Thank your, Marian.
My Isaac Sturgill was born around 1900. He was related to Roberts and Kilgores of Wise Co. He was a cousin to my great-aunt Cosby Roberts Hagerman, daughter of Aggie Sturgill And Galen Roberts. Monroe Sam Roberts was a brother to Galem. Sam had a daughter. Victoria, also cousin to Cosby Roberts Hagerman. In 1921,Victoria came to McDowell Co. to stay with Cosby and met my great-uncle Richard Kennedy. They fell fast in love, although she was promised to Osacc Sturgill. Richard and Victoria were married and she became pregnant. Not knowing this had happened, Isaac Sturgill came with Sam Roberts to get Victoria and take her back to Wise Co. When he found out she was married and would not go back with him he shot himself in the head in my great-grandmother Sarah Kennedy's yard. It is along but interesting story. Victoria had her baby early and it died and she died 9 days later. she is buried in our Family Cemetery. She was born either in 1906 or 1908. She would have been either 14 or 16 when she died.
The stone is handmade and it is hard to read. Would love to know where Isacc Sturgill is buried and find his death record which should be in Welch Wv, but can not find it.
thanks for your reply,
