Yes Henry and Alcinda Turnipseed were the grandparents of Orville Turnipseed who was my great grandfather.So you must be related to Orville's cousin Emma Jane? The Turnipseeds have a tendancy to go back and forth, first using middle names and then using first names. They can be a confusing bunch! Henry aka Johann Henrich, had a son Henry John, my great great grandfather, William's brother. I haven't heard about the book you mentioned, but I will check with my mom's cousins, they might have heard of it. I would like to share the information I have. We can continue through this message board or you can email me directly. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
