     James Turner's obituary reads:
     "MAJOR JAS. TURNER HAS PASSED AWAY

     "Major James Turner, one of Marshall's oldest and most prominent citizens, died about 8:40 p.m. Wednesday of an illness lasting nearly a year. Last July he suffered from an attack from which he never entirely recovered, although he was bedfast very little."

     "He was born in Gallatin, Tenn., in 1836, and moved to Texas in 1857, and settled in Marshall and engaged in the practice of law. He married in Marshall in 1859 to Miss Eudora Knox, who died a few years ago."

     "Major Turner served as a Confederate soldier throughout the entire four years of the civil war, enlisting in the first company that was formed in Marshall. He served mostly in Colonel Ector's brigade. Since the close of the war he has taken very little part in the United Confederate Veterans, being naturally of a very quiet disposition."

     "On the sixth day of June, 1868, he had the misfortune to lose a limb by a shot that was fired in the Harrison County court house, but that did not greatly inconvenience him in his profession, which he practiced until about a year before his death."

     "He served as attorney for the Gould lines in Texas until about twenty five years ago, and he was considered one of Marshall's most able and eminent lawyers in his time. He was conspicuously connected with some of the most famous cases that have ever come before the courts of Texas in both civil and criminal lines."

     "He was well known all over this part of the country, especially in Texas, and has thousands of friends who mourn his death."

     "He is survived by four children: Mrs. J. E. Blair, of Corsicana, Tex; Mrs. Eugene Bullock, of Dallas, Tex; R. K. Turner, justice of the peace of precinct number 3, Harrison county and N. P. Turner, a civil engineer of Camaguay, Cuba."
The Marshall Messenger, Marshall, Texas, issue of 13 May 1913, page 2.3

     Nathaniel Parker Turner died on 29 November 1941 at age 662 and was buried in Algoma Cemetery South and North, Marshall, Harrison County, Texas.2

     Neal Waskom Turner was born on 18 February 1879 in Henderson, Rusk County, Texas,4,5 and baptized. By Reverend R. W. Thompson.

     Neal, 21, married Martha Ellen Eddleman, 22, daughter of Reuben Wesley Eddleman and Elizabeth Jane Lovel, on 22 November 1900 in Cisco, Eastland County, Texas. I cannot find a marriage record for them as of 30 May 2021 on either FamilySearch OR Ancestry.com.6

     He was the Methodist minister at Corsicana, Texas.3

     Neal Waskom Turner died of accidental drowning while trying to save his son and another boy from drowning on 22 August 1914 at age 35 in Corsicana, Navarro County, Texas,7,3 and was buried on 25 November 1914 in Oakwood Cemetery, Cisco, Eastland County, Texas.8,9

     "This morning about 8 o'clock Rev. Neil (sic) W. Turner, pastor of the Sixteenth Avenue Methodist Church, accompanied by his wife and two children and a number of boys, went to a lake about three miles west of town for a picnic. Soon after reaching the lake four or five of the boys went out in a boat. It seems that their weight overloaded the boat and it began to 'dip' and some of the boys jumped out."

     "Mr. Turner, seeing their predicament and peril of the boys, called to them to hold on to the boat, and then he jumped into the water to rescue them. As Mr. Turner reached the boat his son, Herman, and Earl Wooley threw their arms about his neck and the three went down together in about seven feet of water. The bodies never came up again, all three being drowned."

     "The bodies were in the water about thirty minutes before they were rescued. Mr. Turner is a well known Methodist preacher and has been here about three years. His father lives in Dallas. No funeral arrangements have been made yet."

From The August 1914 Texas Advocate:
     "Rev. Neal Turner, pastor of our Eleventh Avenue Church, Corsicana was drowned in a lake near that city. . . . The news of this tragedy filled the Central Texas Conference and even a wider circle with grief almost unimaginable."

From The Central Texas Conference Annual Session of 1915:
     "Neal W. Turner was a prince among men. Nature had generously endowed him with gifts. Physically he was every inch a man - - athletic, handsome, and possessed of a winning personality. HIs intellect was of high order and finely poised. In breadth and sweep of soul he was God's nobleman. There was nothing little in his entire make-up. The associate with him was to feel the kinship of a real man and catch the inspiration of a noble life."

     Mrs. Edith Turner Wren said on 12 May 1992: "My father had no life insurance until just one time before his death he visited a numerologist who told him he would meet with an accidental death. He went immediately and took out a $3000.00 life insurance policy. If it had not been for that money, my mother would have been in a bad position financially."9

     In April 1846, Nelson is confined to bed and cannot be present at his brother, James H. Turner's, deathbed.

     He is named Guardian of John Turner, minor, son of James Turner at Sumner County, Tennessee.

     Between 1848 and 1849, a case in Chancery Court was brought between Enoch Simpson (Martha's husband) and Nelson B. Turner over the guardianship of John Turner, Nelson's nephew, which ran over a period of two years.

     A number of depositions were taken from family members. On 6 Apr 1849, Elizabeth Turner Buntin, about 50 years of age, testified that Martha Johnson Turner Simpson wanted Nelson to have management of her son's estate and that her father should not have his hands on it. She further testified that Martha remarried only six months or so after James' death.

     Benjamin Johnson, married to Nelson and James' sister, Rebecca testified that he had known Nelson Bailey Turner for about thirty years and Mr. Simpson some ten or twelve years. He'd known Martha Turner Simpson for about twenty-six or twenty-seven years. He testified to the friendship between Nelson and his brother, James. He did hear James call for his son as he lay dying, but when Martha turned to get the child, she was stopped by Rebecca and Elizabeth Buntin (his sisters). He further testified that the best interest of the child would be served by Nelson B. Turner.

     James Gwin (who lived about a half mile from Enoch Simpson) testified that Simpson had said that if John (James' son) went to the Turner's (Nelson's) house, he could not "stay at his house." When asked who would do more to promote the interest of the child, he was confident of Mrs. Simpson, but "can't say as to Mr. Simpson."

     Thomas J. Flowers (married to a cousin of Mrs. Simpson - it is believed Martha Ann John was born c1816, but her parentage is unsure, and married Thomas Jefferson Flowers on 5 May 1838) testified that he had known Enoch Simpson for some six years and Mrs. Simpson for ten or eleven years. I lives near the Simpsons and done business with him and Gwin. He stated he had seen Mr. Simpson drink more freely than was good for him and at one time he did use vulgar language. He stated he had known Nelson B. Turner for about twenty years, believes that a child could be better educated at the Turner's. He did say that he had never seen Nelson drink too much, but they had shared liquor occasionally.

     Susanna Johnson (James' and Nelson's sister) testified "We (she and her mother) stopped at Mr. Simpson & asked Aunt Martha to let John to go home with us. She said he mite go and he started with us & she called to stop & said she reckoned he had better not go & said that without Mr. Simpson were there, he mite not like it if he went & John were very anxious to go & cried when his mother told him to get out of the buggy." She further stated that she had not seen him at her father's until this week, that the distance from her father's to Nelson's place was about twelve miles, and that she had attended parties at his house where they played cards and danced. (I don't have a Susanna Johnson as a sister to James and Nelson Bailey Turner. Francis, their sister, was married to Richard Collins Johnson.)

     James Gwin testified to opposing counsel that he was well acquainted with both parties and their neighborhoods, pointing out that Mr. Turner lives about 1 mile and 3/4 from Mount Zion whereas Mr. Simpson is about three 1/2 miles. Furthermore, he had a preference for the neighborhood of that of the Turner family. In answer to the question "Please state from your acquaintance with Mr. Simpson and family is behind the times and the customs and fashions of the territory if so how far?" He replied "Some twenty or twenty five years and a considerable portion of his neighborhood and associates are also in the same condition. Mr. Simpson and myself were partners in a mill for several years." When asked if Mr. Simpson was a stubborn man in his disposition, he said that he was. However, he said he would be unpleasant, but not ungrateful, for the mother of the child for him to be removed. The child would find it unpleasant. He commented that the N.B. Turner family occupied the middle or medium ground in society, that the times are much better now than twenty to twenty-five years ago, and that Mr. Simpson's children are very limited in their education.

     William Johnson testified to an encounter between himself, Jo. D. Turner and Mr. Simpson:"Jo D. Turner and myself were at the camp meeting at the Dry Fork. Mrs. Simpson invited us to go home with her to dinner. We went sometime after dinner. Jo D. were walking the floor and had or had John in his arms. Mrs. Simpson were sitting in the room. Jo D. had on a new pair pants with buttons on from the ankles near the knees. Mrs. Simpson took hold of one of the buttons and said she would cut one off or pull it off. Jo D. took hold of her "yeore" [no idea what this means] and shuck it and turned off. Mr. Simpson came out of the piaser [pisser?] & took Jo D. by the arm & pointed to the door. Jo D. asked him what he had done. Mr. Simpson said he did not want to have any words about it but if he did not get out, he would put him out. Mrs. Simpson spoke and said Mr. Simpson we always fooled & played in Mr. Turners life time & meant no harm. Mr. Simpson said, I don't know what you come for, for you was not wanted when you were fetched. Jo D. then got his horse and left. I then left the house until Mr. Bradley & Mr. McGlothlin had left. I then returned to the house & found Mr. Simpson & his wife quarreling about the way Mr. Simpson had treated her & Jo D. I cannot remember all that was said but what I do remember, I remember that Mrs. Simpson told Mr. Simpson that if he didn't mind how he talked & went on that she would not stay with him but would go back to the old place. Mr. Simpson told her that if she wanted to go she could go. Mrs. Simpson threw up some woman on the north side of the ridge to Mr. Simpson, he then threw up Mark Moore & Jo D. Turner to her. She then told him that she loved Mark Moores little finger better than she did his whole body, in run of the conversation Sanford Simpson, the son of Enoch Simpson, gave Martha Simpson the boy." He then stated his relationship: my mother and N. B. Turner were brother and sister; my father and Mrs. Simpson's father were brothers. "I am well acquainted with the parties the friendship were very good between the two Turner families and the children of N. B. Turner. Aunt Martha were all ways playful in the life time of James."

     John T. Carter testified that he went with N. B. Turner to the north side of the ridge to Sanford Simpson to demand "John the ward & told Sanford that he thought as he were his guardian he had the right of selecting the place for the child to go to school at. Sanford told him that the boy should not go without the consent of his mother. Turner told Sanford he would take the boy to his mother he would go and see her about him. Sanford promised to send him back. Subsequently, Sanford stated the boy were brought there [to him] for his accommodation to go to school with his son. He further testified that the school house in is Trouts district, was very sorry and even the neighborhood is uniformed, quite dissipated, and that Sanford's children had very limited education. He stated the character of the schools is much better in N. B. Turner's neighborhood.

     Richard Bradley testified about the above incident, telling it much the same way. After Jo D. Turner had left, he stated "Mrs. Simpson appeared to be vary much hurt and said she were sorry that he had treated the boy the way he had and said that Mr. Turner always had thought a great deal of the children & especially of Jo D."

     Benjamin Johnson, age 50, testified that he had known Martha since she was born, that he was present at James Turner's death bed, but that James and his wife spoke together briefly, but he did not hear the conversation. "I think there was a coolness between James H. Turner & Thomas Buntin in consequence of a law suit about the old man Turners mill. I have been acquainted with Mr. Nelson B. Turner for some 35 to 40 years, his character stands in my estimation as far as any man. The neighborhood he lives in stands in point of morality, as far as any of my knowledge. I was told by some of Wm. Carters family that N. B. Turner was sending his children to the Dry Fork school house or some school in that neighborhood." When asked about the relationship between N. B. and James H., he said: "They visited each other frequently. There was a good intimacy between them. James H. would always advise with N. B. Turner in almost any undertaking, in buying stock on a farming matter & etc. I believe he had more confidence in N. B. Turner than any other man, and from the confidence he had in N. B. turner, I think he would preferred him to attend to his matter to that of any other man. I was at the sale of Jas. H. Turner and I think of the bids of Martha, James H. Turners wife, that she showed a deposition to purchase the property for less than its value. I asked N. B. Turner whether it was right for her to buy this property so low or not. I do not now recollect his answer. I heard N. B> turner say to Martha that she ought to bid a fair price for the property or something near worth, as she would wrong the child out of it just right in buying the property for less than its true value. . . . . The child of Jas. H. Turner has not been with his father's connection much since Martha, Jas. H. Turners wife, married Enoch Simpson. . . . I would prefer a child of mine being place in that (N. B. Turner's) neighborhood."

     Martha A Flowers, about 30, testified that her mother and Martha's father were brother and sister and that she lived near them for about fifteen months. She further reported that Mrs. Simpson frequently said that Mr. Simpson was unwilling for John to go to N. B. Turner's house which was why she was unwilling. Ms. Flowers further stated that she had heard Mr. Simpson use vulgar language and that he mortified his wife on occasion. She told the same story about Jo D. Turner, adding "Mrs. Simpson further stated that she were vary sorry that the occurrence happen that she meant no harm, and did not believe that Jo D. Turner meant any either. Mrs. Simpson further stated that she went in the woods and thought she would have stayed there until she died. She stated that the education of the child would be better served with N. B. Turner. In response to questioning by Enoch Simpson, she testified that she had heard Mrs. Simpson say that she was unwilling to give up the raising of her son to any person. As to N. B. Turner, she was afraid he would learn bad words and might be killed by riding a horse."20

     On 26 February 1848, Enoch and Martha J. Simpson by the statutes of dower, are lawfully seized of the estate in Districts #12 and #13, containing 93 acres, sold to N. B. Turner a tract containing 19.5 acres for $320. Registered 5 Apr 1848 in Sumner County, Tennessee.21

     In February 1853, he asked to be permitted to resign his Guardianship of John A. Turner, his deceased brother's child.23

     In March 1853, he is replaced as Guardian of John A. Turner by John W. Head.23

     In December 1856, he is appointed Guardian of Almedia and M. M. Carter, minors, with John T. Carter and John S. Carr his security in bond of $20,000.23
