Any ideas on who D. M. Turner was that married Sarah Haywood on May 16, 1865 in Calhoun County, AL.

When Cousins marry Cousins it is confusing to say the least,  but when someone marries and they have a different Surname than the person they marry, it is easier to find the parents.  D. M. (Initials only) Turner married Sarah Haywood in Calhoun County, AL on May 16th 1865, according to Marriage records in AL. Sara's mother was Jane Turner who married George Haywood.  Any help on identifying who D. M. Turner is, or who his parents are, or any siblings would be appreciated.  (Sorry for the mistatement before.)

Sarah's maiden name is Haywood. D.M. Turner sometimes shows up at as T.M. Turner, two times. He also shows up as D.M. Turner two times. Not sure whether his first initial is a D or a T.

Sarah's Mother was Jane/Jaine Turner who married George Haywood first, then later married Francis Campbell. That was the Turner connection.  Sorry that I mistated the Turner to Turner marriage.  I DO believe that they are related.  Jane Turner's brother William T. R. Turner married George Haywood's sister Lucinda/Syntha Haywood.  Don't know if George Haywood died in Civil War or just left and never returned, but don't know much about why Jane and two or three children were left there in AL.  I appreciate your assisstance, please excuse my mistatement.

Is this the same Jane Turner that married Francis Marion Campbell?
Yes it is, she was married to George Haywood first, they had 3 children I believe, then after his death she married Frances Campbell.

I have Hayward ancestors, but there may not be a connection between the two surnames.
Thanks Frank. I do not think our lines tie together either, but do appreciate your help.
