South Carolina Will Book VV 1776-1784 p. 290

JOHN TURNER, SR., Granville County. Sons: James, John, William, Jacob, Abraham, Enoch, part of tract purchased of John Neilson next land where I now live to Pickney's line on W side creek from Little Lake; Noel, land on NE tract purchased of Pickney; Charles, land purchased of John "Nelson." Daus: Lidda Griffin, Winna and Cloey. Mentions: Island I have already sold; sons to inherit land at 19 years.

Exors: Ezekiel Williams, James

Wilson. Witness: Lake Mizell; Michael Wallis, his mark; John Spar, his mark.

Dated 12 Oct. 1775 Proven -- no date Recorded -- no date.

(Part of will in original book destroyed.)

Note: Apparently the mother had already died since she was not mentioned in the will. Noel was 11 in 1775 at the time of the will. When he later applied for a pension he stated that he was an orphan. Since the will says the sons were to inherit land at 19 years & none were made the executors, it indicates that they were all young. Noel named children Cloey, Enoch, William, John, Charles - names of his brothers & sisters.
