Samuel & Nancy Turner
Buena - I just happened to see your recent memorials for Samuel and Nancy Turner. I know where they are buried but sadly their graves have been destroyed. They were buried in the William Pullen graveyard in Avondale (Jefferson County AL). Several years ago I found an article from the 1880s/1890s from an early Birmingham newspaper discussing the sad condition of the graveyard. Thankfully the writer of the article documentated the dates on the headstones:

Samuel Turner (born 11 August 1770 - died 4 July 1852)

Nancy Turner (born 4 May 1765 - died 22 October 1851)

If I remember correctly the small graveyard was located on 6th Ave S between 34th and 35th Streets South (Avondale).

There were two other graves located in the small graveyard, that of William Pullen and his wife Mary. These two graves were relocated to Forest Hill Cemetery on 7 December 1924.

Let me find the article and I will scan it as a pdf and I will email it to you. I will try to find it tonight and I will email it to you from my work email.

Best regards - Scott

RE: James A. Turner #45343961
Hi there,
I'd rather not transfer this one as he is my direct ancestor.

I'd rather have the place of burial before linking. The primary purpose of findagrave is to find a grave. Are there any sources for where they might have been buried?

Spring Ridge
I have Spring Ridge and Ellington-Turner listed as 2 different cemeteries. No GPS or known location on Ellington-Turner. The GPS for Spring Ridge takes you to the spot where I made the pictures. If you can give any directions, i will be glad to double check. I hope that the cemetery is still out there somewhere and that the GPS was simply wrong.

Wayne Ham
As I understand it, Wayne Ham (46872720) was prohibited from posting anymore burials or attachments in Find A Grave because he was posting duplicate memorials even after being warned not to post them.

They can probably transfer his burials that are related to you by sending them a note to and explain the situation. If he has several burials you are connected to, make sure you give them the burial ID number.

Hi Buena - You're in luck. I'm not usually in the area, but I happened to be driving right by this morning for an errand after church. So you asked on just the right day! Usually it takes me 1-2 months to get around to driving over there. I just emailed you.

William Allen
I found this in a web-site about old towns in Mississippi.

F. M. Glass settled near the village around 1845. He was a member of the Mississippi Legislature in the 1880's and a member of the Mississippi Constitutional Convention of 1890. William Allen lived in the area before the Civil War and is buried in the Sallis Cemetery. He had two sons, Matt and Will Allen. Other early settlers were John Sallis, Robert J. Woods, William Butler Loyd, Enoch and Nancy Williams, the Ellingtons, Harmans and Browns as well as the Blacks and Hendersons. A little to the west, between Bluff Springs and the Big Black, early settlers included William Rainey and his sons, James C., David and William Rufus and also John and Nancy Russell.
