From Joseph Soll Turley Letters:
“Aunt Sara Elizabeth whom I had the pleasure of visiting several times in Colton, was in bed between the years of 1911 and 1914 when she passed away. She lived the longest of any of Theodore Turley’s children, aged 79. She had one son, George, who owned his own marble shop in Huntington Beach and whom I also had the pleasure of knowing. She had two daughters. The older, Elizabeth Miller, lived in retirement in San Bernardino. She had one son, a cowboy on the desert and a teen-aged daughter when I visited them in 1911. She was rather short but was very cheerful and pleasant to me and she lived in Colton with her other married daughter, Marianne, a wonderful woman. She had suffered a bad accident in her younger years and had to hobble around on crutches but was very cheerful and sweet and did all her housework in a two-story house and cared for her invalid mother and her husband. He was a veteran of the Civil War and his name was Brown, and was in the real-estate business.”
