This bible is in possession of [name and references removed due to privacy laws.] Tinie Turner Mallard was the daughter of Howard William Turner and Elizabeth C Norman Turner. I might note here that Mary Ann Marable Turner was the wife of Jackson Johnson, and the great grandparents of Maxine Johnson. Jackson Johnson and his first wife Susannah, were the great great grandparents of Margaret Whitfield, Rebecca Jones, Earl W Rice, and Ruby Rice. Richard D Turner and wife Sarah as well as Howard W Turner and wife Elizabeth are buried in the Turner Cemetery which is located behind the Lloyd Johnson home on Big Richland Creek, and this was the site of the original Richard Turner home. Richard D was the son of Goerge Turner, a prominent Primitive Baptist Minister, and Sarah Adams Turner. George Turner died in 1862 in Humphreys County, and was buried on Blue Creek on the farm once owned by a Mr. Matlock, about two miles south of Waverly. This cemetery was said to be located about where the road leads off Highway 13 toward the forks of Blue Creek, and this cemetery does not exist anymore. George Turner was the son of John Turner, a Revolutionary War soldier, and John is buried in Dickson County, Tennessee.

There are many Turner descendants in Humphreys County, all descending from Richard D Turner. Caroline Dillard Turner married John Trogdon and one of their children was Georgia Ann Trogdon who married William Samuel Lumsden. This is the line through which Roberta White Robertson descends.

Caroline Turner Trogdon, after the death of her husband, married her brother in law, Alfred Trogdon, and they reared her small children until her death. Then Alfred married Sarah Jane Curtis (B 1852) who was the only child of Elizabeth Jane Turner Curtis and James W Curtis. Elizabeth Jane Turner Curtis was a sister to Caroline Dillard Turner Trogdon. Then Alfred and Sarah were the parents of Ada Trogdon, who married Allen Verner Anderson. These were the parents of Bill Anderson, LaVern Anderson, and Elizabeth Anderson McKeel.
