After death of wife and son Claudie, Frank was overcome with grief and deserted his family, never heard from again. Martha Rebecca and Lizzie went to live with John Joseph Turner Family (1900 Census). Francis Turner's name, DOB are on the "Births" page of the Isaac Turner Family Bible on the line below that of Bettie Turner, but yellowed tape is obscuring the passage, making it unreadable in the RAS digital photograph. It is readable when viewed in person. http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=joereidscott&id=I11413 Father of Martha Rebecca and Lizzie and baby son Claudie. Grief stricken in losing his baby son and beloved wife Jenny, Franklin left home in desperation. His little girls were sent to live with relatives. Mattie, was sent to live with the Robisons and Lizzie with the Meltons, Jennie's parents. The girls each received Guatemalan coins from their father. Mildred, daughter of Mattie, had her mothers coins at her death. Do not know who has the coins at this time. Perhaps Ann Moore Guinn, daughter of Rosemary Moore Driver. Frank disappeared after the death of his wife.
