    • John, his wife Maria, and children moved in 1832 to Crawford
      County, Pennsylvania. John was one of founders of Spring &
      Cussawago Baptist Church. In 1843 the family settled near
      Belvidere, Boone, Illinois, and in 1846-1850 in Florence Twp.,
      Stephenson Co., Illinois. The family moved to Illinois in two
      covered wagons, carrying simple household furniture, a trunk
      full of victuals, the parents and 8 children. John
      Turrneaure's big house of quarried limestone, built in 1855 in
      Florence Twp. is still standing. When Lincoln and Douglas held
      their debate in Freeport, Illinois, John, who had the finest
      carriage in the area, drove Lincoln from the railroad station
      to the debate site. Some 20 or 25 years later the Lincoln
      carriage was destroyed when the barn of Maria and John's son
      Albert burned in Dickinson County Iowa. In 1869 John and
      Maria, with their two unmarried children George and Peter and a
      married son, Harrison, moved to Clinton, Wisconsin
