Helen Walls

March 8, 1903 - April 3, 1903

Helen Walls was an infant daughter of William and Elva (nee Turner) Walls.[i]  Elva Turner was a daughter of Albert M. and Mary J. (nee Davis) Turner; early pioneers of York Township.  In turn, Mary Turner was the daughter of Hugh and Elizabeth Davis; both of whom were also early settlers of York Township.  The 1870 Federal Census for Clark County shows a Hugh and Elizabeth living in York Township with four children including a daughter Mary. The 1880 Federal Census for Clark County shows an A. and Mary Turner living in York Township with their daughter Elva.  Similarly, the 1900 Federal Census lists an Albert and Mary Turner living in York with a daughter Elva and son Albert. Albert Turner, Sr is believed to have been one of the sons from Abel Turner's first marriage.  He would therefore have been a brother to Melvin Turner and a half-brother to Abie and Ben Turner; all of whom are buried at York Center Cemetery.  The 1893 plat map for York Township shows an A. Turner owning land in Section 21; the same location where Hubert & Ella Graves and Glenn & Elizabeth Lavey lived later.
