   Riley Lane Turner, born 12 July 1840 in Mississippi, is thought to be the eldest child of Samuel W. and Susan (unknown maiden name) Turner.  Historical records for Riley are conflicted (as detailed further below), but it appears Riley was married to Mary (unknown maiden name) in 1860.  In the 1860 census, he is enumerated as "Lane" (age 19) and he and Mary (age 18) reside in Calhoun Co., Mississippi.  Also in the 1860 census it is noted that his parents and younger siblings are in a nearby household.  (In the 1850 census, Riley is seen as a child in this household, which is then in Yalobusha Co., Mississippi; on 6 June 1852 a portion of Yalobusha County became Calhoun Co.).  
    An 1870 census enumeration for Riley has not been found, but in 1880 Riley and Mary are seen residing in the Fifth District of Yalobusha Co.  Presumably they moved west from Calhoun Co. back into Yalobusha Co.  A few items are of interest from the 1880 census.  First, it appears that Riley and Mary have a daughter, Annie E., who was born ca. 1872.  From a census form entry, it appears that Annie may be adopted.  Of further interest is the fact that Riley's son, Robert Lee Turner, who would be around 9 years old at this time, is not found.  Matters are further confused by the fact that another child of Riley's, Estelle, should have been present in the 1880 census, but is not. Furthermore, it is known that Estelle's mother was not Mary, to whom Riley is shown married to in the 1880 census, but Margaret Loyd.  In the 1880 census Margaret Loyd appears a few households away from Riley and Mary.  So the question is--was Estelle an illegitimate child of Riley's?  Where are Riley's children Robert Lee and Estelle for the 1880 census?  One might conclude this could be the wrong Riley Turner, but several other factors inidicate this is the correct Riley Turner in the 1880 census.
    A 1900 census enumeration for Riley has yet to be found, and the next documented evidence of Riley is a 1906 land patent for 80 acres in Collins Township, Drew Co., Arkansas.  In the 1910 census Riley is seen to be married to Margaret Loyd Turner, and though they are living by themselves, it is shown that she has had two children.
   Riley died 11 May 1926, outliving Margaret by ten years.  He is buried in the New Troy Cemetery, Ashley Co., Arkansas.

Margaret E. LLOYD [Parents] [scrapbook] 1, 2 was born 2, 3 on 3 Oct 1855 in Duck Hill, Montgomery Co., Mississippi. She died on 22 Apr 1916 in Arkansas. She was buried 4 in New Troy Cemetery, Drew Co., Arkansas. Margaret married 5 Riley Lane TURNER after 1880.

Margaret's birth year is given as 1866 on her headstone--however it is believed that 1855 is the correct year.  From the 1880 census Margaret is seen as being 25 years old, and in the 1920 census she is 55 years old.
