     Averilla and John W. Turner obtained a marriage bond on 15 August 1849 in Sumner County, Tennessee, with John T. Carter, who may be a relative or even the bride's father, as bondsman. She may have been a widow when she married. Repeatedly, in documents I find her maiden surname given as Collier. I cannot find a marriage record for her under the maiden surname of Carter to a Collier.7,8

     Averilla Carter Turner died on 22 July 1861 at age 30 in Sumner County,2,9 and was buried in Turner 1-55 Cemetery, Sumner County, Tennessee.

     The cemetery is called the Turner Cemetery and is located 2 and 3/10 miles east of Highway 31W on Clearview Road. The cemetery is about 100 feet south of the road on the former Mitchell Moore property. Buried in the same cemetery are Richard Moore 12 Nov 1890 - Jul 7 1914 and Johnetter Mitchel, daughter of Major W. & Catharine Mitchel 23 Jan 1849 - 27 Jun 1870.2,10,11

     On 10 July 1913, John W. Turner's obituary reads: Oldest Resident of Sumner County - John W. Turner, Aged 89, Dies at His Home on Bledsoe Creek.
     Bethpage - John W. Turner, the oldest man in Sumner County, died Wednesday night at his home near this place at 10:45 o'clock. He was a son of the late Nelson Turner, who came to Sumner County from Virginia in the early part of the nineteenth century and settled on Bledsoe Creek, where he reared a large family. John W. Turner, his second son, was born on Bledsoe Creek on September 1, 1824, and lived his entire life within one mile from the place where he died. He was twice married. His first wife was Miss Collier, who died at the beginning of the civil war. His second wife was Miss Sallie Wyne, a daughter of the Rev. Geo. W. Wyne, a member of the Tennessee Methodist Conference for fifty years. His second wife died in 1868.

     He is survived by Miss Ella Turner, W. N. Turner, Wheeler Turner and Geo. R. Turner, all of this county, and John D. Turner and Mrs. Florence Ray of Pawnee, Okla. Besides his children he is survived by his brother, Capt. J. Nel. Turner, of Gallatin, who is 75 years of age.

     He had been a member of the Christian Church for many years before his death. He left a handsome estate. To his children he was kind and affectionate and was a good citizen and a Christian. His burial took place today at Bethpage Cemetery, with funeral services conducted at the grave by Rev. J. K Thompson of Gallatin."12

     Waldo J. Compton married Minnie Stamper on 9 August 1911 in Marengo County, Alabama.1

     I suspect this is the James W. (J. W.) Compton who died 25 Feb 1926 in Selma, Dallas County, Alabama, and was buried in new Live Oak Cemetery, in Selma. The problem with this identification is that no wife is listed in his obituary posted on the memorial page. The death and burial index shows him as widowed with his spouse's name as Mattie. So this cannot be him.

     A marriage record also shows that he married Sue Willie Davis on 24 Feb 1901 in Marengo County, Alabama. She could've been his first wife and the mother of his children. In 1910 he is listed with Sue and five children, ranging in ages from 8 to 2.2,3,4

     Martha Elizabeth Cook was born circa 1793, daughter of John Cook, in Virginia.2

     Martha Elizabeth Cook and Williamson Rainey Jr obtained a marriage bond on 22 December 1810 at Mecklenburg County, Virginia,1 with Charles D. Cleaton as bondsman1 and with consent to the marriage by John Cook, Sr. father of the bride.1

     Martha Elizabeth married Williamson Rainey Jr, son of Williamson M. Rainey and Edith Morgan, on 22 December 1810 at Mecklenburg County, Virginia.1

     In February 1857, according to Vernon Drewa, a bill was introduced in Chancery Court as follows:

     "Martha Rainey, Henry Thomas & wife, Zackariah Curtis & wife, Thomas Thompson & wife, Herbert B. Rainey, Edward Cleaton & wife and Martha Rainey.
vs.
John J. Rainey, Henry Rainey, Charles G. Turner & Sailie his wife, Charles W. Rainey, Adelia A. Rainey, and Rosa, Rufus and Robert Rainey, children of Thomas J. Rainey.

     To the worshipful the County court of Mecklenburg in Chancery Sitting.
Your complainants Martha Rainey, Henry Thomas & Emily his wife formerly Rainey, Zachariah Curtis & Harriett his wife formerly Rainey, Thomas Thompson & Mary his wife formerly Rainey, Herbert B. Rainey, Edward Cleaton & Margaret his wife formerly Rainey, and Martha Rainey respectfully represent unto your worship that Williamson Rainey was in his lifetime seized and possessed of a considerable real estate, slaves & other personal property, and being so thereof seized and possessed, some time recently, to wit, in the early part of the year 1857 departed this life inteste, leaving your complainants and John J. Rainey, Henry Rainey, Charles G. Turner & Sailie his wife formerly Rainey, Charles W. Rainey, Adelia A. Rainey, and Rosa Rainey, Rufus Rainey & Robert Rainey children of Thomas J. Rainey his heirs at law that Charles G. Turner & John J. Rainey qualified in this court upon the Estate of the said Williamson Rainey and executed a proper bond conditioned as the law directs for the faithful discharge of their duties as administrators.
Your complainants further state that Martha Rainey one of your Complainants is the widow of the said Williamson Rainey and that she is desirous that her dower in the lands 7 slaves of her late husband should be assigned her without dela- that your complainants are informed and believe that the debts of the said Williamson Rainey are but few and of small amounts, and that they are fully satisfied, that it will require no part of the real estate or slaves to pay any part of the debts of the said Williamson Rainey, but that he has left more than enough of other property to satisfy them -Your complainants would further state that the said Williamson Rainey in his lifetime made advancements to several of his children - that he advanced to his daughter Sallie Rainey who intermarried with Charles G. Turner money and other property to the value of about $700 that he advanced to his son John J. Rainey money & other property to the value of about $800 that he advanced to his son Thomas J. Rainey the father of Rosa, Rufus, and Robert Rainey money & other property to the value of about $600 that he advanced to his daughter Harriett Rainey who intermarried with Zackaraiah Curtis money and other property to the value of about $700 that he advanced to his daughter Margaret Rainey who intermarried with Edward Cleaton money & other property to the value of about $700. that he advanced to his daughter Emily Rainey who intermarried with Henry Thomas money & other property to the value of about $700 - that he advanced to his daughter Mary Rainey who intermarried with Thomas Thompson money & other property to the value of about $700 - and that he advanced to his son Herbert B. Rainey money & other property to the value of about $800.     which advancements your complainants ask shall be accounted for by the parties respectively before they may be permitted to receive a distributive share of the Estate of which said Williamson Rainey died seized and possessed - Your complainants further state that after one third of the lands & slaves have been assigned to the Complainant Martha Rainey in the estate of her late husband Williamson Rainey as her dower that they do not believe the residue will be susceptible of partition in kind among the parties thereto entitled - that the interest of each in the real estate will be worth considerably less than three hundred dollars, and that the slaves being so few in numbers and so unequal in value that they cannot be well divided, your complainants therefore desire that the proceeds distributed among the parties in proportion to their respective interest therein - In consideration whereof, and as your complainants are without remedy except in a court of Equity where matters of this kind are along & properly cognizable your compts. pray that John J. Rainey & Charles G. Turner, Charles W. Rainey, Adelia A. Rainey, Rosa Rainey, Rufus Rainey & Robert Rainey the last six of whom are infants be made parties defendants to this bill and required to answer the allegations herein contained - that a guardian ad litem be assigned the infant defendants that one third in value of the real estate & slaves of which the said Williamson Rainey died seized and possessed be assigned to Martha Rainey as her dower and that the residue of each both the lands & slaves be sold and the proceeds there of be distributed among the parties thereto entitled in proportion to their respective Interests - And that your worships will grant unto your Compts. such other & general relief in the premises as in justice & Equity they may be entitled to & they will ever pray, etc."

     I do not know the outcome of this suit. Unfortunately, FamilySearch does not appear to have Chancery Court Records, vol. 2 filmed. Volume 1 ends in 1844 and volume 3 begins in 1860.3

     In April 1857, in this term of Court, an accounting of property sales from Williamson Rainey's estate was presented. Charles G. Turner and Jno. J. Rainey were Commissioners and Administrators of Williamson Rainey decd. Land was devised to Martha Rainey (his widow), Jno. J. Rainey, J. H. Rainey and Charles G. Turner. Other names are mentioned as to receiving property during the sale.4

     Martha Elizabeth Rainey died before 21 December 1857 in Mecklenburg County, Virginia.
     Find A Grave does not have a burial listing for her as of 28 Jan 2019.5

     Her estate was administered on 21 December 1857 at Mecklenburg County, Virginia, by Charles G. Turner and John I. Rainey who were the appointed administrators of the estate of Martha Rainey. Their bond was set at $7,000 (worth $170,001.19 in 2012 dollars). Their bond was secured by Joseph Bennett and Joseph H. Rainey.6
