Hello. Would you be willing to share?
I am looking for Temples in the 37th Mississippi.
My earliest ancestor in the United States was Wm. G. Temple who was dropped off in Virginia after being taken from a prison in Scotland when he was just 16. We know his parents were English. We even know that some of the family was wiped out during the American Revolution by some of those hired Germans who fought for the British.
My cousin who lives in North Carolina says that some off shoots of the Temple family went into Mississippi and Louisiana while ours went on to Arkansas back in the late 1840's. We believe that some of the bunch used the surname of Temples and I have even found my own great grandfather as Temples.
In particular, we are searching for information on Needham Temples and his brothers, William and James. There was one more son, but I cannot think of his name. Needham was with some sort of guard unit, I believe and we know he did not live through the war.
I would love to see the information you have gathered and offered to share.
