     Joseph D. Turner was born on 23 January 1822, son of Nelson Bailey Turner and Elizabeth Buntin, in Tennessee.3,4,5

     Joseph D. Turner also is reported to have been born on 3 January 1822.6 He was also known as Joe Desha Turner7 and, as John D. Turner.8

     In 1848, in the Chancery Court hearing between Jo D.'s father, Nelson Bailey Turner, and Enoch Simpson over the guardianship of Nelson's deceased brother's son, John, William Johnson testified to an encounter between himself, Jo. D. Turner and Mr. Simpson:"Jo D. Turner and myself were at the camp meeting at the Dry Fork. Mrs. Simpson invited us to go home with her to dinner. We went sometime after dinner. Jo D. were walking the floor and had or had John in his arms. Mrs. Simpson were sitting in the room. Jo D. had on a new pair pants with buttons on from the ankles near the knees. Mrs. Simpson took hold of one of the buttons and said she would cut one off or pull it off. Jo D. took hold of her "yeore" [no idea what this means] and shuck it and turned off. Mr. Simpson came out of the piaser [pissser?] & took Jo D. by the arm & pointed to the door. Jo D. asked him what he had done. Mr. Simpson said he did not want to have any words about it but if he did not get out, he would put him out. Mrs. Simpson spoke and said Mr. Saimpson we always fooled & played in Mr. Turners life time & meant no harm. Mr. Simpson said, I don't know what you come for, for you was not wanted when you were fetched. Jo D. then got his horse and left. I then left the house until Mr. Bradley & Mr. McGlothlin had left. I then returned to the house & found Mr. Simpson & his wife quarreling about the way Mr. Simpson had treated her & Jo D. I cannot remember all that was said but what I do remember, I remember that Mrs. Simpson told Mr. Simpson that if he didn't mind how he talked & went on that she would not stay with him but would go back to the old place. Mr. Simpson told her that if she wanted to go she could go. Mrs. Simpson threw up some woman on the north side of the ridge to Mr. Simpson, he then threw up Mark Moore & Jo D. Turner to her. she then told him that she loved Mark Moores little finger better than she did his whole body, in run of the conversation Sanford Simpson, the son of Enoch Simpson, gave Martha Simpson the boy." He then stated his relationship: my mother and N. B. Turner were brother and sister; my father and Mrs. Simpson's father were brothers. "I am well acquainted with the parties the friendship were very good between the two Turner families and the children of N. B. Turner. Aunt Martha were all ways playful in the life time of James."

     Martha A Flowers, about 30, testified that her mother and Martha's father were brother and sister and that she lived near them for about fifteen months. She further reported that Mrs. Simpson frequently said that Mr. Simpson was unwilling for John to go to N. B. Turner's house which was why she was unwilling. Ms. Flowers further stated that she had heard Mr. Simpson use vulgar language and that he mortified his wife on occasion. She told the same story about Jo D. Turner, adding "Mrs. Simpson further stated that she were vary sorry that the occurrence happen that she meant no harm, and did not believe that Jo D. Turner meant any either. Mrs. Simpson further stated that she went in the woods and thought she would have stayed there until she died. She stated that the education of the child would be better served with N. B. Turner. In response to questioning by Enoch Simpson, she testified that she had heard Mrs. Simpson say that she was unwiling to give up the raising of her son to any person. As to N. B. Turner, she was afraid he would learn bad words and might be killed by riding a horse."9

     Joseph D. Turner, 39, married Molly E. Martin, 28 on 21 September 1861 in Sumner County, Tennessee.10

     Joseph D. Turner, 48, married Agnes Walsh, 25 on 10 May 1870 in Sumner County, Tennessee.11,12

     On 30 May 1874, he is named Jo. D. Turner in his father, Nelson B.'s, will and made executor, as well as being left 300 acres on Rock Creek and another 120 acres on Brushy Fork of Bledsoe Creek.2

     On 1 August 1874, a codicil to his father's will specifies that if John D. "lives longer than his present wife then the devise to him by me of real estate is absolute and unconditional but if his said wife should survive him then I give and devise the lands heretofore devised to him for life and rermainder to his children or legal representatives."13

     On 28 April 1883, he was appointed administrator for the estate of Jno F. Turner at Sumner County, Tennessee.14

     Joseph D. Turner left a will dated on 22 May 1894 in Sumner County, Tennessee.

     I, J. D. Turner do make and publish this as my last Will & Testament to wit:

     First - I want all of my personal property consisting of Bonds, Money on hand that may be due me divided into six (6) equal shares, one share to each of my five children, and one share to my wife Aggie.

     All the hay and corn on hand will be needed to feed the stock and raise the crop & it is left to my family for that purpose. The growing crop of wheat, corn, hay &c is left for the use & benefit of my whole family so is all of my farming utensils, waggons, plows, mowers &c. The piece of wheat in the Bryson field West of the rail road is my son Joe's and is not included in the above as mine. I do appoint & make J. Net. Turner and R. C. Harris my executors to carry out this my last will. All of my burial & other expenses that may accure(sic) or be made I want my executors to pay out of the first moneys coming into their hands and this is to be done out of the whole before any division is made as above stated among my family. As my family as above stated will derive and have equal benefits from my growing crops, I want them [pg. 78] to bear equally the expenses of raising and paying the expenses of raising of same, and I want my executors to pay the expenses of same out of the whole amount of moneys in their hands before any division, this is only for the present crop of 1894.

     John W. Turner was born on 1 September 1824, son of Nelson Bailey Turner and Elizabeth Buntin, in Tennessee.3,4,5

     John W. Turner and Averilla Collier obtained a marriage bond on 15 August 1849 in Sumner County, Tennessee, with John T. Carter, presumably the bride's father, as bondsman. She was evidently a widow when she married.6 John W. Turner married Averilla Collier after 15 August 1849 at Sumner County, Tennessee.7

     Averilla died in Jul 1861, but I'm unable to find another marriage for him despite a Louellen Turner being enumerated with him in 1870.

     On 30 May 1874, he is named in his father's will of this date in which he is left 357 acres in Sumner County, Tennessee.2

     John W. Turner left a will dated on 16 July 1906 in Sumner County, Tennessee. In John W. Turner's will he names his six children: Ella, ? (possibly Florence), William, J. Wheeler; Geo. R; and J. D. Turner. All were named as executors.8

     John W. Turner died on 9 July 1913 at age 884 and was buried in Bethpage Cemetery, Bethpage, Sumner County, Tennessee.9

     His estate was probated on 11 August 1913 in Sumner County, Tennessee.8

     John was born circa 1826 because in the Chancery Court hearing held on 6 and 7 Apr 1849, he is said to be 23 years of age. I suspect his father may have been the William M. Carter, age about 50 years, who also testified.2,3

     On 6 April 1849, he testified in the matter of the guardianship and schooling of John A. Turner, son of James H. Turner that he went with Nelson Bailey Turner to the north side of the ridge to Sanford Simpson to demand "John the ward & told Sanford that he thought as he were his guardian he had the right of selecting the place for the child to go to school at. Sanford told him that the boy should not go without the consent of his mother. Turner told Sanford he would take the boy to his mother he would go and see her about him. Sanford promised to send him back. Subsequently, Sanford stated the boy were brought there [to him] for his accommodation to go to school with his son. He further testified that the school house in is Trouts district, was very sorry and even the neighborhood is uniformed, quite dissipated, and that Sanford's children had very limited education. He stated the character of the schools is much better in N. B. Turner's neighborhood.2

     John T. Carter married Phoebe Ann Turner, daughter of Nelson Bailey Turner and Elizabeth Buntin, after 5 September 1849 in Sumner County, Tennessee.4

     On 30 May 1874, his father-in-law directed in his will: " I also will and direct that if my son Jo. D. Turner shall be bound to pay and security matters that he is not bound on for J. T. Carter or said Carter shall fail to pay said Jo D. a note he now holds against him then the amount heretofore willed Mrs. Carter is hereby charged with said ____ liability and my executor is directed to discharge such security matters and not out of what I have willed her."5
