Mary Jane Turner, she married there in Edwards Co. to William Duncan. They stayed there and died there, and are buried at a cemetery in or close to Salem and Mt Carmel. I went there once but couldn't find their graves. I have their marriage record also their death records. But it is her brother that is my gr-grand father, McDonald Turner, he came to Pope Co. AR & died here in 1910. His wife or one of them and the one that is my line . she died in 1883 at White Co. ILL. I have his pension of the civil war, it tells all that, her name was Melvina Elizabeth Wear or he spelled it Were on his papers. I have not been able to find a marriage record on them, or her death record. McDonald married again in AR and had 3 more children.
