Birth: Nov. 5, 1792
Berkshire County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Aug. 13, 1826, USA

Turner married Huldah Pease 16 Mar 1815. (Pease genealogy) They lived in Avon, Livingston Co., NY in 1820 (census). They probably moved to MI between 1823 and 1826. Daughter, Alzina Huldah Chappell was born 23 Dec 1823 in Avon, Livingston Co., NY. Turner bought over 750 acres of land in Saginaw County in 1824/1825. He also owned lots in Pontiac. Turner, Huldah, and daughter Alvira R. all died in MI in 1826. Daughter Alzina was only three at that time. They also had a daughter Almira who survived. Turner's brother, Enos Chappell, was appointed guardian of Alizina and Almira. He probably took Alzina and Almira back to NY. Enos died in Oct 1826. Thomas Pease became the girls' guardian. He was probably Huldah Pease Chappell's brother. Alzina Chappell married Rev. William Davis Tomkinson in 1840 in Wayne County, NY. They moved to Pontiac, Oakland County, MI in the 1840s. They probably had the gravestone marker made at that time. It is unknown if Turner, Huldah, and baby Alvira are actually buried in Oakhill Cemetery or on their land in Saginaw County, Saginaw County, MI.
