Seeking William Turner

My recent Turner cousin connection prompted me to start reading the Edward Turner probate documents carefully. You may have heard my groans when I saw the "crying sale" results.

I've been able to figure out where all the children ended up and who they married except for one - William. I've no idea what happened to him other than he was in Natchez in 1807 when the family sold Edward's land. Guess who bought the family Bible at the sale?


Sigh. Maybe I'll find him someday.
