     Helena C. Turner was born circa 1815, daughter of James L. Turner and Sarah Campbell, in Virginia.2

     Helena and Francis Thomas Belt obtained a marriage bond on 13 August 1827 in Botetourt County, Virginia, with Francis T. Belt and Lucius D Turner as bondsmen. Helena is descrbed as "ward" of Lucius D Turner. The bond was signed by both Francis T. Belt and Lucius D. Turner.

     Their names are not listed on the Marriage Register for this county.3,4

     In 1831, during the fall, Helena with her husband and Lucius moved with their mother, Sarah, to St. Clair County, Illinois, settling on a farm north of Belleville, having been attracted here by encouraging letters from the West and Mitchell families who had left Virginia a few years previous in 1817.5

     On 27 June 1844, Pitticus Turner left "everything in his will to his tiny daughter Ann Eliza with the provision that, if she did not live to maturity, it should go to his sister, Helena C. Belt and the heirs she may have had by the late Dr. Francis T. Belt." in Botetourt County, Virginia.6

     On 28 September 1851, Sarah Turner's application for bounty land for her husband's service in the War of 1812 was witnessed by L. D. Turner and H. C. Belt on September 29, 1851 and again on May 10, 1855 by L. D. Turner and Helen C. Hypes, with an affidavit by James Mitchell.7

     Helena C. Belt married Joseph Hypes on 29 April 1852 in Lebanon, St. Clair County, Illinois.8

     Helena C. Hypes died on 13 April 1873 in Lebanon, St. Clair County, Illinois.
     I could not find a burial listing for her on Find A Grave as of 21 Aug 2019.

     On 17 May 1963, Ann Eliza Turner McDowell's daughter, Ruth McDowell gave the following sworn statement to Mildred K. Fortune, Notary Public:
     "That she was born at Fincastle, Virginia on the 17 day of Dec. 1884, the youngest child of James McDowell and Ann Eliza Turner.
     That her mother, Ann Eliza Turner, was born at Fincastle, Virginia the 27th day of Sept., 1840, the only child of Dr. Pitticus Turner and his wife Sarah Ann Rebekah Rudisill (d. March 26, 1842).
     That her mother, Ann Eliza Turner, was orphaned at the age of four and was reared by a maternal (Rudisill) aunt.
     That the family Bible and all papers concerning Dr. Pitticus Turner were destroyed in a town wild fire in her mother's early married life.
     That her mother often spoke of having visited two bachelor great-uncles, Lemuel and Stephen (Turner), and a beloved 'Aunt Dillard.'
     That her mother had an Aunt Helena (Turner) who 'west West' to live and an 'Uncle Van Tromp.'
     That the affiant, whose next older brother was Campbell McDowell, has always been told that she is descended from the Clan Campbell through Dr. Pitticus Turner's mother.
     That the affiant had distant cousins names Peters - one, Cynthia Mundy Massie, may still be living, also a 'cousin', Elizabeth Dillard' who had a daughter Cynthia and sons, Dr. J. Dillard of Lynchburg and James Dillard. in Bluefield, Mercer County, West Virginia.9

     Family tradition says she married a man with the surname Carroll who was a lawyer in St. Louis.

     I have had no success in finding a marriage record for her on Ancestry.com nor can I find her in the census (1880-1910) under a married surname of Carroll as of 31 Oct 2020.1

     John Stevens was born between 1761 and 1771. He was at least 21 years of age in 1797 when he obtained a marriage bond so probably born c1776 or thereabouts.3,4

     John and Sarah Turner obtained a marriage bond on 18 September 1797 in Amherst County, Virginia, with Teresha Turner as Surety and Jno. Loving and Wm. Barret as witnesses. Sally was Terisha's sister.2,4

     John Loving, who made an oath that John Stevens was 21, gave consent to the marriage on 18 September 1797.5,6

     Stephen Turner, father of the bride, gave consent to the marriage on 18 September 1797. Sally's brother, Terisha, was a witness to this consent.5,7

     On 23 February 1825, in her will, Sarah Stevens states that she has resided with her son-in-law, John Stevens, of Nelson County. She bequeaths "to my grandson John Stevens Jr., son of my daughter Sally Stevens wife of John Steven (sic) one Negro woman Patty which I purchased with my own money since the death of my husband which I hold independent of my dower Negroes. Also to my grandson all money which may be owned me at death or in hand." She leaves all profits to her daughter, Sally. She appointed her grandson as executor. She signed her will: Sarah (her mark) Turner. Witnesses were Thomas Jopling and Jefferson L. Wells. in Nelson County, Virginia.2

     John Stevens died before 1850 because he was not enumerated in the census.
