Private John D Templeton
D Company

He was born in 1844 the son of John and Ann Hilda ‘Hillie’ (McDaniel) Templeton.

He got shot in the hand at either Shiloh or Murfreesboro.

The local radio station at McMinnville used to sign off every night with 'Dixie' and he is remembered for crying at the sound of the song.

He married Sarah Catherine Garrett, she was born 1851 and died 1932. The daughter of  Solomon and Sarah ‘Sallie’ (Cassey) Garrett. They had eight children: Mary Lee, Thomas Lavander, Thomas, Della F., Hila Anne, Carrie D., James S. and William Walter Templeton.

He died in 1932 and is buried together with his wife in the Shellsford Cemetery, Warren County, TN.

He is buried next to John H. Savage.

(Although his daughter believed that he was a member of the Regiment and put 16th Tennessee on his grave stone, his great grandson has done the research that puts him down as most likely being a member of the 35th Tennessee Infantry.)
