Notes for Richard Turner:
[Turner.FTW]

Shadrach's father, John Turner (1696-1738) was the son of John Turner (1671-1723) of PG MD and Sarah Bevens. The 1671
John was the son of John Turner (1653 England- 1705 MD) and Margaret. The John Turner of 1653 was born in England to
William Turner, who bought the family to Calvert MD. Very confusing with all these gentleman with the name of John. My
grandmother was the only parent in the 11 generations I have followed who did not name a child John.

Notes for Jonathan Prather:
[Prather.FTW]

Johnathan sold land to the government. The property is now Washington, D.C.

From Gary Benton Prather (entered 08/10/95):
"Jonathan Was born in Virginia and later moved to Maryland (circa 1652/1658). His name is recorded in several documents and we find it spelled several different ways. As example, he assigned land he owned, which stated it was land owned by Jonathan Prether, but when he signed the docuemnt he signed "Jonathan Prater". He is also recorded in other such documents as "Prater", "Prator", "Prether", "Praither" and "Prather". Such was the level of education in those days; most people "sounded out" the spelling, and then spelled that way. We find the names "Prater" and "Prather" the mostcommonly used in documents concerning Jonathan.
When Jonathan died, his wife remarried to John Smith, a very wealthy planter. He was very good to Jonathan'schildren and, when he died, he willed them a plantation he called "Orphans' Gift", which was located near the city of St. Mary in Maryland. John Smith's Willwas proved October 13, 1707. Jane Prather Smith's Will was proved December 7, 1713.
We thought for years that "Jane" was a Goldsmith, daughter of George Goldsmith, but now we know she was Lyle Jane McKay. She was RAISED by the Goldsmiths.
Jonathan Prather's coat of arms was registered with the College of Heraldry and has proven to be the continuing and long established "Prater Family", whose ancestrial estates were located on Eaton Water Estates, including Latton Manor and Inglesham Manor, which are located along the headwaters of the Thames River, north of Swindon, Wiltshire, England. Jonathan used the Prater coat of arms on some of his documents. Several other documents were also found.
Jonathan Prather was transported by water from Virginia up Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River to Swan Creek, then to Calvert County, Maryland (now Prince George County) with four men and one other woman; Alexander Forcarson, Robert MacKay and wife, William Woodrose, William Mill and William Jones. They traveled in a smallvessel owned by young George Reed of Calvert County, Maryland. We suspect thatthe "other woman" was Lyle Jane Mackay, sister of Robert Mackay.
