Research Log - LYTON / TURK research

Received an obituary for Emma Alice (LYTON) CHAPLIN from Christine Gray, RAOGK volunteer for Multnomah Co., Oregon. There wasn't a lot of new information, with the exception of the fact that she had two great-great-grandchildren living when she died. Emma's father was Henry LYTON, a Civil War soldier who had immigrated from Canada to serve in the Union. His real name was George TURK, and for some reason which is not quite clear, assumed the name Henry LYTON.
