My direct Stuman, Frances Stuman b 1820, never married. She managed to have four children
whom were all surnamed Stuman. Harriet, James, Thomas & Elijah.
(Her daughter Harriet, did the same.)
Elijah C. Stuman is my gg-grandfather b 1851 in Franklin, NC.
Frances' father was perhaps Marvel.
There are two Marvel's that create a mess of discernment. Once that hurdle is made, I'm
certain the line goes to Thomas Sturman.
My dear cousin Marcia was very thorough, but always hit the same brick-wall.
