Searching for info on Smith Turnpaugh (Turnpaw) (Turnpau). He married Mariah Naylor 7 Apr 1840, Jackson County, IN. Looking for info on his death around 1846--obit, cemetery, death cert. His son James N Turnpaugh born 6 March 1844, Jackson County, IN. birth cert, any info of his years there.
We believe Smith Turnpaugh was the son of Mathias Turnpaugh (Turnpaw)(Dornbach) and Mary Smith from OH. Smith shows as Smith Turnpear on 1840 US census. Mathias shows as Turnpson on the 1840 US census. He showed up as Mathias Turnpau in Nettle Creek, Randolph Co., IN on the 1850 census. Help is much appreciated!
