Searching for any information on my grandmother's family. She was born
Frances TURNER in Pinckneyville in 1887. Her mother was Rebecca SWALLOWS
TURNER who died in 1928. Her father's first name may have been William
or Thomas, but we do know that he was a coal miner who was involved in a
lawsuit over his "undermining" some one else's land. He died when his
family was still quite young.
Frances siblings included John, Mae, Maud and Leslie. Another sister,
Ernestine married Henry HEISLER and remained in Pinckneyville
Any help appreciated.
