     Edmund Turner was born on 17 November 1793, son of William Turner and Frances Dodson, in North Carolina.1,2 He was also known as Edward.1 He was also known as Edmond.

     Edmund Turner married Jenney Dodson. I cannot find a marriage record for them as of 20 Dec 2016.3

     In 1825, he bought lot #3 on the waters of Drake Creek at Sumner County, Tennessee.4

     In 1825, Edmond and wife Jincy H. Turner sold to James Green 23 acres on the waters of Drakes Creek for $169, their part of William Dodson land at Sumner County, Tennessee.5

     In 1825, he bought 137 acres from Daniel Donelson for $1,100. Witnesses: Harry Smith, A. S. Bugg at Sumner County, Tennessee.6

     On 22 September 1831, Daniel S. Donelson conveyed to Edmund Turner 137.5 acres for $1,100. Witnesses: Harry Smith and A. D. Bugg. Registered 11 Apr 1832 at Sumner County, Tennessee.7

     On 24 August 1838, Edmund was one of the Commissioners who made the final decree dividing the land of William Smith among his heirs. Final decree in Feb Circuit Court Tem 1843 at Sumner County, Tennessee.8

     On 6 July 1840, Ebenezer Arnold, by Power of Attorney dated 25 Apr 1840 for James P. Taylor sold a negro slave named Austin to Edmund Turner for $?. Witnesss:W. S. Watson, W. H. & Jno. M. Wilkinson. Registered 24 Oct 1840 at Sumner County, Tennessee.9

     On 10 January 1842, he witnessed a deed in which Elizabeth Sims who had a dower estate on 157 acres in District #7 conveyed the land to Len S. Sims for $300 at Sumner County, Tennessee.10

     On 22 April 1842, James Duke conveyed to Edmond Turner 147 acres in District #8 for $5. Witnesses: Thomas Flack and James B. Taylor. Registered 30 Apr 1842 at Sumner County, Tennessee.11

     On 18 February 1843, Daniel Donelson coveyed to Edmund Turner 98 acres for $1,470. Witnesses: John F. Cage and William Cantrell. Registered 18 Feb 1843 at Sumner County, Tennessee.12

     On 16 February 1845, Edmund Turner conveyed to Thornton Starks 69.25 acres o the waters of Turners Spring Branch for $552, it being a tract originally owned b Ezekiel Lindsay. Registered 18 Feb 1845 at Sumner County, Tennessee.13

     In June 1847, Edmund was one of the Commissioners executing the final decree in a lawsuit between William Alford & Afred Pierce vs. B. M. Runyon & A. W. Vanleer at Sumner County, Tennessee.14

     Edmund Turner married Eliza Byram in 1851. I cannot find a marriage record in Virginia or Tennessee for them on FamilySearch or Ancestry.com, but I can find a marriage record in Tennessee for an Edward Turner on 19 Jan 1823 with NO bride's name at all. None of the marriages in this Perry County, Kentucky book have the names of the brides. And, the state seems unlikely.15,3

     Edmund Turner died in 1871 in Sumner County, Tennessee. I cannot find any death/burial information for him as of 19 Dec 2016, but his daughter, Emily's, memorial page on Find A Grave says he died in 1871.3
