Of these eleven, I knewall but nine of them.
There is much, much more. In had thousands of details, records, etc, aback some more generations.
What is your connection toor interest in Allen G. Temple? I have no record of his having had children.
By the way I taught mathematics here atv West Virginia University 49 years and am now emeritus professor but still doing research and writing at the University.
