John W. TEMPLES Sr.4826,124281 was born on 6 January 1890 in Minvale, DeKalb, AL.56296,56297,68868,68870,68871,124282 At the time, Minvale was probably in Henry County, if his recollection in his WWI draft registration was correct. Veteran's records reflect the date in 1890. His widow, who made the application for his headstone, put the date in 1888, which also appears on his grave marker. In censuses, it was put as early as 1884. He appeared in the census in June 1900 in Newville, Henry, AL.56296 Enumerated with his grandmother. In April 1910 he was a farm laborer in Newville, Henry, AL.56297 Enumerated as a boarder with Moses L. Brackin next door to his mother and sister. John served in the military between 1917 and 1919.68871,123689 Enlisted 21 Sep 1917. As a wagoner in the Supply Company, 117th Field Artillery, 31st Division, he departed Hoboken aboard the Duca Degle Abruzzi on 14 Oct 1918. Discharged 12 Jan 1919.
Service # 1355992. Pension # 1 747 850. In 1917 he was a farmer in Minvale, DeKalb, AL.124282 In January 1920 he was a farmer in Henry Co., AL.36145 In April 1930 John was a farmer in Cowarts, Houston, AL.68868 He lived in Webb, Houston, AL in November 1936.35138 In April 1940 he was a farmer in Houston Co., AL.68870 John lived Route # 2 in Ashford, Houston, AL in December 1942.124040 He died on 16 December 1956 at the age of 66 in Columbia, Houston, AL.68871,123329 Died at home after an unspecified brief illness. Buried in Shiloh Cemetery, Columbia, AL. He has reference number RLT # (None).124283 His parents were both from AL in 1930.

Not all the children of John and Eula were accounted for in the obituary of Wilson Temples. Specifically, Hilda Temples was not mentioned, and it appears that the Howard mentioned was given as James H. in the 1930 census. There is a further discrepancy, in that J.C. Temples was said to have predeceased Wilson, but he actually died a year after Wilson. Also, Betty Joyce should have appeared with the family in 1930, but did not. However, the locations and timing are too compelling to consider them separate families.

His mother was given as Ollie Temple in his transshipment papers to Europe in WW1, and she was living in Newville, AL.

He was illiterate and gave his mark in his WWI draft registration. This is in part the source for the confusion over his birth year. Parents: Ethalinda Olive (Olive\Ollie) TEMPLES-85293.
