In her August 9, 2013 email, Find A Grave Contributor AnnS #47388778 states:

"I know this is what the Shook Cemetery Transcription says for his death date, but I think the Sept 3, 1865 death date is Christina's, especially after looking at her stone that you so lovingly reassembled.

I have his death record and he died 2 Aug 1892 in Washington Twp, Warren County, Ohio. I followed his Greene Co land tax record also and he owned it until 1892. It was what told me he died in Warren Co so that I could get his death record. He really was 96 as the death record indicated. He is also mentioned in the Chapman book in 1890 in a write-up about his nephew David. He married Keziah Turner Beason Jul 27, 1867. She was his first cousin and the widow of Thomas Beason.

I don't really know where he is buried but since Christina is here and the Cemetery list recorded him he may be at Shook. His parents (Joseph & Dinah Small Turner) are at the Turner Cemetery. His son Alan is at Shook, son Leonard at Port William and daughter Mahala at Clarksville."

Excerpt from History of Clinton County, Ohio: Its People, Industries, and Institutions ..." by Albert J. Brown (A.M.), pg. 703:

"Mahala Turner was the daughter of Robert and Christena (Hegler) Turner, the latter a native of Pennsylvania.

Robert Turner was quite a young man when he migrated to Greene county, where he afterwards married. After the death of his wife in 1869, when they still resided in the above-named county, he moved to Warren county, to make his home with his daughter, and there he spent the rest of his life, living to the extraordinary age of ninety-seven years, his death occurring in 1892."
