Templeton Family History


Records and Descendents of the Templetons Who First Settled in What is now Laurens County, South Carolina Together with Brief Sketches of Other Templetons Who Settled in Other Parts of South Carolina and Other States

David Templeton, Sr. (d. 1817) is the first Templeton listed in this excellent family history. Documents show that David Templeton, Sr. took an active part in the Revolutionary War. From the appendix: “In addition to the first Templeton (David Templeton) in Laurens County, L. B. also provides information on the Templetons who arrived in November 1772 from Ireland. Based on land grants issued in 1772, these were Robert, James, Martha, and Agnes.” Each Templeton and each Templeton descendent has been given an identification number. Entries include number, full name, and provide a variety of information, which may include any of the following: date of birth, place of birth, parent’s names, education, military service, occupation, date of marriage, name of spouse, names of children, date of death, date of burial, place of burial, and more. Entries vary greatly in length; some offer a good bit of biographical information. Facsimile reprints of original documents; transcriptions of wills; a description of the Templeton Coat of Arms; and, references to land grants, deeds, Bible records, and other sources augment the entries. A new appendix by Ron Templeton, which includes information on relationships to the Templetons of North Carolina, and an updated full-name index add to the value of this edition.
