     Jane H. Turner married (--?--) Williams. I cannot find a marriage record for this couple anywhere as of 29 Nov 2020, partly because there are so many men with the surname Williams in Tennessee. I tried the census but found only a Joseph Williams in Wilson County married to a Jane or Jinney Patterson.

     However, I did find a marriage record for a Jane Turner and Robt J Williams dated 20 Jan 1829 in Davidson County, Tennessee. There is an image so I can verify the date which makes no sense for this to be the right marriage record if she's named Jane Williams in her father's will of 1823.1,2

     On 23 October 1823, she is named Jane H. Williams in her father's will of this date.1

     Jefferson Daniel Turner was born circa 1810, son of Samuel Turner and Sarah Farrar Spencer, in Virginia.3

     On 29 July 1829, Samuel Turner's will does not mention a wife so she may have predeceased him. It names E. A. Cabell, Jr. and P. C. Cabell, as trustees for Mary D. Turner, daughter of my son, Jno (John). The division of three tracts is shown as:

     On 29 July 1829, he is named in his father's will of this date at which time he was unmarried.1

     On 16 November 1829, when his father's will was probated, he inherited the 'mansion house' under the guardianship of Peyton Keith.1

     Jefferson and Mary Watts Cheatwood obtained a marriage bond on 13 October 1832 at Amherst County, Virginia, with Jonas Pierce as security and Sophia H. Woodroof as witness.7,8

     Jefferson married Frances Jane Turner, daughter of Daniel Cheatwood and Frances Philips, in Amherst County, Virginia. After Frances' husband, William S. Turner's, death, she married his brother, Jefferson Daniel Turner, who had been married to a Mary Watts Cheatwood, daughter of Francis Cheatwood, possibly a cousin of Frances'.

     I have been unable to find a marriage record for them as of 4 Feb 2021.9

     Jefferson Daniel Turner was born on 28 February 1873, son of Lewis Emmitt Turner and Julia Askew Turner, in Tye River, Nelson County, Virginia.2,4
     He was also known as Jefferson.2

     Jefferson, 28, married Florence Belle Bryant, 23, on 16 December 1901 in Amherst County, Virginia.5

     Jefferson registered for the draft on 12 September 1918 at Amherst County, Virginia. He was 45 years of age and a Farmer. He is described as of medium height and build with 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.4

     Jefferson Daniel Turner died on 19 March 1947 at age 74 in Temperance District, Amherst County, Virginia,3 and was buried in Bryant-Jones Cemetery, Arrington, Nelson County, Virginia.6

Untangling Two John Turners in Sumner County, Tennessee

     I am greatly in debt to Jerry Turner whose documented research has helped me untangle the two John Turners in Sumner County, Tennessee.
     John Turner was born between 1740 and 1750, son of Terisha Turner and Sarah (--?--), in Amherst County, Virginia Colony.3

     John married Mildred Suddarth, daughter of James Suddarth and Patience Sumpter, in 1770 in Virginia Colony.4,5

     He performed his Military Service during the American Revolution from Amherst County (which comprised then the territory of the present Nelson County).6

     On 12 March 1777, per Christopher Irvine, he gave a receipt to Thomas Madison for £9 for beeves for the Cherokee expedition. This receipt was witnessed by Abraham Twigg.7

     On 7 December 1778, is this the Jno. Turner, of Amherst County, whom Thos. Powell, also of Amherst County, paid £100 for 250 acres with lines down the James River?8

     On 24 July 1781, he furnished 300 lbs. of beef for the army.9

     "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: 300 lbs. beef July 1781 P. Law £2-10."10

     On 7 May 1793, he is named in his father's will of this date: Item I give and bequeath unto my son John Turner one Certain tract or parcell (sic) of Land lying in this County (Amherst) on Fry's branch Saposed (sic) to contain five hundred and nineteen acres be the same more or less and the said Land in his possession with three negroes named Pheby, Sam and Sarah, with their increase to him and his heirs forever.1,11

     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."12

     Joseph Newman made an oath that Sally Turner, daughter of John Turner, was 21 years of age on 10 August 1796.13

     On 14 November 1797, it is possible he was the John Turner who witnessed an Indenture between Andrew Steel and Shadrack Nye at Sumner County, Tennessee.14

     John and Mildred moved to Sumner County, Tennessee, possibly before 14 Nov 1797 when John Turner, Jurat, witnessed a deed between Andrew Steel and Shadrack Nye. John and Milly did not sell their Virginia property until 1803.15

     On 19 March 1798, John Turner, father of the bride, was security the marriage bond of Moses Tinsley and Elizabeth T. Turner at Amherst County, Virginia.16,17

     Sumner County, Tennessee was created in 1786 from Davidson County and the boundaries were described as 'the line of division began where the county line crosses the west fork of Stone's River; thence, a direct line to the north of Drake's Lick Creek; thence, down Cumberland River to the mouth of Kasper's Creek; thence up said creek to the head of the War Trace Fork; thence, a northwardly course to the Virginia line at a point that will leave Red River Old Station one mile to the east. That part of Davidson County that lay east of this line, was to belong to Sumner County.'"

     Petitioners of Sumner County, TN dated 30 September 1799 to the House of Representatives 30 September 1799: The Honourable the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee The Petition of a number of inhabitants of the upper end of Sumner County Eastwardly of Rocky Creek Respectively sheweth that from the great extent of said county we humbly conceive it ought to be divided into two separate and distinct counties we having advertised agreeable to law respecting the division of counties. We your petitioners beg leave to state your honourable body some of the hardships we labored under in our present situation, many of us having to attend courts and general assembly & other publick meetings at the distance of sixty and seventy miles which makes our local situation disagreeable from these reasons and many others........ could assign to your ...we beg leave to recommend to your honourable body to divide the said county of Sumner as follows: begining at a portion on the line which divides the State of Kentucky from this State which is a due south course will strike the head of the main fork of Rocky Creek and down the same to its confluence with the Cumberland River thence a South Southeast course to the INDIAN BOUNDARY and all that part of the said county lying Eastward from the above described line is the part we wish it in Justice think ought to be formed into a Separate county and we your petitioners as in duty bound shall ever pray."

     This petition was signed by Terisha Turner, most probably, John's son.18

     On 6 March 1802, John and his wife, Milley, sold 622 1/3 acres of land on Porridge Creek in Amherst County to Rich. Jones for £800. The land was bounded by the lands of Joseph Higginbotham, John Nichols, Charles Munday, William Turner, Joseph Nichols, Daniel Day and John Mounce. The original deed was delivered to Rich. Jones on September 24, 1804. It is presumed that the land he inherited from his father was included in this tract. Although Milley signed the deed along with John, she did not specifically state her dower release of the land which created a problem later.19

     On 11 February 1803, John Turner served as bondsman when his daughter, Polly, married William Read at Sumner County, Tennessee.20

     On 5 April 1803, John Turner and Terisha Turner were bound unto David Wilson Chairman of the Court of Sumner County in the sum of $5,000 to be paid the said chairman, his successors or assigns. The condition of the obligation as that John Turner has obtained an order of Court for leave to erect a Grist Mill on Rocking Creek about three or four hundred yards below where the road from Bledsoes lick to the flat ? across said creek within one year from this date. Signed by both John Turner and Terisha Turner.21

     On 14 June 1803, John Turner was security for the marriage bond of Mary Turner and Terisha Turner at Amherst County, Virginia.22,23,24,25

     On 10 September 1803, John bought 164 acres of land from Moses Tinsley, his son-in-law, for $500. The witnesses were his sons, James Turner and Tinsha (Terisha) Turner. Although no creek was mentioned in this deed, this land "was clearly described as being located on Rocky Creek in the original deed of purchase" at Sumner County, Tennessee. It is not clear what happened to the land. John apparently did not retain title to it, although no deed of sale has thus far been recorded.26

     On 24 September 1804 "the Amherst County Court, Commonwealth of Virginia, directed the justices of Sumner County, Tennessee to obtain relinquishment of Milley Turner on the deed dated March 6, 1802. On December 5, 1804, the justices declared that they examined Milley Turner apart from her husband John Turner and she agreed to the sale of the land. This court record proves that this John and Milly Turner were the previous owners of the land received through the probate of "ancient" Terisha Turner's will and that they were living in Sumner County."12

     On 21 December 1804, John bought 300 acres of land on Rocky Creek from James Sanders for $900. The land was further described as beginning on the creek at an elm in Goodrum's line. (The John Goodrum and John Turner families were related through the marriage of their children, son James Turner and daughter Nancy Goodrum). This is the land on which John Turner lived.27

     On 4 August 1806, both John and Terisha (spelled Terratia) Turner charged items with a Gallatin merchant at Sumner County, Tennessee.28

     John Turner married Elizabeth (--?--) after 1807. According to Jerry Turner, her surname was possibly Harrell or Harrel based on the guardianship of Kader Harrel of John Turner in his later years.2,12,29

     On 15 October 1807, John Turner bought 100 acres of land on the west fork of Goose Creek from John and Peter Lynn for $600, parft of a preemption granted Levi Cotton (?) by North Carolina. Witnesses: William Harper and Tensha (Terisha) Turner (his son) at Sumner County, Tennessee. Goose Creek is located east of the land on Rocky Creek. His total land holdings at this point were 564 acres.30

     He has been reported to have died in 1809 at Shelby County, Tennessee, which does not make sense given all the subsequent data we have for him.2

     On 11 June 1812, John Turner conveyed 155 acres of land in Sumner County on June 11, 1812 to his beloved son, Terisha Turner for $10. The land was identified as part of the tract on which John then lived. Plats drawn of this land indicate that John sold Terisha the top portion of his 300 acre tract at Sumner County, Tennessee.31

     On 11 June 1812, John Turner conveyed 100 acres on Goose Creek adjacent to the land of David Henry to William Read (his son-in-law) for $10 at Sumner County, Tennessee.32

     I believe we can explain the 1820 household of Milly Turner in Sumner County. She was over 45 years of age and lived alone. Next to her was the household of Charles Turner. I believe this is another Milley Turner, widow of one of the other unrelated Turners living at some distance from Terisha's descendants in Sumner County.

     Untangling the different John Turners in Sumner County is not for the faint of heart. Fortunately, Jerry Turner has been of great assistance with this problem. According to the name conventions of the late eighteenth century, the "senior" designation was applied by civil authorities to the oldest man of that name in a given area. Clearly, this John Turner is between 20 and 25 years older than the next oldest John Turner of Terisha's descendants in Sumner County. However, in later tax lists, there are, indeed, two John Turners, senr. listed.

     I show that John bought the following land in Sumner County:
164 acres in 1803
300 acres in 1804
100 acres in 1807
120 acres in 1808
162 acres in 1826 before his death

     He conveyed the following acres in Sumner County:
100 to William Read, his son-in-law
155 to his son, Terisha

     This would leave him about 429 acres prior to the 1826 purchase He would not have been charged the poll tax after he was 50 years of age, but he would've been taxed on his property. A John Turner purchased 162 acres of land in a deed of trust from James D. Edson and John Spain. The land was on Booker's Creek and mentioned the bank of Rocky Creek in the deed. Witnesses were J. G. Turner and James Adams. By drawing the plat of this land, it is clear that the land comprised the bottom half of John's 1804 land purchase of 300 acres. No further deeds have been found to explain the land holdings of John Turner.33

     According to Jerry Turner's analysis, "in John Turner's will, proved 1 Apr 1832 in Shelby County, Tennessee, he bequeathed to his wife, Elizabeth, $700 due him as a debt owned by James Eidson and John Spain. It would appear, based on these two records, that John Turner loaned $700 to said two men in exchange for 162 acres given as collateral. Did he ever actually possess this land? Was the debt ever paid? In any event, the record is evidence for proving the John Turner, who died in Shelby County, Tennessee, is the same John Turner who previously was a land owner and resident of Sumner County, Tennessee. The extension fo this, based on facts presented, proves he was the son of Terisha Turner."34

     John Turner left a will dated on 24 August 1827 in Shelby County, Tennessee. John Turner, in his will of this date, says:
     Be it remembered that I John Turner of the county of Shelby & State of Tennessee being weak of body but of sound and perfect mind & memory, blessed by Almighty God for the same, do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner & form following to wit.

     I give & Bequeath to my wife Elizabeth one negro woman named nance with her son called Sam, also I give to her all my household furniture except such part of it as my son William S. Turner has in his possession which (sic) which I give to Isaac H. Turner, William R. Turner, Carolina (I believe this should be Calvin) S. Turner & Samuel Turner, children of William S. Turner.

     I bequeath to my wife one horse & two cows & calves.

     I give to my children Sally Caffey, Terisha Turner, Polly Read, James Turner & William S. Turner the sum of one dollar & no more.

     Likewise to the children of my deceased daughter, Betsy Tinsley. I give one dollar equally divided between them.

     The sum of seven hundred dollars due me by James Eidson & John Spain, I give and bequeath to my wife together will all other demand which I may have after my just debts are paid.

     And I appoint my wife Elizabeth & Kader Harrell commissioners to execute the above.

     I hereby revoke all former wills which I have made.

     In testimony whereof I have affixed my seal this 24th day of August 1827.
At the request of John Turner we have               John Turner (seal)
affixed our names as witness of the above
Charles H. Stone
James R. Harrell
Jacob F. Eilett (sic - Elliott?)35

     On 22 January 1829, Kader Harrel and John Bolton of Shelby County were bonded in the amount of $2,000 and appointed guardians to John Turner an old man of insane (unsound?) mind at Shelby County, Tennessee.29

     On 17 October 1831, John Boulton of Shelby County was bonded in the sum of $2,000 and appointed guardian to John Turner an old and infirm man at Shelby County, Tennessee.36

     John Turner died before April 1832 in Shelby County, Tennessee, when his will was probated.37

     His estate was probated in April 1832 in Shelby County, Tennessee, State of Tennessee}
                    April Session A. D. 1832
Shelby County Court}

     This the Last Will and Testament of John Turner, deceased was produced in court and proven by the oaths of James R. Harroll (sic) and the non-residence of Charles H. Stone and the other witness thereto and his signature proven by the oath of B.H. Hawkins and ordered to be recorded.
Recorded January 27, 1833. Ro Lawrence CSCC (clerk.)37

     After John's death, William S. Turner and Terisha Turner were both identified in a lawsuit as brothers of James Turner, husband of Nancy Goodrum, entitled Nelly Goodrum vs. Robert & Susan Mills at Sumner County, Tennessee.38

     On 3 October 1839, Mary Turner Rives writes her son, Robert, and reports that "Uncle John Turner and family moved from Amherst to that State (Tennessee) and I heard of them in Wilson Co (created in 1799 from Sumner County)."39

     On 16 October 1873, Louisa B. Turner Locke wrote a letter to the historian Lyman S. Draper from Hartsville, Trousdale County, Tennessee, in which she provided detailed information about her father (James Turner), grandparents (John Turner and Millie Suddarth), aunts (Sally Caffrey, Mary Read, and Elizabeth Tinsley), uncles (Terisha Turner, William Turner), and sister (Mary A. Tinsley). She also states that Samuel S. Turner was the son of her uncle Terisha Turner. She even comments on "old Aunt Lyon" who died in Carthage, Tennessee at a very old age. I am unsure exactly who this old aunt is.5

     On 20 October 1873, Samuel S. Turner wrote another letter on this date to historian Lyman S. Draper in which he names his grandfather John Turner, his father Terisha Turner and his uncle James Turner. He mentions James' daughter Louisa B. Locke who lived in Hartsville, Tennessee. He also mentions his older brother Sumpter Turner and Sumpter's son, Thomas Sumpter Turner who then lived in Virginia.40

     On 2 December 1873, Mary Ann Tinsley wrote a letter to Lyman S. Draper on this date in which she references her sister, Louisa B. Locke, and a deceased brother, John G. Turner who resided in Sumner County, Tennessee. She states her grandmother was Milley Suddarth who married John Turner in Albemarle County, Virginia and later moved to Sumner County. Mary thinks Milley died there in 1809 or 1810. Mary also mentions Milley's sister, Agnes Suddarth, who married Francis Weathered and moved to Sumner County. She states that her own father was James S. Turner and that his sister Elizabeth married Moses Tinsley. Mary then states she married Isaac T. Tinsley, son of Elizabeth and Moses Tinsley (making Isaac her first cousin). Finally, she mentions her cousin Sumpter Turner who lived in New Orleans.17

A Problem of Gender

     I have puzzled for years over a so-called daughter, John or Johnnie as listed in Reliques of the Rives. I believe the author made a serious mistake in the gender of this individual.1 John Turner was administrator of his mother's estate in 1837. I could find no other John of the right age to have acted in this capacity for Joannah Rives Turner.

     Nor could I ever find a marriage with a (--?--) Milner wherein Milner was the male, or any other documentation to support a gender of female in this marriage. I have decided after reading the estate administration papers to change this individual's gender to male.
     John Turner was born between 1776 and 1794, son of Terisha Turner and Joannah Rives.3
     He was also known as Johnnie or, as Jack.

     Reliques of the Rives claims John was female and married (--?--) Milner. I have searched relentlessly for this marriage using both genders and cannot find it even when I stretch the possible marriage year from 1786-1860. I believe the author made a serious error with this and therefore am deleting this marriage.1

     On 5 February 1813, I think this probably is the John Turner who obtained a marriage license with Peggy Baskett with Thomas White (his brother-in-law) and William Reeves (his uncle) as securities at Warren County, North Carolina. One undocumented website seems to indicate John Turner was part of the "other" Turner family in Warren County to which there seems to be a relationship, but this relationship is currently undefined.4

     John Turner married Margaret Baskett on 5 February 1813 in Warren County, North Carolina.4

     In 1837, administration of the estate of Joanna Rives Turner was granted to John Turner at February Court in Warren County, North Carolina.5

     In 1838, John Turner, as administrator of his mother's estate, brought suit against Asa Stephens in April Court in Warren County, North Carolina.6

     John Turner married Sarah Parker Buchanan on 27 July 1839 in Warren County, North Carolina.7

     John Turner died before 5 September 1860 on which date his wife was listed as head of household in the 1860 census.8

     John Turner was born in 1863, son of Lawson Turner and Susan Turner, in Pike County, Illinois. Depending on when in 1863, the 1870 census agrees or could indicate a birth year of c1864.1,2

     On 9 September 1876, Lawson Turner, in his will, asked that all his bottom land be sold at a private sale. He appointed his sons Richard and George Turner as executors and attorneys in case that their Deed shall be as valid. The remainder of his property was to remain for behalf of Margaret and John Turner as long as Margaret remains single and George shall have full and entire control of said property for the benefit of Margaret and John. If Margaret remarries and John becomes of age, the all of said property is to be sold to the highest bidder. He bequeaths to my daughter Henrietta Wells now in Oregon $100 and the remainder of my children, the children of my last wife Susan S. Turner to receive the remainder of the money equally.3

     John married Fluella Martin Fisher, 19, daughter of John P. Fisher and Lucilla S. Thompson, on 25 November 1884 in Ralls County, Missouri.4,5

     John Turner died on 8 December 1902 in Corvallis, Benton County, Oregon,6 and was buried in Riverside Cemetery, Albany, Linn County, Oregon.7,6,8,9

     On 13 December 1902,
     "After several days heavy drinking John Turner, ticket agent of the Corvalis & Eastern Railroad, committed suicide at his home in this city at 12:45 o'clock today by shooting himself through the head with a revolver.

     Turner had been putting in the forenoon by settling up his accounts at the various stores in town, and shortly before noon remarked to a friend that he did not owe any man a dollar. But he did not seem in his usual good spirits, seemingly being the subject of an attack of melancholy, and was drinking considerable (sic). Shortly after 12 o'clock Turner started home, and went to an upstairs bedroom. At about 12:45 P. M., his family was startled by hearing the report of a revolver. Upon going up stairs, they were confronted by the awful sight of Turner's massive form stretched in a reclining posture on the bed, weltering in a pool of blood, which flowed from bullet wound in the head. The dead man was in his shirt sleeves and had removed his collar and tie.

     The shooting was done with a heavy long-barrel Colt's revolver 38-caliber. Turner, after stretching himself on the bed, near the edge, had with his right hand placed the end of the revolver against the left temple; so near that the powder from the explosion burned the hair. After firing the fatal shot the hand dropped to the side, the wrist being bent so that when the revolver was released by the relaxing fingers, it laid by the side of the deceased, pointing toward his head.

     The bullet entered the left temple, above the line with the eye, at the margin of the hair, and about two inches in front of the ear. The ball passed through the head, coming out even with the top of the right ear, and about one-half of an inch back of it. The ball lodged in the pillow, beneath the head of the deceased, where it was later found by the coroner's jury.

     No cause for Turner's action can be definitely assigned. The Corvallis & Eastern official's report that he was always a trusted employe, and there is no shortage in buiness accounts with them. On the dresser in the room was (sic) found two notes, one addressed to William Faber, proprietor of the Albany brewery, and the other follows:

     'Flewella: May God watch over you and my child, Any bills or notes come to you with my name to them, they are legitimate. Pay them all. Have Eiks and Woodman care for me, my wife and my child. JOHN.'"

     "The note was written on the back of a programme for a musical recital, and was so scrambled and run together as to be hardly intelligible.

     Coroner Fortmiller was at once notified. He empaneled a jury and held an inquest in the room where the suicide was committed, before the body had been touched. A verdict of suicide was rendered in a very short time.

     John Turner was one of the best-known men in Albany. He came here about 10 years ago from Milan, Mo., and entered the employ of Corvallis & Eastern Railroad Company as ticket agent, which position he has since retained. He was noted for his jovial disposition, and waa the greatest 'josher' in the city. He left a wife and daughter."10

Untangling Two John Turners in Sumner County, Tennessee

     I am greatly indebted to Jerry Turner whose documented research has helped me untangle two John Turners in Sumner County, Tennessee, both of whom were descendants of Old Terisha Turner.

     Let me explain that at no time did this man ever use the middle initial L. Middle names were quite uncommon prior to the Revolution unless one were a member of an "aristocratic" family such as the Lees of Virginia. The (L) has been added by family historians as an aid to separating the many descendants of Terisha and Stephen Turner named John.

     Despite what Mrs. Richardson says, this man, whom she names John E. Turner, was not the son of John Turner and Mildred Suddarth.4 She has totally confused John E. with John (L) Turner.

     According to a letter written by John and Mildred Turner's granddaughter, Louisa B. Locke, John and Millie had three sons: James, William and Tarachy (Terisha); and three daughters: Mary Read; Elisabeth Tinsley and Sally Caffry.5
     John (L) Turner was born between 1766 and 1771 in Albemarle County, Virginia Colony, because he was between 16 and 21 years of age on the 1787 Amherst County, Virginia tax list.6,7,8 He also is reported to have been born in 1766.9

     John and Elizabeth Bailey obtained a marriage bond on 14 June 1791 at Amherst County, Virginia, with John Bailey as security and Jon Crews, and Wm. Loving as witnesses10

     On 19 November 1792, John (L) Turner, probably the bride's brother, was security for the marriage bond of Leonard Phillips Jr. and Elizabeth Turner at Amherst County, Virginia.11

     On 24 November 1805, he is named Jno. and left 150 acres where he lives in his father's will of this date.12,13

     On 25 December 1807, Nelson County was created from Amherst County with its government forming the following year.

     On 23 October 1809, John and his wife Elizabeth conveyed 385 acres on the Rockfish to Henry and Samuel Turner for £200 with boundary lines described as: Rich Cove Creek, Wm. Leigh, Henry Turner, the branch, top of the Little Mountain, Terisha Turner. Witnesses: Terisha Turner, Matt. Langford, Terisha Turner, Edwd. Harris and two Justices of Peach: Jno. Mosby; Jno. Diggs at Nelson County, Virginia.14

     On 23 October 1809, John and his wife, Elizabeth, conveyed a Moiety of the mill on Cove Creek and on 80 acres of land to Henry and Samuel Turner for £800, beginning at Samuel Anderson line at the first branch below the said Mill, and down the said Branch to the Creek and then crossing the said Creek and ? the same to the Spring branch of Henry Turner Senr, then with the line of Henry Turner to the line of Martin Dawson then with the line of the said Dawson to the lind of Samuel Anderson and with said Andersons line to the beginning. Witnesses: Terisha Turner, Matt Langford, Terisha Turner and Edward Harris at Nelson County, Virginia.15

     "Based on an examination of the description of the will of James Turner and the land sold to Henry and Samuel Turner in 1809, it appears that the executors of the James Turner will permitted all of the Lyons Mill property (the mill and the adjoining 80 acres) to be sold by John L. Turner and his wife Elizabeth. Otherwise it is not clear how John L. Turner gained ownership of the remaining 1/2 of the mill and ownership of the 80 acres referenced in his father's will. Perhaps that is the reason two Justices of the Peace witnessed the deed transfer" in Nelson County, Virginia.16

     Could this be one of the three men named John Turner in the reconstructed 1810 census. Each was listed in a separate company: Captain Blakemore's; Captain Bradley's; and, Captain McCall's?17

     On 17 August 1812, an Administrators Account for the estate of James Turner was listed by Jno. Turner (John L. Turner); will expenses; bond of Terisha Turner; Jas. Turner; Nancy Turner; Milly Turner in Amherst County, Virginia.18,19

     On 24 June 1818, Isaac Bledsoe, Henry Bledsoe, James Weatherral and Milly Bledsoe, Executors of Abram Bledsoe, Decd, conveyed to John Turner, for $1,610, 184 acres beginning at the southeast corner Jesse Hughes on west bank of Bledsoe's Creek at Sumner County, Tennessee. Witnesses: James Turner (his son), Nelson Turner (his son), and John Thompson.20,21

     In 1819, John bought another 165 acres on Bledsoe Creek from Harris Walton for $600. Witnesses: Nelson Turner and Nathaniel Parker at Sumner County, Tennessee.22

     On 5 June 1826, a land grant to John Turner and Nelson Turner was signed at Nashville for 100 acres on waters of Bledsoes Creek at Sumner County, Tennessee, which had been applied for on 13 Jul 1824 with the survey bearing the date of 13 Jan 1825 and Warrant Number 3240.23

     In 1828, John sold to John Branham and Greenbury Harris for $310, 14 acres on Bledsoe Creek. This was land on which he lived where there was a mill. Witness: James H. Turner (his son) at Sumner County, Tennessee.24

     In 1833, John Turner bought 76 acres on the east fork of Bledsoe Creek for $800. Witnesses: James H. Turner (his son) and T. P. Bledsoe at Sumner County, Tennessee.25

     On 8 February 1834, James W. Bledsoe conveyed to John Turner 76 acres on the E Fork Bledsoe Creek for $800. Registered 9 Apr 1834 at Sumner County, Tennessee.26

     John (L) Turner left a will dated on 18 May 1835 in Sumner County, Tennessee, in which he names Nelson Bailey as his "eldest son" and gives him land bought of Harris Walton and 1/4 of the tract where Richard C. Johnston lives. He names his son, James, and his daughters Sally Hanner, a widow; Francis Johnston; Rebecca Johnston; Elizabeth Barten; Eliza Carter; and, Mary Ann Henley. Executors are: Nelson B. Turner and Wm. M. Carter. The will was witnessed by J. A. Blackmore, W. B. Smith and Wm Durham.

     John Austin Turner was born on 29 January 1839, son of James H. Turner and Martha Jane Johnson, in Sumner County, Tennessee.1,2

     In April 1846, Nelson Bailey Turner, his uncle, is named his Guardian at Sumner County, Tennessee.

     On 29 November 1848, as a result of an Exparte Final Decree, John's guardian, Nelson B. Turner conveyed three tracts of land: 165 acres, 50 acres and 141.25 acres to him. Registered 1 Dec 1848 at Sumner County, Tennessee.3

     On 6 October 1849, a hearing at Chancery Court at Sumner County, Tennessee, was held on this date as well as on the 7th regarding who was to raise John. His uncle, Nelson Bailey Turner was trying to get him as he did not believe that his mother's second husband, Enoch Simpson, was the proper father for the boy.1

     In February 1853, Nelson Bailey Turner petitioned the Court at Sumner County, Tennessee, to permit John to select another Guardian so Nelson could resign his Guardianship.4

     In March 1853, John, said to be 14 years of age, selected John W. Head as his Guardian. Mr. Head appeared with James M. Head and Pascal Head his security and pledged a bond of $10,000. Nelson B. Turner thereby was released from Guardianship at Sumner County, Tennessee.4

     John Austin Turner died on 9 September 1853 at age 14 in Tennessee,2 and was buried in Simpson Cemetery, Bethpage, Sumner County, Tennessee.
     Travel east of Gallatinn on Highway 31-E, turn north on Rock Bridge Road and travel approximately 3.4 miles (if you get to Red Tuttle Road, you've gone too far). The cemetery is about 100 yards west of the road up a small rise, under trees.2

     The Court finally decided that John's heirs were his mother, Martha Simpson, and his four half-siblings, Thomas B; Penelope E; Magdalena F; and, Joseph R. Simpson.5

     John Clark Turner was born on 5 October 1900, son of Harry W. Turner and Verda Bell Clark, in Greenbriar, Greenbriar County, West Virginia.1,3

     He performed his Military Service on 1 May 1917 by enlisting in the Army and serving as a Musician, 1st Class, during World War I.4,5

     John ended military service on 28 July 1919.5

     In 1920, he was attending West Virginia Wesleyan College where he was a member of the Y.M.C.A., Treasurer of the Homiletic Association and the Webster Debating Club at Buckhannon County, West Virginia.6

     He appears to have been married to a Eugenia (--?) as shown on his 1942 Draft Registration. I have not been able to find a marriage record as of 27 Feb 2021.3

     John registered for the draft on 14 February 1942 at Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio. He was 41 years of age and employed by the C. & O. Railway Company in Cincinnati. He is described as being 6' 1 1'2" in height, 200 pounds with brown eyes, black hair and a dark 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.3

     John Clark Turner died on 28 August 1986 at age 85 in Charles, Kanawha County, West Virginia,4 and was buried in Alvon Methodist Church Cemetery, Alvon, Greenbrier County, West Virginia.4
