Thank you for your message.I have no way of knowing if there is a connection here or not as I cannot find anything on Samuel outside of Texas.I do not know if he had brothers or sisters or anything about him before he came to Texas in 1837.
We have made progress on some of his children in Texas and I know that his wife, Emily Midkiff was born in Tennessee and came to Texas in the 1830's.
Samuel and Emily Midkiff Turner had at least 7 children:
Pleasant D. Turner married Sarah Crawford --- no other information on them.
Mary A. Elizabeth Turner married William R. Crawford - it is believed Mary died after the birth of a child named Sarah and that William may have married Sarah Rushing and had 2 children and that William and Sarah died before 1880 as there are 3 Crawford children living with their grandmother Crawford in Angelina County, Texas in 1880.
Samuel Houston Turner married Amanda Franklin.They had 10 children.I have made contact with a descendant and have a great deal of information on this line.Lisa and I have "shook" every tree we can find and Samuel just will not fall out of it!
Emily Turner married Thomas West.They had 6 children.Contact with a descendant and additional information forward but nothing on the past.
Moses K. Turner married 2 times; Mary J. Beavers and Mary A. Chandler.There are 10 children from this family.Moses, his first wife, 2 sons in law, 2 or 3 of his children and a grandchild are all dead by 1910 in Trinity County, Texas.Was there an epidemic of some kind at this time?Made contact with a descendant of the brother of Mary J. Beavers.
Candis Perndis Turner - have no information on this child.Her name is unusual and wonder about the Perndis.Was it Samuel Turner's mother's maiden name?
William Cecil Turner married Emily Jane Hemphill in Angelina County, Texas.They had 7 children. Five lived to adulthood.This is my great grandfather.Descendants have nothing on the past.
As you can see I have a lot to share, but nothing to really go on for the past.
I post all this here hoping that someone searching for Turners will see something that will connect to their line.
