TEMPLES, Private, 13 Jul 1861. Wounded at Sharpsburg, MD, 17 Sep 1862. He died on 17 November 1862 at the age of 38 in Sharpsburg, Washington, MD.123306,123307 Killed at the Battle of Sharpsburg. Buried in Stonewall Confederate Cemetery, Winchester, VA. He has reference number RLT # U279.21017 When Benjamin was killed, his children, and specifically John Roland, Martin B., Preston B., Henrietta A., Florence K., and Georgia, were placed under the guardianship of Joseph P. Glover. Joseph Glover, then age 35, had had John Temples, Benjamin's father, in his household in the 1850 census, and was the husband of Benjamin's sister, Julia. Temple People, Vol. II, indicates that the document in Hart Co., GA, giving custody to Joseph and Julia was, however, dated before Benjamin's death, being dated 2 Feb 1863, at which time Benjamin was very much alive. I believe that what actually happened is that Elizabeth, his wife, must have died in late 1862 or early 1863 (before February), and because he was away at the war, the children were made the wards of Joseph and Julia.
