On 01 Jan 1852 she purchased 39.87 acres of land described as SW 1/4 of NW 1/4 of S10 T4N R14E, Covington County, Alabama.
On 01 Nov 1858 she also purchased 79.75 acres of land described as the SE 1/4 of the NW 1/4 & the NE 1/4 of the SW 1/4 S10 T4N R14E, also in Covington County.
According to Wyley Ward's book The Folks From Pea Ridge, Tempy and son Green T. Franklin were working at the Tanyard and Shoe Manufacturing Plant belonging to Julian G. Robinson in 1860. It is unknown where Mr. Ward obtained his information regarding this as the book is unsourced. The 1860 census reports both Tempy and daughter Serena as being seamstresses. Julian G. Robinson appears on the same census page 3 households away. The enumerator, my ancestor William Thomas Acree, listed the persons on this page as living in the Conecuh River Community, which does coincide with Mr. Ward's Pea Ridge area in his book. Several persons on this page are indeed listed as shoemakers, and son Green T. Franklin who appears on the preceding census page is among them.
