Separating the Multiple Turner Families in Pike County, Missouri

     Untangling the Turner families in Pike County, Missouri is not for the faint of heart. I am not completely satisfied with my work so far particularly when so many of the relationships on based solely on indirect evidence. But, I have made a start.

     First of all, there were four Turner families who originally immigrated to Pike County. The first was John Turner, a native of Maryland and thus no relative to any of the Virginia Turners who came later. John moved to Missouri in 1811 more than 20 years before the first Terisha Turner settled in Pike County. John had two sons and five daughters. During the time of serious Native American trouble, the family first moved into the fort at Fort Buffalo and then went to St. Louis where they remained until returning in 1818. This information comes from the first of my sources: The History of Pike County, Missouri, published in 1883 when Alexander was still living. One has to be careful in not confusing all these families.

     Terisha Turner, son of Henry and Rachel (Stovall) Turner and the grandson of "Ole" Terisha, was enumerated in Nelson County in 1830, but by Dec 1835 was purchasing land in Pike County. I suspect he came earlier than that as it was customary to make improvements in land. Terisha immigrated with his brothers: George Stovall Turner, Stephen Berry Turner and James S. Turner. This Terisha left no will and I've been unable so far to find an estate settlement naming his chilren, but indirect evidence leads me to believe that he had at least four children: Lorenzo D., George H., Mary, and William B. Turner. Some of this evidence is not as clear as I would like so I consider some of these children provisional (Mary, for example).

     Shortly thereafter, Terisha Turner (ID#925), son of William and Sarah (Lyon) Turner, also a grandson of "Old" Terisha, joined him. The families were closely connected with each other. Stephen brought his children: Julia Ann, Sarah Jane, Susannah (Susan), David H., George F., John C. and Thomas Turner, with him. He had two subsequent children in Missouri: Eliza V. and Robert C. Turner.

     That the families were close is demonstrated by the fact that George S. Turner took on the guardianship of this Terisha when he evidently became of "unsound mind." Whereas the 1850 census described him as "insane", I suspect he may have been suffering from dementia.

     Although I had originally studied the cited history in a local library, it now is available online. When I began studying it again in Sep 2020 I realized there was a third family from the Albemarle/Amherst/Nelson County Turners living in Pike County. According to the history book previously cited, John F. Turner, born 1798 in Amherst County, Virginia, immigrated to Missouri in 1838, settling on what was known as the Minor place. He spent only one year there before purchasing the Paxton farm 2.5 miles west of Prairieville. John moved to Louisiana in Pike County in 1845 for better schools. He served as postmaster and also kept a public house to entertain travelers. He died in Louisiana 27 Oct 1880, with his wife dying Mar 1881. The history is primarily written about his son, Alexander, born in 1835 in Virginia, who became a merchant and was still living when this history was published in 1883.

     The John F. Turner in the above paragraph was the son of Samuel Turner (b1767-b1829) and Sarah Farrar Spencer. This Samuel was the son of Stephen Turner, the man most researchers believe to have been 'Old' Terisha's brother. I have not studied this family in depth, but do have some information. For some reason, it has not been as widely followed in family histories, or at least I am unaware of them. I also had great-grandson of 'Old' Terisha who was born the same year, but did not have a middle initial. I initially confused him with Samuel and Sarah Turner's son. I have added only the direct line from Sarah F. Turner backward, rather than adding all the siblings because I have not researched Stephen's line as thoroughly as I have 'Old' Terrisha's.

     Because all the Family History Library microfilm of Nelson County, Virginia, court and deed records are locked and, therefore, only available at affiliated libraries all of which are closed due to the pandemic, I cannot use these records for verification at this time.

     It is my hope that someone reading this may be a descendant and be able to shed more light into what I've uncovered so far.4,5
     Terisha Turner was born on 10 December 1780, son of Henry Turner and Rachel Stovall, in Amherst County, Virginia.6

     Terisha and Mary Turner obtained a marriage bond on 14 June 1803 in Amherst County, Virginia, with John Turner as security and S. Garland and James Turner as witnesses.7,8,9,10

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

     On 27 December 1808, could this be the Terisha Turner who conveyed to Jas. Turner (his brother?) 200 acres on both sides of Rockfish for £120. The boundary lines were Henry Emmerson; Wm. Martin; Wm. Mosby; Conrad Mowyer; Benj. Payne; down creek to junction with the Magan (?). Witnesses: Terisha Turner (one of his cousins?); Matt. Langford; Henry Turner (father or brother?) Chas. Langford at Nelson County, Virginia.11

     On 2 April 1812, 100 acres of land appearing to be a part of James Turner's estate considered as residual and not specifically designated in his will, but left to his daughters in an undivided interest was sold to William Hamner for $500 in Nelson County, Virginia,

     The deed abstract reads: Teril (Terisha) Turner and wife, Polly; Leonard Phillips and wife, Eliza; Page Daniel (Dameron) and wife, Susannah; Henry Rittenhouse and wife, Patsey; Jno. Graves and wife, Lucy; Jesse Joblin and wife, Rebecca; Nancy; Mildred and Judith Turner conveyed to William Hamner of Albemarle. Leod. Phillips is later called Zach Phillips and Daniel is Dameron in the confusing deed . . $500; 100 acres. Lines: Cove Creek, Benj. Payne, Matthews, Saml. Anderson, mill tract. Witnesses: Saml., Henry, Terisha and Wm. Turner, Wm. H. Leigh. These signatures appear: Little Page Dameron, Henry Rittenhouse, Jno. Hopling, Susannah Dameron, Leanna Phillips, Jno. Groves, Polly Turner, Mildred Turner, Nancy Turner, Rebecca Jobling, Lucy Graves, Patsy Rittenhouse, Judith Turner.12,13

     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.

     On 30 December 1835, Terisha purchased for $25 cash and promised to pay $300 for land to be laid off including his improvements after a transaction whereby the sellers (Nally and McGinnis) obtain clear title to a tract of land for $1,000 from Leduc at Pike County, Missouri.15

     On 15 September 1837, Terisha purchased a Lot No. 12 containing about one-fourth acre in the town of Prairieville at Pike County, Missouri, for $21.25.16

     On 23 November 1840, Lorenzo D. Turner and Terisha Turner were bonded to Thomas M. Gilmer, Esq., Governor of the Commonealth in the sum of $2,000 for the court appointment of Lorenzo as Constable in the First hundred in Nelson County, Virginia.17

     On 1 April 1842, as per an agreement made on 26 Dec 1835, John W. Davis and James Reid were named commissioners to partition the land of the Dec deed for Terisha Turner and his heirs and assigns at Pike County, Missouri.18

     On 20 September 1842, a complicated Deed of Trust was created at Nelson County, Virginia. There were three major parties to this deed: Terisha Turner, his wife Mary Turner, and William B. Turner. In this deed, Mary Turner would relinquish her right-of-dower in all the lands, particularly the coveture of land sold to George H. Turner and William B. Turner and sold to Benjamin Harris & Daniel M. Harris if Terisha Turner would make suitable provision for the separate use and maintenance of Mary Turner his wife subject to her own disposal by will or otherwise. Evidently, she had not heretofore relinquished her right-of-dower in the sale to the Harris brothers. William B. Turner paid one dollar to Terisha in adknowledment of sale to him a slave and other property to wit: one negro woman named Annis and her child Leroy, one feather bed, bedstand and furniture, on bay horse and one large trunk to be purchased out of the estate of the said Terisha Turner. Should William B. suffer the said property of any disruption or the possessions and under the control of him, said Mary Turner or hire the slaves out or sell them as the said Mary Turner may direct, but at the same discretion of the said William B. Turner for and during the natural life of Mary Tuner and the profits, income, us,e enjoyment & estate to be for the sole use and benefit of Mary Turner for and during her natural life. Mary could purchase other property or change & otherwise dispose of to him with her consent. Such property is to be held in trust under this deed and Mary Turner shall have full power to pass away all property hereby conveyed or subsequently acquired by her last will and testament, but the property hereby conveyed and such as may be acquired from it are the profits and trust hereby conveyed in it is by no means to be subject to the control or contracts or debts of said Terisha Turner and if Mary Turner shall die without publishing her last will and testament the property shall pass by operator of law to those entitled thereto as his heirs.

     L(orenzo). D. Turner was one of the witnesses to Terisha's signature on the deed.19

     On 14 December 1842, Edward Worthington of Nelson County, Mary Turner and William B. Turner were parties to a deed of trust with respect to Mary's personal property and her intended marriage to Edward. Mary Turner was possessed of a considerable personal estate consisting of one negro girl Amelia, and all her children, one bed and furniture household and kitchen furniture and a sorrel mare. It was agreed that William B. Turner would hold in trust this property for Mary's sole benefit until the marriage was solemnized after which Edward would have, receive, take and enjoy all the interests and profits of said property during the joint lives of Edward and Mary Worthington for the support and maintenance of themselves, family and children. If Mary died first, her husband would have the use in trust of the property for the benefit of himself during his life and for the support and maintenance of his children begotten on the body of Mary Turner and after his death to go in equal parts to their children. But, should Edward die leaving Mary then the said property was to be at her sold control and disposal. This trust agreement was signed by Mary Turner, Edward Wormington (sic) and W. B. Turner.

     On 26 Dec 1842, Terisha Turner appeared in court in Pike County to exhibit this Deed of Trust and marriage contract which was proved by the oaths of two subscribing witnesses.

     On 28 Jul 1845, on the motion of William B. Turner, trustee, this deed of Trust and marriage contract was ordered to be certified to the County of Pike in the state of Missouri in Nelson County, Virginia.20

     On 3 January 1846, T. Turner, Administrator, published a notice of final settlement in the estate of J. P. Turner, deceased stating at at the next February term of Pike County Court he would make a final settlement of this estate.

     I do not know if J. P. Turner could have been a son of this Terisha (#901) or the other Terisha (#925) in Pike County.21

     On 13 August 1848, in Rachel Turner's will of this date, she names her sons: Stephen B Turner; George S Turner; Lawson Turner; James S Turner; Terisha Turner; and grandson George B Turner; daughters-in-law Margaret Turner; Pocahantes Turner; and daughters: Nancy Carver; Polley Omohundro; and Ruth Stone.

     Rachel asked that her Negro woman Sharlotte have the privilege of selecting either of my sons Stephen B. or George S Turner as her master. She asks that her daughter-in-law Margaret receive the sum of $20 and her daughter-in-law Pocahantes received the sum of $10.

     She requested that Stephen B. Turner pay her Doctors Bill and funeral expenses as I ahve given him my Negro woman Mary for that purpose. She bequeathed to him one new white counterpain() one bed quilt and one yarn ?. Stephen was to pay Nancy Carver the sum of $50; Polley Omohondro the sum of $50; and Ruth Stone the sum of $50.

     Rachel also stated it was her will and desire that the amount of money Lawson Turner is owning me shall remain in his hand and that he shall never be made to pay it to the balance of my children.

     She bequeathed one feather bed and furniture to her son George S. Turner. She asked that the remainder of my household and kitchen furnitute be sold and the proceeds be equally divided between my three sons: James S Turner, Terisha Turner and Lawson Turner and her grandson George B Turner.

     She appointed Stephen B. Turner and George S. Turner as executors of her will which was witnessed by Thos. R. Vaughn and Reuben H. Carver.22

     Unfortunately, I have been unable to identify all of his children from historical records.

     Terisha Turner died on 12 October 1858 at age 77 in Pike County, Missouri,23,24 and was buried in Terisha Turner Cemetery, Pike County, Missouri. The Terisha Turner Cemetery is located in Prairieville Township (T52N, R1W, survey 3131) between Highway WW and Route H on the Edward James Becker farm. The cemetery is in poor repair with all the stones loose and buried. "There are probably more stones that are completely buried in the ground."

     Terisha's stone says: "In Memory of Terrisha Turner, Born in Nelson Co., VA., Dec. 10, 1786- Died in Pike Co., Mo. Oct. 12, 1858. Aged 71 ys., 10 ms., 2 ds."

     There is a stone commenorating Edward P., son of J. and S. J. Graves, Died July 31, 1853, Aged 1 yr. 1 ms. 1 ds. Also a stone In memory of _r_ge P. Wells, Born Feb. 18, 1812, Died in Pike Co., Mo, August 31, 1841. Footstone: C>/G.P.W.

     Finally, in the cemetery is the following inscription: ___CR___-___EY__-__ER W___ - Born in Nelson Co., Va. Sept. 22, 1816 and departed this life in Pike Co., Mo., aged 26 years __ months and 6 days (stone is badly broken and pieces are missing).24

     Untangling the Turner families in Pike County, Missouri is not for the faint of heart. I am not completely satisfied with my work so far particularly when so many of the relationships on based solely on indirect evidence. But, I have made a start.

     First of all, there were four Turner families who originally immigrated to Pike County. The first was John Turner, a native of Maryland and thus no relative to any of the Virginia Turners who came later. John moved to Missouri in 1811 more than 20 years before the first Terisha Turner settled in Pike County. John had two sons and five daughters. During the time of serious Native American trouble, the family first moved into the fort at Fort Buffalo and then went to St. Louis where they remained until returning in 1818. This information comes from the first of my sources: The History of Pike County, Missouri, published in 1883 when Alexander was still living. One has to be careful in not confusing all these families.

     Terisha Turner, son of Henry and Rachel (Stovall) Turner and the grandson of "Ole" Terisha, was enumerated in Nelson County in 1830, but by Dec 1835 was purchasing land in Pike County. I suspect he came earlier than that as it was customary to make improvements in land. Terisha immigrated with his brothers: George Stovall Turner, Stephen Berry Turner and James S. Turner. This Terisha left no will and I've been unable so far to find an estate settlement naming his chilren, but indirect evidence leads me to believe that he had at least four children: Lorenzo D., George H., Mary, and William B. Turner. Some of this evidence is not as clear as I would like so I consider some of these children provisional (Mary, for example).

     Shortly thereafter, Terisha Turner (ID#925), son of William and Sarah (Lyon) Turner, also a grandson of "Old" Terisha, joined him. The families were closely connected with each other. Stephen brought his children: Julia Ann, Sarah Jane, Susannah (Susan), David H., George F., John C. and Thomas Turner, with him. He had two subsequent children in Missouri: Eliza V. and Robert C. Turner.

     That the families were close is demonstrated by the fact that George S. Turner took on the guardianship of this Terisha when he evidently became of "unsound mind." Whereas the 1850 census described him as "insane", I suspect he may have been suffering from dementia.

     Although I had originally studied the cited history in a local library, it now is available online. When I began studying it again in Sep 2020 I realized there was a third family from the Albemarle/Amherst/Nelson County Turners living in Pike County. According to the history book previously cited, John F. Turner, born 1798 in Amherst County, Virginia, immigrated to Missouri in 1838, settling on what was known as the Minor place. He spent only one year there before purchasing the Paxton farm 2.5 miles west of Prairieville. John moved to Louisiana in Pike County in 1845 for better schools. He served as postmaster and also kept a public house to entertain travelers. He died in Louisiana 27 Oct 1880, with his wife dying Mar 1881. The history is primarily written about his son, Alexander, born in 1835 in Virginia, who became a merchant and was still living when this history was published in 1883.

     The John F. Turner in the above paragraph was the son of Samuel Turner (b1767-b1829) and Sarah Farrar Spencer. This Samuel was the son of Stephen Turner, the man most researchers believe to have been 'Old' Terisha's brother. I have not studied this family in depth, but do have some information. For some reason, it has not been as widely followed in family histories, or at least I am unaware of them. I also had great-grandson of 'Old' Terisha who was born the same year, but did not have a middle initial. I initially confused him with Samuel and Sarah Turner's son. I have added only the direct line from Sarah F. Turner backward, rather than adding all the siblings because I have not researched Stephen's line as thoroughly as I have 'Old' Terrisha's.

     Because all the Family History Library microfilm of Nelson County, Virginia, court and deed records are locked and, therefore, only available at affiliated libraries all of which are closed due to the pandemic, I cannot use these records for verification at this time.

     It is my hope that someone reading this may be a descendant and be able to shed more light into what I've uncovered so far.2,3
     Terisha Turner was born in 1780, son of William Turner and Sarah Lyon, in Virginia.4,5

     Terisha married Susan Foster. I can find no mention of her in historical documents as of 9 Sep 2020.1

     Terisha Turner married Catharine (--?--). All I have in proof of this marriage is her enumeration with Terisha in 1850.5

     On 3 January 1846, T. Turner, Administrator, published a notice of final settlement in the estate of J. P. Turner, deceased stating at at the next February term of Pike County Court he would make a final settlement of this estate.

     I do not know if J. P. Turner could have been a son of this Terisha (#901) or the other Terisha (#925) in Pike County.6

He was found to be indebted to said estate in the sum of $402.68 and was ordered to distribute to each heirs or set of heirs the sum of $378.09 and also as follows:

He is not mentioned mentioned in Old Terisha's will of 7 May 1793 obviously because he died prior to it, but his name has been added to the list of Old Terisha's children. His widow, Frances (Lyon) was not old enough to remarry on December 28, 1772 without her parents' consent.

     Terisha Turner was born circa 1797, son of Terisha Turner and Joannah Rives, in North Carolina.3
     He was also known as Terry.1

     I have had no luck finding him in the 1830 census anywhere as of 23 Jan 2021.

     In May 1835, the land of Terisha Turner, dec'd, was alloted to his heirs in this term of Court in Warren County, North Carolina. Heirs named: Terisha Turner; Stephen R. Turner; Reaves Turner; Martha Williams; Susanna Stephens' heirs; Ellenora White; John Stephens by right of his wife Susanah (I thought her husband was Asa?); Thomas White by right of his wife.4

     In 1860, Neither Terisha nor John were living in Gibson County for the 1860 or 1870 census. Nor was Terisha living in in the state of Tennessee during these census enumerations.

     In 1870, I did find a T. H. Turner, 70, born in North Carolina, living in Lees Mill Township (Plymouth PO), Washington County, North Carolina, enumerated on 5 Jun 1870 who was a Farmer with real estate valued at $1,300 and personal property worth $200. Also living in his household were: Samson Turner, 25, Laborer, Harriet (probably Samson's wife), 20; Thomas Turner, 2; and Samuel Turner 6/12; all born in North Carolina. I don't think this is the right man, given the discovery in Gibson County, Tennessee.5

     Terisha Turner was born before 1761, son of Stephen Turner and Sarah Spencer, because he appears on the first Amherst County Personal Property Tax List after the Revolution as being 21 years of age and upwards.4

     In 1776, it is very likely that this is the Terisha Turner who witnessed the deed when Nicholas Cabell and wife Hannah (Carrington) conveyed 450 acres to his father (Stephen Turner). The names of both Terisha and Samuel appear, along with others.5

     Terisha Turner and Elizabeth Hoskins Thomas obtained a marriage bond on 16 August 1780 in Amherst County, Virginia, with James Nevil as security and Groves Harding, W. Loving, and Lucy Childress (the bride's grandmother) as witnesses. On the marriage bond, James Thomas is described as "of Cumberland Co."2

     On 16 August 1780, Stephen Turner, Terisha's father, witnessed the marriage bond of his son, Terisha, and Elizabeth Thomas in Amherst County, Virginia.2

     On 3 August 1781, "Terisha Turner, Jr. is shown to have provided a Rifle gun, shot bagg and powder horn, impressed and lost, no sum. His (name) follows directly after the claims of Old Terisha and of Stephen. This refers to Stephen's son, rather than Old Terisha's son who died in 1772."6

     In the Virginia Publick Claims source, this property is shown as lost Aug. 1781 and valued at £4.7

     On 18 September 1797, Terisha Turner witnessed the marriage bond of John Stevens and Sarah Turner at Amherst County, Virginia, with Teresha Turner as Surety and Jno. Loving and Wm. Barret as witnesses. Sally was Terisha's sister.8,9

     Terisha Turner was a witness to his father's consent to the marriage of John Stevens and Sarah Turner on 18 September 1797.10,11

     On 18 November 1798, Terisha Turner witnessed the marriage bond of John Tindall and Nancy Turner at Amherst County, Virginia, with John Stevens as security and S. Garland, Tirsha Turner, John Turner, and William Crawford as witnesses. On the bond, John is described "of Buckingham County." I suspect the John Stevens was either his brother-in-law (ID#2839) or his brother-in-law's father.12

     On 29 April 1799, quoting from Stephen's will: '7th - - I give to my son Terisha Turner the land whereon he now lives bounded as follows: all the land which I own on the North side of Ivy Creek, then crossing the creek the upper side of Cabello Line . . . all which Lands inclusive on both sides the Creek I give to him and his heirs forever (land which was deeded to him 4 May 1776 by Nicholas Cabell and Wife).1314,3,15

     On 7 December 1799, Terisha Turner was security for the marriage bond of John Gregory and Elizabeth Turner at Amherst County, Virginia.16,17

     On 7 March 1801, Terisha Turner was security for the marriage bond of Martha Turner and William Gregory at Amherst County, Virginia.18

     On 15 June 1801, an Administrator's Bond was posted by Jno., Terisha, and Saml, Turner qualified, June 15, 1801 on the estate of Stephen Turner in Amherst County, Virginia. Bondsmen: Jas. Murphy, Stephen Watts, Nelson Anderson, Ro. Rives.19,20

     On 15 February 1804, Terisha Turner and wife Elia. of Nelson County sold to Gilbert Bowman 250 acres for £2250 ' resurveyed by Joseph C. Higginbotham . . . south side of Rockfish and Ivy Creek . . . lines of Nichols Cabell and William Bowman.' Terisha's bequests in 1840 mention land purchased by him from Samuel Turner, Etc. . . as trustees, for John Spencer; also land conveyed to him by James Stevens (his brother-in-law) and Eliz., his wife; and land purchased from Robert Rives, etc.21

     On 17 February 1806, Terisha Turner witnessed the marriage bond of Cynthia Turner and Elisha Peters at Amherst County, Virginia, with Terish (sic) Turner as security and S. Garland as witness.22,23

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

     On 5 May 1830, Terisha Turner of Nelson County conveyed to Narcissa E Dillard, wife of James S. Dillard, of Bedford County, and their current and future children land and slaves consisting of one tract in Nelson County adjoining the land of Major Charles Yancey containing 50 acres, one fifth part of all the land in the county of Amherst of which James London died seized or prossessed and which said one fifth was converyed by Obediah Henderson and wife to the aforesaid James S. Dillard by deed with sundry horses, cattle, hogs, sheep, plantation utensils, household and kitchen furniture with all its increase and profits to Stephen Turner and William Dillard having Executors and Adminstration forever in trust for the uses and puposes for the support and maintenance of the said Narcissa during her natural life and for the support and maintenance and education of the children she now hath or may have for as long as said children shall be underage and unmarried or for any other cause in the opinion of the said trustees. When the children severally arrive at age or marry, the said trustees shall have power and authority at thier discretion, but shall not be compelled against their judgment, to advance to each Child so coming or age or marrying a reasonable proportion of the property aforesaid to be held by such child in his or her own right provided that such advance shll not exceed in value what each child would be then entitlted to if the whole property were then equally divided between the Mother and all the children.24

     Terisha Turner wrote a will codicil on 11 May 1840 in Nelson County, Virginia. In his codicil, he changed clause 5 to state that after the death of his son William should he leave a child or children, lawfully begotten, they would have a moiety of the real and personal estate given to his son William at the full discretion of of the estate trustees. The other moeity is to be sold at the death of his son Samuel on such terms as the trustees think fit. He revoked much of his ninth clause of his will giving Narcissa Dillard enough of the moiety as requried to take care and manage for his son John Turner.25,26

     Terisha Turner left a will dated on 11 May 1840 in Nelson County, Virginia. In his will, Terisha called himself 'far advanced in years.' It is a lengthy document, containing a lengthy codicil written the same day and showing much partiality. He bequeathed to his "beloved wife, eight of my slaves to be slected by herself, also all household and kitchen furniture and a quarter of all cattle, sheep, and hogs & (unreadable) During first year after my death." He gives her the privilege of remaining on the place where he now resides and the use of one-third of the land during her natural life, mentioning a tract of land owned in Amherst County . . and part of his personal estate. He failed to give her name. "To each of the four children (unnamed) of my descendant James L. Turner, the sum of $2,000 to be paid to them out of any monies I may have on hand at death or otherwise at discretion of executors but they may not be compelled to pay the sum or any part of the sum within twenty-four months of my death." " To son Samuel, son-in-law James D. (or could it be S.?) Dillon and my grandsons Terisha W. Dillard and James F. Dillard on interest for the use of (unreadable). Hereafter the Trust of land of purchase of Samuel Turner() Stephen Walls and Charles C. Pattison and Trustees of John Spencer & family and of the said John Spencer and his wife described in their conveyance of the same to me, of record in the County Court of Nelson and being in Nelson County of the Size River, also something of my personal estate and heir before disposal of and at the death of my wife (unreadable) of the slaves loaned to her during her natural life and of their increase. To son Samuel and to son William each a frugal support and such support may be suspended or wholly discontinued by the Trustees at any time at their own absolute irresponsible (sic) and uncontested discretion. And should son William return to this section of the country either in fee or for life or my two daughters Cynthia Pet___g and her child and Narcissa Dillard . . . . to son Stephen land purchased of David Higginbothom being on the Tye River." A trust was provided for his 'unfortunate' son John. Obviously the favorite was his younger daughter, Narcissa. The will goes on and on for pages and pages. Executors were: sons Lemuel and Stephen, son-in-law James S. Dillard, and grandson Terisha W. Dillard. Witnesses were Spotswood Garland and A. G. Loving.25,27

     Terisha Turner died in Nelson County, Virginia.
     Find A Grave does not have a burial listing for him as of 24 Jan 2019.

     His estate was probated on 22 March 1841 in Nelson County, Virginia.25

     On 22 March 1841, Lemuel Turner and Robert Rives as surety were bonded in the amount of $80,000 (worth about $1,719,142 in 2011 $) for the estate administration at Nelson County, Virginia.28

     Thomas Turner was born in 1828, son of Terisha Turner and Susan Foster.1
     He also is reported to have been born circa 1822 in Virginia.3

     Thomas married Ann Elizabeth Knight in 1853. I cannot find a marriage record for them as of 5 Sep 2020, but that is not uncommon if they married in Virginia.1

     On 7 December 1861, Thomas Turner, administrator of the estate of Terrisha Turner deceased, came to Court in Pike County, Missouri, to make a final settlement of this estate. He was found to be indebted to said estate in the sum of $402.68 and was ordered to distribute to each heirs or set of heirs the sum of $378.09 and also as follows:
Thomas Turner = $378.09
John C. Turner = 378.09
George F. Turner = $378.09
Robert C. Turner = $378.09
Jane Graves = $378.09
Julia Ann Wells - $378.09
Eliza Cunningham = $378.09
Susan P. Kerne = $378.09
George B. Turner guardian for the use of John Turner, William Turner and Edward Turner, minors jointly the sum of $378.09. I do not know who the father was of these minors was or how George B. Turner was related.2

     His estate was probated on 20 February 1869 in Pike County, Missouri, Ann E. Turner, administratrix of the Estate of Thomas Turner deceased, swore to the best of her knowledge that she (his widow), Charles Turner, Lena Lee Turner, Etta Bell Turner and Mary Knight Turner his children, all residents of Pike County are the only heirs of Thomas Turner deceased who did not leave a will.4

     On 24 February 1869, Ann E. Turner was bonded in order to administer the estate of Thomas Turner, deceased in Pike County, Missouri.4

     On 9 April 1869, Thomas Turner appointed George F. Turner his true and lawful attorney enabling him to transact Thomas' business generally to sue and collect on all my unfinished business and to do all other things that may be necessary to the winding up and settling my business.5

     Thomas Turner died in 1869. I do not understand probate being granted in Feb 1869 with Thomas appointing George to wind up his affairs on 9 Apr 1869???1,6

     I am unsure if this is the Thomas Andrew Turner who died in 1869 and was buried in Eolia Cemetery, Eolia, Pike County, Missouri, but it seems logical.6

     Thomas Boyd Turner was born on 28 December 1867, son of Thomas T. Turner and Martha Trotter, in Waverly, Humphreys County, Tennessee.1,34,5
     He also is reported to have been born on 28 December 1876 in Waverly, Humphreys County, Tennessee. This date, clearly in error given the fact he was enumerated in 1870, is from his obituary.5

     He was living in Hoyt, Sanboys, Indian Territory, at the time of his marriage.6

     Thomas, 33, married Nora Dickson, 23, on 21 March 1901 in Morrilton, Conway County, Arkansas.6

     Dr. Thomas Boyd Turner died on 19 February 1949 at age 81 in Oklahoma,5,3 and was buried in Stigler Cemetery, Stigler, Haskell County, Oklahoma.3

     On 21 February 1949, Thomas Boyd Turner's obituary reads:
     "Pioneer Doctor's Rites are Today
     Funeral services for Dr. Thomas Boyd Turner, one of Oklahoma's oldest pioneer physicians, will be held in the Methodist church in Stigler at 2 p.m. Monday. Dr. Turner was born in Waverly, Tenn, Dec 23, 1876. He graduated from Vanderbvilt university school of medicine at Nashville and came to Indian territory in 1898 to begin practice. On March 21, 1901, he married Wimoth Eleanor Dickson who survives him.

     Also surving are one daughter, Mrs. James P. Bell; one grandson, Thomas Bell, Oklahoma City: two sisters, Mrs. Mattie Wynn, Waverly, and Mrs. Beulah Little (could this be Ella who was married to a Biffle?), Birmingham, Ala."5

     Thomas Cletus Turner was born on 4 August 1881, son of Thomas Henry Turner and Lucy Frances Alexander, in Kentucky.2,4,3
     He was also known as Cletus.5

     Thomas and Lela B. Stennett obtained a marriage bond on 24 December 1906 in Ballard County, Kentucky.6

     Thomas Cletus Turner, 25, married Lela B. Stennett, 27, on 25 December 1906 in La Center, Ballard County, Kentucky.6

     Thomas registered for the draft on 12 September 1918 at Ballard County, Kentucky. He was 37 years of age, married and a farmer. He is described as being tall, with a slender build, black 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.4

     After Lela's death in 1923, he married Flora N (--?--), probably c1927.7

     Thomas Cletus Turner died on 6 January 1951 at age 691 and was buried in Wickliffe Cemetery, Wickliffe, Ballard County, Kentucky.1

     Thomas Henry Turner was born on 1 May 1848, son of Henry H. Turner and Eleanor N. Mabry, in Kentucky.3,4

     Thomas married Mary E. Pace. I cannot find a marriage record in which I have confidence for them on either Ancestry of FamilySearch.

     I have found a marriage license for a Thomas H. Turner and Mary E. Manly dated 16 Jan 1861 in Amherst County, Virginia. However, I found burial information which makes it clear the Thomas H. Turner who married Mary E. Manley was the son of Payton Turner.

     Bottom line: I cannot find a marriage record for them as of 5 Jul 2021.5,6,7,8

     Thomas married Lucy Frances Alexander circa 1877. I cannot find a marriage record for them in either Kentucky or Tennessee as of 5 Jul 2021, but in 1900 they stated they had been married for twenty-three years.9,10

     Thomas Sumpter Turner was born in 1833, son of Sumpter Turner and Rachel Dalton, in New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana.2
     He also is reported to have been born circa 1830 in Louisiana.3
     He was also known as Thomas H.2

     Thomas married Laura Virginia Whitehead. I absolutely cannot find a marriage record for them as of 16 Nov 2020 despite now knowing her surname.2

     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.4

     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.5

     Thomas Sumpter Turner died on 17 November 1882 in Chesterfield County, Virginia.

     Thomas Sumpter Turner was born on 23 January 1873, son of Thomas Sumpter Turner and Laura Virginia Whitehead, in Virginia.4,2

     Thomas, 31, married Lomie A. Talton, 17, on 16 March 1904 in Selma, Johnston County, North Carolina, with Rosa L. Roberts, W. L. Talton and E. D. Sanders as witnesses.2,5,6

     Thomas registered for the draft on 12 September 1918 at Johnston County, North Carolina. He is described as 45 years of age and of short height, medium build with blue eyes and dark hair. He was a Railroad Conductor for the Southen RailRoad.

     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

     He was a railroad conductor prior to his death.2

     Thomas Sumpter Turner died on 1 December 1919 at age 46 in Portsmouth, Norfolk County, Virginia,2 and was buried on 4 December 1919 in Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, (Independent City), Virginia.7

     Thomas William Turner was born on 8 February 1873, son of Thomas Marcellus Turner and Nancy Frances Bryan, in Linwood, Wilson County, Tennessee.1

     Thomas, 19, married Alma Dotson on 8 January 1893 in Wilson County, Tennessee.4

     Thomas registered for the draft on 12 September 1918 at DeSoto County, Florida. He was 45 years of age and a Machinist living in Punta Gorda. He is described as tall with a medium build, blue eyes and light brown.

     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.1

     Thomas William Turner died in 1928 in Lakeland, Polk County, Florida,5 and was buried in Wildwood Cemetery, Bartow, Polk County, Florida.5
