  Mrs. TRurner was born in Kentucky 81 years ago.  Her father died when she was sixteen years old, and she went to live with her uncle, James Hogan, during the Civil War.  She and other girls there worked hard, making uniforms for the soldiers of Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, who were quartered in a cave on the Hogan farm.
  When Forrest and the new recruits rode south ito join the Confederat forces, the federals took possession of the farm, and immediately began to grill Mr. Hogan as to the where abouts of the Forrest command.  They strung him up to a tree, choked him into unconsciousness twice, and the only answer they ever got was "I do not know where General Forrest is., and if I knew, I would not tell you."
  In 1866, Mrs. Turner married Ben Blewett Turner, nephew and namesake of Ben T. Blewett founder of Bethel College, Russellville, Ky.  One son Eugene Frederick Turner, who survives her, was born to this union.

  Mrs. Turner's death came after she had been confined in her bed for sever and a helf years as a result of a broken hip sustained when she fell.  Her invalidism retrained herf from participating in Nashville affairs in her later life. and she had a host of friends, all of whom are cognizant of her cheerfulness and fortitude in bearing the injury.
