     Calvin Smith Turner was born on 25 December 1825, son of William Suddarth Turner and Elizabeth Pearl Smith, in Tennessee.4

     Between 1842 and 1846, Calvin was one of the men in the first group of Texas Rangers, serving under Jack Hays. "He took part of the Battle of Salado in 1842. He served through the Mexican War of 1846 in the famous regiment of Rangers commanded by Col. Jack Hays, his old captain. He took part in the Battles of Monterey and Buena Vista."5

     After returning from Mexico he received a commission from Gov. P. H. Bell as second lieutenant in the ranger company commanded by Capt. Henry E. McCulloch. He engaged in stock-raising after coming to Pleasanton, and also opened a hotel. He served under Capt. John Tom part of the time as minuteman to repel Indian incursions, and participated in the Indian battle on San Miguel Creek. During one raid near town his Mexican herder was killed by Indians. During the Civil War he was a lieutenant in Captain Maverick's company, Wood's regiment."6

     On 25 October 1847, Calvin S. first enlisted in the Texas Mounted Volunteers (Rangers) on October 25, 1847, as a Private for 12 months of service. He was 21 years old and had blue eyes, light hair and a light complexion. He stood 5'11" tall. He gave his birthplace as Seguin. His enlistment officer was Captain Henry E. McCulloch.7

     On 25 October 1848, he again enlisted, this time as a 2nd Lieutenant. He served on this enlistment for 1 month and 13 days of service.7

     On 5 November 1850, he again enlisted on November 5, 1850 for 6 months of service.7 "I'd love to tell a fun story on my Texas Ranger ancestor:"

     "Don't know if you have ever been to Texas or not but just above San Antonio and to the east it gets into the Edwards Plateau - ground makes an abrupt jump right behind my parents home (outside New Braunfels) about a mile away behind their house - sudden tall cliffs. I guess a massive earth quake lifted the ground up after the water receded long ago when the ocean came further inland to our continent. And part of the ground stayed level. At the base of this break water came up from artesian underground aquifers. In my hometown of New Braunfels a small river is spring fed and is crystal clear coming from the base of this cliff. Anyway on the top part of the cliff - Edwards Plateau - the hills begin and the country gets rough the further north you go."

     "The Indians loved to swoop down from the desert areas in west Texas and hit around Austin and down towards San Antonio plundering and pillaging where ever they found a lonesome cabin. Then they would go into the hill country escaping into the brush and rough terrain making camps and later heading back into the far desert and mountains in west Texas."

     "After one such Indian raid a large group of Texas Rangers took off a few days afterwards to follow their trail. My ancestor Calvin Turner was among the men. Each had to have proved themselves worthy to the leader Jack Hays to even get to be a part. Jack lived in the same town (Sequin) with Calvin and their families the Turners and Hays had migrated together for generations, first from Virginia to Tennessee and then from Tennessee to Texas. The men in this outfit were rough and tough and had gone through some hard times living in the early days of Texas. I read where in one year in san Antonio 130 white men were counted arriving that year. At the end of the year nearly 100 of them had died -- most to Indian attacks. This was the environment a few years before Calvin and his family arrived just after the Battle of San Jacinto. Calvin was 16 years old and he and his older brothers eagerly joined up with the Ranger group that Jack Hays organized to protect the settlers after the war with Mexico was over. (I don't imagine plowing held a candle to Indian fighting.)"

     "At the time of this raid Calvin and the Rangers had been on tours of duty together off and on for a number of years."

     "As the group followed the Indian trail they got within a half days ride of them. The commander Jack Hays ordered his men to get in single file and stay in line. They were going through canyons and gullies and rough country and he wanted them to proceed as fast and as safely as possible. His men were pretty unruly tough guys so he gave the order that if anyone got out of line they had to go to the rear - to avoid fighting over their place in line - as no one wanted to eat dust in the rear."

     "Later, one of the men near Calvin had to leave the line for some reason. He came back and tried to get his horse back in where he had been before. Another man he was trying to cut in front of sternly reminded him what the Captain had said. He had to go to the rear! This was not pleasing to this fellow to say the least and with some oaths he worked his horse harder at getting back in line. The other fellow worked hard to prevent it and even jabbed the guys horse with the butt of his gun. This upset the horse who threw his rider off onto the hard rocky ground. Calvin and the others nearby heard the oaths and swearing and anger of this thrown rider and knew there would be a fight later between the two. They all considered on it while they sat on their horses and followed the trail. When they came to a place to make camp Calvin got a few of his friends aside and told them he had a plan involving the two at-odds Rangers."

     "He had noticed some berries they'd passed that stain bright red like blood. 'Hey how about a fake duel between the two,' he suggested. They made their plans and the angered Ranger was easy putty in their hands. He was bound and determined to kill the guy who had jabbed his horse making him fall, so Calvin and his friends were going to oblige him. They got to talking about duels and soon it was arranged that early in the morning they'd settle it once and for all the proper way with a duel. Of course, Captain Jack Hays knew nothing of this."

     "The men who posed as seconds were carefully selected and the other Ranger sneakily told of the fake duel and his part in it. When the seconds took the guns to check them they hid in the bushes for a moment and emptied out the real bullets and replaced them with some other objects. One gun, that of the angry Ranger had the berries in it that stained red. The other Ranger had some pemican (not sure I'm spelling it right - a food substance that was brown and sticky) put in his gun."

     "It was so early in the morning the men didn't let the guys even get dressed, but they faced each other off in their white long johns. (The better to show the red berry stain I guess :) After the required twenty paces they turned and fired. The Ranger hit with the red berries faked that he'd been killed and sure enough looked like he took a good hit in the chest with the red all over. Excitedly and horrified the seconds announced, 'You Killed HIM!' Then they noticed the Ranger standing there looking a bit horrified himself and they said 'You've been hit too! Look his guts are coming out!' Upon hearing this the Ranger looked down and saw some sticky brown goo oozing on his clothes above his belt. He promptly fainted away! To the hoots and hollers of the men who had a great time, let me tell you with that poor old guy. When he came to he was pretty angry at those Rangers but so relieved he hadn't killed the other Ranger that he jumped up and went and shook the man's hand and the two duelists became best friends for the rest of their lives!"8

     Calvin Smith Turner, 25, married Amanda A. Tucker, 15, daughter of Ezekiel Tucker and Ashbel (--?--), on 16 November 1851 in Hays County, Texas.9

     Calvin Smith Turner died on 10 November 1871 at age 45 in Pleasanton, Atascosa County, Texas,10 and was buried in San Ysidro Cemetery, Pleasanton, Atascosa County, Texas.10

     Gilbert Jackson Turner was born on 6 December 1852, son of Calvin Smith Turner and Amanda A. Tucker, in Guadalupe County, Texas.3

     He never married, and lived in the original log cabin that the Turner family first built in Pleasanton. He had a horse named Gubber (Peanut) and rode the Chisholm Trail. He was very tall.3

     Gilbert Jackson Turner died in 1922 in Texas. I cannot find a death record on FamilySearch. The only Gilbert Turner FamilySearch noted died in Brazos County and appears to have been married.

     Find A Grave does not have a burial record for him under the first name Gilbert or Jackson as of 3 Feb 2019.4
