I am looking for descendants of William Thomas and Elizabeth (McKinney) TURNER. They left Jersey County, IL, and settled in the Enid, OK area in the 1890s. They, and several of their children, are buried in Enid Cemetery. William and Elizabeth both died in the early 1920s.
I've been able to find several of their daughters' married names including:
Lucy 1868-1941 (married Charles COPE) Nora Ellen 1877 - 1917 (married Walter A. WILLIAMS) Sarah Edith "Sallie" 1880-1968 (married to George A. WAKEFIELD, had a daughter, Winona) Jessie Pearl 1885-1960s (married Harold LYNCH) Bessie Jane 1888-1961 (married ? ROWLEY and had 2 kids - Harold and Helen; later married Clarence BAKER and ? BOARDMAN).
They also had three sons, William Edward, Louis Ross, and John H. TURNER. (I think Louis had a son named William Thomas TURNER who died in 1975.) Louis and two wives, as well as William Thomas, are all buried at Enid Cemetery. There is a William L. TURNER buried in the same section as my Turners and while the dates are about right (1866-1912), I've got no proof it's William and Elizabeth's son.
Do ANY of these folks sound familiar? If they're in your family tree, they've got a branch in mine, too. I've got a lot of good info on Elizabeth McKinney Turner to share and would love to fill in the blanks on these Turner kids. I hope to hear from someone. Thanks!
