Re: Turner, George
In Response To: Turner, George ()

I am looking for anyone who is researching the George Turner family of Belmont County, Ohio or Guernsey County, Ohio. I believe he migrated from Virginia to Ohio, in early 1815. His sister or another close relative was Jane Turner, who married Samuel Jones in 1815 in Belmont County. I'm not sure that this is the George Turner who was married to Silky (Betts) Wooten, aka Turner, aka Creek, in or near Cambridige, Ohio.

Any lead to Jane Turner Jones would be appreciated.


There are several pages including pictures about the TURNER family in Wayne L. SNIDERS' "Guernsey County's Black Pioneers, Patriots, and Persons". Silky and George lived in a FPC Settlement near Barnesville, Belmont County, Ohio. She later moved to Guernsey County, Ohio after the death of George. However it does not mention a Jane TURNER JONES or a Samuel JONES.

[Note: There is another FPC Settlement (LETT) in Muskingum County, Ohio (Meigs Township) bordering Guernsey County, Ohio (Spencer Township)].
