Thayer's Note:

a The Register does not give the date of Mr. Turner's death, although he is marked as deceased in Vol. IX of the Supplement. I supply it from the Find-a‑Grave site linked under the burial information: while the identity of the two men is surmise on my part, it's made very plausible by the unusual full name and the location of the grave in Portland.
