Today is the 100th Anniversary of the Sinking of the Titanic and I am sorry to have to report there are 2 conflicting articles on William John TURPIN both of which are incorrect. William John R (Reginald) TURPIN is the son of John R (Rowse) TURPIN who lives at Commercial Street. Nor is he the son Of Robert TURPIN of Cornwood. He is most likely the son of Jacob John Strike (John) TURPIN and Mary Ann (Annie) HALSE. A descendant of this family has ordered the marriage certificate of William John TURPIN and Dorothy Ann WONNACOTT which will state the father of William John. There is also more associated evidence of the correct family. We will post the results of our research in a few weeks when the MC arrives.Despite this sad turn of events we can still remember William John and Dorothy TURPIN on this sad occassion as they are still part of our greater TURPIN Family.
