I can't help with the parents of Temple but I am definitely interested in comparing notes on the children of Temple and Melissa.
I have that Amanda Tillis married William Bennett Bartlett.It is my understanding from their ggranddaugther that Amanda died shortly after child birth of their second daughter in 1876.
I also found that another daughter, Cynthia, married William J. Moseley in Covington Co.Then after his death in 1895 Cynthia married Elijah G. Padgett. After his death she and her children moved to Gaskin, Walton Co., FL where she is buried.
Does anyone know more about the other children? Or about Melissa's parents?I may have more information on the Lindsey connection.
