I have information about this family, but hesitate to post on the net until I have gathered more facts from primary sources.
Arnold Jesse Turner and Pearl Niece Bussey were married in Marshall County, Oklahoma.Smaller counties were being carved out of the Indian Nations after Oklahoma's statehood, so that is why I originally thought Arnold and Pearl were married in Carter County.Also, my original notes on this marriage are from 1987, so I have learned alot since then.Anyway, the marriage is recorded in Marriage Book, Volume I, page 47, Marshall County, Oklahoma.
Pearl is the daughter of Willam Bussey and Margaret Ellen Dumas Bussey Beckham.I have a death date for William of 15 May 1894, but do not have a location or cemetery record.The date is from a family member.Pearl, my gr-grandmother, had a detailed family bible but I do not know what happened to it.
After Will died, Ellen married Monroe Beckham.I cannot locate a marriage record, but I have not looked in all surrounding counties and since this marriage is not in my direct line it is not a priority.The family in on the 1900 Indian Territory census, Chickasaw Nation, Supv Dist. 73 ED 146 page 164B.
I have Margaret Ellen's parents as Francis J Dumas and Margaret C Payne and that she was born in Alabama.On the 1900 census she lists her place of birth as Mississippi. Her mother's maiden name would explain why she was with a Payne family before her marriage to Will.
I hope this is of some help to you.If you have further information you can share, please write back.
