Yes.  Thank is the single source.  Mitch at the Historical Society was not aware of the blockhouse.

That's fine. History is fascinating. Take that source, the buzz words and sites it describes and dig more. You'll likely discover more things that people like you, me and the historical society won't know.

This Library of Congress map of 1898 Duval county shows the Turner bridge and ferry site... it also show tracts of land belonging to members of the Turner family... every time I open this map and zoom in I find fascinating names and places... I could not find the block house but a closer inspection may show it...  8)
