Found inside the bible was a clipping of an obituary for Charlotte W. Thompson Turner from an unidentified newspaper/newsletter, It was written by J. H. Lockwood, the minister that married her daughter Lucy A. Turner and George A. Wood  on Aug. 15, 1869. That obituary read:

Near Bethel, Clermont Co., O., Dec 14, 1873, Sister Charlotte Turner, in the 59 year of her age.

Sister Turner united with the church at Bethel, in November 1832, in which she held her membership until death, a period of forty one years. She was not only among the first, but also one of the most steadfast and devoted of our members. She will be sadly missed in the congregation and by her relatives and all who knew her, but especially in the home circle, by her heart-stricken husband and daughters, who were so suddenly bereft of one so true, kind and faithful in every relation. May their hearts be filled with the consolation of the precious promises of Christ.

J. H. Lockwood
