Birth: 1817

Death: 1843, USA

History of Crawford County, Arkansas p. 484 ... A large tombstone to Jesse Turner, "a native of Orange Co., NC, but during and ever since the territorial days, a res of Arkansa," stands on a little plot of ground where the pioneer is buried between the bodies of his first and second wife. Violet P. Turner, born in Alleghany Co., PA, 1817-1843, it is said was the wife of his heart, and Rebecca Allen, an Englishwoman and his second wife, was the wife of intellect. Whatever the story, there is a broken column, which stands as it was originally made, marking the grave of his first wife and the grave of Rebecca Allen Turner is unmarked.
The grass grows tall in the eastern part of Fairview cemetery. It was here, years ago, that a spring constantly flowed, and here the negroes took their clothes to wash. Now it is covered with grass-grown graves and modest stones. On the brow of the hill is the field where almost a hundred soldiers were buried in the Civil War. The graves were originally marked by the numbers which were the men's only identification, but now even these signs are gone. In another part of the cem. is a grave whose tombstone bears the name of James Phillips, revolutionary soldier, who died in 1831.
