GENERATION 5

The following is a summary what is known about Asa Turner based on the research of Alma C Turner :

05. Asa Turner, Revolutionary War soldier and Baptist minister, Asa was born on June 14, 1765 in Watertown, Connecticut, son of Jedediah Turner and Rachel Thompson. His father's ancesters were in Connecticut since at least 1633.   Asa is the great-great grandson of Edward Turner and Mary Sanford.

In 1778 when he was 13, the Revolutionary War was going on and he enlisted. He served several posts between 1778-1782.

After he served in the war he met Isabel Ketchum and married her on February 14, 1788.  Isabel was born on October 9, 1769 in Lansingburg, NY.  In 1787, the couple was in the village of Franklin, NY where son Gideon was born. The following year he was sent to Upper Canada to establish the Baptist church there. While in Canada, son Benajmin was born in 1793 and daughter Pamelia in 1805 while in Hastings County, Ontario. He was called back to the US by 1810 and was located in the area of Scipio/ Pleasant Valley NY where he was also a Baptist minister.  By 1847 he was living with daughter Louisa Jones in Stockton, Chautauqua Co., NY. He died on November 27, 1847 and was buried in Stockton, Chautauqua Co., NY.

To date, no will has been found for Asa. Records from around the time Asa was in Upper Canada have been burned so it is hard to obtain information from this timeframe. One of his granddaughters was Josephine B. Mix (nee Dexter), a 19th Woman Physician of the Medical College of New York City. Asa had a brother, William Turner who was also from Chautauqa Co.

Asa died on November 27, 1847 in Stockton, NY.  Isabel died on March 23, 1842 in Stockton, NY.  Asa has a plaque at Turner's Corner's ie Old Baptist Road and 8th Concession, at the Baptist Church, Sidney Township, Hastings Co. He had land just a few settlements (farms) away. The plaque was placed by the Gov't of Ontario commorating his work in founding many Baptist Churches in Upper Canada. Alma's gr gr gr Grandfather , Benjamin Turner, owned the land and stone house and Turner School, just kitty corner to the Plaque and Church. Benjamin built that house.  Click here to see a picture of Turner's Corner and here to see the plaque.

Turner Chest of Drawers
Asa Turner crafted a child's chest of drawers for his granddaughter Mary Isabel (Jones) Whiting.  This chest has been handed down through many generations and is currently owned by Rupert Charles Loucks.

Click here to see a photo of the restored chest.

In addition to the chest Rupert has compiled an extensive 45 page inventory document that details the history of the chest as well as an in-depth study of Asa and his family.

Rupert can be contacted at 111 N. Earl Street, Shippensburg, PA 17257 or cloucks@pa.net
