Trying desparately to find and trace Frederick William Turner b1872 probably in Somerset, Bristol or Devon, England. He was a marine engineer last known in Pill, NW Somerset in about 1908 and was believed to have gone to USA to work in the oil industry. Does anyone know of him or descendents in USA. Please email me at andsombris@gmail.com

I have a Frederick Willaimson Turner but he was born 16 Jan 1818 Carroll Co. TN. and died 1906 Carroll Co. TN.
The exact same names but so far apart.

I don't think I know anything of this family except there
was a Tom Turner, son Fred Turner, who lived in San Antonio,
Texas. He was very big in the oil industry. I felt that
this was a coincidence, or might lead somewhere in your
search. He and his son have passed away, but my husbands
uncle was very close friends with him, and I might be able
to ask a few questions. I don't know if I could get any
information though that would help you. Good luck with your
search.

Ta, but no ! Fred William Turner was b 1872 in West of England. In 1908 he did a runner from Pill, just W of Bristol, England, leaving behind wife + 2 dtrs aged 6 and 4. Last believed to have been spotted on a ship headed to Texas - but that may have been hearsay. A person of this name and age did pass through Ellis Island in 1912 and a person of this name and age died in Browns, Ohio c1968. He was my gt gndfather as I am grandson of the 4 year old and I am in Nailsea, 6 miles SW of Bristol, England

Was this Fred son of Tom, or did you mean Tom Turner son of Fred ?

Tom was the father. Fred was the son. I was just trying
to help with whatever I knew, but I have no idea about
a connection.
The Tom Turner I knew was born in approx. 1920, have no
idea of his history. His son, Fred, died in the 1990's.
As I said they were involved in the oil industry. I could
only ask.
Sorry not to be of more help. Just thought the profession
was a coincidence.

Ta anyway - this guy is the most ellusive ... possibly even highly dodgy - and his father Stephen for that matter !
