VA, occurred on Temple Farm, being land probably owned by Joseph or his sons. He was listed as living on the north side of the North Anna River in St. George's Parish of Spotsylvania County.

The actual number of children is disputed. There is proof for James, Joseph, Thomas, Humphrey and John, and circumstantial evidence for the others. Parents: Colonel Joseph TEMPLE-4447 and Anne ARNOLD-16128.

Spouse: Mary (Molly) HILL-4519.

Joseph TEMPLE1913,10428,37184,102290 was born on 3 August 1732 in Marlborough, Middlesex, MA.74554,74675,102290,102291 May have been born in Marlboro, MA, and some sources give the date as 30 Aug. He served in the military in 1756.102290 Served in French & Indian War. He moved after 1756 in Shrewsbury, Worcester, MA.2985 Joseph served in the military in 1780.1913,102292,102293 Served in the Revolutionary War for 3 months. Mustered into Col Cook's Regiment, Capt Thomas Lawson's Company. Appears in a list of soldiers from Tolland Co., CT. Also said to have been a private in Captain William Howe's company, Col. John Rand's regiment, entering service 17 Jul 1780, and discharged 10 Oct 1780. The problem is the common name, as multiple Joseph Temples served. He died in 1796 at the age of 64 in Shrewsbury, Worcester, MA.13426 Joseph Temple served in the French and Indian War of 1756, and was a training and alarm soldier of Grafton, MA in 1757, under the command of Capt. Samuel Warren. Joseph Temple also served in the Revolutionary War for three months in 1780. Referred to in Pension Files as living in Shrewsbury, Worcester, MA at enlistment, and applying there for pension 6 Sep 1832 aged 70.

A number of secondary sources give his children as 7 - with a second Mary born 22 Aug 1782. I am relatively sure this is some kind of confusion, since the earlier Mary had not died and was married. Parents: Abraham TEMPLE-165 and Elizabeth STRATTON-170.

Spouse: Mary WHITTEMORE-6765. Mary WHITTEMORE and Joseph TEMPLE were married on 28 October 1756 in Grafton, Worcester, MA.11760,102290,102294 Filed intention on 4 Sep 1756 in Lancaster, MA.

Joseph TEMPLE Jr.24756,42633,74703,102296 was born on 23 December 1743 in Worcester, Worcester, MA.12724,37185 He moved before 1770 in Dummerston, Windham, VT.102297 He served in the military between 1777 and 1783 in VT.27899,102298 Shows up in DAR register as a Private in Vermont Capt Fish's Company in Revolutionary War.

He was a private in Capt. Josiah Fish's Company of Colonel Samuel Fletcher's Battalion from beginning of campaign of 1781 to June 30. Received 5 pounds one shilling and four pence; also served from 1 July to 18 Nov 1781, under the same commander and received 9 pounds 4 shillings; served 138 days in 1781. Says he was wounded in Revolutionary War at Westminster, VT, 13 Mar 1775. Joseph escaped a bullet wound by means of a novel life-preserver, a quart pewter basin in which he carried his food. It was struck twice by bullets which left their marks upon it. He was knocked down in the affray and, for a time, was supposed to be dead. His skull was fractured on the left side of the forehead, and the scar remained during life. It was kept as a relic in the family of his descendants many years, until a wily peddler crushed in his hand and then bought it for a trifle. Joseph died on 23 March 1832 at the age of 88 in Dummerston, Windham, VT.42635,102299 Some claim he is buried in Dummerston Center Cemetery, Dummerston, VT, but others say in the cemetery between the old Murdock farm and Newfane, VT. Born at or near Worcester, & lived primarily in Dummerston. He was one of three settlers; is said to have got deed of 100 acres by lottery ticket that cost 5 or 7 shillings; gave up 30 acres for taxes, thinking nine dollars worth more than the land. Farmer, charter member of the Congregational Church. Selected text for his funeral service as Luke 23:28. In 1811, he deeded the farm to his son Joseph, he to give daughter, Lois, $50 and a cow, and something to the other children, adding, "It being the wish of an affectionate Parent that their children may continue to live in love and friendship when he shall be no more." (See History of Eastern Vermont, page 234.)

When he settled in the wilderness of Vermont he walked from Worcester, bringing his few possessions in a pack on his shoulders, his first work was to cut a large hollow Basswood tree for a place to sleep in, building a fire near it at night to keep off the wild beasts. Once, when passing through the woods a violent storm began to blow down trees. He hurried on and soon saw the forest levelled behind him. He married Elizabeth Wilder and had 2 children who died young. Second wife, Lois Hubbard Taylor, chose 2 Cor 12:9 for her funeral.

Reported in The Rise of the Temples to have owned 100 acres. Parents: Joseph TEMPLE-86 and Mary LAUGHTON-87.
