HELP!! Our Turner family history kept by a family very interested in James W Turner (Turner-2168) but none of our records show an Israel Turner married to Charity (Freeman) Jennings. Our family history clearly shows that the man who married her was James William Turner. Can anyone shed any light on why this site refers to him as Israel? It was not part of his formal name in any record we can find.

It looks like his name is copied from FindAGrave, which does not include a picture of a tombstone.

Yes - hoping for more info; some profiles on Ancestry list him that way too; and I can't figure out why?
