Joseph Turner
Birth: Aug. 17, 1771
Wilkes County
North Carolina, USA
Death: May 17, 1847
New Jasper
Greene County
Ohio, USA

Joseph was born in Wilkes County, North Carolina on August 17, 1771, the youngest son of Robert and Mary Turner. When he was in his teens, his family moved to Jefferson County, Tennessee, where his mother's relatives, the Mills had also relocated. Following in his father's footsteps he joined the military, and fought in the War of 1812. He married Dinah Small, who was born in Jefferson County, Tennessee on October 12, 1774. At least some of their children (Sarah, Eleanor, Robert, Jonah, Joseph, and Rhoda) were born while they lived in Tennessee.

Answering an unknown call, Joseph and Dinah headed north to the farmlands of Ohio. They settled on Caesar's Creek, five miles southeast of Xenia, in Greene County, Ohio, where they homesteaded and farmed on 100 acres of land from the government.

His children were:
Sarah "Sally" (1794-1851), Eleanor "Nellie" (1799-1865), Mary (1800-?), Robert (1803-1885?), George (1805-1890), Joseph (1806-?), Jonah (1807-1865), Rhoda (1809-1890), Elijah (1815-1899), and Patience (1819-1902). Each of them was raised in the Quaker faith as their father had been before them.

Joseph passed away on May 17, 1847, and was buried on his own farm in the Turner Cemetery in New Jasper Township.
