Henry Watson Turpin, the 5th Child

Jim and Janey Turpen’s fifth child was Henry Watson Turpin who was born about 1851 in Owen County, Indiana.  He came to Greene County, Iowa with his family and they lived in Jefferson.   Henry probably lived in Arkansas also while his family was there in the 1860s.
He married Emily Marie Bennett the daughter of Hiram Bennett and Ellen M. Applegate in Greene Co IA 2 Feb 1876.  Emily was born in 1857 in Missouri, Pike County, Arkansas.

They were in Washington Township in Greene County in 1880 and Henry farmed there.  By 1895 they had moved to Grant Township.  Sometime between 1895 and 1910, Henry and his wife moved to California. They were listed in the 1910 and 1920 censuses.

Fresno, California circa 1895

Henry died 8 December 1926 in Fowler, Fresno, California.  Emily appeared in the 1930 census living with her daughter Fay and son-in-law Clyde Van Horn.  Since she was not living with them in 1940, Emily apparently died before then. 

Their children were:

George Henry Turpin who was born in October 1876 in Greene County, Iowa.  He first married Sara Alverda Gliem and later Lulu Blance Kloss.   George died in 1856 in Greene County, Iowa.

William Q. Turpin who was born about 1878 in Greene County, Iowa.

Fanny J. Turpin who was born about 1880 in Greene County, Iowa.  Fanny, known as Fay, married Clyde Van Horn. 

A son whose name is unknown was born 27 February 1881 in Greene County, Iowa. 

Lydia Lucille Turpin who was born 29 Aug 1887 and died October 1968 in Fresno, California.

Walter Luke Turpin who was born in 1894 in Greene County, Iowa. Walter married Francis Erma Atchinson (1899-1978). They had a son Ronald W. Turpin.  Walter died  2 November 1976 in Forest Falls, San Bernadino, California and is buried in Hillside Memorial Park Cemetery beside his wife Francis.
