Turpin cousin Dennis Bell has been researching descendants of Robert Newton Turpin. There are SO many! It’s a huge endeavor. After I published the 1940 Census findings for Turpins in Kirkwood Precinct, Dennis followed up on young Doris Turpin who was single and working as a housekeeper there at the time.
It’s such a great time to be a genealogist! There are so many online resources and one of those is Find-a-Grave. Find-a-Grave literally can trim miles off your research. In this case, Dennis found the burial of Doris Turpin’s husband Dave McClintock in Bassett (Nebraska) Memorial Park Cemetery. You don't always find this, but this time Dennis found David's obituary was attached. Thanks to Dennis for the research and thanks to the volunteer who added the information to the Find-a-Grave entry.
