     Delbert Lee Turner was born on 28 February 1888, son of William Scott Turner and Eliza Jane Ragland, in Kentucky.3,4,5

     Delbert Lee Turner, 17, married Hattie Clark, 14, on 25 October 1905 in Robertson County, Tennessee.6,7

     Delbert registered for the draft on 15 June 1917 at Logan County, Kentucky. He was 29 years of age, a farmer, and had a wife and three children. He is described as of medium height, mediam build, with gray eyes and dark brown 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.5

     On 21 June 1939, William Adolphus Turner's obituary names his widow, Mrs. Lottie Gray Turner; a son Willliam Clifton Turner (associated with him in business), two daughters, Mrs. N. O. Bailey and Mrs. W. G. Ogle, both of Bordeaux; four brothers, C. D. Turner and D. L. Turner of Nashville; T. E. Turner of Lewisburg, Ky., L. O. Turner of Mount Vernon, Ill, and five sisters: Mrs. D. C. Paschal of Bowling Green, Ky., Mrs. J. T. Fortner of Saint Elmo, Ill., Mrs. F. A. Graham of Sullivan, Ill., Mrs. Everet Head of Russellville, Ky., and Mrs. R. T. Cheaney of Evansville, Ind.8

     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.

     With no end in sight for the end of World War I, a third and final registration law was instituted which now included all men between the ages of 18 and 45 which added younger men that the previous registrations laws and an older group of men born between 1873 and 1900, meaning he had to register.6

     Prior to his death, he was a Filling Station Operator. He had operated an automobile service station in Bordeaux for seventeen years at the time of his death.2,7
