ADAIR COUNTY NEWS, September 25, 1901
Ripe in years, this estimable old lady, well-known in Adair County 
and specially to the citizens of Columbia, finished her life work last 
Friday. A few weeks ago she visited a daughter in Marion County and one in Louisville, and a granddaughter in Washington county, returning to Adair much broken in health. For several years she had made her home with her daughter, Mrs. F. P. Dohoney, who resides at Milltown, occasionally visiting her daughter, Mrs. Mary T. Harvey, of this place. In a few days after her return home she rapidly grew weaker until the end came.
The deceased was born and reared in Adair County and was a daughter of Nimrod Bailey, who will be remembered by our older citizens. When quite young she was married to Mr. Caleb Turk, eight children being the fruits of their union. The husband died many years ago. The children are all living but three, Mrs. Harvey being a resident of Columbia.
Mrs. Turk was 79 years old, and if we remember correctly, was a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and had been since early in life. She was buried near Milltown Saturday afternoon, many relatives and friends being present. We are told that the deceased was ready to go at her Masters call, and could have truthfully said:
"I would not live always, I ask not to stay"
(died 9-20-1901)
