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

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

     Delbert Lee Turner 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 12 December 1943, Carl Columbus Turner's obituary was published:
