Samantha Lyons-Pauley Hello Jean -- It would appear that we are related! My name is Samantha Lyons-Pauley. My late father is Paul J Lyons. His mother was Mary Josephine Strupper; her mother was Maybelle Elise Ryan; her mother was Josephine Harvelia Turner, daughter of Charles Turner... Making Charles my great-great-great grandfather! I have always been told that Charles Turner was co-founder of Fort Worth... and somewhere along the line, I heard that "Grandpa Turner" was far more instrumental in Fort Worth's founding than any information I've seen online. I am in the very beginning stages of writing a book about Grandpa Turner. That is, I am just now in the process of sorting through the genealogical research about him, that has already been done and trying to find more information about him. The next stage will be an outline... I intend to write the book in a style known as "creative non-fiction," branching out (so-to-speak) from the story of his burying his gold under the oak tree. All of this being said, I would love to hear back from you, and find out if you have any details about Charles Turner that I do not have. I hope to hear from you soon!
