Alcorn - Jefferson family connection

Surnames: Alcorn, Jefferson
I have posted the 1824 Will of William Turpin on ancestry.com.

This is the Will that is used for members of the family of Susannah Turpin Welch Alcorn to have a connection of sorts to the family of Thomas Jefferson of Virginia .

No where in this Will does William Turpin state he has a daughter named Susannah or even is the surname Alcorn mentioned.

If you are going to use his Will as a link to the Jefferson family it would have to mention a daughetr Susannah Alcorn, and it does not ...

I don't know where this wild story started... but its viral now ... almost all of the Alcorn trees have this grand connection to President Thomas Jefferson and the facts do not back this up ...
