Dear Ms. Ribovich,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
For information about Leslie Orlando Turner, we suggest that you request a copy of his Official Military Personnel Files. OMPFs and individual medical reports for enlisted men of the U.S. Army who were separated from the service after October 1912 and prior to 1955 are in the custody of NARA’s National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis. In many cases where personnel records were destroyed in the 1973 fire, proof of service can be provided from other records such as morning reports, payrolls, and military orders, and a certificate of military service will be issued. Please complete a GSA Standard Form 180 and mail it to NARA’s National Personnel Records Center, (Military Personnel Records), 1 Archives
Drive, St. Louis, MO 63138-1002.
The First World War selective service (draft) records (including the 4th registration) are in the custody of the National Archives at Atlanta (RE-AT) via email at email@example.com.
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1900 Census; the 1920 Census and the 1930 Census in the Records of the Census Bureau (Record Group 29). Digital images of the 1900, 1920 and 1930 census records are not available yet in the Catalog for Pennsylvania but are digitized and available on Ancestry.
On Ancestry, we located his World War I Draft Registration Card and his World War II Draft Registration Card. We also located him on the 1900 Census at age 8 living with his father and brother; 1920 Census as head of household living with his wife Bessie, 3 children and a male relative; and 1930 Census living with his wife, and 6 children and a male relative. We also located their Virginia Marriage License; 1958 Death certificate for Leslie O. Turner, an Obituary; and Bessie Snyder’s Baptismal Record in 1896.
There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, you may view these records online at one NARA's facilities for free via a NARA PC. For the nearest NARA location, please consult our web page at https://www.archives.gov/locations/. Also, some of the images from Ancestry are available for free on Family Search at https://www.familysearch.org/en/.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Can't be positive this is your Leslie O but
1900 census, lists ,I believe it reads, I Daniel Turner as the father. He is listed as widowed. Leslie O is on the following page. Unless you find birth info or death info you may have a hard time finding his mother's name. She must have died between 1890-1900 if this is your grandfather.
WW 1 Draft Info. Doesn't help with parents but lists his birthdate.
Bessie? According to Google Sonestown is in what is now called Davidson Township in Sullivan County. This 1900 census seems to fit the bill. It lists her name as Bessie E Snyder.
Let me know if these help.
