I do not know what records that Trinity County has on land, but that is a good idea. I know that Samuel #1 (I'll call the father #1 to help keep them straight) got a land grant of 1280 acres for coming to Texas in 1837. I have some of the land records that I copied at the Texas General Land office in Austin. The information there hasn't helped much, especially with finding any family names.
It would be good to know if that $3,000 included any land in Trinity County and what happened to it at the death of Samuel #1. We know that children survived Samuel #1 sooooo there should have been a will, don't you think? I have not looked in Angelina County for a will either.
I have never checked Angelina County for any land records, however I know that several of the Turner children married or at least got their marriage license in Angelina County. Somewhere back there they say the Trinity County Courthouse burned - so that may account for them going to Angelina County to get licenses. Also any land transactions COULD have been recorded in Angelina County if the transfers took place during the "burned" era. It would be good to know the date the Courthouse burned if it really did and just what records were lost.
If it is possible to check on this then it may be a good thing to check.
I do have those land grant records for Samuel #1 if you want a copy I will be happy to send you a copy.
You can email me your address.
