     Samuel James Turner was born on 3 April 1895, son of Samuel Francis Turner and Sally Beck Gough, in Pedlar Mills, Amherst County, Virginia.4,1,2

     Samuel registered for the draft on 5 June 1917 at Cayuga County, New York. He was 22 years of age and living in Montezuma, New York where he worked as a Hoisting Engineer for Scott Brothers, was single, but claimed exemption for Tuberculosis of the Hip. He is described as of medium height and build with brown 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.2

     Samuel married Marion H. Holmes in 1920. I am unable to find a marriage record for them as of 4 Apr 2021.5

     Samuel James Turner died on 23 December 1975 at age 80 in St. Petersburg, Pinellas County, Florida,6,7 and was buried in Saint Lukes Episcopal Church Cemetery, Pedlar Mills, Amherst County, Virginia.6

Martha C. Goodall d. b 24 Oct 1850
Last Edited5 Jul 2021
     Samuel Stone Turner was born on 10 December 1814, son of Terisha Turner and Mary Dalton, in Sumner County, Tennessee.1

     Samuel, 18, married Martha C. Goodall on 30 September 1833 in Sumner County, Tennessee. What is interesting is that looking at the actual Matrimony certificate, the date clearly reads 30th day of September A. D. 1833. The index reads 30 Apr 1833.4,5

     On 4 March 1867, Samuel Stone Turner is listed on the voter's register in Sonora, Tuolumne County, California.2

     On 15 July 1870, there's another Samuel S. Turner enumerated on the 1870 census who was born c1814 in Virginia, living in Lunenburg County, age 56 with a Martha A Turner, age 58, and: Henry, age 21; Emma S. age 19; James, age 16; George Atkinson, age 35; Phena Atkinson, age 24; and Lula Atkinson, age 1 - all of whom were born in Virginia.6

     On 2 October 1873, Samuel wrote a letter on this date from Sonora, Califorania, to historian Lyman S. Draper in which he provided little family information except that his grandthers Turner and Dalton were descended from Enlgish people who came to Virginia before the Revolution.7

     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.8

     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.9

     On 17 November 1873, Thomas Sumpter Turner, of Louisa County, Virginia, wrote a letter to historian Lyman S. Draper in response to a query of his uncle Samuel S. Turner in which he states he as no additional information but has always heard that he and his father were named for General Sumter. In this letter, he sent a clipping of the obituary of Richard P. Suddarth, a grandnephew of Thomas Sumter which ran in the Richmond Dispatch on 4 Nov 1873. Richard P. Suddarth was the son of William Suddarth, the eldest son of James and Patience Sumpter Suddarth.10

     On 15 December 1873, Wilson D. Turner, of Enon College, Trousdale County, Tennessee, wrote a letter to historian Lyman S. Draper in which he references his brother Samuel confirming Wilson to be another son of Terisha and Mary Dalton Turner. He mentions his great-grandmother Patience Sumpter who married a Suddarth and died in Albemarle County, Virginia.11

     Sarah Turner was born in 1779, daughter of John Turner and Mildred Suddarth.4
     She was also known as Sally.

     Sarah and William Caffery obtained a marriage bond on 10 August 1796 in Amherst County, Virginia, with Joseph Newman as surety and Wm. Barret as witness. William and Sarah are each described as "of Lexington Parish."5

     Joseph Newman made an oath that Sally Turner, daughter of John Turner, was 21 years of age on 10 August 1796.6

     They have been impossible to find in the 1800 census under the surname Caffery or Coffey as of 14 Dec 2016.

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

     On 24 August 1827, 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?)7

     Sarah Caffey died before 1850 because she wasn't enumerated with her husband.8

     I cannot find death or burial information on Find A Grave as of 2 Oct 2019.

     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.3

     Sarah Turner was born on 27 March 1781, daughter of Stephen Turner and Susannah Hamner.1
     She was also known as Salley and as Sally.

     On 14 October 1799, she is named in her father's will of this date and was unmarried.2

     Sarah and Moses Thornton obtained a marriage bond on 23 December 1800 in Warren County, North Carolina.3,4,5

     I believe Leonard H. Thornton, enumerated in 1860 living with Moses, was their son as was Wiley Thornton (living immediately adjacent to Moses), but, I have no documentation at this time for this.6

     On 3 August 1847, I Moses Thornton of the County of Pittsylvania do make this my last will and testament as follows:

First I give to my wife Sally during life all that portion of my land lying on the East Side of the Henry Road, on which I now reside together with one third of my slaves for life. Also
one third of all other personal property owned by me and such portion of my household and kitchen furniture as she may desire all of which she may take at the appraised value.

Secondly I desire my Executor hereinafter named to sell all the balance of my land except that held by my wife to convey the same and divide the proceeds thereof equally among my seven children and to divide the balance of my slaves and personal property (after allowing my wifes portion) equally among them. Such division of my slaves to be made either in kind or by sale as may be desired by my children or a majority of them.

In the division of my estate among my children I desire and direct the following advancements heretofore made to be accounted for vis:

My son Wiley Thornton to account for $228.78
my daughter Susan, wife of Turner Gosney for $233.00
my daughter Mary, wife of John Thornton for $229.50
my son Leonard H. for $29.23
my son James E. Thornton for $58.25
my son Harden N. Thornton for $69.22
my son Presley D. Thornton for $567.20.

Thirdly after the death of my wife Sally I give the portion of my estate held by her for life to be equally divided among my aforesaid children. The land above designed for my wife is all that part my land lying on the East side of the road leading from Col. Joseph Martin's in Henry towards Danville.

Lastly I do hereby constitute and appoint my son Wiley Thornton my Executor. Witness my hand this 3rd day of August 1847.
               (signed) Moses (X) Thornton
Witness: William M. Tredway, Ezekial Giles, Greenberry Thornton in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.7

     Find a Grave has a memorial page for her that claims she was born 27 Mar 1779 and died 10 Jul 1850 with a non-cemetery burial, although a note on the site states she is buried 1/4 mile off the road behind the house at 244 West Fork Road, Cascade, Virginia. Absolutely no documentation is available. This date of date is either incorrect or several census enumerations had her age incorrectly.8

     Bottom line: I cannot find any more relevant data as of 30 Jun 2020.

     On 28 January 1846, Sarah is not mentioned in her mother's estate settlement document dated 28 Jan 1846 which is no longer online at members.aol.com/jogt/turnerly.htm. Does this indicate that she is deceased?

     Sarah Ann Turner married William H. Haden. I cannot find any documentation for this marriage on Ancestry or FamilySearch as of 11 May 2021. All I have is what was in the Hopkins family book. The only record I could find on FamilySearch was for a William H. Hayden who married Sarah A. Turner on 8 Oct 1902 with this Sarah A. born in 1871 well after this Sarah's father had died in 1863. I then found a Sarah A. Hayden living in Maryland in the 1860 census, but this woman was born in Maryland between 1816-1817. Again, this cannot be this Sarah A.1

     Sarah L. Turner was born in 1802, daughter of William Turner and Sarah Lyon, in Buckingham County, Virginia.3,5

     Sarah and Edward Staples obtained a marriage bond on 13 June 1818 in Amherst County, Virginia, with William T. Turner and John L. Turner as witnesses to the bond. I don't know who the John L Turner was because all the ones in my database are too young to be a witness.

     I cannot find this bond on the Amherst County Marriage Register. It should be on page 251, but defnitely is not there. I have paged through a digitized copy of the original register and this marriage is not there (not at the end of 1817 or all through 1818.)6

     William Turner, father of the bride, gave consent to the marriage on 13 June 1818. I cannot find this bond on the Amherst County Marriage Register. It should be on page 251, but defnitely is not there.6

     On 25 May 1828, Edward died, leaving her with six little girls.7

     Sarah L. Staples married Lawson Turner, 25, son of Henry Turner and Rachel Stovall, on 17 November 1830 in Buckingham County, Virginia. The Lynchburg Virginian reported that Lawson Turner, of Amherst County, married Mrs. Sarah Staples, of Buckingham County, on this date with The Rev. Thomas Burge officiating.8

     In 1832, the heirs of Edward Staples owned Stonewall Mills and two-thirds of his estate. In 1839, 85 acres of dower was added.9

     On 16 March 1833, Lawson and his wife, Sally, and George S. Turner conveyed to Stephen B. Turner for $5 a tract of land lying and being in Amherst County on both sides of Porridge Creek bounded by Jesse Mundy, James London Jr, the land of the estate of JUames London Sr, deced., Jacob Woodson, Alexander Jewell and William Turner. This land was willed to Lawson Turner and George S. Turner by their father Henry Turner, decd. in Amherst County, Virginia.10

     On 20 December 1833, Stephen B. Turner, Lawson Turner and Sally his wife, George S. Turner and Rachel Turner conveyed to Jesse Mundy for $535.50 a track of land lying on both sides of Porridge Creek and containing by recent survey 119 acres beginning at Poplar Bush on the south side of Porridge Creek in the dividing line between the said Jesse Mundy and Henry Turner heirs . . . . (complicated land survey description) in Amherst County, Virginia.11

     Sarah L. Turner died on 11 August 1834.
     "DEPARTED this life, on the 11inst., after a painful illness of eleven days, Mrs. Sarah L. Turner, consort of Mr. Lawson Turner, of Amherst County, Aged 32 years, leaving behind her a bereaved husband, eight helpless children, and a numerous train of relatives and friends, to mourn her untimely and irreparable loss. How transitory are all sublunary (sic) jobs! How evanescent the short tenure by which we hold our frail existence! But a few days ago, she whose loss we now deplore, moved joyously in the peaceful little circle of her household, fondly dreaming of coming years of domestic comfort. Who would have thought that thus son, that active step and dulcet voice would be stilled and hushed in the 'dull cold silence' of the deep damp grave! But, Death enters, and there's no defence!' - - Alas! how often do we have to submit to the dire visitation of the monster, and yield up to his chill embrace the cherished ones of our bosom. He enters, at an unexpected moment, the happy domestic circle, and panics all with horror; regardless of the prayers and cries of agonized friends, he selects the loveliest for his prey. In vain may we cling around them, with imploring looks and streaming eyes; heedless of our woe, with stern purpose and fixed grasp, he tears from our fond embrace the very object that makes life most dear to us, and leaves desolate the smiling group, that, but a few days before, looked forward to long years of uninterrupted bliss. But why -- should we sorrow for our departed friend? Our loss is her eternal gain. Ten years, an exemplary member of the M.E. (Methodist Episcopal) Church, she died in the triumphs of the Gospel, with a full assurance of a blissful entrance into that rest prepared above for the people of God."

     Find A Grave does not have a burial listing for her as of 3 Feb 2019.12,13

     In 1839, the land charged to Lawson Turner for taxes reverted back to the heirs of Edward Staples after his wife, Sarah L.'s, death.14

     Mrs. Lawson Turner's dower acreage of 85 acres (reverted back from L. Turner) added to the estate of Edmond Staples was sold in 1832 to Lawson Turner.15
