I have recently been doing some research for my wife on her Turner family ancestry. Her grandfather told me that they have Cherokee ancestors, and he believes it is from the Turners in NC.
His grandmother was Neta Morgan m. Charlie Frank Craft
Neta's mother was Sallie Turner m. George Morgan
Sallie's parents were George Turner (b. ABT 1846 in NC) and Mary (Dew?) (b. 1850 in NC)
They show up in the 1880 census of Edgecombe Co., NC but their race is White?
If anyone has any info on Native American Turners in North Carolina or any of these names I would greatly appreciate the help, Thanks!
