     Helena C. Turner was born circa 1815, daughter of James L. Turner and Sarah Campbell, in Virginia.2

     Helena and Francis Thomas Belt obtained a marriage bond on 13 August 1827 in Botetourt County, Virginia, with Francis T. Belt and Lucius D Turner as bondsmen. Helena is descrbed as "ward" of Lucius D Turner. The bond was signed by both Francis T. Belt and Lucius D. Turner.

     Their names are not listed on the Marriage Register for this county.3,4

     In 1831, during the fall, Helena with her husband and Lucius moved with their mother, Sarah, to St. Clair County, Illinois, settling on a farm north of Belleville, having been attracted here by encouraging letters from the West and Mitchell families who had left Virginia a few years previous in 1817.5

     On 27 June 1844, Pitticus Turner left "everything in his will to his tiny daughter Ann Eliza with the provision that, if she did not live to maturity, it should go to his sister, Helena C. Belt and the heirs she may have had by the late Dr. Francis T. Belt."6

     On 28 September 1851, Sarah Turner's application for bounty land for her husband's service in the War of 1812 was witnessed by L. D. Turner and H. C. Belt on September 29, 1851 and again on May 10, 1855 by L. D. Turner and Helen C. Hypes, with an affidavit by James Mitchell.7

     Helena C. Belt married Joseph Hypes on 29 April 1852 in Lebanon, St. Clair County, Illinois.8

     Helena C. Hypes died on 13 April 1873 in Lebanon, St. Clair County, Illinois.
     I could not find a burial listing for her on Find A Grave as of 21 Aug 2019.

     On 17 May 1963, Ann Eliza Turner McDowell's daughter, Ruth McDowell gave the following sworn statement to Mildred K. Fortune, Notary Public:
     "That she was born at Fincastle, Virginia on the 17 day of Dec. 1884, the youngest child of James McDowell and Ann Eliza Turner.
     That her mother, Ann Eliza Turner, was born at Fincastle, Virginia the 27th day of Sept., 1840, the only child of Dr. Pitticus Turner and his wife Sarah Ann Rebekah Rudisill (d. March 26, 1842).
     That her mother, Ann Eliza Turner, was orphaned at the age of four and was reared by a maternal (Rudisill) aunt.
     That the family Bible and all papers concerning Dr. Pitticus Turner were destroyed in a town wild fire in her mother's early married life.

     That her mother had an Aunt Helena (Turner) who 'west West' to live and an 'Uncle Van Tromp.'
     That the affiant, whose next older brother was Campbell McDowell, has always been told that she is descended from the Clan Campbell through Dr. Pitticus Turner's mother.

     Hannah Turner Davis, widow of Peter Davis, d.1804, was the sister of Gov. James Turner. It is believed, based on DNA, that James Turner is related in some way to Terisha Turner which might explain why Stephen and Henley Turner, Terisha's sons, would witness her will.6,7

Rachel Stovall b. c 1762, d. 4 Jan 1850
Children
Last Edited24 Jan 2022
     Henry Turner was born circa 1758 because, in his deposition of 12 Oct 1811, he swore he was 53 years of age.3
     He also is reported to have been born in 17574 and was also known as William Henry Sr.4

     Henry married Rachel Stovall, daughter of George Stovall and Elizabeth Landon, on 31 March 1777 in Bedford County, Virginia. A marriage record cannot be found in Bedford County records (not as indexed or in images) on FamilySearch or on Ancestry.com as of 1 Mar 2021.5,6,4

     In 1779, he furnished a substitute to the Militia after he was drafted.7 In that same year, he probably served as vestryman of Amherst church.8

     In 1780, he volunteered as a Lieutenant in the Militia, serving a part of a tour of three months, and was discharged on account of sickness.7 This "probably was the Henry who took an oath as Ensign on 2 Dec. 1782. Family tradition says that he was known and called 'Major Turner.9'"

     In 1781, he again volunteered as a captain of a company raised in Amherst County to guard Lynch's Ferry on the James River.7

     On 29 September 1781, he furnished 305 lbs. of beef valued at £2-10-10.10 However, the same entry is expressed a little differently, omitting a specific date: "At a court continued & held for Amherst County at the Court house 2nd April 1782, Agreeable to an act of Assembly for Adjusting claims for property Impressed or taken for publick Service: 305 lbs. beef Sept. P Law £2-10-10."11

     He also provided 54 1/2 lbs of bacon 23 Feb. 1781 Militia (2-0-9); 9 bu of corn, 60 sheaves of oats and 200 lbs of fodder 28 Feb., 1781 August militia (1-3-6).12,13

     In the Order Book of 1784-1787 in the July court 1785, he proved that he had provided 85 lbs of bacon (3-3-9) to the Amherst militia when [it was] guarding prisoners marching through this County.14

     On 2 December 1782, in the Court held December 2, 1782, Henry Turner qualified as Ensign in the Revolutionary War.15

     On 5 June 1783, Henry, son of Terisha Turner, received the Treasury Warrent for 556 1/4 acres issued to Terisha on this date, numbered 16718, for 100 acres of the same on the south branches of Porrage Creek within Christian's old order lines beginning at Pointers Corner of his own to join lines of Sackville King, Reuben Novella, his own and perhaps James London. Warrant was issued 28 Oct 1801.16

     In 1788, I didn't find him on Amherst County Personal Property Tax List "B", but the original record was very faint in places and I could've missed him.17

     On 5 December 1791, Henry Turner, father of the bride, witnessed the marriage bond of Sarah Turner and Jesse Dawson at Amherst County, Virginia.18

     On 7 May 1793, he is named in his father's will of this date: Item I give and bequeath unto my Son Henry Turner one certain tract or parcell (sic) of Land lying on Savage (sic) Creek in this County Saposed to contain five hundred and nineteen acres be the same more or less, with four negroes named as followeth Vilet and her three children, Cate, Sambo, and Sam., with there increase which he has all in his Possession to him and his heirs for ever.

     And Lastly I constitute and ordain my two sons Henry & William Turner Executors of this my last will and Testament hereby revoking all former wills by me made ratifying and confirmning (sic) this and no other to be my last will and Testament in Witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my Seal this Seventh day of May One Thousand seven hundred and ninety three.
Let it be observed that I think my Son George not capable to manage his affairs when it should fall to him for that reason appoint my executors as trustees for him.1

     On 7 May 1793, George Turner is named in his father's will of this date: Item I give and bequeath to my Son George Turner after the death of my loving wife all and every part of my Estate that is to say particularly that part of my estate I have lent my wife during her life with the increase to him and his heirs for ever but my Will is should my son George Turner die without Issue that the Land and Plantation I now live on Which I have given to George be devided (sic) between my two Sons Henry and William Turner my son William to have that part bounded by Benjamin Dawson's Spring Branch to . . . Branch down said Branch to the River my son William to have all the land lying between said Branch and Morrisons Mountain and the Remainder part of said Land to my son Henry Turner with the land Mentioned in Albemarle County to them and their heirs forever, my will is farther that should my son George turner die without issue as above mentioned, that the whole of the Estate that I have given him the Lands excepted be equally divided between my Children that is Stephen Turner, John Turner, and Sarah Stovall to them and their heirs forever.

     George is not deemed competent to handle his own affairs so two of his brothers, William Turner and Henry Turner are named trustees of that which his father, Terisha, provided for him.19,1

     According to Jerry Turner, "the conclusion one can draw from Old Terisha's will is: three sons (John, William and Henry) inherited 1/3 of the land originally purchased from John Scott. . . Each received 519 acres, with the will specifying that John's 519 acres, which the will says he already posseses, lies on Fry's Branch. Henry's lies on Porrage Creek and William's lies between his two brother's tracts."20

     On 30 December 1795, Henry Turner and co-executor, Elizabeth Stovall, of George Stovall's estate, sold to Sackville King of Campbell County, 44 acres for £50 on both sides of Stovall. The land was bounded by that of Wm. Galt; Stephen Ham; and where Stovall's mill formerly stood. Witnesses were: Wm. London; Jas. London; and Jas. Turner, Jr (I think I've identified him correctly) at Amherst County, Virginia.21

     On 7 December 1799, Henry Turner, Elizabeth's father, witnessed the marriage bond of his daughter, Elizabeth, and John Gregory at Amherst County, Virginia.22

     On 7 March 1801, Henry Turner, father of the bride, witnessed the marriage bond of Martha Turner and William Gregory at Amherst County, Virginia, with Terisha Turner as security with S. Garland and Jenny Ballard as witnesses.23

     On 12 October 1811, in the case Norvell vs. Camm -- O. S. 160; N. S. 56--Bill, 1811: is a suit concerning some land patented in 1755 which had been conveyed to Reuben Norvell of Amherst County. "Henry Turner, aged 53, deposes in Campbell, 12th October, 1811, has lived near the land since 1776."24

     On 28 July 1817, Henry Turner qualified as guardian of George Gregory, orphan of Jno. Gregory, with Samuel Turner securing the $500 bond in Nelson County, Virginia.25,26

     Henry Turner left a will dated on 28 September 1828 in Amherst County, Virginia. Henry, in his will, names: Daughter, Sally Dawson; son, Wm; daughter, Patsy Gregory; daughter, Polly D. Omohundro; son, Jas. S; son, Henry; son, Stephen B; son, Lawson; son, Geo; daughter, Ruth Stone; daughter, Nancy B. Carver; wife, Rachel; grandson, Jas. H. Turner; son, Terisha; son, Saml; heirs of deceased daughter, Eliza. Gregory. Witnesses to the will were: Jesse Mundy, Chas. Mundy, Jas. S. Dillard, Saml. Woodson.27

     Henry Turner died on 23 October 1829 in Amherst County, Virginia.
     His obituary calls him '"Major" and gives his age at death as 78, referring to him as "Another Revolutionary Patriot gone."28 In the pension application filed by his mother, Henry's son, Stephen B. Turner, states that his father died "9 miles from Lynchburgh."

     Find A Grave does not have a burial listing for him as of 23 Jan 2019.7

     His estate was probated on 16 November 1829 in Amherst County, Virginia.27

     On 16 November 1829, an Administrator's Bond was posted by Lawson Turner, Geo. S. Turner, Geo. Staples, Jas. S. Higginbotham, with Stephen B. and Wm. Turner as security for first two at Amherst County.29

     Henry Turner's estate was inventoried on 1 December 1829 in Amherst County The inventory total of Major Henry Turner, December 1, 1829 was $3,143.25 (worth $65,313.66 in 2011 dollars) presented by Geo. Staples, Jesse Beck, Jno. Warwick.30

     On 28 April 1830, a William Turner (not identified at this time) and Sarah his wife signed an indenture with Jesse Mundy and Henry H. Watts as security with Edmund Winston boud as encorser for the said William Turner on a note executed by William to Thomas Tucker and endorsed first by the said Thomas Tucker and then by the said Edmund Winston which note bears the date on 17 Feb 1830 for the sum of $884 and was made negotiable at the office of Discount and Deposit of the Bank of Virginia at Lynchburg and payable sixty days after this date. This was protested for nonpayment on 21 Apr 1830 and remains still wholly unpaid. Whereas the said William Turner contemplates applying to the President and Directors of the said Office of Discount and Deposit to reinstate and renew said note from time to time and until he finds it convenient to dischage said debt by the substitution of of other notes to be excuted by him and endorsed by the said Tucker and Winston. William Turner is desirous effectually to secure the said Edmund Winston against all loss or injury arising or which may be visited upon him by reason of his endorsement on the note herein before described by this indenture. William conveyed to Jesse Mundy and Henry H. Watts 300 acres of land, the same tract of land on which William Turner resides adjoining the lands of Jesse Mundy and the lands belonging to the Estate of Henry Turner decd. William is to have use and enjoy the profits of said land without charge for rent. It is understood that by Edmund Winston accepting this deed he does not waive or in any manner relinquish or abandon his claim against the said Thomas Tucker as the first endorser upon the note, but on the contrary, he, the said Edmund Winston claims and insists and will forever claim and insist that the said Thomas Tucker is and will remain bound to him for the amount of the said note and all costs and interest which have accrued thereon until the same is fully discharged. at Amherst County, Virginia.31

     On 1 January 1833, the Administrator's Account of Henry Turner's estate settlement was filed by Lawson Turner and George S.

     Henry Turner was born on 7 April 1786, son of Henry Turner and Rachel Stovall, in Amherst County, Virginia.3,4
     He was also known as William Henry Jr.4

     Henry, 25, married Isabella Hopkins, daughter of William Hopkins and Mary (--?--), on 16 December 1811 in Albemarle County, Virginia.5,6,7

     In 1814, could this be the Henry Turner who is found on the Muster Roll of Capt. David Jacobs' Troop of Cavalry, of the 28th Regiment, Virginia Militia, in the County of Nelson, called into actual Service under the general orders of the 26 Aug 1814, from the d to the 12th of September 1814 and served 12 days?8

     On 28 September 1828, he is named in his father's will of this date.1

     On 1 January 1833, the Administrator's Account of Henry Turner's estate settlement was filed by Lawson Turner and George S. Turner, executors, approved by Superior Court of Lynchburg and certified to Amherst County. Legatees: Martha Gregory, Terisha Turner, Henry Turner, M. H. Garland for E. P. Omohundro, Jas. S. Turner, B. P. Balderfor Geo. N. Gregory , Reuben Carver, S. B. Turner, Saml. Turner, Wm. Turner, Jas. S. Turner for Hezekiah Stone with Jos. S. Dillard and Jesse Mundy, as commissioners in Amherst County.9

     The only Henry Turner I found in a reasonable place (not Vermont or Georgia) in the 1850 census as well as born in Virginia is Henry Turner, 63 years of age; Grocer, with real estate valued at $2,000, born in Virginia, living in Howard County, Missouri. But, he was enumerated with a Martha Turner, age 23; Robert H. Turner, age 22, Farmer; Jane Turner, age 29; L. Turner, age 11; and Geo. Harrold, age 25, Shoemaker - all of whom were born in Virginia. This cannot be him because I cannot identify the other people.10

     Henry, 67, married Agnes Childress, 46, on 1 October 1853 in Albemarle County, Virginia.11,12

     Henry Turner died in 1863.

     I would have expected him to have been buried in the same cemetery as Agnes, but he's not on Find A Grave there. There is no memorial page on Find a Grave for Isabella.13,4

     Henry H. Turner was born on 16 January 1823, son of Henley Turner and Elizabeth Duke, in North Carolina.1
     Henry also is reported to have been born on 19 June 1819.5

     On 21 October 1829, he is named in his father's will of this date.4

     In February 1834, the Court, ordered an audit of the guardian accounts of Richard Davis as guardian of the heirs of Henley Turner, deceased. The Guardian Account was filed in May Court. Accounts were ordered settled with Benjamin Norwood, administrator with the will annexed in Aug Court, during which the account was current with the administrator. A share of Negroes was allotted to Matthew Turner, son of the deceased in Nov Court. A share of the Negroes was allotted to Mark C. Turner, son of the deceased in Feb Court 1835. The May Court ordered an audit of the guardian accounts which was filed in Aug Court. Richard Davis renewed his guardian bond for the orphans, James, Mark C., Susan, Henly (I think this should be Henry) and James (?) Turner on 23 Feb Court 1836 (page 205, image 119). Shares of the Negroes were allotted to Mark C. Turner and Jane Yarborough formerly Jane Turner in Nov Court 1836. The Court again ordered an audit of the guardian accounts in Feb Court 1837. in Warren County, North Carolina.6,7

     In February 1835, Henley Turner's land division was filed with the Court in Warren County, North Carolina. The division made on 26 Dec 1834 alloted land to his heirs: Henry Turner; Stephen H. Turner; James M. Turner; Susan Turner; Martha Jane; Mark C. Turner; Mathew D. Turner; all of whom were his siblings.8

     In 1839, he is appointed guardian of Henry and James M. Turner in Feb Court in Warren County.9

     In 1840, Stephen Henley Turner's guardian accounts of Henry and James M. Turner are ordered examined in Feb Court in Warren County.10

     In 1840, in November Court at Warren County, North Carolina, Peter Evans and his wife, Susanna, petitioned Henry Turner and James Turner for division of slaves. Service was noted to Stephen H. Turner as well.11

     In 1840, in November Court in Warren County , Peter Evans and his wife, Susanna, petitioned Henry Turner and James Turner for division of slaves. Service was noted to Stephen H. Turner as well.11

     In January 1841, Stephen Henley Turner is named Guardian of his younger brother, Henry Turner, in Warren County.12

     In January 1841, his brother, Stephen H. Turner, is named his Guardian at Warren County, North Carolina.12

     In 1843, Henry and his brother, James, petitioned for a division of slaves in Nov Court at Warren County. They petitioned again in Feb 1844 Court. Stephen H. Turner, their brother, was still their guardian.13

     Henry and Eleanor N. Mabry obtained a marriage bond on 1 January 1844 in Warren County, North Carolina, with John Stainback as bondsman and M. J. Montgomery was a witness.14

     In 1865, I found an estate administration at Warren County, North Carolina, for a Henry Turner granted to John Read in Feb Court, but I'm not sure it refers to this Henry, but it seems likely, but they were in Kentucky in 1860.15,16

     Henry H. Turner died on 3 February 1908 at age 855 and was buried in Mount Pleasant Church Cemetery, La Center, Ballard County, Kentucky.5

     Holland Alexander Turner was born on 13 April 1877 in Henderson, Rusk County, Texas,3,4 and baptized. By Reverend R. W. Thompson.

     He performed his Military Service in 1898 by serving as a private in Company K, 3rd United States Volunteer Engineers, United States Army, during the Spanish-American War.5

     According to Grady T. Turner, Holland served as a Private with Company K, 8th U. S. Engineer Regiment in training for the invasion of Cuba during the Spanish-American War..6

     Holland and Annie Bealle Matthews were married on 29 April 1908 at Coryell County, Texas.7,8,9

     Holland was a lawyer in Austin who died in middle age after his brother, William Franklin Turner. Pauline Shepard Turner McClinton says he was in the banking business in Austin. So much for this jewel of information: I don't call 82 years of age as being in middle-aged!

     Holland Alexander Turner died about 5:45 pm of a myocardial infarction due to extensive arteriosclerosis with thrombosis, complete occlusion of the anterior descending branch of the left coronary and refusal to go back into the hospital on 20 January 1960 at age 82 in Hotel Faust, New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas,2 and was buried on 22 January 1960 in Austin Memorial Park Cemetery, Austin, Travis County, Texas.8,2

     Hubert Leslie Turner was born on 2 July 1890, son of Gus Walter Turner and Mattie Isabelle Wyatt, in Ingleside, Ballard County, Kentucky.2,3,1

     Hubert registered for the draft on 5 June 1917 at Ballard County, Kentucky. He was 26 years of age, single, a farmer, and is described as Tall, Medium build with grey eyes and dark 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.

     The first registration was for men between the ages of 21 and 31 (men born between 5 Jun 1886 and 5 Jun 1896), meaning he had to register.3

     Hubert married Willie A. Colvin circa 1919. I have been unable to find a marriage record anywhere as of 19 Mar 2021.4

     In 1935, he was living in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan.5

     Hubert was a Laborer who has been married before according to his marriage license with Avery Casey.6

     Hubert Leslie Turner and Avery Casey obtained a marriage license on 19 December 1936 in Wayne County, Michigan.6

     Hubert, 46, married Avery Casey on 24 December 1936 in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan.6

     He registered for the draft on 27 April 1942 at Ballard County, Kentucky. He was 51 years of age and married. He is described as being 5' 11" in height, 165 pounds, with gray eyes, black/gray hair and a light complexion.

     The Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, also known as the Burke–Wadsworth Act, enacted September 16, 1940, was the first peacetime conscription in United States history. The Selective Service Act required that men who had reached their 21st birthday but had not yet reached their 36th birthday register with local draft boards. Later, when the U.S. entered World War II after Pearl Harbor, all men from their 18th birthday until the day before their 45th birthday were made subject to military service, and all men from their 18th birthday until the day before their 65th birthday were required to register.7

     "Mrs. Mattie Turner, 87, Dies at Kevil

     "Mrs. Mattie Turner, 87, died Wednesday afternoon at the home of her daughter. Mrs. R. A. Upshaw, of Kevil. She was found dead in her bed by her daughter. Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon of last week at 3 o'clock at Mt. Pleasant church, with the Rev. marvin E. Hines, pastor of Kevil Baptist church, conducting the rites. Burial was in the church cemetery."

     "Besides her daughter, she is survived by six sons, Cecil Turner, Jackson, Mich; Walter Turner, Paducah; Charlie Turner, Lovelaceville; Hubert Turner, Bandana; Earl Turner, Wickliffe; Dalzell Turner, Cairo, Ill; two sisters: Miss Eva Wyatt, Kevil; Mrs.H. H. Whipple, Bandana; a brothr, Ed Wyatt, of Kevil; 14 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; and several other relatives."8
