Thank you so much for the information. I will pass to my cousins who are from that line. Saturday I went to library & copied the Turney info from the Cherokee Co history book for them (& me), but you have just given me so much more!
Does Ron know any more about the family his Daniel Turney was staying with on the 1850 Cherokee cenus. I looked at that too. It lists the family as Kergan and my mother has confirmed that Kergan was the name of my [multi]great aunt Louisa/Lou/Lutie Walker.
