John "Jack" Marion Turner was the son of James W. and Julia A. E.(nee:Burton) Turner of Mobile, AL.

"Jack" was age 6 and had a 4 month old sister Ida in the 1870 Meridian, MS census. In the 1880 Marion co., AL census his parents James and Julia were living alone and "Jack" would have been about 16 yrs old, perhaps living with relatives??

John M. Turner was age 36 yrs old in 1900 Florence city, Lauderdale, AL census and his widowed mother Julia Turner was in his household with his family. Julia stated in the census that she had mothered only one child and had only one living. Baby Ida must have died as an infant and Julia evidently thought of John as her only child. John and Beulah moved their family to Lexington, Fayette, Ky.

Jack and Beulah had six known children, 4 girls and 2 boys. Ide Lee (m. Daniel V.Terrell), Nelson "Nell" Beulah (never married), and Howard (m. Katherine Payne) and all three are buried in this cemetery with their parents.

I have not located information on James David Turner except that he was born April 23, 1895 in Milledgeville, GA and moved from KY to New York; he died in New York March 1, 1977. James filled out his WWII Draft Reg. in NY and named his mother and her KY address as a person that would know how to contact him.

Rebecca Lewis Turner (m. Maurice Richard Black) but no other info on her yet. Maurice is buried in KY but no sign of Rebecca's burial near Maurice's. One researcher states she died March 9, 1995 in Florence, SC.

Laura E. Turner (m. E. B. Jones) and she died in San Diego, CA June 21, 1990.

I have not located the places of burial yet for these three children.
