201 In December 1898, the family was devastated with the deaths, within two days of each other, of their eldest and youngest sons, 19 year old Frank on the 10th and almost two year old Chalmers on the 12th. Frankís death was caused by a ìpulmonary abscess induced by a defective heart valveî. At the time of his death, he was working as a stationary engineer. Edward died after suffering nine days of bronchial pneumonia. Their joint funeral was held on December 12th in St. Patrickís Church and they were buried in the family plot in Notre Dame Cemetery. Cousin Jan de Grosbois Campbell passed on this story from her grandmother Amy about that awful week. In early December young Frank had decided to participate in an event that involved lifting heavy weights, a popular sport at the time. In lifting, he pulled all the muscles in his chest, severely affecting his heart. Emma tried to nurse him back to health, but he died some days later. Meanwhile Emma had been so worried about Frank, she didnít realize that Chalmers had contracted pneumonia. She was unable to nurse him back to health and he also succumbed. Amy remembered the funeral and the ìbeautiful little boxî her baby brother got to lie in. Turner, Edward Chalmers (I1435)

203 In early June 1942, Mark Turner was with the RCAF as a wireless operator/air gunner on Vickers Wellington bombers as part of RAF 1 Group Bomber Command, No. 103 Squadron. The Squadron was operating out of Elsham Wolds airbase in north east central England and likely participated in the famous "Thousand Bomber Raids" launched on May 30 and June 1 against Cologne and Essen, respectively. Wellingtons were by far the most numerous aircraft used in these raids.

On the night of June 8, 1942, Bomber Command launched a raid of 170 aircraft to Essen. The aircraft consisted of 92 Wellingtons, 42 Halifaxes, 14 Stirlings, 13 Lancasters, 9 Hampdens.
19 aircraft including 7 Wellingtons were lost. The raid was not a success. The target was not identified accurately and bombing was scattered over a wide area. Essen suffered light housing damage.

Vickers Wellington S/N DV773 of RAF Squadron 103, based in Elsham Wolds, was part of this raid. It departed at 11:16pm and at about 1:55am on June 9th was shot down by a German Me 110 night fighter piloted by Luftwaffe pilot Feldwebel Walter Spille near Bakel, about 5km northeast of Helmond, Holland. Bakel is on the flight path from Elsham to Essen, about 100 kms from Essen. The crew consisted of P/O JE Firman, Sgt. J. MacQueen, Sgt. JAM Turner (RCAF), Sgt. FEW Ball and Sgt. H. Halliwell. All were killed and are buried in Eindhoven (Woensel) General Cemetery.

In the 1901 Census, James is listed as occupying 300 acres on Lot 7, Range 7 and having 6 barns and outbuildings. As the family grew, it prospered. James acquired the adjacent farm. In the early 1900s,their land totalled approximately 500 acres. There were two barns, a stable for eight horses, a granary and a building to house farm implements. The farm also contained a quartz, spar and lead mine. (These minerals were in demand during the two world wars and the mine was operated by outsiders on a concession basis.)

Son Joseph later occupied James' first farm and son Patrick later occupied the second farm.

The access road from the highway is now named Chemin McClément and the immediate area has now been built up with expensive houses. During the last 25 years, part of the site of the original homestead was excavated for a gravel and sand pit.

James is buried in St. Gregoire's cemetery in Buckingham, Quebec.
