I received a message from the family:

Thomas Calvin Durham was my great grandfather. My grandfather was Benjamin Franklin Durham, born jan. 22, 1903 in Piedmont, MO. He was the son of Thomas Calvin Durham and Ednd Josphine Turley, Thomas' 3rd wife. I have been looking for his picture, and would like to see his portrait and the information that you have

Listed on Missouri Marrriage records 1805-2002, Ancestry.com

Though you would like but I have not found the cred for the marriage yet... Lot of names to go through.

Hi Sally,
Just looking at the death certificate of Edna Josphine Ernest (Missouri Digital Heritage - Death Certificates), Edna's parents are listed as Ben Turley and Mary Turley.

So it appears that the person who sent you the message is correct. I guess someone may have given me some mis-information. I will correct the listing I have. Thanks.
He died on 11 Oct 1956 in Louis, St. Clair County, Illinois.5
