On of the very earliest settlers to arrive in the Town of York was Abe Turner a native of the state of Maine. He was about 50 years old. He had been married in Maine, but his wife died and he and some of the children came to Wisconsin. He settled first at Chippewa Falls where he met and married Arvilla Thompson. They settled on what is now the Leo Scheekiman farm. He was a woodsman serving alsou on the first town board after York was organized. He was in Clark Co. by 1860.

His son, Abie (of this second marriage) married Hattie Lindsley of York Center and they had several children: Mabel (Schoenfeld), Harriet (Triska), George, Clayton, and Orville of Neillsville, Victor of Wisconsin Rapids, and Wilbur of Kirkland, Illinois. Myron Turner died recently at Eagle River and is buried at York Center.
