This page is dedicated to our ancestors from the Turner County Area who served their country.   "Area" includes the counties that surround Turner.  Turner County is a young county, being created in 1906 from portions of Wilcox, Irwin, Dooly, and Worth counties.  Any ancestor from these counties can be included here.

If you would like to submit your ancestor's information, just click here: Turner County Veteran or email me at with "Turner County Veteran" in the subject line.

The veterans will be listed alphabetically and placed here: Turner County Area Veterans.
