  • Notes 
    • 1850 Census Warren, Illinois

      I received the names of John and his children from Melanie Hawkins Jenner in 2007. She was kind enough to share with me a starting point in my research. Other information was from Ancestry and the names of those sharing it is noted.
    • From Rose B.: He was the son of Lidea Sturges, unmarried. His father was John Knight. He supposedly was raised by his maternal grandparents and kept their name, Sturges....John immigrated to the US in 1834 going to Lancaster, PA. He joined the US army on 26, Aug 1834 and served in the Florida Indian wars. He was honorably discharged on 28 Aug 1837 at Fort Brooke which was near the present area of Tampa. He was regular Army and file is at the US Archives. Family story has it that after discharge he went north and ran some type of a cartage line, perhaps in the Bowling Green KY area where he might have met Eleanor Davidson. I have no proof for any of the family story. Vesta Sturges, a d/o William Wallace Sturges, just died a few years ago and told some of these family stories."
