(Emiline) KNOX [1816-1911]
Joseph Turner, possibly the s/o an English Army officer; was born c.1797 in Nottinghamshire, England and immigrated to the United States about 1825; it was reported that he was in New York State when he met Emily KNOX; married Emily on 15 Mar., 1834 and arrived in Michigan Territory ( 2 years prior to statehood) in 1835 and prior to their first born, George; settled at Clinton in Lenawee (formerly Branch Co.) County; involved with mercantile and grist mill; operated a gristmill on the Rouge River, Wayne County in 1837; moved to Detroit in 1846 or 1847 and operated a dry goods and grocery store; June of 1848 bought a grist mill and store at Stoney Creek, , Avon Tp. , Oakland Co., Michigan and they moved in July, 1848; on 21 Nov., 1848 Joseph died leaving his wife, 6 children and one child unborn.
* may have operated the grist mill on the river Raisin
* the Rouge River location was .....on the North Branch of The Rouge River between the grist mill known as Rufus Wells and the grist mill occupied by said Turner to a post on land between Wells and Dumois...thence to the bank of the river;
* the Detroit store location was at ...the west half of Lot 28, Section 9 on Madison Avenue. in Detroitland (Detroit);
* the Stoney Creek locations were Lots 12, 13 & 35 of Stoney Creek (sometimes spelt Stony Creek); a member and Treasurer (1847-1848) of the Detroit Masonic Lodge; probable burial place is at the Stoney Creek Cemetery, Avon Tp. , Oakland Co., Michigan. (grave not found)

Freeto who had known her since 1834; on one of her affidavits when was asked to supply disinterested individuals who knew of her personal affairs, Emily stated that "....she was not in the habit of disclosing personal information to disinterested persons."

his birth date and possible link to the printing business, nothing ties this

maybe another Edwin who is said to he born in Lower Canada (Ontario) in the
same year and he also shows up as a Printer, in Michigan and moving to

Mary A. CONNOLLY
William, s/o Joseph Turner & Emily Knox; born Wayne County; said to have moved to South Bend, Indiana.
notes: May have been the William Turner involved with the Turner Oil Filter Co., South Bend, Ind. and of Niles, MI. and if so he married a May Ann Connelly and had one unmarried daughter, Grace.
