Jessie Knighton Turner daughter of William Miles Knighton and Dora Langston of South Carolina. Wife of Claude Sims Turner and mother of eight children (two are still living, one didn't make it to childhood, so all commonly said she had seven children). They were called: Lib, Horace (later Jim), Tootsie (later Kat), Pearl, Mary Sue (later Mary), Bill, and Wofford (who wished he was a Dusty, as he always did love cowboys).

Jessie was the paternal-granddaughter of Miles Oliver Knighton and Isabella Billings and the maternal-granddaughter of Francis M. Langston and Dorcus Ann Hopkins.

After living most all her life in South Carolina, Jessie moved to Georgia to live with her eldest son. Also with the family was her son's mother-in-law, Evelyn Kingsmore. The family spent many happy years together. Jessie and Evelyn shared a room, cooked, cleaned, laughed, and fussed, both of them are buried in the Oakland Cemetery in Waycross, Georgia. They also share eternity with their Lord Jesus Christ.
