The Sturman Family

Thomas E. and Margaret C. Sturman

I recently gained a lot of information on the Sturman family from three very nice men named Roger, Peter and Rick. This page will deal with my Sturmans in America. I know that Thomas Sturman was born in Cricks Parish, England in 1819. He immigrated to America before 1842. He was a coal miner, fought in the Illinois 125th during the Civil War and died in Kansas. He was a member of the GAR. He and his wife Margaret Crumbaugh Sturman had eight children, Sarah Jane, William, Roseannah, Mary Ellen, George, Margaret Harriet, Thomas and Elisa Emmaline.

I will link to pictures of all of these people except Elisa who died as a baby. If you see anyone you recognize please contact me.
