I am trying to find a death record for a James Turner, abt 1820 to abt 1881. James was married to a Mary DeLong, and they lived and raised their children in Perry Twp., Hocking County, Ohio. I found a record of a James Turner that went to the "County Infirmary" in 1880, and passed away in 1881. I think that this gentleman may be my grgr-grandfather. In the 1880 Federal Census, it shows that James was still living, however; in the 1890 census, it shows that Mary was widowed. I have searched for anything about "my" James Turner since 1990, and have had very little luck. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I just would like to know what cemetery he is in, and more than anything; who his parents were, and where they were really from. Thanks again.

P.S. Some records show that both parents were from Virginia, other records show his father from Virginia,and the mother from either Pennsylvania or Ohio.
