      Although I have commonly seen Catherine, wife of John DENT listed as a
      TURNER, I think that may be in error. Do you know of any evidence for
      her being a TURNER? I have never seen anyone give a source for her being
      a TURNER. Harry Wright Newman's, *Charles County Gentry* only lists her
      as Catherine. My guess is that someone took the 1733 inventory of John
      DENT where George DENT and Edward TURNER signed as next of kin, and
      assumed that John DENT's wife Katherine was a TURNER.

      As John Long's 1697 will and the accounting for the estate of Clement Long in Prerogative Court Abstracts, 1697-1700, Abstracts 1697-1700 (Libers 16, 17, 18, 19, 19 1/2a, 19 1/2b), Page 42 both refer to an Elizabeth Haley, dau. of Clement, that Elizabeth could not have married Edward Turner about 1683 and been the mother of Catherine Turner, wife of John Dent
