William TURNER brought his wife Mary T. SINNETT to ralls county -- Madisonville / Center area around the year 1858. I have found that his mother Mrs. Ezekiel (Edmonica - Edmonia) TURNER remarried in Va in 1837. She and her new husband came to Ralls County - Madisonville also. She is buried in the Madisonville Cemetery. Last name was CHITTUM. I would like to find any and all information on the CHITTUM names so that I may place the half/brothers and sisters for my James in the tree.
Also, I was to this cemetery in July and could not get in or see more than a shadow of two stones. It really needs tender loving care. If a crew of people can be organized, I would be willing to find time to drive in from IL again to help clear this forest where you cannot get in until after a couple of good frosts. If I lived in Center, I would help organize, but I am long distant. Anyone to take the challenge? let me know the dates and I will get there to help. It is sad that this cemetery is such a forest.
