Obituary of Turner Bynum, Corinth, Mississippi.

Turner Bynum was a native of Chatham County, N. C., where he was born in 1841. The family removed to Mississippi in 1852, and his home was in that State from boyhood. His death occurred in Corinth on July 27, 1916.

There were seven Bynum brothers in the Confederate army. Thomas, the oldest, served in a Texas regiment. With five brothers, William, Mark, George, Joseph, and Nat, Turner Bynum enlisted in April, 1861, in the 2d Mississippi Infantry. He served in the Army of Northern Virginia from the first battle of Manassas to Gettysburg, where he was captured and spent the rest of the war in prison at Fort Delaware. Only two of these brothers now survive-George W. Bynum, of Corinth, in his seventy-eighth year, and Mark W. Bynum, who is nearing the eighty-second milepost.

Turner Bynum was a man of integrity and honesty of purpose, a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, charitable and liberal to the poor. He was never married.
