My little corner of the world

I have located marriage records for Joel and Henry Turner.

Groom: Joel Turner
Bride: Mourning S Davis
Bond_Date: 04 Jan 1843
County: Nash
Bondsman: Willie Made his Mark Turn [probably Turner-see below]
Witness: S Brown (Clerk)

Groom: Henry Turner
Bride: Amandy E Daughtridge
Bond_Date: 21 Jun 1849
County: Nash
Bondsman: J L Made his Mark Boon
Witness: J W Bryant

Circumstantial evidence is mounting that not only were Warren and Orren brothers, but Joel was as well. Linking in my Josiah is a last step.

And, I have likely located Shanny who lived next door to Joel in 1850.

Groom: William Turner
Bride: Shanney Joiner
Bond_Date: 31 Mar 1825
County: Nash
Bondsman: Saml W W Vick

Since Shanney was born about 1800 and married in 1825, if William Turner was the father of the boys, she was probably the second wife. The only detractor from that is that in 1840, I find a family that might match William Turner with only children born since 1825.

Knowing my luck though, they will all turn out to only be distant cousins.
