|I am researching the McTurner family from Obion County, Tennessee.John Harlen McTernan was born and raised around Gallitin, TN.He later moved to Dyer County, TN and from there to Obion County, TN., where he married Mary Elizabeth Presley.This was his second marriage, he was first married to Elizabeth Jane Cannon, who was the widow of James McCollum.|
In addition,I am researching the Pride family from Obion County, Tennessee.Jesse Pinkly Pride owened a farm at Walnut Log, Tennessee.I have not been able to learn much about his parents or where he was from before he moved to Obion County and bought a farm in August 1888, I have a copy of the deed.In his will (which I have a copy) dated May 12, 1914 he named his childred as heirs their names were Susie (Pride)Johnson; Willie Pride; Olice Alvie Pride and; Ownesby Commodore Pride.His second wife's name was Sussanna Alexander.
The main surnames in this family are: McTurner, McTernan, McTurnan, Reed, Presley, Pride, Wilson, Calhoun, Alexander, Russell and Marshall.There are also many more surnames from marriages included.The regions the families are from is mostly Tennessee, Missouri, Kentucky and Ohio and, perhaps Indiana or Illinois.
In Particular I am interested in any information on Jesse Pinkly Pride (who may have been born in either Indiana or Illinois), Josiah Alexander, Mary Elizabeth Presley and Sussanna Alexander.
Any information would be appreciated, I am willing to share the information that I have.
