McFARLAND,  Eliza  [1852-1909]                        

(from Bay City Tribune, Sat., 8 May, 1909, page 5)

DIED WHILE ON AUTOMOBILE TRIP

Mrs. Joseph Turner, attacked by heart disease, expired in few moments

CARRIED INTO DRUG STORE

Has been to Saginaw with auto demonstrator, testing possible 
purchase  -- Was Well Known

    Mrs. Eliza Turner, 1514 Center Avenue, widow of the late Joseph Turner, wealthy lumberman, died suddenly     shortly after 6 o'clock last night in J.F. Martin's drug store, Washington and Columbus Avenues, from heart disease.  Mrs. Turner was on her way home form an auto trip to Saginaw in company with D.F. Johnson, a demonstrator for the Olds Motor Works, who was doing special work for the Mohr Bros. Garage, the local Olds agency.  Mrs. Turner was in her usual health and during the afternoon there was no hint of any affliction.  She had been considering an auto purchase and the run to Saginaw was  for the purpose of demonstrating the car.  She had recently become  quite enthusiastic over motoring.
    The auto had reached Garfield and Columbus Avenues when Mrs. Turner was first attacked.  Mr. Johnston thought that dust had caused a coughing fit, as Mrs. Turner seemed to be choking.  She recovered somewhat but as she seemed to be in distress, Johnson swung the auto over to Martin's drug store and assisted Mrs. Turner into the store.  The proprietor, seeing that Mrs. Turner was ill immediately gave such relief as was possible, and Dr. Ambrose who was just passing by, was called in.  Mrs. Turner lost consciousness rapidly and heroic measurers were hurriedly resorted to without avail.
    Mrs. Turner was 54 years old and had been a resident of Bay City 33 years, coming here with her husband from Saginaw 33 years ago, almost immediately after their wedding in that city.  Four sons survive.  They are Arthur B. of New York City; Dwight J. and Clarence of Toronto, Canada; and Stanley Turner of Midland, Ontario.  Joseph Turner, the husband and father died almost three years ago under much similar conditions in the lobby of a hotel in Toronto, heart disease also being the cause of his death.  In her death Mrs. Turner had the fulfillment of a wish expressed to several of her friends that when the inevitable came, she hoped it would come as it had with her husband, quickly and painlessly.
    Besides the sons there survive also two brothers and two sisters -- John McFarlin of Turner, Mich, Robert McFarlin of this city, Mrs. M. J. Blackmar of Saginaw and Mrs. Herbert Bowdin of Owosso.
    Arrangements for the funeral services are held in abeyance pending advices from the sons, who have been notified of the death.

Note: Saginaw Census of 1870 show McFarland'; Eliza's marriage shows McFarland but her brothers above say 'McFarlin.  There are McFarland and McFarlin in the 1870 census.  Joshua Blackmar was land dealer in the 1870 census and living with him was Maggie and Eliza (could also be Blackmore)  

(Bay City Tribune Mon., 10 May, 1909. page 4)

Funeral of Mrs. Turner

    The funeral of the late Mrs. Turner will take place from the family residence, 1514 Center Avenue, today at 2:30pm.

1.  Father's name is Joseph Turner
2.  As far as I can see with research he enlisted as a Second Lieutenant
3.  Edith Turner Richardson
4.  G. Reid Richardson
5.
  This is most likely Dwight Richardson [1884-1912] buried in Midland Cemetery or possibly Dwight J. Turner.
6.  This is probably Irene H. Richardson who married Glen B. Skelton in 1907
7.  Jessie Richardson & George Burd  
8.  Emiline (Emily) Knox Turner

WITHOUTUTTERINGWORD

Joseph Turner Died in Arms of Clerk
   at Hotel King Edward - Death
            Apparently Painless

Cause Was Evidently Heart Disease
     Remains Will Arrive Here at
                 Noon Today

  A dispatch from Dwight J. Turner at Toronto to the Tribune yesterday contained the first details of the death of his father, Joseph Turner, at the King Edward hotel, in that city Mr. Turner had gone to his room to retire for the night, a clerk accompanying him.  Death came instantly without warning of any kind and Mr. Turner collapsed in the arms of the clerk.  Apparently the end was painless.  No exclamations or final words to indicate either pain or consciousness were uttered by the stricken man.  
  Dwight J. Turner, a son, who was at Midland, Ont.. arrived at Toronto yesterday afternoon and with Clarence Turner, who is also there, took charge of the remains.  They left Toronto at midnight and will arrive here at 12:40 this afternoon via the Michigan Central.  The funeral party will be met by an escort form Bay City Commandery No 26, Knights Templar, of which the deceased was a member and the remains will be taken direct to the home on Center Avenue and McClellan street. 
   The cause of death was a apparently an affliction of the heart, although Mr. Turner was not known to be suffering from the disease and never had any attacks indicating that the organ was affected in any way.  He had been suffering, however, for some time from stomach trouble, which at times was severe.  Arrangements for the funeral will not be perfected until the arrival here of Mrs. Turner's sons.
  Joseph Turner was the head of the Turner Lumber Co., operating extensively in Georgian bay district, the firm being composed  entirely of members of Mr. Turner's family.  The company cut logs and had them sawed by the thousand, operating no mill of its own.  This year the company manufactured  about 35,000,000 feet of lumber, its logs being sawed in mills at Cutler, south River and Midland.  Mr. Turner has been very prosperous the last few years owing to the activity in Canadian lumber and there is assurances that he will leave his family well provided for.
