Frederick Turley was a brother to my Great-Great Grandmother, Charlotte Turley. In a letter from Dr. Joseph Soll Turley, we learn this about Frederick’ daughter, Amelia Sophia: “His son Frederick had three daughters: Amelia, who was tall and stately and carried herself like a queen, who married a furniture-store owner and carter in Riverside; they have no children but adopted a very handsome boy who grew to be 6′ 3″ in height [Walter Ritchie Carter]. She was very friendly with my brother who was about the same age and was familiarly known as ‘Milly.’
Amelia was born 4 January 1857 in California. She died 29 Marcy 1945 in Riverside, CA. She married Luther Carter 7 January 1874.
