States: Texas: Van Zandt
John Kile Turner, Jr. was born in Wills Point, Van Zandt County, Texas October 12, 1876 or 1878 and died 1955 in Hugo, Choctaw County, OK. He married Melissa Jane Wade January 5, 1899 in Edgewood, Van Zandt County, Texas. (She was born December 2, 1881 in Edgewood and died June 11, 1957 in Edgewood.)
"Kile" and "Lissie" had six children: Esther Lee 1900, Willie Mae 1901, Dewey 1903, David Edward 1905, Oma 1908 and Lokell 1910. But they divorced in about 1913 and he moved to Hugo, OK where he had four more children with his wife Nellie. He is buried in Spencerville Cemetery north of Hugo, OK.
This info was told to me by my grandmother Melissa Jane Wade Turner and I recorded it in her bible, which I have. I have searched for John Kile Turner's ancestors, but without success. Would like to hear from anyone who may have these connections. Sharon
