J. C. Turner was born in Tennessee around 1831. In 1860 he was living in Spring Creek Township, Arkansas with his wife Sarah and four of their children (all of whom were born in Mississippi). They were listed in the same household as the Brooks family, on whose farm they may have been living.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with J by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with J:
