I have a picture that has been passed down through the family. It is supposed to be a picture of my 4x great grandfather and grandmother, Starling and Sophia CARVER TURNER. They came to what is now Sangamon Co., then Fulton Co. and Buckheart Twp. and I believe Banner Twp., also. The picture is a professional one taken at Frank Studio in Canton, Ill. in 1908. My 2x great grandfather, Samuel Nelson Rockhold wrote on the back of the picture that it was his grandfather and grandmother Turner at 88 and 82 years old. But Starling Turner was born 22 Sept. 1776 so if it was him in the picture, he would be about 132 years old! Samuel grew up near his grandparents so it's difficult to understand how he could be mistaken about his own grandparents. I would appreciate very much if someone has a picture of Starling and Sophia Turner, that they would contact me and we can compare pics. It would need to be a picture of them when they were old. Thanks in advance! (posted January 22, 2006)
