Well, being as some of the other Turners who came to TX from TN are related to a lot of the May family through marriage, starting to wonder how large was the group who migrated from TN to TX?

I've been to the site of the burial of Spaight's Battalion soldiers from the CW in Sabine Pass, TX. It is a well-kept graveyard with numerous graves that are not marked along with some that are marked as being soldiers of this battalion; however, most of the graves at this site are unmarked but with stones or markers on them that do not identify who is buried there. Down the road across the other side is another graveyard with more soldiers, some from the Mexican-American War of 1846 but the grass is waist high. I do remember a tombstone for an Isaac S Johnson, soldier of the War of 1846. No idea who he belongs to or who else is buried there. The grass was too tall to be out walking through it.
