George was an enslaved worker who worked in the fields at Tuckahoe during the Allen period. His name first appears on the Allen account of 1856 simply as “George” with no last name or age. Later, the name appears again on the 1859 list as “George Turner”, this time with an age recorded as well. If this was indeed the same man, he would have been born around 1824. Above his name we see “John Turner” who was around the same age and was presumably his brother. Below George’s name we see a woman named Margaret Turner (about 10 years younger) who was purchased on February 1, 1859 along with several children (Mildred, Alice, and Caroline) for the sum of $1,525. It is unclear how they may have been connected to George but it is certainly possible these were his wife and children.
