manage to find cemetery info for Mary Turner Ulrey and I would think a 99% chance John is there with her. However, the cemetery at findagrave only has a few listings of those buried there. I attached a pdf with more names and Mary is on the 3rd page and noted wife of John. I will also print below. This is Strong Cemetery or Strong/Powell cemetery is located in Newton Iroqouis Township BUT is in Jasper county. One of those areas where counties split the townships. This grave book made mistake of spelling, it said Ulery when it should say Ulrey and it said wife of Ulrey..

One of the hardest things I find is that in the early years many of the wives were buried under maiden name so almost impossible to find them if you don't have the maiden name.

??very possible aobut Mary Turner Ulrey's mother's lead???

Now, ???there is chance that this Mary Turner may possibly be your Mary's mother. If you look at the 1830, 1840 and this 1850 census. This Mary was living in Hamilton Cnty OH on all 3 census and she was born in 1791 in KY so right age to be mother of your Mary born about 1816 in Kentucky. The ages of female daughters on 1830 census would be good for your Mary too. I have not searched for male Turner deaths (her husband) prior to 1830 since she had to be widow on or before 1830 being listed as head of house..

I suspect this Elizabeth Fosler(Foster) is her daughter and then George W is her son. To bad 1850 census didn't list relationship.
