I have located a biographical sketch in the book "A Biographical History of Central Kansas" published in 1902 by The Lewis Publishing Company, New York and Chigago, that covers a man named Thomas J. Templer. He reports to be the son of William Templer and Mary J. Phillips of Adams County, OH.
Thomas J. Templer was born 3 July 1841, died 6 Augut 1917, and is buried in the Elmwood Cemetery in Kansas City, MO. Beside him is his son, Charles W. Templer, born 1869, died 1892 in a drowning accident.
Can anyone tell me anything more about William Templer and Mary J. Phillips. She is reported to be the daughter of Howard Phillips of Adams County, OH.
As a Templer researcher, I try to cover all possibilities. While I have no reason to believe this is one of my Templers, it is indeed possible since I do have several in OH in this time period.
