Temple Lea Houston at age 18 was elected district Attorney for 32 ofTexas most northern counties. He was State Senator from Wheeler County, Texas. At the age of 30 he had earned the reputation of being a brilliant triallawyer. Big, rawboned, noble in bearing anc dourtly in demeanor, Temple was eccentric in dress. In courtrooms he wore an elegant Prince Albertcoat and pin striped trousers. His hairwas sholder lenght. His big broad brimmed hqat had a fancy rattlesnake skin band. Temple once out shot Billythe Kid in a friendly pistol shooting match behind a saloon at Tascosa.At Woodward Oklahoma where he crossedpaths with Al Jennings a Woodward lawyer who once robbed traions, paid his debt to society, became a preacher, a frined of O. Henry and ran for governor of Oklahoma. Al Jennings father John Jennings was district judge at Woodward. In Judge Jennings court Temple was prosecutor in a case involving alleged outlaws. Al Jenningg was lawyer for the defense. Templebelieved Judge Jennings favored his lawyer son in his rulings. Experated by Al Jennings actions, Temple addressed the judge: Your Honorthe gentleman (Al Jennings) is grossly ignorant of the law.Later that day Temple and Sheriff Jack Love were in a salon when Ed and John Jennings, the brothers ofAl Jennings, conforted Temple and demanded an apology. A heated quarrell ended in gun-play. When the smoke cleared the Jennings brothers were dead on the floor."The Central Texas Genealogical Society Quarterly Vol 1 Jan 1964 page 2

Temple was my 2nd cousin, 3 times removed. I have enjoyed researching the Houston family. His mother, Margaret Moffette Lea was the daughter of my 3rd great-grandfather's brother. My 3rd great-grandfather was Ransom and Temple Lea was his brother. I am sure that Temple was named after his grandfather.I am so happy that I came to this site and looked for Temple, whom ever posted the GREAT picture of Temple, thank you so very much! A big thank you for posting his grave marker as well. If anyone is related to the Houston family, please contact me!Rest in peace my dear cousin. Linda
