Does anyone have more information on this couple. All I can find posted is a wedding date of April or July 6, 1788 in Bourbon Co., KY. Did they have children? I have found a 2nd hand account of his being killed by Indians and it mentions descendants.

Robert Sturgeon, was married twice, and had several children. Names of first family, do not have at hand. Only names of Robert Jr. and Samuel from second family. Bring Sturgeon's Body In. Is included in some material that we have. His brother in law, Mr. Buskirk, was also killed by Indians, about the same time. His son Robert Sturgeon Jr. was also killed by Indians, as he was on way back from burying his father, according to that account.

Jaunita,

Would love to hear more if you can find it. Robert and his wife Charity "Uncle Bob and Aunt Charity" raised my gr gr gr grandmother Clarisa (unknown) who married Daniel McCoy at Fort Valonia in the winter of 1811/1812 - per an account told by Daniel in 1881.

I thought she might have been orphaned and related to one of them - still trying to locate her maiden name - so I'd love to learn more about children of Robert.

Hopefully someone will recognize this family and fill in some missing blanks. Gave you all the info we have. With all of the perils facing the pioneer families, it is a mighty wonder, that we have as much info as we do. Good luck in your search!

Juanita,

Can you tell me how Robert and Burskirk were related - you say "His brother in law, Mr. Buskirk, was also killed by Indians, about the same time. His son Robert Sturgeon Jr. was also killed by Indians, as he was on way back from burying his father, according to that account." Did they marry sisters?

Where can I find a copy of the account of the killing?
