I don't have any info on her but will research.  What was her husband's name?  Do you know if she moved somewhere from Charlotte County?

Comment by Joann on October 19, 2012 at 11:09pm
Does anyone have any info on olivia turner she was fletcher wellingtons daughter my great grandmother
Comment by Pam Beveridge on October 19, 2012 at 9:21am

My ancestor on the above is #9, Darius Turner.  I believe he died in Idaho in 1920.  I know some people from NB went out there hoping he had a fabulous mining fortune, but came back empty handed.  According to the Censuses, he was a saloon owner and grocery store owner.  Who on the list above is your ancestor?

Comment by Pam Beveridge on October 18, 2012 at 10:02pm

That's interesting, Joann.  Do you have additional information?

Comment by Joann on October 18, 2012 at 9:29pm
He was my great great grandfather
Comment by Pam Beveridge on January 27, 2012 at 1:28pm

Nothing long winded when it comes to genealogy (especially Turner genealogy!).  It's so neat that you now live not far from where the earlier Turner immigrants lived, in NB.

Comment by Gloria Turner on January 27, 2012 at 12:33pm

My ancestors resided at the Turner Farm.  Joseph Turner (ggrandfather) was a life member of the Royal Society of Saint George (I have no idea what this means), his father John Turner (ggrandfather x2) lived in the Barnacre area but I am not sure if he lived at the actual farm but members of our family did.  Joseph married Mary Elson and they had 2 sons, Charlie and Fred in England before moving to Winnipeg, Mb., in 1882.  They had 14 children, 2 were girls.  Joseph began a plumbing and heating company, "Standard Plumbing and Heating" with 3 sons.  John Robert (my grandfather), Albert and Harold.  John Robert married Annie Elizabeth Lindley and had 5 children.  One being my father.

The connection with Richard and Eleanor is that Richard came from Turners who lived at the Farm.  I do not know his fathers name and finding the link is a task.

Any suggestions?

Sorry for being so long winded.
