I am looking for informtion on a Lydia Rentfro that married a James Turner and an Isaac Smith in Franklin Co. Va. Could this be the same James Turner in 1840 census of Wilson Co. Tn. there was a Liddie (Lydia) Turner who married a William Smith in 1828 in Wilson Co. Tn. William Smith was son of Isaac Smith and Sarah Gray. I think Isaac may have been in Franklin Co. Va before he purchased his first land in Wilson Tn. for Peter Looney (who was also from Va).
