Trying to locate someone researching the following family of Robert Scott Turner born 1912 in Indiana, lived in Nebraska for a while then went to Iowa and later to Lane Co., Oregon. He was the son of Pascal Russell Turner, son of Robert N. Turner and Rebecca Wilson of Washington Co., Indiana.

On April 27, 1883, Robert N. Turner and wife Rebecca of Washington Co., IN sold to Russell Turner for $100 Robert's undivided interest in the land belonging to his father John Turner (deceased). This deed is recorded in the deed records of Cocke Co., TN. This sale was the outgrowth of a court case that ended up in the TN Supreme Court and the depositions made in this court case also stated that John and Mary Turner's son Robert was living in Indiana. Clearly, Robert did not die in the Civil War.

Social Security Index for this same Robert Turner shows his Social Security was applied for in Iowa before 1951.

Would love to locate someone descended from Robert Scott Turner.

Would like to have an obituary for him which might identify family surviving him.
