Thank you for your reply.
Yes, I have a d/c for John Thomas F.Turner.
He died April 1st,1955 Cooper,Delta Co.Tx.age stated as 83.
His d/c says he was born Feb.19,1871 Kaufman Co.TX.
I have census for him 1900 through 1930.
Kaufman Co. does not show him in their 1880 census, they suggest I try Hunt Co.
I have had some bad expierances with familysearch.org on my other family searches...they have my FRENCH family spelled FRANCK...and my SPEARS family spelled, SPEASA.
Now I am wondering if the TURNER name is misspelled on the 1880 cenus also.I have searched Tyner, tarner,Sarner, Bunner, lots and lots of name varities, no luck.
You ask if I was sure he was b. Hunt Co.-No.
and I have no idea where he was living in 1880, how could I , since I haven't found him there.
The 1900 Kaufman Co. census have his sister Alice and her husband.
B. Willhite W,M, 24, b.March 1876,Missouri.M: 2 yr.
Alice Willhite W.F.17,b.July 1882,M:2 yr.
Living in Justice pct. Kaufman Co TX.
I have not been able to find a marriage recvord, or a 1910 census for them.
Of course she would not be on the 1880 census with John Thomas Turner and his parents.
I donot know of any other bro's or sister's for John Thomas Turner.
I think about giving up, for I have searched so long, but always come back to the search.
Thanks again for your help.
