GANNAWAY, TURNER posted by Debbie Richardson on Wednesday, November 15, 2000

Hi Dana, Just saw your posting on LN Turner, I have a couple of TURNER's in my tree, not much info, but thought I would ask you if you had a couple of Turner's married to GANNAWAY women? I am interested in Gannaway and Arnot surnames. Martha “Hallie” (GANNAWAY) TURNER married Walter Hill TURNER on March 22, 1901 at Wingate, Runnels County, Texas. Walter Hill TURNER was a Texas Ranger. The Texas Rangers originated in the 1820s as a volunteer corps to prevent Indian attacks and later became lawmen; their exploits were legendary. In 1835, the year before the Republic of Texas was born, the rangers became an official, full-time corps that was paid to defend the frontier. Mildred Ursula (GANNAWAY) TURNER married Joe TURNER at Wingate, Runnels County, Texas. Joe TURNER was a Texas Ranger raised in Hill County, Texas. Under John Coffee “Jack” HAYS, they fought in federal service during the Mexican War, winning national attention for their skill and bravery. With the gradual end of the Indian wars, the Rangers were reorganized in 1874, and became a statewide Texas law-enforcement agency responsible for suppressing feuds and riots, controlling cattle thefts, and capturing train robbers. When the United States annexed Texas in 1845 and protection of the frontier became a federal responsibility, the rangers then reverted to a volunteer, militia-type organization. Debbie
