I am trying to find out more about William Wesley's parents. The 1850 Sumter County census shows that he is living with his wife, Cynthia, his 9 mo. old son, Isaac (Ike), Whitfield Turner and Mary Turner, which my first assumption is his brother and mother. The 1860 census shows a Mary Turner living with him, but the age doesn't fit with the Mary Turner from the 1850 census.
I have seen some posts thinking that he is descended from the Meschach, Shadrach, Abednego Turner's, Meshach, I believe. But, I can't seem to make that connection, the pieces just don't fall into place very well.
Do you have any information on his parents? I have gotten stuck.
Also, I believe that William Wesley Turner died around June 1864. He was running for sheriff in the fall of 1863, but in the probate office, it shows that Shadrack T. Crawford fileed for temporary letter of administration for the estate of W. W. Turner, deceased, on July 4, 1864. I also have a copy of the Sumter Republican from 1864 with a notice of death. However, I have not been able to locate his burial site. I thought it might be in the Pennington cemetary but it doesn't appear to be.
I appreciate any information that you have and I will share what I have.
