Surnames: Turnage, Garner, Breedlove, Parker, White, Calhoun, Gaines, Travis, Gulley, Williams.
I just read your reply to my message, It looks like I am about 2 months late, SORRY!! Elijah G. Garner was my 4th Great Grandmother, MAry E. Garner's, Brother. Mary married James L. Turnage about 1827 in Georgia. I noticed that Elijah married a Turnage also and wasnt sure if Missouri and James were siblings, Do you have any idea??? I think James fathers name was Henry, but that is just speculation at this point, no proof yet. I would love to find out as much as I can about both the Garner and Turnage lines. If you have any info, let me know. Thanks in advance. Jeana
