I have been looking for a pic of my father Arthur Joseph Turner now for years. I only had one and lost it. He died around 1955-56 . He was suppose to have been raised in a Catholic orphanage. I know he had a brother named Raymond but I don't remember anything else. He was shot in a Baltimore Bar. My name is Dianne Turner. He worked for Baltimore City and was passed the bar to become a lawyer. don't know much more.

Who was he married too,also her maiden name.
he was married to Ada Lorraine Ricker daughter of Ada Alva and William M Ricker he was born in 1925 or 26
I do hope you find a picture of your father.  I found a picture of my father in his high School Annual, that we had never seen, and found out he was a football player, also had a picture of him in his football uniform.  Maybe that could be a source for you to follow up on, if you get no real results here. Good luck hunting!
I do know that he was in the Army and he had several metals that disappeared. He was in the Army WW2 also he was in law school I think in Baltimore but I don't know where. Thanks for you help though.
Ada Loraine Ricker,died Ada Loraine Smith.See no marriage too Arthur

Turner.
he was her second husband first one was Harry Daffin  3rd husband William Smith the man who shot my father Arthur Turner
Might be worth purchasing a subscription to the Baltimore Sun's archives to look for newspaper accounts of the shooting that might offer more clues for you to follow.
I did go to the main library and had a copy of it but I lost it. There was a pic of him in there but you couldn't really tell who he was it was black and white and could barely see it.
