Notes for Zadock Turner
During the revolutionary war, Zadock Turner served as a private in the 2nd Regiment of the Maryland Militia. He came to Georgia in 1793 [when he was 64] and settled in Mt. Zion, Hancock County.

“Zadock Turner came with his family and household goods on a sailing vessel from Chesapeake Bay. After a stormy passage, the vessel was driven to the West Indian Islands, and finally landed at Savannah, Georgia. One of the daughters died at sea and is buried in the Colonial Cemetery in Savannah. From Savannah, the Turner family took boats on the Savannah River to Augusta, Georgia, whence they crossed Georgia on horseback and in wagons and finally settled in Hancock County, East of the Oconee River, just after the Indians had removed a little farther west. He was in the [Revolutionary War] battles of Brandywine, Trenton and Valley Forge.”

-- Roster of Revolutionary Soldiers in Georgia, p.170

(Note: This reference reports his second wife’s name as Elisa. Whether this is a (a) an error, or (b) a nickname for Mary Blizzard, or (c) or a short marriage in between Sabra Hicks and Mary Blizzard is unclear.)


“He was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and fought with General Washington in the battles of Brandywine and Trenton and was in the campaigns of Philadelphia and New York and was present when the British surrendered at Yorktown.”
-- Thomas Holmes Timmons, “Ancestral Etchings”

Zadock Turner settled at Mt. Zion, Hancock County, Georgia. -- Turner Family Records, Georgia Archives, Atlanta, GA.
