Confusion of Two Daughters

     I think I have two of Jefferson Daniel's daughters confused because of the different dates of birth listed in multiple census enumerations as well as different names written by census takers.

     I haven't merged them yet, but I think the Hannah Turner (ID#18797) listed in 1850 is the same person as Anna Jefferson Turner (ID#11717). This would explain the fact that Anna Jefferson was not listed on the census enumerations of 1850, 1860 and 1870 whereas Hannah was, but ceases to "exist" after 1870.

     Because all the relevant will books on Family Search are locked, I cannot see if Jefferson Daniel Turner left a will which might clear this up.
     Hannah Turner was born circa 1847, daughter of Jefferson Daniel Turner and Mary Watts Cheatwood, in Virginia.1

     I cannot find anything further about her as of 26 Feb 2021.
