I'm looking for information on a Wilber H. and Mae (STONE) TURNER. They had a daughter named Nellie Mae born Aug. 14,1892. On the birth record it listed her father as W.H. and he was a miner. Nellie moved to Ohio around 1907 but I understand her parents did not come with her. Perhaps they had passed away by then. She was 15 years old. There might have been 6 children between 1888 and 1900. Della & Stella (twins) ,Mamie,Nellie, Oscur & Otto (twins). I don't have much to go on and would be very greatful for and help I can get in this matter.
