      William lived and reared his family in Meadville, Missouri where he was partner in a bank and he owned a dry goods store and mill. The panic of 1894 wiped him out financially. In 1907 the family moved to Yuma, Arizona to get a new start. There, the family began a long career of farming which was still being carried on by his son Stephen. William had two descendants carrying on the Sturges name; John Sturges, grandson of Clyde and Carl Sturges, grandson of Derelle.
