Death of Mr. E. L. Turner
(For the Dispatch.)
Mr. E. L. Turner. who for more than thirty years was Clerk of the County and Circuit courts of Greensville county, has “passed over the river.”. He died at 7:50 o’clock on the evening of the 24th instant, at this home on main street, in Emporia.
Turner was probably more widely known than any man in Greenesville county. Since early manhood he has been a member of the Masonic order, and had been for many years District Deputy Grand Master for the counties of Greenesville, Sussex, Dinwiddie, Brunswick, and Mecklenburg, and it is not too much to say that by the most faithful performance of every duty that devolved on him he endeared himself to the hearts of hundreds outside of Greensville county. The people of the county regard that they have sustained a personal loss, and expressions of love and admiration for so true a man are heard on all sides.
The burial will take place at the cemetery in Emporia on Friday, 26th Instant. at 2 o’clock P. M.
Mr. Turner was for many years clerk at the Portsmouth Baptist Association, clerk of the Board of Managers of the Emporia Baptist church, and clerk of the Association of Court Clerks of Virginia.
He provided well for his family, and carried insurance policies in the Royal Arcanum, the Guild, the Life Insurance Company of Virginia, the Mutual Reserve Fund Life Association, the Equitable, and probably had policies in other companies.
