frontier state came across the plains to California in 1850. For a short time they
lived in the mining country, later in Contra Costa County, moving from there to
French Camp, San Joaquin County, where Mr. Turner farmed with considerable
success. It fell to his pleasurable lot to thrust the first plow into the soil about him
at the beginning of the grain-raising period. He eventually moved to Tulare County
where he continued agricultural pursuits until shortly before his death at the age of
ninety-one years, in 1891. His wife had passed away at French Camp. The ma-
ternal grandmother of Garrison Turner, Nancy Andrews, was one of twenty-five
children born to her mother, all of whom grew to years of maturity.
