Re: Charles Turner and Mary Ann Graves
My name is Cliff Gant and a grandson of Nancy Emily Turner born 1850 in Sumner Co., TN. She waa a daughter of James H. Turner born in NC and Martha T. Hughes. James brothers included Mathew and Chares Wesley (Doc) Turner who marrried Mary (Polly) Graves who were parents of Dr. Charles and Marlee of Crab Creek, Marion Co., IL
James H. Turner was a son of Charles Turner born 1776-1794 in NC who, in turn, was a son of John Turner born ca. 1750 and died in Logan Co., KY in 1814 leaving 11 children by 2 wives; the second being Mary (Polly) Williams whom he married in 1798 in Granville Co., NC.
John was reportedly a Revoluyionary War soldier according to a gret grandson but I have not beeb able to confirm this. This descendant, James W. Turner a Teahcer in Crab Crrek wrote a personal memoir and claimed the Turners were early settlersd in VA and moved to NC before the state became a stste. Some of his writings have not been verified by me; however, I have lots of information about my Turners and suggest you check out what other postings I have made on this forum.
I'd like to hear more information from you and give you whatgever infprmation I can give by emailing me at the address above
