I'm trying to make the link between John Turner (elder) b1620 and one Asa Turner b1765. The series John (elder) + Mary Brewster > Jonathan b1646 > Isaac > Jonathan > Asa b 1743 > Asa b 1773 m Lydia Hancock isn't it, as my Asa was b 1765 m Sarah Goodell.
I do have a series showing John (elder) marrying a Deborah Williams, whence John b1654 > Ebenezer b1693 > Bezaleel b1725 > Asa b1765. In support of this I have a citation of John marrying Deborah in Scituate in Feb 1648, but that is incompatible with your chart.
You have yet another possible series which shows John (elder) + Mary Brewster > John b1654 + Abigail Padershell, but there is no issue named Ebenezer, so I can't connect that way.
Any thoughts on how this might fit together?
Thanks very much,
John Diefenbach (grdson of H T Turner, b1874 in Gardner MA)
If you are making John TURNER (elder) b, 1620 (from your first paragraph) the same as "John (elder) marrying Deborah Williams", (from your 2nd paragraph) they aren't. They are two different people. The second John (m. Deborah) is not descended from Humphrey TURNER. I have the John m. to Deborah in one of my databases and will soon post that in the Turner Group here on Genealogy Wise. Since you are looking for an Asa b. 1765 then that seems like the line you want. I do not have a wife for him in my database though, sorry. I would be interested in any descendants from Asa's. Thanks, Jim.
Thanks for your note. Having two different Johns would certainly help resolve the question. However, I do have a source citation that shows John + Deborah as descended from Humphrey- see the att. That said, one of my first discoveries in tracking genealogy is that there's a lot of bad information out there. I'll be very interested in seeing the correct line when you post it.
Asa Turner is my GGG grandfather, by Jason T, Andrew Watson T, and Henry Thomas T, who was my mother's father. I'd be glad to send you what I know about the family. What is the best way to send it? I've never used GEDCOM- would that, or an RTF file, be the best way?
Unfortunately I have very little original research to offer you. My grandmother was an avid genealogist, and proved a Mayflower line to Degory Priest back in the '30s. I have all her materials, but have not sorted through them yet- most pertain to the Robinson line on her mother's side. My sister lives near Boston, and is open to doing local research if that would be helpful.
Attachment is wrong. None of the John TURNER's (John "the elder", John "the younger" & John m. to Deborah) were born in MA they were all born in England. I have posted the John TURNER & Deborah genealogy in the TURNER Surname group here on Genealogy Wise. If you look at the genealogies posted on WorldConnect, I am finding on the lines I am researching about an 80% error rate.
A RTF file is fine. The problem with the RTF I post seem not to include the sources listed in the footnotes (which are different then info recorded in the text section. If you want a hardcopy printout let me know (need to send me your snail mail address, do not give it here). Thanks, Jim.
Thanks very much for the Turner posting. Great information. Let me digest it for a few days, update the Asa T descendents, and I'll be back to you.
