Notes for JAMES (STODGHILL) STURGILL:

It is believed that all who spell their name as Sturgill, Sturgell and Stargil are direct descendants of James Sturgill and Ann Calloway, prior to this, James family spelled their last name as Stodghill, some of Lewis Sturgill's descendants spelled it Sturgeon.

 


James nad wife Ann Calloway made their first home in Orange County Virginia, they lived on a farm along Swift Run Creek near the town of Stanardsville, Virginia. After disposing of all his land, to include that which he had inherrited from his father, he moved the family to Alleghany County, North Carolina about 1771 where he settled on the North side of New River, due to border disputes a survey of the property of James on the New River was determined to be in North Carolina, which is now part of the New River State Park. James and Ann buried on this land.

In 1812 John moved to Letcher County, Kentucky, after settling there for awhile, along the Cumberland River, buying a farm in Lee County, Virginia (now Wise) from brother James who had bought it in 1812. John later moved to Harlan County, Kentucky, then back to Wise County, Virginia. Then back again to Letcher County, Kentucky where wife Jemima Wells died in 1856 and is buried there.
