My research focus is through the WILLIAMS-TURNER family line, Louisa Turner being a half-sister to my direct ancestor, Malkijah Williams. I have been posting info. for many years on the Williams; Turner; Duty family forums, as well as many other allied lines. These families share a rich, early Texas pioneering history and I have included links and documents where possible. I do not claim to have proven these connections, but perhaps these posts will assist others with 'hints' toward a more thorough investigation of their own direct lines. The Turner family roots date back to the Mayflower with many decsendants already having proven this line.
