Re: Robert Turner in S. C.
My William James Turner (b. 1858), a son of Benjamin Turner and Rebecca Elizabeth Smith was suppose to have come from Coward, S. C. He left home at age 17 and never went back. He had one brother, Joseph Henry Turner(b. 1859) that stayed in Coward and Pamplico area. Joseph married twice-to Mary Ann McAllister and Sophronie Dean. He fathered 25 children. William and Joseph had one sister, Martha, b. about 1861 as found on her mother's census in 1870 and 1880 after shewas married to William Jackson Hicks. This info comes from the Hicks family line.
