Bernard Moore Temple

Inscribed

“Virginia-born B. M. Temple served in the Confederate army during the Civil War (1861-1865), then moved west to begin a noted career in civil engineering. As Chief Engineer for the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe Railroad, 1879-1884, he supervised much of the line’s expansion in Texas, always demanding quality construction. Temple, Texas, founded by the railroad in 1881 and later a division point, was named for him.”

“Temple married Ida May Shipman (1861-1936). They had two children.”
