“I did not know Mrs. Turner but I am conducting research on her family and came upon this site quite by accident. Her grandfather was a freedman named Ransom Williams who homesteaded a small farm in Travis County about 1871. Her father William was also a farmer. I am trying to get in touch with any living descendants to try and write the most complete history I can about this family and their efforts to build a life after slavery. Thank you. ” - Terri Myers
