Stories about Jane Johnson

The independent nature of Jane (Johnson) Turner
Shared by descendant Jane W.:
"Jane Johnson Turner, my father's mother, died before I was born. I have heard a few isolated stories about her. My father would drive to MS from Chicago to see her periodically. He said she could not read so his visit included reading papers and mail to her. He would also trap rodents in her house. According to my father, she could have moved in with one of her children. But she refused saying she wanted to be in her own home where she could do what she wanted to do. Around 1946, my father drove with my mother and two year old older sister to see Jane. Jane introduced my parents to her favorite grandchild. My mother was insulted because it wasn't her child."

Bertha Louise (Thigpen) King, a descendant of Jane Turner (her daughter Mary Turner married Walter C. Perryman) shared that Jane was a vey petite woman with straight black hair and brownish skin, "She was little and moved around very fast." Louise said Jane would make sausage links and send these wonderful sausages for them to eat in Laurel, MS.
