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.
Louis Tournear was born in 1 Sep 1840 in Adams County, Illinois, the sixth child of John B. Tourney/Tournier and Mary Catherine Ballot/Belot.Louis would marry Mary and have 3 children with her.The family moved to Kansas in 1887 and then to Oklahoma in 1890 according to his daughter's obit.Louis was back in Illinois, in Hancock County, by the 1900 and 1910 censuses, but would be buried in Oklahoma after his death in 1912.Louis's only son never married and neither daughter had any children.
