Marriage*circa 1740He married (-----) (-----) circa 1740. It is assumed that Elijah Laws Sr. did not marry a daughter of Joshua Sturgis and that Joshua Sturgis gave this Elijah Laws land in 1741 calling him son-in-law, which may have meant step-son as his mother Sarah Bevans married Joshua Sturgis after her husband William Laws died in 1729.

Marriage*circa 1706He married (dau of John & Tabitha) (2nd wife of Samuel I) Parker, daughter of John Parker Sr. and Tabitha Truitt, circa 1706 at Worcester Co, MD. She was evidently the daughter of John Paker (1669-1731) and his wife Tabitha Truitt (1672-1745) who died after giving birth to a son John Turner, as both of her parents named a grandson John Turner in their wills. Since her father John left his grandson John Turner 150 aces and did not name a guardian or trustee to look after the land until he came of age, he was evidently of age in 1730. The only John Turner of this area to have been over age 21 in 1730 would have been the son of Samuel Turner I.4

Anecdote* A yDNA test revealed that the Genetic Distance between Stephen Wayne Turner (b 1945), a proven descendant of Samuel Turner I (c.1672-1760) of Worcester Co, MD and Brendan Turner (b.c. 1985), a proven descendant of Edward Turner I (c.1670-1729) of Northampton Co, VA is 6 at 37 markers and 7 at 67 markers. This is consistent with them being descended from a shared ancestor who lived in the late 16th century or early 17th century before coming to the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Their yDNA is shown as "salmon." (yDNA analysis provided by Nigel Bond, a member of this "salmon" yDNA group.)10

Marriage*circa 1706Samuel (of John) Turner I married (dau of John & Tabitha) (2nd wife of Samuel I) Parker, daughter of John Parker Sr. and Tabitha Truitt, circa 1706 at Worcester Co, MD. She was evidently the daughter of John Paker (1669-1731) and his wife Tabitha Truitt (1672-1745) who died after giving birth to a son John Turner, as both of her parents named a grandson John Turner in their wills. Since her father John left his grandson John Turner 150 aces and did not name a guardian or trustee to look after the land until he came of age, he was evidently of age in 1730. The only John Turner of this area to have been over age 21 in 1730 would have been the son of Samuel Turner I.4
