William Turpen, 2nd Child

I skipped over William Turpen, the second child of Jim and Janey Turpen.   He is discussed in a previous blog post:

William Turpen married Louise Anne (Anna) Turpin who was Newt Turpin's daughter and William's cousin.  

They had five children: 

James N. (b. 1870 IA), Mary (b. 1873 IA), Susan E. (b. @1875 IA), Katherine “Kate” (b. @ 1877 IA), and Carrie B. (b. 1880 IA). 

Anna died in 1880, perhaps in childbirth.  This left Will with the difficult task of raising small children.  He remarried 9 August 1887 to Mary A. Edwards.  Anna is buried in the Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Greene County, Iowa.  Will died in 1923.
