  • Notes 
    • BIO:"Uncle Adam Turner lived on a farm about three miles north of
      Cedarville. Their family was large, about the same size as ours, and,
      as we were near of an age, we visited frequently and had good times
      together. He was a good farmer and fruit raiser. He ruled in his own
      house, and Aunt Nellie seemed willing to have it so. She was efficient
      and kind as could be." (Dr. Francis Marion Spencer)
