I don't know. I have not researched my Turner line much. My earliest Turner ancestor is John Turner, Sr, who was born a bout 1620 in England. I descend from one of his nine know children, Isaac (1654-1694), who married Rebecca Crafts, born 1668. I have
information on only four generations (including John Sr.) The last birth was about 1730 in

If you provide information on your earliest Turner ancestor I may be able to help extend your search.
