The following unidentified newspaper article was in a collection owned by Lowell Town Historian Richard Schmal:
LaGrand Turner, oldest son of the late Marin and Hannah Turner, was born in Newaygo, Mich., January 9, 1857, and died at the home of his sister at South Chicago October 24, 1914, at the age of 57 years. For several years he had been employed in Englewood but made his home with his sister, the two being the only surviving members of the family. In August he met with a slight accident and he came home and gradually failed, and about three weeks before he died he was taken seriously ill, and everything that could be done was done for him. At his bedside when he died was his sister and her family.
He was highly respected and loved by all. He was a patient sufferer to the end. He leaves to mourn, his sister and her family, two aunts, Mrs. Perkins Turner, of Lowell, and Mrs. Mary Darche, of Schneider, several cousins and other relatives. His remains were taken to Lowell and buried beside his father and mother. Undertaker Weaver had charge of the burial services.
