Judge of Probate

Need to do some checking, Nancy E. turner is listed in 1880 census, Etowah County, District 68 Township 12 Family #72 0n Page 8 Date 12 June 1880 in the family of Levi Turner Age 66 Wife Elizabeth age 61 sister Margaret age 29 Both dau. single. This must be the correct Nancy since latter when Daniel Dies you find Levi Turner signing the Probate of Daniel's Will to his widow Nancy. Only problem is in the difference in MI; L. vs E. and the birth dates. I have her born in 1849 while this census would have her born in 1854. Check the DoB in the cementary listings. Visit the cemetary on the Attalla to Birmingham Highway to read the head stone.

Levi could be some relative ou\ther than her Father. According to her Civil War pension application her Father died in the Civil War.

I just did a quick scan of the Turner's for you and didn't see Nancy. I'm going to list briefly the one's for cemetery #92 here, but will scan the pages (about three in all) of all the Turners. I will have to do that either some evening this week or Sunday for sure. Something happened at work this past weekend and I got left in charge, permanently. I'm having to work six days this week to cover the office.

This is the correct age for Daniel's second wife, but everything else is slightly off. Spelling of last name, and first name. She was born in Georgia and also her parents. Now see if I can find her and her brother in georgia before the civil war at home with Parents. In 1860 she would be 11 and brother 8. Both should be home.

Good Morning Earlene: It took a while, but I am ready to say for sure that Daniel's second wife, Nancy Louise Turner is not buried at Moodys even though she has her name on the head stone. It took me a while but here is the rest of the story. In 1860 at age 11, she was living with her parents John and Lydiann Turner in the part of St Clair County that would become Etowah County after the Civil War. That would be across Tumblin Gap from Warrior Valley. She is not shown with any siblings and the listing is the last family on the last page of that section of the census. But as I found latter there were sibblings. Either the enumerator was lazy and did not want to start another page for the last few of the last family or it was lost by the many other people that handle that part of the census. By 1870 she is living in another part of what appears to be Greasy Cove which is now in Etowah County. She is without her father who had died during the Civil War, but she was living with her mother and sibblings, several that should have appeared on the 1860 census. Elizabeth Ann Holden, the first wife of Daniel Nix, died on 8 June 1893 and Daniel married Nancy on 14 May 1895. He would have been about 68 and she was 46. It would appear that he felt that he needed a nurse for his final years. (Check math, he was 22 years older than she was.) Daniel lived for another 14 years and died 3 Jan 1912. After studying the monument at Moodys it appears that Daniel purchased it and had it installed before he died. He had his name, Elizabeth Ann and their single daughter Martha Frances cut on the stone. Martha Frances died 8 June 1893 , after her mother but before her father. Daniel also left a place for his second wife and had her name cut on the stone, but the DoD was never cut. After Daniel died Nancy is found living in Greasy Cove, Etowah County with her younger brother L.B. Turner on the 1920 census. She is 71 and her brother is 68. Several years ago Earlene sent me some pages from the Etowah County Alabama Cemeteries that she had copied. In the Alpha Order listing there is a record for Nix, N. L. (Mrs), DoB 4-1-1848, DoD 6-8- 1926. Everything matches my listing for Nancy except I have the year of death as 1928, I will check that source. The cemetery is #92 which is Shiloh United Baptist Cemetery, Attalla, Etowah County, Alabama. The directions given are: Highway #11 south of Attalla, Alabama, 5 miles SW of Attalla on Highway 11. It seems reasonable that the Turner family would bury their member in their own cemetery. It had been 14, (or 16 years since her husband had died), and she had spent that time living with Turner family members. The Cemetery at Shiloh was not much more distant than Moodys and there was no mountain to cross. It would be nice to have a picture of her stone at Shiloh, if there is one, to round out this story.
