The parents of his mother, Elisabeth Turney Turner, lived to a very healthy old age. The old man chopped his stove wood and the old lady did her housework until their deaths within 6 weeks of each other. He was 115 years old and her 105. They were healthy and sound to their last day. They died in Doweltown, TN, but were born somewhere in North Carolina of Holland Black Dutch parents. The Turner plantation was not more than 1 1/2 miles up on a hill from Doweltown, TN. Governor Pete Turney of TN was my grandfather Ike's (Issac Turner) first cousin." Information provided by Sarah Starr.
Isaac Turner is listed as one of the first settlers of Abbott, TX. Abbott was a neat little village, ten miles south of Hillsboro, it was a creature of the "Katy" railroad, starting with it in 1881-82, and named in honor of the present congressman, Hon. Jo Abbott, of Hillsboro. It is beautifully situated on high land, in a good agricultural section of the county.
