JOSEPH ROBERT TURMAN

1875-1958

 

 

His relatives and close personal friends knew him as "Bob". His friends in the business would know him as "J.R." He grew up during the Reconstuction Period following the Civil War, the son of a Farmer-Minister with a family of ten children. His opportunities for attending school were limited to the three "R’s".

 

Early in life he became accustomed to hard physical labor and when he reached his maturity, stood 6 feet four and one quarter inches tall, and was so adept with an axe and marel that he became the champion "rail splitter" in his community. Several of his acquaintances have told me that he was the strongest man on a "Handstick" at the local "log rollings" that they ever knew. After I became a young man, he was still physically the strongest man I ever knew.

 

He was as gentle as he was physically strong. He was a devout Christian who believed that the ‘golden rule’ was meant to be a guide for ones everyday actions in his dealings with his fellow man. He taught his sons that "honesty is the best policy" and that a good name was greater to be desired than great riches.

 

He enjoyed the quiet life of a country farm until my mother’s physical condition made it necessary for him to move to town, where his children built them a home next door to his youngest daughter. He survived my mother by less than two months, which was as he wished and prayed for it to be. I am looking forward to "That Great Reunion Day".

MY BIRTHDAY THOUGHTS

BY

 

WILLIAM W TURMAN

 

 

I took a backward glance today, at three-score and ten plus four;

I totaled it up for what it’s worth, whether it’s little, or maybe more.

I lived again the days when as a boy I reamed the wood beside the dusty trail.

I felt again life’s trials, it’s tears, and then the joy that comes when earnes efforts do not fail.

I cannot beast of wealth or fame, but, of this I am most humbly proud;

When the book is opened to my name, and when my record is read aloud…it could by today, tomorrow, it’s all the same, I’ve tried to be a leader, not just a man in the crowd.

WILLIAM WILSON TURMAN

 

During the month that I have corresponded with William, I have learned to admire his wonderful sense of humor and respect his many talents. William is a friendly, ambitious person and is an asset to his community. William is well educated, now retired from many years of teaching. During the years of teaching school, William taught many of his cousins, nieces and nephews. William is extremely talented in the fields of music and voice and has written several songs that was published by "Stamps Baxter of Dallas" in the 1920’s and 40’s. At one time he knew personally most of the song writers of ‘southern type’ music. Now retired, he stayed active by running a real estate business in Lawndale, CA where he now resides with his wife Bertha.

 

William also taught Theory in several normal schools. He attended the University of Arkansas, where he studied music, penmanship and other courses. He is also very interested in Family History and has a marvelous memory and can recall many incidents that took place in Alabama, Arkansas and Mississippi as a small lad.

 

William enjoys building things. One story related to me by William was the time he completely built and finished a double dresser. He used ashwood and gave it a natural shine. He made everything including the drawers. His wife, Bertha enjoyed showing it to their friends, until they found that the wood they had used was infested with termites. William states, he couldn’t get the dresser out of the house fast enough! All that was saved of his master piece was the mirror.

 

William will never forget the night of the Realty Board Installation Banquet. Three weeks before the banquet, the Banquet Committee asked him to give the invocation at the installations of the officers and directors of the Realty Board. After some persuasion, William agreed. There were several hundred persons including the Mayors and City Councils of both Hawthron and Lawndale, assembled in the Dinning Hall, when the Mayor called William to the podium for the invocation. William states, he had seen fellows in like situations get nervous and forget what they had said, so he wrote up a real good speech just for the occasion and slipped it under the podium light where he could refer to it if need so. Just after he started someone accidentally disconnected the microphone cord and his sound went off. He adjusted his voice up where he could be heard through the hall. Just as he started again his podium light went out and he couldn’t see his notes. After a slight pause, William continued making his speech up as he went along. This was the last time he agreed to speak for the Realty Banquet. As the old saying goes, "Alls well that ends well!"
