P.D. Logan, PM wrote to the Special Examiner of Topeka, Kansas that "Temperance A. Bishop died in the spring of 1883 but as to the exact date I cannot tell you" ================================= Pension/land record state Temperance A; DC for Minerva says Mary Temperance. I have looked at another ref: for the pension and it asks "maiden name" ...Temperance NORTHINGTON. So...it would appear Temperance LINDSEY is a different person, but think the LINDSEY family is related somehow. I do believe Sam/Temperance BISHOP are the parents of Martha.
