John Turner
John TURNER was born about 1690 in Lands End, Cornwall. He d. about 1742 in Caroline Co VA. John married (1) Elizabeth ___ on 1 Jul 1718 in Queen Anne's, Parish, Prince Georges Co MD. Elizabeth d. about 1744. Whether Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego were actually sons of John Turner or were even born in Caroline County, Virginia is still unsubstantiated. What is known however is that Shadrack and Meshack were brothers. Some people claim to have extended the family line further. Researchers making the connection to Richard and to the children below base their work on information taken from the Caroline County, Virginia Order Book from 1744. Based on the asumption that John died before the 1742 probate of Richard Turner's estate, the death of his wife around 1744 resulted in their children being assigned to a guardian. The 1744 Order Book lists Meshack, Abednego, Sarah, Elizabeth and Ann with guardianships. It is supposed that Shadrach would already have been 16 at the time and no longer needing a guardian.
According to the Caroline County, Virginia, Order Book 1740-1746, Page 344 (11 January 1745 these are the choices:
Meshech Turner being admitted to choose a guardian made choice of James Turner, who with Saml. Norment acknowledged their bond.
Abednego Turner being admitted to choose a guardian made choice of Wm. Pemberton, who with Robt. Powell acknowledged their bond.
Elizabeth Turner being admitted to choose a guardian made choice of Jason Meadows, who with Lewis Turner acknowedged their bond.
Sarah Turner being admitted to choose a guardian made choice of James Turner, who with Saml. Norment acknowledged their bond.
Ann Turner being admitted to choose a guardian made choice of Jonas Meadows who with Lewis Turner acknowledged their bond.
All of the Turners moved west, James into Bedford County and Shadrack into Henry Couny, which was apparently cut from Bedford. Descendents of James also lived in Henry and Franklin Counties. Citing [4]
Shadrack was the nephew of my ancestor, James Turner. When the mother of the children died Shadrack was already sixteen so no guardian was named for him. They were named for the other children in the family. All this time the father was already deceased or no guardian would have been named. He, the father, was apparently John Turner, brother of James Turner, and son of Richard Turner, who died in 1744. Shadrack's mother was named Elizabeth.
According to the Caroline County, Virginia, Order Book 1740-1746, Page 344 (11 January 1745 these are the choices:
Meshech Turner being admitted to choose a guardian made choice of James Turner, who with Saml. Norment acknowledged their bond.
Abednego Turner being admitted to choose a guardian made choice of Wm. Pemberton, who with Robt. Powell acknowledged their bond.
Elizabeth Turner being admitted to choose a guardian made choice of Jason Meadows, who with Lewis Turner acknowedged their bond.
Sarah Turner being admitted to choose a guardian made choice of James Turner, who with Saml. Norment acknowledged their bond.
Ann Turner being admitted to choose a guardian made choice of Jonas Meadows who with Lewis Turner acknowledged their bond.
There is a problem as to who Elizabeth BRASHEARS' husband was. John Turner son of John Turner and Sarah Blevins or John Turner son of Richard Turner. Family seach lists the former and others have the latter. Each list different children. Wife's Name: Elizabeth BRASHEARS
Born: 27 Jul 1699 Place: Calvert, Md

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with John 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 John:

Hello Lisa,

I am working on a family mystery using DNA. I have a male Line, Y-DNA tester whose top matches trace their line back to Shadrack. Since the Matches are a genetic Distance of 1 it is a pretty clear indicator that someone connected to the Turner Family also settled or spent time in Polk County, NC in 1855.

I hopefully will get some research done and make connections to NC, fingers crossed. If you are interested in looking at more informaiton on the mystery - look at William Pinkney Hannon's Profile.

Turner-13627 and Turner-962 appear to represent the same person because: Birth date will need decided. The Find a grave link is 1690, but a FamilySearch Tree is 1689 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:2:3DW6-1KJ

The about button could be used, but one of you profile managers needs to concede. I'm a descendant, but not a profile manage. K
