     William Dudley Turner was born on 10 December 1909, son of Ernest Trelowney Turner and Jonnie D. Dudley, in Paris, Henry County, Tennessee.3

     In 1935, he was still living in Paris, Henry County, Tennessee.4

     On 14 February 1953, Ernest Turner's obituary states he was a "retired dispatcher for the L&N Railroad at Paris and died at his home from a heart attack.

     He was the son of William T. and Emma Arnett Turner.

     One month ago his wife, Mrs. Johnnie Dudley Turner died unexpectedly.

     Survivors include one son, Dudley Turner of Portland, Oregon; one daughter, Mrs. Bill Snow of Tampa; and two sisters-in-law" . . .5

     On 7 March 1983, Ernestine Turner Snow's obituary names one daughter and two sons as survivors, as well as a brother, William Dudley Turner of Portland, Oregon.6

     William Dudley Turner died on 12 July 2001 at age 91 in Washington County, Oregon.7,8

     I suspect this might be the William Turner who was buried with no birth or death information in Greenwood Hills Cemetery, Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon.9
