Spencer Turner

Happy Birthday today to Spencer D. Turner who was my Great Great Great Great Grandfather on my mother's side. He was born May 22, 1816 in Clark, Ohio.

Spencer died April 26, 1896 at Wapella, Illinois at the age of 79. He was married to Nancy Hoblit on April 14, 1836 at McLean, Illinois.

They had 12 children, 7 girls and 5 boys. Their oldest was a daughter, Margaret Jane.

Margaret Jane was my Great Great Grandmother. Margaret and her husband moved to Kansas in 1880 and lived at Bernard, Kansas. I have photos of Margaret and her husband Asa Harrison Murphy.

Margaret and Asa's Daughter, Nancy Ellen married Thomas Burr Williams and their daughter Della Elnora was my Great Grandmother.
