Re: PHILIP TURNOR (1751-1799)

Hello Horsefly, In my biography, MAPMAKER, I recognized only Joseph Turnor as the son of Philip Turnor. I did not follow Joseph's history in any depth but may do some more work on that. I also did not follow the lives of any children of Joseph and Emma and there were 13. I only know about Charlotte ...

Hello rachellelong
Do let me know the source of your information when you can. Wapiscogamy is the earlier name for Brunswick House so your information may be the same as mine.

Re: PHILIP TURNOR (1751-1799)

Re: PHILIP TURNOR (1751-1799)

Hello 'Horsefly', I am glad you have had a chance to read my biography. It is interesting that you have tried the DNA testing. I have not yet done that as I've heard it is not reliable although it seems to be in your case. I have not seen mentioned any other children than Joseph and there seems to b...

Re: PHILIP TURNOR (1751-1799)

Thank you Kerri. I have not come across the name Ronald Benedix in my research. But, I agree, you need to be open to possibilities. Send me any material that you think is relevant to Philip Turnor.

Re: PHILIP TURNOR (1751-1799)

Hello Kerri, I am pleased that you are enjoying my book. Regarding your genealogy: likely my family history separates from yours at the grandchild generation from Philip Turnor, so I rather doubt that I can be of help with your family tree. I'll answer a few of your questions here: Re Philip's paren...

Re: PHILIP TURNOR (1751-1799)

Hello Gnstill, Here is what I now have for dates: Charlotte Turner: born 11 July 1828 or 1829. I have these two birth years from a scrip document and from copy of a Bible register respectively. The other date (6 Dec 1827) was given me by my uncle and I do not know where he got that but I think it is...
