Very little is known about the father of Essie. His name was John Meek and he was very secretive about his life. He would leave for long periods of time and would not tell his wife about what he was doing or where he had been. He abandoned his wife and daughter when Essie was just one year old. Essie's mother then married John Barnett on November 9, 1892 in Eddy, Texas. Essie married Andrew Jackson Turvaville Sr. on April 28, 1906 and they had 9 children: Lowell Jackson, Roland Leroy, Mary Evelyn, Juanita, Ruth, Carl, Paul, Andrew Jr., & Jewell Turvaville. Essie broke her hip and lived in a nursing home in Chillicothe. She died of pneumonia.
