Hi,

I am trying to find family inofrmation on my great grandmother, Julia Anne Turner. I'm guessing she was born about 1895. Her obituary says she was a native of Savannah, Ga, but she died in NewOrleans, LA. She married James David Lanier, also from Ga (Terrell County). They had a few children while still living in Ga, then moved to Birmingham Alabama.While in Alabama, they had my grandmother Dorothy Lee Lanier and I also know my aunt was born there, Pansy Lanier. They all ended up in New Orleans, La and all of them died there. I'm not sure what other information to provide, as I don't have much on her family.

I will attach her obituary, as well as her husbands. I know her husbands parents were Robert H Lanier and Theodosia Virginia Waller, both from Ga.

I would appreciate any help.

Thank you,

Kim

My Grandmother was married for the second or third time to a Lanier.

Mary Elizabeth (nee Shirah) Bechtler Lanier was born about 1911 in Georgia.

She died in 1992 in Charleston, South Carolina. She lived with her husband Cletus Walter Bechtler in Rock Hill, North Carolina and had my mother Fay Ann Bechtler Morgan in 1934. Cletus died in 1936 in North Carolina and my Grandmother remarried a Lanier. I am not sure of his first name and would like to find out who he was and how he died. Family history indicates that he died drunk on a railroad track.

Any of this sound familiar, Anonymous?

Strange that  I should read this story. I have a cousin looking for her great grandfather who has a story very similar to this. But, I think they lived in Louisiana. Even though she is my second cousin, her Laniers are a different set from the ones I'm looking for.

Her grandfather was Wallace Hines Lanier. His father was Arthus Robert Lanier born about 1884. Records show he was married to a Alice Geneva Hayden. Arthur is the one that was supposedly killed on a railroad track while intoxicated and supposedly Christmas Eve. He was born in Washington Parish, Louisiana, but I'm not sure where he died.

I don't think this is my grandmother. My grandmother was born in Ga.
Those Lanier's should stay away from railroad tracks. :)

I'll check all those leads but it's probably not my Lanier either.

Perhaps a transcription error occurred? The 1910 census shows Julia in Birmingham, Jefferson, Alabama. Also the 1920 census shows Julia married to James D in Birmingham, Jefferson, Alabama.

All of the people in the census above are correct :) Dorothy Lanier was my grandmother. Pansy was her sister and so on. I do not see a 1910 census that could be correct for her even in Alabama. The Julia Turner in Alabama that has parents of  Robert Turner and Lula Mellown  is the wrong family. 

I do see both my great grandparents in Birmingham in 1913 in the directory.

I can't find who her parents were if she lived in Savannah or Decatur sad

  


 

Betty, I have a Lanier line that came from TN.  I have checked the names and do not find a common name.  The Turner, Luttrell, Godwin,Laniers of TN.
Thank you Deborah for searching. I appreciate it.

I recently received my great grandmother's death certificate. It gives her birth date as May 10, 1896, even though her headstone say 1892. It says she was born in Savannah Ga and list her father's name as John Turn also born in Ga. Mother's name is unknown (ugh!)
