Notes
a. Note:   From: Wanda Beitz <beitzwan@hotmail.com> (Nov. 2007) Jacob Cooke married Damaris Hopkins Elizabeth Cooke married John Doty Elizabeth Doty married Joshua Morse Elizabeth Morse married Japhet Turner Joseph Turner married Mercy French Joshua Turner married Lydia Drury Lydia Turner married Allen Thomson or Thompson Joshua Thomson married Nancy McMillen Alden Thomson married Nellie Rich Lula Thomson married Claude Crowley Ray Crowley married Margaret Aldred Wanda Crowley married Dennis Beitz I am just beginning my application so will probably have questions as I go along. My family spells our last name Thomson but have found it spelled Thompson in most old documents. Who is your relative on the Turner side? What I know about Joseph Turner is that he was killed in the French Indian Wars. He had married Mercy French and their only child was Joshua Turner. For some reason, Mercy was unable to raise her son and ask her brother, Asa, to raise him. I think he was only about 6 years old when he went to live with Asa French. "Asa was born in Berkley, Mass., Oct. 28, 1740, the son of John and March French. He served in the French and Indian War as a private, in Capt. Benjamin Pratt's Co., which was raised in Middleboro and which was engaged in the campaign in and about Fort Henry in the summer of 1757. He was then 17 years of age. About the year 1764, at his sister's request, he took his nephew, Joshua Turner, to bring up till the latter should be of age...... When Captain Crawford of Oakham called for soldiers after the Lexington alarm at the end of April 1775, Asa French equipped and sent his nephew Joshua Turner, in his own place. " Source: John French, Jr. of Taunton, Berkley, Middleboro, and Oakham, Massachusetts, and his Descendants by Henry B. Wright This book has a lot of info about the French family. I have a lot of names on the Turner family, but it came off the internet so I don't have sources.
