I am descendant from pioneers who came to California:1854 three families, 1856 one , and 1862 one family. They all settled in Mariposa County. The pioneers who came were the Helm family; Turner family; Lewis family; Probasco family; and Orme family. I have written one book on the family tree of the Helm Turner family. Genealogy has been my passion since my mother in law got me started on it in 2000.
Your Book on Pioneer Families Hi Carol - I am Scott Bethel, g-g-g-grandson of Sarah Savannah DeRossett Turner. I wanted to thank you for all the contributions in the Turner and DeRossett families. Recently I was told by a distant cousin that you had written a book called "Nicholas Turner and Descentdants: Pioneers of Plainsburg" -- I cannot find this book anywhere, but would love to obtain a copy and be able to connect some faces and history with my tree. I also have some unidentifiable family photos in my possession that might match up with those in your book. Please let me know how I might find a copy of your book. Thank you!
