I was hoping you would see my post!This is wonderful!Like I said, I'm really just getting started, so I began with my Adams' line since I knew so very little about them (I'm ashamed to say) which includes the Templetons.Thank you so much for the Templeton information.Yes, I would love to know much more about them.
In the beginning when I was trying to find out the father of my Great Grandfather Willie Adams, it took me months to find out it was Samuel P. Adams and that he was possibly from Virginia.Then months and months later to find out Eliza's name - including her maiden name!I found out recently from a lady here in Morgan County where they are buried as well as one of their sons, Robert.Except for Robert, Samuel and Eliza only have fieldstones for their markers - "if" I found the right graves.I have asked and looked everywhere I know to look for the actual location and also for birth and death dates for both of them.I have checked with the historical society, the genealogy section of the library, the Church that joins the cemetery - nothing!Maybe where I'm so new at this I just don't know how to go about it correctly.
No, the way I understand it, Willie and his family lived in the Caney/Cannel City/White Oak areas.I found Eliza through the census records here, but lost here after the 1920 Morgan County Census.
I remember seeing a picture of Jim and Mack Templeton on Lacy Creek in Morgan County in a road workers photograph from the early 1930's - I think.I believe it was also in the KENTUCKY EXPLORER Magazine at one time.
Sorry, I've went on so long, just excited!I would really love to know much, much more.Please feel free to contact me here or my personal email address.Again, thank you so very much!Have a great day!
