Turner’s Tidbits


This week’s photo is of Emmett Conrad, Max Collins, and Ira Conrad.

Emmett and Ira were  brothers and their parents were: Columbus and Julia Lawrence Conrad. Julia’s parents were: Anderson and Dianna Lantz Lawrence. Julia was one of eight children; she had a brother Adam Harness Lawrence. Adam’s daughter was Marie Lawrence who was married to Max Collins. Thus, Emmett and Ira were first cousins to Marie; who was married to Max Collins.  The Conrad’s lived just inside the Tucker County line at the bottom of the Red Creek Hill before crossing into Randolph County.
