PERMELIA TURNER, the sixth of the family, was never married, and died in great peace March 15, 1898, at the advanced age of 84 years. She was intellectual, industrious. It could never be said of her "she eat the bread of idleness." She owned a good property and her own colored servant girl. Lived quietly and well. She had a host of friends to lament her demise. Her death surely was earth's loss and heaven's gain. Her dust repose in a nice quiet little cemetery on a hill just east from the mouth of Town creek near Philpott station, Henry county, Va.
