Temple Lea Houston
[Add A Photo]

Image is scaled. Click image to open at full size.
Here's a photo of Temple Lea, who was born in 1860 and died in 1905. You can look at his face and see the resemblance to his father Sam Houston. He was elected to the state senate at the age of 24 ---- still the youngest person ever elected to that august body. Texas had a law that you had to be 26 years old to be a state senator but, apparently, nobody was going to challenge Sam Houston's son's right to elected office!
