Joseph TEMPLE served in the military before 1864.85549 Served as a private in the 90th Pennsylvania infantry. He died on 15 December 1864 in Salisbury, Rowan, NC.85549 Died of chronic dysentery. 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.85550 Buried in Alton Cemetery, Alton, IL, Plot: Block 26 Lot 4, on 12 Jun 1879.

Joseph TEMPLE83627 was born on 3 February 1666 in Bishopstrow, Wiltshire, England, United Kingdom.41894,69292,85553,85554,85555,85556 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 1671.41894 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 33.85557 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.41894 Children were: John TEMPLE-109146, William TEMPLE-34852, Mary TEMPLE-34853, Colonel Joseph TEMPLE-4447.


Joseph TEMPLE7520,85558 was born on 6 May 1688 in Concord, Middlesex, MA.65711 He died before 1734 at the age of 46.7520 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 TEMPLE1855,85558,85559,85560 was born on 28 August 1694 in Concord, Middlesex, MA.85561,85562 He moved in 1729 in Westford, Middlesex, MA.23999 He died.72115 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).85559 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.59003,59004 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 TEMPLE8960,85563 was born in 1699 in Bristol, Bristol, England, United Kingdom.41894,85564 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.85557 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.4942 Joseph moved about 1727 in "Presque Isle", King William, VA.85554 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.85553 He was a merchant in Bristol Parish, Prince George, VA.8960,85553 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 1726.8961,8962,8963 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.


Joseph TEMPLE1855,85565 was born on 28 August 1709 in Stow, Middlesex, MA.31525,40936 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.40936 He was a cooper.11499 In old age, lived with a son in Dummerston. Parents: Dr. Richard TEMPLE-33 and Mary BARKER-4962.

Joseph TEMPLE23999,45039 was born on 31 December 1720 in Concord, Middlesex, MA.19097,45039,48796,85566 The Stearns Genealogy ascribes Joseph to the other set of Joseph Temple and Abigail Stearns. He died in 1760 at the age of 40.45039 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.29931,45039,45040,45041 Filed intention in Westford, MA. Children were: Luce TEMPLE-29609, Captain Joseph TEMPLE-911, Reverend Levi TEMPLE-912.


Colonel Joseph TEMPLE34602,85567 was born about 1730 in King and Queen Co., VA.34602,64242 He lived in "Chatham Hill", King and Queen, VA about 1750.83676 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.85568 Grant from Lord Granville. Joseph served in the military in 1758.85569 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.83676,85570 Member of the Society of Cincinnati. He appeared in the census in 1787 in King and Queen Co., VA.83676 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.83676 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.83676 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.34602,83676 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.

Joseph TEMPLE1855,9643,31524,85571 was born on 3 August 1732 in Marlboro, Middlesex, MA.62356,62471,85571,85572 May have been born in Marlboro, MA, and some sources give the date as 30 Aug. He served in the military in 1756.85571 Served in French & Indian War. He moved after 1756 in Shrewsbury, Worcester, MA.2941 Joseph served in the military in 1780.1855,85573,85574 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.12045 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.10736,85571,85575 Filed intention on 4 Sep 1756 in Lancaster, MA.

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. He was wounded in the battle skirmish at Westminster, Vermont, 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.36030,85580 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.

Joseph TEMPLE85587 was born in 1758 in "Chatham Hill", King and Queen, VA.85587,85588,85589 The 1758 date is from the Vital records of Three Burned Counties, and is thereby a bit suspicious. Rise of the Temples indicated a birth year prior to 1750. The 1810 census gave his range from 1765-1784. He appeared in the census between 1784 and 1787 in NC.85590 Appears in "District No. 6" with 1 male, 21-60 yrs, 4 males under 21 or above 60, 5 females of all ages, 2 black slaves 12-50, 2 black slaves under 12 or over 50. He appeared in the census in 1810 in King and Queen Co., VA.85589 Shows up as a male, age 26-45. Appears with 7 males born 1784-1794, and 1 male 1794 to 1800. Obviously, the relationships are unclear, but some may be his siblings, and others his sons. Joseph died in 1826 at the age of 68 in Pasquotank Co., NC.85587,85588 Confusion exists over his death date.

Other sources give Bowdoin, and specifically the part that became Sabattis, as in Danny Smith's Levi Temple genealogy.

Interview with son Joseph indicated that the date of his death was 8 Jun 1892. The Bowdoin vital records give 9 Jun 1882, and this accurately reflects his reported age of 95y 7m 27d.

Joseph TEMPLE71881 was born in 1799 in NC.1574,1576 He appeared in the census in 1820 in Pasquotank Co., NC.62085 Reported with 1 male 16-26 (himself), 1 male 0-10, one female 16-26 (Dolly) and one female 0-10. He appeared in the census in 1830 in Elizabeth City, Pasquotank, NC.62085 Joseph appeared in the census in 1840 in Pasquotank Co., NC.62085 Enumerated with 1 male 40-50 (himself), 3 males 5-10 and 1 0-5, 1 female 30-40 (Dolly), 1 female 10-15 and one 0-5. In September 1850 he was a farmer in Pasquotank Co., NC.1576 In August 1860 he was a farmer in Elizabeth City, Pasquotank, NC.1574 Joseph died before May 1870 at the age of 71. He has reference number RLT # 92i.5848 I suspect that Joseph may have been married twice. The reason is that the 1820 census gives him two children who were born between 1810 and 1820 - and even if they were born at the later end of that range, there was a very large gap between them and the next child in 1831. Also, Dolly and he appear to be about the same age (16-26) in the 1820 census, but by 1840, Joseph is in the 40-50 range, while Dolly is only in the 30-40 range. She could be fudging, but she could be a second (younger) wife. Parents: Joseph TEMPLE-5242 and Lucy -5314.

Joseph TEMPLE Sr.62511 was born on 23 February 1801 in PA.8637 Birth date seems incorrect given marriage date of parents. Temple/McNulty put the year as 1801, but other sources gave it in 1803, which makes more sense given their marriage date. He lived in Liberty, Adams, OH in 1830.85600 Appears in the 1830 Census.

Joseph died on 29 November 1870 at the age of 63. He has reference number RLT # 25i (?).22234 Identification of Joseph as the husband of Rebecca and the father of the children shown is based on the 1850 census and circumstantial evidence. It requires proof. Parents: John TEMPLE-5257 and Martha FOSTER-5258.

Spouse: Rebecca MALICK-42583. Rebecca MALICK and Joseph TEMPLE were married on 16 May 1829 in Clermont Co., OH.442,13725,43140 Date is also given as 7 May. Children were: Maria M. TEMPLE-42584, Theodore M. TEMPLE-42585, David Jasper (David) TEMPLE-42586, Martha J. TEMPLE-42587.


Joseph TEMPLE was born in 1808 in PA.20236,20237,23220,85603 In September 1850 he was a miller in Fallowfield, Washington, PA.20237 In July 1860 he was a miller in Nottingham Twp., Washington, PA.85603 In August 1870 Joseph was a miller in Snowden, Allegheny, PA.20236 In June 1880 he was a farmer in South Huntingdon, Westmoreland, PA.23220 He has reference number RLT # U4440.4542 I think he might be related to William in North Strabane in 1860. It may be that he had two wives, both Margarets. It is not clear what happened to his wife in 1860, since no marital status was given, but no wife appears. His parents were both from PA.

Liston died 6 years before Joseph was born. I think he may be the brother of Larkin Temples. It seems more likely, if a Liston Temple was his father, that it was Liston who married Harriett Robertson, who was born in VA, but lived in TN. Also, based only on timing and location, he may be related to Jeremiah Temple of Burke Co., NC and Wilson Co., TN.

From Danny Smith, "In 1912, this Joseph Temple was the eldest citizen in Richmond, Maine, and Elvira A. Webber, reporter to the Lewiston Journal, interviewed him. His account as related to the newspaper reporter appeared in that publication 26 October 1912.

"OLDEST TAX-PAYER IN RICHMOND: JOSEPH TEMPLE, WHO HAS JUST CELEBRATED HIS 88th BIRTHDAY, IS OF REVOLUTIONARY ANCESTRY

"Joseph Temple, whose photo taken this summer, accompanies this article, is probably the oldest tax-payer in the town of Richmond. Of this town he has been a resident many years, and the 23rd of the present October found him 88 summers young. He is hale, hearty and
merry, quick of motion, and still pliable of limb, as those who have driven by this autumn and found him in the top of his orchard trees gathering apples can testify. Mr. Temple's orchard has been his delight. He has made a business of caring for the trees and of grafting in different kinds of fruit specimens of which he exhibits with pride to chance callers.

"All his life he has been a worker, never idle a minute, and his smooth farm, no less than his orchard, give indications of this 'busy bee' existence. His right hand companion has been good health, and to such an extent that he is said never to have had a sick day or a
doctor in his life. This spring he made his garden, and the first of the harvesting season dug and put in his cellar 30 bushels of potatoes. Ten bushels of turnips followed, besides beets and other garden produce.

"Mr. Temple has worked for much of his life as a carpenter. He learned his trade of Robert George of Richmond, and many fine Richmond homes he built wholly or in part. He has also worked in various other places. The stairs in the old City Hall that recently burned in
Portland were built by him. He was married Sept. 3, 1857 in Roxbury by Rev. Thomas Anderson, and his wife was Kate V. Umberhind, the daughter of Deacon Umberhind of Richmond. Of their seven children, all but one were born in Richmond, that one in Bowdoin.

"Mr. Temple belongs to a long-lived family, and his ancestry hail from England. His father's name was Joseph, and his grandfather, Levi Temple, was of the seventh generation in a direct line from Abraham Temple of England, who according to a Temple genealogy, was the first Englishman that ever trod American soil.

[Note: Danny Smith explains that the last paragraph is an inaccurate report from Levi Daniel Temple's work.] Parents: Joseph TEMPLE-1110 and Elizabeth (Betsey) RICKER-1496.
