EDINGER From H&R files Daniel Braxton Turney has given color to the faded pages of Decatur's history, but the years have clouded his achievements from present generations. As a candidate for the presidency of the United States on the United Christian ticket in 1908 and 1912, Turney was probably one of Decatur's widest-known citizens in his time Turney, a minister in the Methodist Church, was born in Shawneetown in 1848. He first lived at 1296 S. Webster St. in Decatur, but at the time of his death in 1926, he lived at 1396 S. Hilton St. The presidential candidate came from a long line of famous Americans. His great-grandfather, Carter Braxton, was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. He was also related to Henry Clay, the famous pre-Civil War statesman. Turney was nominated for the presidency on May 2, 1908, at the party's national convention in Rock Island. Four states were reportedly represented by 50 delegates, the majority being women. The popularity of the party among women was because of one of the principal planks in the platform woman suffrage. Although Decatur residents in 1908 didn't expect their fellow citizen to be elected president of the United States, they all enjoyed the campaign and had fun talking about Turney's chances. "Oh no, I don't expect Daniel Braxton Turney to be the next president of this country," his son rv w i.-' ft' . - George J. Turney, said at the time . "But, he might slide in through a possible slip-up," George said. "We all take it as a good joke at our house, and we never expect to do the honors in Washington unless such an accident should occur. Dad's ambitious, I know, and he might land somewhere some day." The presidential candidate's wife voiced her views, even though women were not allowed to vote at that time. In his letter of acceptance of the nomination to the United Christian chairman, Turney said, "The problems which confront our nation and the rest of the world can be solved by political and personal application of the Ten Commandments, the Golden Rule and the wise and paternal principles in the God honoring platform of United Christians." Turney advocated a reduction in salary of the president. There were apparently no sad hearts or statements conceding the election necessary in the Turney camp following the Nov. 3, 1908, vote It was two months before Turney's estimated vote could be calculated. But, on Jan. 11, 1909, the total vote was figured at a little more Daniel Turney Presidential candidate than 15,000. In a letter from the secretary of state of Utah, it was certified that 14,112 of Turney's total vote came from that state. The disappointing thing about the election was that only three ballots were counted for Turney in Macon County. Illinois cast 633 votes for the Decatur resident. An explanation of the large Utah vote was not given. This was especially surprising due to Turney's views the following year, when he organized the American Party. In February 1909, Turney and two other delegates held the first national convention of the party in Springfield. Its platform stated, according to its founders, that the organization intended "to sweep the Republicans and the Democrats and the Mormons and the Catholics out of the United States into Japan, Canada, Australia or Switzerland, or some other equally inaccessible place" Turney, who was nominated again in 1912 by the United Christians, said the convention h?d grown to 250 delegates representing seven states. Turney's name failed to get on the general election ballot because the party missed the filing deadline. Other activities of Turney included various writings. One of these was "The Mode of Baptism According to the Scriptures." His wife, Emma Virginia Oglesby Turney, died in 1937. Donald M. Turney, a grandson of the presidential candidate, was an impersonator of Abraham Lincoln.
