Blacksmith shop, closest building on the left.

Photo history: Mr. A. E. Turner Jr. gave a copy of the original

photograph to Vera Garrett Justice (wife of Aubrey Justice); then (my)

Aunt Vera gave a copy of the picture to Frances Justice Warren. Finally

Aunt Frances gave a copy of the photo to my mother, Martha Justice

Abernathy; and she printed this copy for me.

Thanks go out to everyone who has passed on this bit of Calcis history!

Anyone have more historical/old photographs of Calcis?

I would love to see them!

One thing that is known is that at least two descendants of Bartholemew Turner you mention have done the Y-DNA test and match and also match a a select group of Turners that are apparently all related to a James Turner born in VA who went through Union Co. SC area before and during the Revolution then just after the revolution he went to GA–first in the area of Green Co. which became Hancock Co. Later of course migrating to other counties in GA.

Funeral services for Mrs. Stella Turner, a former resident of Columbiana and the wife of E.A. (Uncle Lige) Turner, were held at the Columbiana cemetery Tuesday afternoon. The service was conducted by Rev. T.K. Roberts with Rev. H.M. Hurst assisting in the service.

Mrs Turner died at the family home in Birmingham after an illness of three weeks. She suffered an attack of flue [sic.], from which she seemed to have recovered to be followed by a second attack that rendered her unconscious for several days before her death. She was 77 years old.
