Re: Jefferson Davis Turner

In Reply to: Jefferson Davis Turner by Colleen Paggi of 1280

I found a Jefferson Turner listed in some court records as the son of Jeanette Turner.
In a summary of Chancery Court Records 1844-1894, transcribed by Reba Boyer, (1980)
H.H. Turner died 1871 possessed with 480 acres except 160 vested to Jane Turner about 1868 in a divorce.
It was very difficult in sorting out his children;
1. James, Hazier, Sarah Jane and Nancy Wasson last two minors;
2. Dialtha Alexander dec'd, one share, her heirs Thomas and Alfred
3. Sarah Jane McDaniel, dec'd, her hiers Alice, Turner Alexander, and Andrew Johnson and perhaps one other child;
4. Emeline Decker dec'd and her heirs are Sarah Elizabeth, Charlotte T. WIlson and husband James, and Willie Emeline:
5. Jefferson son of Jeannette Turner dec'd
6. Sabel dau. of Elizabeth Turner dec'd;
7. Paralee Decker and husband William;
8. Alice Keltner and husband Isaac; being 8 full shares.

There is a Will for Hasbur H. Turner but it is not included in my book; 1820-1870.
You may get a copy from Joyce Reece. She does this for a fee.

Elizabeth 23, Jennette P. 18, Nancy A. 16, Parallea T. 13, Cordelia A. 10
(looks like Jennette might be the Jane above and Cordelia might be the unnamed female.

In 1870
# 111 / 113
Turner, H.H. 58, SC ?? said TN before???
Mary 32
H.H. 1

First wife is next door with son-in-law and family;
# 112/ 114
Decker, William 35
Sarah 11, Tennessee 9, Emeline 5
Turner, Jane 60, Paraile 21, Cordela 18

This may or may not be your Jefferson Turner. He was the only one that I could find. I did not find his mother in 1870 or 1880. She must have moved away for awhile.

Hope this will help.
