Who is the father of Cordelia Turner Beason?

+7 votes
Delia was born to  ???? Turner and Nancy Jane Henderson.  Her mother remarried  James N. Williams. She already had three children, John L., Sarah, and Cordelia Turner. The 1860 Census shows she is now married to James N. Willilams and has one child by this marriage,  William Williams.

I need help find the father of the Turner children especially Cordelia.

Thanks Betty, I know who she married D. C. Turner is Delia Cordelia Turner.  Her husband is Clay Beason.  I am looking to identify her father.
Now a new delemia who were the parents of John William Turner that married Nancy Jane Henderson.  Was he born in GA or AL? Did They divorce? or did he desert? He was still living and died 1921. Did he remarry? and so the world turns.

Betty, thanks for the information, I am not a member of Ancestry and I cannot view the records.
Ancestry only has the above data. You have to buy a document from Alabama.
I have a cousin there who will be getting a copy of the record.  Thanks again.
Cool. Hopefully it has the info you are looking for.
