Obituary of James Daniel Turner, Hillsboro, Texas.

To Comrade James D. Turner, a member of Hill County Camp, No. 166, U. C. V., the final summons came on the 21st of February, 1916, at his home, in the city of Hillsboro, Tex. He was born in Walker County, Ala., June 24, 1843, and enlisted as a member of Company E, 20th Alabama Volunteer Infantry, Army of Tennessee, serving until the close of the war. In January, 1868, he was married to Miss Sallie Wood. Removing to Texas in 1883, they first settled in Kaufman County, but in 1894 went to Hill County, which had since been their home. His wife and seven children-four sons and three daughters-survive him, as as four sisters and four brothers. He was the eldest of twelve children.

As a soldier of Christ and a soldier of his country he was clad with the armor of readiness, and when the tattoo sounded his light went out on the instant.

[From tribute by Hill County Camp, U. C. V., in its memorial resolutions in honor of this comrade and brother. W. L. McKee, Tam Brooks, J. W. Morrsion, Committee.]
