          Michael D. Templeton,  55, passed away July* 24, 2012.  Memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 13 at Community Hope Church, 723 Miami Ave., Kansas City, Kansas.
*Betty's note:  The U.S., Social Security Death Index, 1935-2014 gives a different death date:
          Name:  Michael D Templeton
          BORN:  12 Jul 1957
          Died:  24 Sep 2012
The 24 September date would be more compatible with the October 2nd publication of the obituary, but I have found no confirmation as to which date is correct.

Esteemed Aged Lady Dies At
Her Home in Noble Town-
ship Last Evening.
          Mrs. Mary A. Templeton,  81 years, four months and 20 days old, one of the widely known and highly esteemed women of the St. Paul community, wife of the late  Robert Templeton,  died at her home two miles south of St. Paul last evening at six-fifteen o'clock, form pneumonia.  She had been ill only a few days and the death came as a terrible blow to her relatives and many friends, as none suspected her condition so critical.
          The fatal illness took hold of her Monday when she returned home from Connersville, where she had been to visit her son,  L. N. Templeton.  From that time on her condition had grown steadily worse until the death angel called and took her away.
          Deceased was born and reared in Franklin county.  In 1853 she was married to Robert Templeton and a number of years afterwoard they moved to this county and settled in Noble township, where they spent the remainder of their life.
          Eleven children were born to this union, but only nine survive.  They are  G. H. Templeton,  of Spiceland;  Charles,  of Decatur county;  O. M.,  of St. Paul;  Miss Stella,  at home, and  L. N. Templeton, of Connersville.  She also leaves twenty-two grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
          Deceased was a good christian woman.  For many years she had been a member of the United Brethren church at Union Chapel, and had always taken an active part in all its departments when ill health did not prevent.  She possessed a most genial disposition and was loved by all who knew her.
          The funeral services will be held at ten o'clock Monday morning at the home, the Rev. George Swartz, of the city, officiating, and the interment will be made in the Union Chapel cemetery in charge of Stewart & Fix.

          Robert Templeton, who died at his home in St. Paul Monday, and whose funeral was held Wednesday, was a man with an unique history.  The deceased visited the California gold fields in 1852, helped to build the flumes in the American River and shot grizzlies in the Rocky mountains.  The Templeton family is one of long life.  Mr. Templeton died at the ripe age of eighty-six.  He has one sister who is now ninety years of age, another who is eighty-eight and a brother who is well past the eighty mark.  Eight touring cars were used in the funeral procession, this being the first time that cars were ever used in Shelby county at a funeral.  Six grandsons acted as pall bearers.
