Oregon Sturgill seeking roots
Posted by: Laurie Todd (ID *****7013) Date: October 26, 2005 at 07:47:12
  of 972

My maiden name is Laurie Renae Sturgill. My father is David Leroy Sturgill. My mother is Wilma Jeanne Sneddon. My Paternal grandfather was Roy Douglas Sturgill. My paternal grandmother was Audrey Fern McCook or Cook? My paternal great-grandfather was Seymour Sturgill. My paternal great-grandmother may have been Betsy? Seymour Sturgill served in the Civil War on the Union side? He married more than once and had something to do with tobacco growing? So many have died and no one is helping me gather Sturgill info. I am completely over my head. Anyone with info or ideas? I appreciate any help. There are very few of us in my area of Oregon. My brothers are Mark David Sturgill and Micheal Curtis Sturgill. Micheal moved to Wisconsin. I was born on October 29 1961. My dad may have been born in 1939? My grandpa Roy served on the Nevada in Pearl Harbour(yes he was there for the horror...even dived and saved people trapped in a sunken ship)When Roy was 2 his dad Seymour got custody of him and remarried...dont know who he married. Don't know my great uncles or aunts or even half. Anybody even know the meaning of Sturgill? Some sites say stur means star. Some say stubborn. Gill means servant or ravine depending on wich language but other sites say joy or baby goat. Which is it if any? Is it Scottish? Norse? German? No site seems to agree!
