One thought on “Phillip Walston & Charity Moore”

  1. Was David Turner and James Turner brothers and if so how are they related to Winefred (Turner) Walston and Mary Turner .
    Also who ? if you know were Thomas Sutton’s children.
    Mary Turner is the wife of Abraham Mullen and some say she also married William Turner .
    So who is William related to ?………………………………………..
