     Samuel James Turner was born on 3 April 1895, son of Samuel Francis Turner and Sally Beck Gough, in Pedlar Mills, Amherst County, Virginia.4,1,2

     Samuel registered for the draft on 5 June 1917 at Cayuga County, New York. He was 22 years of age and living in Montezuma, New York where he worked as a Hoisting Engineer for Scott Brothers, was single, but claimed exemption for Tuberculosis of the Hip. He is described as of medium height and build with brown eyes and dark hair.

     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. Obviously, not everyone who was registered for the draft was drafted or served in the military.

     The first registration was for men between the ages of 21 and 31 (men born between 5 Jun 1886 and 5 Jun 1896), meaning he had to register.2

     Samuel married Marion H. Holmes in 1920. I am unable to find a marriage record for them as of 4 Apr 2021.5

     Samuel James Turner died on 23 December 1975 at age 80 in St. Petersburg, Pinellas County, Florida,6,7 and was buried in Saint Lukes Episcopal Church Cemetery, Pedlar Mills, Amherst County, Virginia.6
