Death: May 22, 1887

Ruthama was the daughter of Jeremiah Crowley II and Mary "Polly" Cary. She married Elder John Turnidge, a Primitive Baptist Minister, 1836 in Missouri. They had eleven children: Martha Jane; Mary Polly; Nancy; Sarilda; Joseph Elijah; Vincent Jasper; James Calvin; Eliza J.; Jessie A.; S. E.; Frances F. They first lived in LaFayette County, Missouri but by 1847 they were in Caldwell County. Soon after the Civil War, her husband purchased a large amount of land in Lawrence County so they and their sons could all have farms close to each other. They lived there until the summer of 1874 when they immigrated to Polk County, Oregon.

I would have loved to hear the stories my GrGr grandmother could have told of her journey from Missouri to Oregon. Someday I pray I meet her.
