I rarely see our families anywhere online so I thought I would go ahead and post what I have and maybe that will help some of us Tournear researchers find each other and share information. I have mainly been working on John Baptiste Tournier's (John B. Tourney) children from his second wife and since most of them went by the Tournear version of their surname, this was the board I chose. I have been trying to organize what I have for a few people who asked for it and no matter how much I find it always looks incomplete.
John B. Tournear was born 26 Jan 1838 in Adams County, Illinois, the fourth child of John B. Tourney/Tournier and Mary (Marie) Catherine Ballot/Belot. John married Martha McCleery and they had 6 children.The family moved to Daviess County, Missouri between 1868 and 1870.John died in 1873 and Martha moved with family to Pike County, Illinois.
