Last Edited28 Mar 2021
     Berry Verdier Turner was born on 30 August 1879, son of Egbert Turner and Elizabeth Verdier, in Missouri.4,5

     Berry Verdier Turner, 21, married Dediaier A. Worlledge, 20, on 3 January 1901 in Pike County, Missouri.6

     Berry registered for the draft on 12 September 1918 at Bowling Green, Pike County, Missouri. He was 39 years of age, married, and a Farmer. The only description of him is that he had blue eyes and light hair.

     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. Obviously, not everyone who was registered for the draft was drafted or served in the military.

     With no end in sight for the end of World War I, a third and final registration law was instituted which now included all men between the ages of 18 and 45 which added younger men that the previous registrations laws and an older group of men born between 1873 and 1900, meaning he had to register.7

     Berry Verdier Turner died on 9 November 1967 at age 885 and was buried in Eolia Cemetery, Eolia, Pike County, Missouri.5

     Bryan Ermine Turner was born on 23 October 1899, son of George R. Turner and Martha J. Eldrige, in Kentucky.4,7
     He was also known as Bryan.4

     Bryan registered for the draft on 12 September 1918 at Ballard County, Kentucky. He was 19 years of age and a farmer. He is described as short, stout, with light brown eyes and black hair.

     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. Obviously, not everyone who was registered for the draft was drafted or served in the military.

     With no end in sight for the end of World War I, a third and final registration law was instituted which now included all men between the ages of 18 and 45 which added younger men that the previous registrations laws and an older group of men born between 1873 and 1900, meaning he had to register.7

     Bryan Ermine Turner married Mary Offie Curtis circa 1921. I cannot find this marriage anywhere on FamilySearch or Ancestry as of 7 Feb 2021.5,8

     In 1923, they had a son, James Harold Turner (1923-2003.)9

     Bryan Ermine Turner died on 2 August 1939 at age 39 in La Center, Ballard County, Kentucky,5,3 and was buried in Barlow Cemetery, Barlow, Ballard County, Kentucky.3

     Calvin Smith Turner was born on 25 December 1825, son of William Suddarth Turner and Elizabeth Pearl Smith, in Tennessee.4

At the request of John Turner we have               John Turner (seal)
affixed our names as witness of the above

     In 1840, Calvin Turner was among the men from the Guadalupe who joined an Indian expedition commanded by Colonel Tom Howard in the company of Captain Matthew Caldwell. "There were 170 white men on this hunt and they located a large camp of Indians where Brackett is now. A considerable battle took place and a great deal of noise was made, but none of the white men were killed and but few wounded. Twenty Indians were killed and seven hundred head of mules and horses were captured . . . A great many of these mules and horses had been carried off by the Indians from below in the settlements along the rivers and were returned to their owners."6

     Between 1842 and 1846, Calvin was one of the men in the first group of Texas Rangers, serving under Jack Hays. "He took part of the Battle of Salado in 1842. He served through the Mexican War of 1846 in the famous regiment of Rangers commanded by Col. Jack Hays, his old captain. He took part in the Battles of Monterey and Buena Vista."7

     After returning from Mexico he received a commission from Gov. P. H. Bell as second lieutenant in the ranger company commanded by Capt. Henry E. McCulloch. He engaged in stock-raising after coming to Pleasanton, and also opened a hotel. He served under Capt. John Tom part of the time as minuteman to repel Indian incursions, and participated in the Indian battle on San Miguel Creek. During one raid near town his Mexican herder was killed by Indians. During the Civil War he was a lieutenant in Captain Maverick's company, Wood's regiment."8

     On 25 October 1847, Calvin S. first enlisted in the Texas Mounted Volunteers (Rangers) on October 25, 1847, as a Private for 12 months of service. He was 21 years old and had blue eyes, light hair and a light complexion. He stood 5'11" tall. He gave his birthplace as Seguin. His enlistment officer was Captain Henry E. McCulloch.9

     On 25 October 1848, he again enlisted, this time as a 2nd Lieutenant. He served on this enlistment for 1 month and 13 days of service.9

     On 5 November 1850, he again enlisted on November 5, 1850 for 6 months of service.9 "I'd love to tell a fun story on my Texas Ranger ancestor:"

     "Don't know if you have ever been to Texas or not but just above San Antonio and to the east it gets into the Edwards Plateau - ground makes an abrupt jump right behind my parents home (outside New Braunfels) about a mile away behind their house - sudden tall cliffs. I guess a massive earth quake lifted the ground up after the water receded long ago when the ocean came further inland to our continent. And part of the ground stayed level. At the base of this break water came up from artesian underground aquifers. In my hometown of New Braunfels a small river is spring fed and is crystal clear coming from the base of this cliff. Anyway on the top part of the cliff - Edwards Plateau - the hills begin and the country gets rough the further north you go."

     "The Indians loved to swoop down from the desert areas in west Texas and hit around Austin and down towards San Antonio plundering and pillaging where ever they found a lonesome cabin. Then they would go into the hill country escaping into the brush and rough terrain making camps and later heading back into the far desert and mountains in west Texas."

     "After one such Indian raid a large group of Texas Rangers took off a few days afterwards to follow their trail. My ancestor Calvin Turner was among the men. Each had to have proved themselves worthy to the leader Jack Hays to even get to be a part. Jack lived in the same town (Sequin) with Calvin and their families the Turners and Hays had migrated together for generations, first from Virginia to Tennessee and then from Tennessee to Texas. The men in this outfit were rough and tough and had gone through some hard times living in the early days of Texas. I read where in one year in san Antonio 130 white men were counted arriving that year. At the end of the year nearly 100 of them had died -- most to Indian attacks. This was the environment a few years before Calvin and his family arrived just after the Battle of San Jacinto. Calvin was 16 years old and he and his older brothers eagerly joined up with the Ranger group that Jack Hays organized to protect the settlers after the war with Mexico was over. (I don't imagine plowing held a candle to Indian fighting.)"

     "At the time of this raid Calvin and the Rangers had been on tours of duty together off and on for a number of years."

     "As the group followed the Indian trail they got within a half days ride of them. The commander Jack Hays ordered his men to get in single file and stay in line. They were going through canyons and gullies and rough country and he wanted them to proceed as fast and as safely as possible. His men were pretty unruly tough guys so he gave the order that if anyone got out of line they had to go to the rear - to avoid fighting over their place in line - as no one wanted to eat dust in the rear."

     "Later, one of the men near Calvin had to leave the line for some reason. He came back and tried to get his horse back in where he had been before. Another man he was trying to cut in front of sternly reminded him what the Captain had said. He had to go to the rear! This was not pleasing to this fellow to say the least and with some oaths he worked his horse harder at getting back in line. The other fellow worked hard to prevent it and even jabbed the guys horse with the butt of his gun. This upset the horse who threw his rider off onto the hard rocky ground. Calvin and the others nearby heard the oaths and swearing and anger of this thrown rider and knew there would be a fight later between the two. They all considered on it while they sat on their horses and followed the trail. When they came to a place to make camp Calvin got a few of his friends aside and told them he had a plan involving the two at-odds Rangers."

     "He had noticed some berries they'd passed that stain bright red like blood. 'Hey how about a fake duel between the two,' he suggested. They made their plans and the angered Ranger was easy putty in their hands. He was bound and determined to kill the guy who had jabbed his horse making him fall, so Calvin and his friends were going to oblige him. They got to talking about duels and soon it was arranged that early in the morning they'd settle it once and for all the proper way with a duel. Of course, Captain Jack Hays knew nothing of this."

     "The men who posed as seconds were carefully selected and the other Ranger sneakily told of the fake duel and his part in it. When the seconds took the guns to check them they hid in the bushes for a moment and emptied out the real bullets and replaced them with some other objects. One gun, that of the angry Ranger had the berries in it that stained red. The other Ranger had some pemican (not sure I'm spelling it right - a food substance that was brown and sticky) put in his gun."

     "It was so early in the morning the men didn't let the guys even get dressed, but they faced each other off in their white long johns. (The better to show the red berry stain I guess :) After the required twenty paces they turned and fired. The Ranger hit with the red berries faked that he'd been killed and sure enough looked like he took a good hit in the chest with the red all over. Excitedly and horrified the seconds announced, 'You Killed HIM!' Then they noticed the Ranger standing there looking a bit horrified himself and they said 'You've been hit too! Look his guts are coming out!' Upon hearing this the Ranger looked down and saw some sticky brown goo oozing on his clothes above his belt. He promptly fainted away! To the hoots and hollers of the men who had a great time, let me tell you with that poor old guy. When he came to he was pretty angry at those Rangers but so relieved he hadn't killed the other Ranger that he jumped up and went and shook the man's hand and the two duelists became best friends for the rest of their lives!"10

     Calvin, 25, married Amanda Ann Tucker, 15, daughter of Ezekiel Tucker and Ashbel (--?--), on 16 November 1851 in Hays County, Texas.11

     Calvin Smith Turner died on 10 November 1871 at age 45 in Pleasanton, Atascosa County, Texas,12 and was buried in San Ysidro Cemetery, Pleasanton, Atascosa County, Texas.12
