James Allen (Allen) TEMPLE(S) was born on 9 February 1890 in Greely, Cherokee, GA.62814,69180,79578,122655 Gave Jan 1889 in 1900. Gave 1894 in 1930. In June 1900 he was a farm laborer in Pine Log, Bartow, GA.79578 In April 1910 he was a farm laborer in Salacoa, Cherokee, GA.69180 In 1917 James was a farmer in Waleska, Cherokee, GA.122655 He appeared in the census in January 1920 in Salacoa, Cherokee, GA.74811 In April 1930 he was a farmer in Salacoa, Cherokee, GA.62814 James died. Given as James Allen in his WWI draft registration, he appears in all other places as Allen. He was illiterate and gave his mark in his WWI draft registration. Parents: John Andrew TEMPLES-49005 and Elizabeth Jane (Lizzie) WHITE-49022.


James Allen (Jim) TEMPLE(S)14026 was born on 22 June 1839 in Tuscaloosa Co., AL.12497,18838,40153,40157,46852,46853,46854,71432 As John A. Temple, gave Aug 1846 in 1900. Gave 1837 in 1860, and seemed to give IL. He appeared in the census in October 1850 in Marshall Co., MS.71434 In August 1860 he was a miller in Anderson Co., TX.40153 Enumerated next door to his brother John. James served in the military in 1864 in Eastland Co., TX. Served in the Eastland County, TX, Frontier Militia, in Capt Singleton (Sing) Gilbert's company - the "Minute Men Company." In August 1870 he was a farmer in Hill Co., TX.40157 In June 1880 he was a farmer in Wilson Co., TX.46853 In June 1900 James was a farmer in Menard Co., TX.46854 He died on 7 February 1923 at the age of 83 in Brady, Mc Culloch, TX.14026,18838,46852 Buried in Live Oak Cemetery, Brady, McCullough, TX. His gravestone gives his name without the terminal S. I think he was enumerated in 1900 as John A. Temple in Menard Co., TX, based on the nearly exact duplication of his wife's and childrens' names, birth dates and places. His parents were from TN (father) and AL (mother) in 1900. He is given as John A. Temple in 1900, but the names and dates for his wife and children (except for Donna/Daniel) are identical to those of James Allen and Nancy Temple. Parents: William Byston TEMPLE-32329 and Mary Jane SUTTON-32336.

Spouse: Peninia HENSHAW-30859. Peninia HENSHAW and James Allen (Jim) TEMPLE(S) were married on 10 July 1859 in Tyler, Smith, TX.18838,25158,40158,40159 Children were: TEMPLE-32348, Sarah Elizabeth (Bettie) TEMPLE-30861, John Byston (Byston) TEMPLE-30860, D. Mary TEMPLE-30862.

Spouse: Hannah Dorcas MILLER-30866. Hannah Dorcas MILLER and James Allen (Jim) TEMPLE(S) were married after 1871.14026 They14026 were divorced before 1875. The divorce is assumed, as is the marriage of Hannah to James. Both require proof. Children were: Millie Augustine TEMPLE-30867.

Spouse: Nancy Ann KING-30855. Nancy Ann KING and James Allen (Jim) TEMPLE(S) were married on 1 December 1875.46854 Children were: Mattie Jane TEMPLE-30869, Anna Rose (Annie) TEMPLE-30870, Minnie Catherine (Minnie) TEMPLE-30872, Dona Zelma TEMPLE-30858, Bertha Sophonia (Bertha) TEMPLE-30871.


James D. TEMPLE(S)31145 was born on 24 October 1833 in TN.13785,31150,122656,122657 He appeared in the census in September 1850 in Hamilton Co., TN.122656 Enumerated with the William and Tennessee Lewis family, of no known relationship. However, I think they are his maternal grandparents. In June 1870 he was a retail grocer in Spring Place, Murray, GA.31150 In June 1880 James was a hotel keeper in Spring Place, Murray, GA.13785 He died on 30 November 1896 at the age of 63 in Chatsworth, Murray, GA.122657 Buried in Spring Place Cemetery, Chatsworth, GA. He has reference number RLT # (None).4455 He is not James Dobson Temple, despite similar places, given the difference in wives and ages. His parents were from NC (father) and VA (mother). Appears with the terminal S in 1870 but not in 1850. He was apparently not enumerated in 1860.

He may be related to Daniel and Margaret Temple(s), also of Hamilton Co., TN, and enumerated nearby in 1850, and may be their son. In Hamilton Co., TN in 1850, another set of Temples was enumerated - the family of Charles and Mahala Temples; Daniel and Mahala were Charles' parents. Charles and Mahala had a daughter named Amanda, born about the same time as James' daughter. More importantly, James was enumerated in 1850 in the household of William and Tennessee Lewis. Daniel and Margaret had two children, named William and Tennessee. I think that points to Margaret as being a Lewis, or Tennessee was a temple and related closely to Daniel.. However, this needs to be researched and proven. William and Tennessee's ages were such that Tennessee could be a younger sister of Daniel, or William a younger brother of Margaret.

Spouse: Alice FARMER-129220. Alice FARMER and James D. TEMPLE(S) were married on 4 January 1870.31148,31154 Children were: Walter TEMPLE-139862.

Victoria Jacquilina (Sister Vic) HEARTSILL and James Dobson (Dobson) TEMPLE(S) were married on 8 September 1856 in Louisville, Blount, TN.39527,39532 Records disagree. The original marriage register gives 8 Sep, but a typed transcription makes it 18 Sep, which is a mistake. They39527,39532 were divorced before January 1862. The divorce has not been proved, but since his first wife died some 6 years later, something along those lines must have happened. Children were: Isaac Taylor (Taylor) TEMPLE-24503, Isadora M.

Neither is a primary source, so it is hard to know which is closer to the correct date. In July 1870 he was a domestic servant in Jefferson Twp., Washington, IN.122661 Enumerated in the household of Abram and Mary Hening, of no known relationship.

His parents were both from GA. Given with the terminal S in his WWI draft registration. He apparently had two wives - Velma, who was the mother of the children through 1918, and Alabama who was his second wife. The rationale is that Alabama shows up in the 1920 census but James claimed his wife's name was Velma in his 1918 WWI draft registration. Parents: Richard Woodson (Woodson) TEMPLES-72482 and Edith Franklin (Fannie) VANN-72488.

Some secondary sources list his name as John Frederick Temple, but he gave himself as James Fred Temples in his WWI draft registration. The person in the draft registration was born on the same date, and had a wife named Mary Lizzie Temples, and they lived in Ingalls, AR. I am unsure how the confusion arose over his first name, but he called himself James Fred, quite clearly. Parents: William T. (Billy) TEMPLE-20874 and Dora G. (Dora) MC CLAIN-20879.

Spouse: Mary Elizabeth (Lizzie) JOHNSON-26169.

In her information provided for his death certificate, his wife said his parents were A.F. ad Eva (Ferguson) Temples, both from MS.

His family had apparently moved by 1870, since he and his family were not among the Temples in Jackson, MS, in the 1870 census. There was a J.H. Temple in Attala Co., MS, in 1870, whose birth date was 1867, and his parents were A.F. and Mary A. Temple, but this was apparently James Harbert Temple, son of Anderson Flowers Temple. Parents: A.F.

Identification of Jesse T. Temple(s)' unknown wife as Bettie May Mc Murray is based on circumstantial evidence in the 1940 census.
