John Mann Turner, the son of Allen and Annie Turner, was born in Mount Pulaski, Logan Co. Illinois and was married to Rebecca Cantonwine on April 8, 1866 in Vancouver, Clark county, WA. Rebecca was the daughter of Dr. Charles A. & Julia (Denslow) Cantonwine and the granddaughter of Charles and Mary Magdalena (Scholl) Cantonwine.
John and Rebecca had six children: Charles (m. (1)Margaret Allison (2) Ida Pendleton, (3) Tena Green), Minnie, Ida, Eva (m. J. Slaughterback), Oscar (m./div. Leona), and Harry. It appears that John and Rebecca later divorced as the 1900 census for Washougal, Clark Co., WA shows John, age 63, divorced, and living with his daughter Eva's family.
