John William (Johnie) TEMPLE(S)5923 was born on 5 August 1895 in Shelbyville, Shelby, TX.5924,119611,122785 He appeared in the census in June 1900 in Shelby Co., TX.5924 In April 1910 he was a laborer in Shelby Co., TX.119611 In 1917 John was a farmer in Shelbyville, Shelby, TX.122785 He served in the military in 1918/9.122786,122787 Dates may not be inclusive.

His service number was 2228063. He died. Appeared with the terminal S in 1910. Parents: Christopher R. (Kit) TEMPLE-19994 and Missouri -20018.


John William (Johnnie) TEMPLE(S)24149 was born on 20 September 1920 in GA.146 His enlistment papers claimed 1920 in his first and 1919 in his second. CA death records gave the date as 20 Sep, but his widow Zora said it was 7 Sep 1920 in his veteran's headstone application. He served in the military between 1937 and 1946.946,7448,122788,122789,122790 He enlisted twice, for unknown reasons. First, as Johnnie Temples, he enlisted on 8 Aug 1940 at Fort Benning, GA, as a private assigned to the Panama Canal Department, where he served with Company B, 84th Armed Medium Battalion. He claimed residence in Muscogee Co., GA. Service # 14012493. It was under this name and service # that his widow, Zora Adell Temples, applied for his veteran's headstone fur burial in Wheatland, CA.

Then, as John W. Temple, he enlisted on 11 Aug 1940 at Fort McPherson, Atlanta, GA, as a private in the Coast Artillery Corps or Army Mine Planter Service, for the Panama Canal Department. He claimed residence in Polk Co., GA. Discharged 12 Oct 1943. Service # 14006873. Pension # 355 41 57.

In Feb 1945, medical records indicate he had served between 5 and 10 years, putting his enlistment as early as 1935 and late as 1940, but that needs to be tempered by his being only 15 in 1935. So, his enlistment date, at its earliest was about 1936 or 1937, as shown. When he enlisted, he was in AL, FL, GA, MS, NC, SC, or TN. He served in the field artillery. He was admitted to treatment at the Fort Sill, OK, station hospital for acute nasopharygitis in Feb 1945. Treated and released back to duty in Feb 1945. Service # 14006873. He lived in Polk Co., GA in 1940.946 John died on 2 May 1961 at the age of 40 in Colusa, Colusa, CA.146,7448 Buried in Wheatland Cemetery, Wheatland, CA. Given with and without the terminal S in his military records - his original enlistment was as a Temples, but he later went by Temple. His widow, Zora Adell, went by Temple when she filled out the application for his veteran's headstone, but that application noted his military records were in the name of Temples. His having enlisted twice, once under each surname, didn't help keep things straight.

There are a large number of John W. Temples of comparable age, but none were found with his age and a source state of AL, FL, GA, MS, NC, SC, or TN. If he enlisted underage, he may have run away from home, so the enlistment state may not be his actual home state.

Spouse: Zora Adell (Zora) -157214. Zora Adell (Zora) and John William (Johnnie) TEMPLE(S) were married before 1961.

Jones TEMPLE(S)6818,122791 was born in 1769 in Richland Co., SC.122792 Death records gave VA. He moved about 1797 in Screven Co., GA.13133,116715 He moved in 1805 in Effingham Co., GA.13133 Jones moved before 1810 in Tattnall Co., GA.13133 He moved before 1816 in Jasper Co., GA.13133 In 1819 he was a butcher in Savannah, Chatham, GA.122792 Jones died on 12 March 1819 at the age of 50 in Savannah, Chatham, GA.122792 Fell off his horse seven miles from town.

Jones TEMPLE(S) was born about 1800. He mentioned in court records in 1822 in Tattnall Co., GA.122793 His existence is inferred. His father died in 1819, and could not have married Ann Veazey. Parents: Jones TEMPLE(S)-17176 and Sarah -17177.

Spouse: Ann VEAZEY-17180. Ann VEAZEY and Jones TEMPLE(S) were married on 19 January 1832 in Troup Co., GA.13133,122794,122795 In Troup Co., GA, Marriage Book A, p. 44. Children were: Elisha J. (Elias) TEMPLE(S)-32926.

Joseph TEMPLE(S) was born in June 1870 in Gulf, Chatham, NC.7147,56921 Enumerated as 2 months in Aug 1870.Gave 1871 in 1880. He appeared in the census in August 1870 in Gulf, Chatham, NC.56922 Enumerated with his grandfather. He appeared in the census in June 1880 in Gulf, Chatham, NC.56921 Enumerated as the son of Mary, the age given for the Mary with whom he was staying indicates it was more likely to have been his grandmother than his mother. Joseph died. Appears with the terminal S in 1880.

Joseph may be confused with another Joseph, son of Josiah and Mary - as he is part of the whole confusion over Josiah and his wives. He is placed with this family based on the 1880 census. Parents: Joseph TEMPLE-61618 and Mary Elizabeth WEEKS-35065.


Joseph Baylor TEMPLE(S)7688 was born in 1830 in KY.35543,35544,35545 In July 1860 he was a carpenter in Boyle Co., KY.35544 In August 1870 he was a carpenter in Boyle Co., KY.35545 In June 1880 Joseph was a railroad laborer in Eel River, Clay, IN.35543 He died. He has reference number RLT # (None).1882 Appears with the terminal S in 1870. I think he is related to Robert Temple, husband of Cornett, the latter both born in KY. Robert and Cornett's daughter, Martha Jane, married a Hall (same as Joseph and Elizabeth's daughter Nancy Jane), and both daughters (though about a generation apart) ended up being buried in the same cemetery in Lizton, IN. Joseph and Robert and their wives were all from KY.

TEMPLE-51271, Charles Widney TEMPLE-51243, Martha C. TEMPLE-51287.


Joseph C. TEMPLE(S) was born in 1821 in SC.63335 In October 1850 he was a painter in Jacksonville, Duval, FL.63335 He has reference number RLT # (None).1399 Assumed to be part of the family of John and Ann Temple.

Joseph Henry (Henry) TEMPLE(S) was born on 7 September 1914 in Broadway, Harnett, NC.222,63759,63761,63762 Gave Jun 1914 in 1920. He appeared in the census in January 1920 in Averasboro, Harnett, NC.63759 In April 1940 he was a farmer in Stewart's Creek, Harnett, NC.63761 Joseph lived RFD 1 in Bunnlevel, Harnett, NC in October 1940.63762 He lived in Lillington Twp., Harnett, NC in 1947.37433 He lived in Erwin, Harnett, NC in 1955.7842 Joseph died on 21 November 1977 at the age of 63 in Bunnlevel, Harnett, NC.222,122796 Buried in Friendship Cemetery, Harnett Co., NC. I think he is Henry, b 1914, son of Charlie T. and Alice (Richardson) Temple(s), but since the 1920 census gave his birth as Jun 1914, it may be that Joseph Henry and Henry are two different people. Joseph Henry was the one whose birthday was 7 Sep 1914 and also had a mother named Alice, according to his WWII draft registration.

Appeared without the terminal S in his WWII draft registration.

This family is composed from birth records; two children (Joseph and Jo Ann) were credited to Joseph Henry Temple; the third, Judy, was credited to Allison Chalmers Temple. Based on the middle name of the first of these, Joseph Chalmers Temple, I have interpreted Allison Chalmers Temple as the mother of these children. There are problems with this interpretation. First, I find no record of their marriage, and the only Allison Temple I can find is a black male b 1885. Also, the obituary of Marion Eve (Lunsford) Temple says she was the wife of Joseph H. Temple, and she was b 1921. While she and Joseph had three children, only one (Joey) bears resemblance to this family. Parents: Charlie Thomas TEMPLE(S)-17075 and Alice RICHARDSON-17082.

Appears with the terminal S in 1870 and 1910. Given as Lafayette in 1860 and 1900. Name is spelled Lafate in the 1900 census.

It is not clear if his wife Helen P was also the same as the one enumerated in 1910 as Parlie (which may be what the P stood for). Parents: Jeremiah (Jerry) TEMPLE-52831 and Jemima UNGER-52832.

Spouse: Parlie -52837. Parlie and Joseph S. TEMPLE(S) were married in 1852 in TN.6283
