  • Notes 
    • Excerpt from Pritchard Kin regarding tombstones:
      "On 23 August 2004, Jo and I tried to visit Thomas and Mourning Turlington's graves. We were accompanied by Mr. Newman Smith and later joined by Tad Jackson. Both guides grew up nearby and had visited the cemetery many times in their youth. Mr. Smith said he was eighty-three. Tad said he was seventy-three. Tad Jackson said he last visited the cemetery about thirty to forty years ago. Our mother described the cemetery location in her book (Tombstone Inscriptions, p. 51).

      Alas, the cemetery has been obliterated. The location is now an irrigated cornfield. It is not far from a tributary to Limestone Creek. (Strick Newsom-February 2005)."

      Will:
      Dated Dec. 6,1856. No probate date. He bequeathed to his wife Mourning" with whom I have lived 40 years 340 acres of land where I reside for her life, then to Henery T. Turlington if he die without issue to my daughter Elizabeth Ann Smith and my daughter Mourning Pritchard and her children... To my son Henry T. Turlington 350 acres on Little Onoopie where he now resides adjacent G.R. Taylor and Phillip Clarke and others... To my daughter Mourning... free from disposition of her former husband James Pritchard slaves and 338 acres of land known as the Hicks place adjacent Thomas Smith, John Smith and others, on Limestone Creek." Henry T. Turlington Trustee for Mourning and Children. Executors: wife Mourning and son Henry T. Turlington. Witnesses: Drury W. Harrison, Benjamin G. Smith, Andrew E. Tarver,Henry A. Josey.
