The most that I could find was a World War I draft registration card for a Turner Stevens, born 31 May 1895 in Waynesboro, Mississippi.

He may have had at least one child, a daughter named Dorothy born in 1918 in Marion, Mississippi, as the name Turner Stevens is recorded for her father on her school enrollment record.

I could not find a death record, I'm sorry! Do you have an estimate of when he died?

Thank you so much for the information.  My trees are in Ancestry and I’m trying to learn how to navigate through Wikitree.  I need to download a GEDCOM but not sure I can on my iPad.  

Turner was the brother of Minnie Stevens Baughman, my grandmother, and several more siblings. I know they were in Marion County and Wayne County.  I know there are relatives in Jones County but I don’t know their names.  To my knowledge, Turner never married.  He brought Minnie and her two young children to Laurel (about 1924) when she was widowed and took care of them for many years. I don’t know when he died or where he was buried.

The last I found on him was 1940 census in Jones Co, MS.  It says he was divorced. If married it  must have been short, as he is single in 1920. Nothing on death,sorry.
