John Templeman is in Allegany Co from 1797 until he dies 18 Sept 1830 at his residence near Western-port at age 76. He appears to be involved in the transporting of good up the Potomac from Georgetown and the warehousing of them. Who was Johns wife? Who were his children? Did he have a will? Is he in any census? Did he live some time in Virginia? When did he get to Allegany County?

I have seen a house, large and splendid, in Georgetown, Wshington D.C: with the placard Templeman House. I believe it is on 34th or 35th Street close to Georgetown University, around S. Street in Georgetown. My mother´s maiden name was Templeman, and we often commented on the relationship to her family. She understood the owner of the Templeman House to have been a slave trader, moving slaves up and down the Potomoc River. At one point we read in the D.C. newspaper that they had discovered a tunnel ffrom the Templeman House leading to the river , in which there were many neck and leg irons. This would seem to support the belief that indeed he was a slave trader. Please contact me if I can be of further assistance. I myself would like to trace back my own grandfather, also called John (Dudley) Templeman, born in Kentucky in 1873 to Matthew and Nellie (Dudley). Was the line originally Scottish? Thank you for any information.

The author of this post is probably no longer on Ancestry and possibly no longer with us, but I want to add that I am descended from Templemans of Virginia, and the owner of that house was possibly a relative of mine.
