GOOD MAN
JOHN M. TURNER, KNOWN THRU OUT THE COUNTY PASSESS AWAY
HE WAS SICK ABOUT TWELVE WEEKS AND DIED SUNDAY NIGHT
WAS PROMINENTLY CONNECTED WITH UNION CITYbS BUSINESS GROWTH
ONE OF THE FOUNDERS OF THE UNION LOAN & TRUST CO., OF WHICH HE WAS PRESIDENT

A death occurred at South Salem Sunday night at 10 o'clock, the news of which, when it became generally known about town, proved a great shock to our citizens.  For some reason it did not become known that he had died, to many in this city until this morning.  Mr. Turner had been sick for twelve weeks, and Sunday those about him knew that the end was nearing, and at 10 o'clock at night surrounded by his relatives, he passed to that Great Unknown realm whence none return.  His age was 83 years, 5 months and 25 days.  

John M. Turner was the eldest son of William and Margaret (Monks) Turner, who was born in White River township, Randolph County, Indiana, Sept. 14, 1840.  His father was born in Virginia in 1860 [error in date in original] and with his widowed mother came to Randolph County in 1833 where he grew to manhood married and reared eleven children, ten of whom survive.  

John M. Turner's boyhood days were spent on the home farm and his education was obtained in the public schools.  When John M. was 10 years of age his father entered a new farm in section 15, Wayne township, with few improvements, and here John went to work manfully to help clear and improve the same.  

In August 1861, like a true patriot should, he answered his country's call and enlisted in the 84th Indiana Volunteer Infantry.  He fought in the army of the Cumberland and served 11 months when, on account of disability he was discharged and returned home.  He lived with his father until he was 24 years of age, and then went to farming for himself.  He entered part of his present farm land and cut the fields himself right out of the green, starting with 22 acres, and by persevering industry has made additions until he now had a total of over 1,000 acres of good land under high state of cultivation in Wayne and Greensfork townships.  

Mr. Turner raised and fed hogs quite extensively until 1878 and since then has paid much attention to both hogs and cattle, and had a much better grade of stock than the average farmer.  The land he purchased at first was obtained at very reasonable price, but that which was later purchased came at a higher price.  

In politics Mr. Turner was a republican, proudly claiming the distinction of having cast his first vote for Abraham Lincoln, for his second term.  He did his full share of party work, attending both county and state conventions.  He served one term as trustee of Wayne Township in 1867.  In 1886 he was elected Randolph County Treasurer and filed the position with perfect satisfaction.  He has for years been an active member of the Christian Church.  On June 4, 1865, he was married to Mary J., daughter of John Hartman of Wayne township.  To this union were born three daughters and one son.  Their names are Effie, wife of John Shockney; Minnie A., deceased wife of John Morris; Irene, wife of Ernest Thornburg, Loftus Orville, a farmer, married to Mollie Smith.  The children all live in Wayne township.  Mr. Turner's wife died in 1878, and in 1881 he was married to Nannie, daughter of Silas Hinshaw, of Washington township.  To this last union have been born three daughters and two sons, Mary J., Ada G., John, Goldie and Lester.  

John Turner was one of the best men that ever was reared in Randolph County.  Though he began life as a farmer, he was a man who improved every opportunity to improve his mind, especially along the lines of business and commerce so that there was not a better posted man in this section.  He was one of the founders of our splendid Union Loan and Trust Co. bank, of which he was the president for several years, and his honest methods and great experience in money matters did much to help establish this sterling institution as one of our soundest and at the same time most progressive banking institutions.  

When he asked to be relieved from the responsible position of president he retained his large holdings in the bank and remained on the director's board, a position he held at the time of his death.  

He was a man among men and he will be long remembered as a good husband and father, a real christian, a true friend and a man who retained a genial disposition, and his pleasant countenance will be missed from his large circle of friends and his place can never be filled.  The Times joins the host of friends in extending sincere sympathy to the bereaved relatives.  The funeral announcement will be found elsewhere in The Times.
