Amos Turner 1820 and 1830 Census m Nancy Smith

I'm looking for help on the Amos Turner of the 1820 and 1830 Census of Lenoir Co. NC.

He was born in 1800. He married Nancy Smith who is thought to be a daughter of Isaiah Smith. She may be a sister of Job Smith but not 100% sure at this time.

Some family histories list Amos Turner as a son of a William Turner and I'm trying to confirm or at least see if there is enough evidence to support that relationship.

The following references appear in Deed Book Index for Lenoir Co. which I'm hoping maybe someone has access to abstracts of the actual deeds to be able to see if clues appear in them.

Deed Book 25 (covers Aug 1819 to Dec 1822)
p. 528 Arial Jones to Amos Turner
p. 360 William Turner to Amos Turner
p. 375 William Turner to Silas Turner

Deed Book 26 (Jan 1822-Oct 1828)
p. 445 James Davis to Amos Turner
p. 257 Silas Turner to William C. Turner
p. 454 Amos Turner to Christopher Lawson

Deed Book 27 (Oct 1828 to 1833)
p. 242 Martha Carter to Amos Turner
p. 252 Amos Turner to Job Smith

Book 28 (1833-Dec 1838)
p. 185 Amos Turner to Lewis Jones

There may be a connection with the Silas Turner on Census records in Lenoir Co. along with Amos Turner.

Amos Turner moves to Georgia before 1840.

Amos and Nancy Smith Turner had the following children:

Nancy b 1821 NC
Silpha b 1821 NC (twins)
Job b 1823 Lenoir Co. NC
Aretus b 1825 NC
William b 1828 NC
Smith b 1830 NC
Louisa b 1832 NC
Lou Ann b 1832
Marenday b 1834 NC
Laney Jane b 1838 Houston Co. GA
Amost Daniel b 1844 GA
Narcissus Adeline b 1849 Houston/Marion Co. GA

We have documented this line's DNA and we have several perfect 37/37 marker matches to lines that may come out of the Isle of Wight/Southampton Co. Turners.

Could this line of Amos be connected to the Simon Turner who died in 1761/2 in Southampton Co. VA who left land holdings in Johnston Co. NC to sons Arthur, William, and Thomas?

I believe that Amos may be related to the earlier Silas Turner (older than he was) who may have married Sarah/Sally Herring but not positive.

Also could have some connection to Turners of Jones Co. who appear some years in Jones Co. and some years in Lenoir Co. census.

Any help appreciated.
