The elder Turner moved to Arkansas in 1831, where he subsequently served in the state legislature and state senate. He was appointed U.S. District Attorney for his district; and in 1878 he was appointed Associate Justice of the Arkansas Supreme Court. The younger Turner followed in the steps of his father and was admitted to the bar in 1879. In addition to his attorney duties, Turner Jr., was president of the Crawford County Bank.
