1901 :: Death of Dr. Ira Turner



Dr. Ira Turner died in this city last Tuesday morning, and was buried at the Odd Fellows cemetery. Dr. Turner was a young graduate in medicines though he was not a practicing physician. He was born and raised in Milam county, and was possessed of those attributes of heart and impulse which won for him many warm personal friends. During the present month he would have attained the age of 26 years. The funeral was largely attended, and the services were conducted by Rev. T.G. Alfred, of the Baptist church. Deceased leaves a father and brother and other relatives to mourn his untimely taking away. The Messenger, Rockdale, Texas, Thursday, July 4, 1901
