     Carmen (--?--) was born circa 1895 in Mexico. Her parents are reported to have both been born in Spain.1

     Circa 1917, Grady apparently met Carmen at Camp Funston, Kansas, sometime between 1917 and 1918. She had a son by the name of Billy, but it's unknown if he was from a previous marriage.

     The information on Carmen comes from a Mr. Joe Philpott (254-442-3629) who works for the Cisco Cemetery Association. He was supposed to verify this information and get back to Vernon Drewa which, apparently, he had not prior to Mr. Drewa's death.

     Carmen (--?--) married Grady T. Turner, son of Rev. Stephen Williamson Turner and Dora Anna Shuford, circa 1918. This marriage date could be incorrect if Billy B., born c1915, was their son. I cannot find a marriage anywhere in the United States or Mexico. I've searched FamilySearch as well as Ancestry.Com. I have worked on this repeatedly over the years with no success as of 26 Feb 2021.

     Carmen Turner died circa 1920 in New York City, New York County, New York. I've had no luck finding a death record for her so far anywhere as of 6 Jun 2016. She was buried at Cisco, Eastland County, Texas. I've had no luck confirming her burial in Eastland County or in New York or in the United States for that matter on Find A Grave (as of 29 Nov 2018), ancestry or familysearch sites.
