My Grandfather was Horactio Algernon Sturdevant. He went under the name of Alger, or Al. He was born in upstate New York in 1903, in a place he refered to as Mungult Pond(sp?). He had two Brothers, Ted (Theodore?) and Leslie, and one sister, who passed away when I was young. I beleive her name was Elinore.

When these children were still relatively young, the family moved to Sussex, New Jersy, dairy country, where Ted still lives.

Al moved to Clifton NJ, where he spent most of his adult life. He married Rose Hladic, and had two children, my uncle, Robert, and my mother, Kathleen.

My Grandfather passed away in 1981.

The only other reference I have about the Sturdevant history was releted to me through a biography some one had written about my grandfathers employer. His name was Mr. Takomini (sp?). He was Japanese, and his family presented many of the Cherry trees now in Washington DC to our government. Im not sure why, but this book contained the geneologies of many of the people Mr. Takomini was aquainted with. My Grand father was on of these. I glanced at this book once many years ago, and I only remember one interesting thing. One of the men in the family tree, a couple of hundred years prior, had been shanghi off the London Bridge, and forced into service a multy year voyage. That is all I can recall. If I get any responce to this posting I'll see if I can get a copy of the book, or at least the pages refering to the Sturdevants.

Matthew, I have been researching my family for many years. I would be interested in any information you have, especially on the older Sturtevants you mention in the biography.

Ellen Sturdevant was the sister to my great-grandmother Alice b. 1871, all info I have been able to locate confirms father as Hamlet. His father possibly Paul(?) married 3 times. Lydia Eddy is 1st wife and listed as mother to Hamlet, however, Hamlet is married to Julia (unknown) in 1820 and Hamlet was born 1824/5(?). Hamlet and wife Sarah Ann Henshaw had 8 kids and lived in Lambton until 1864? and moved to St. Clair county, MI. Found in Kimball on 1870, 1880 and 1900 census.

I married into the Sturdevant family about 11 years ago. As prep for a family reunion, I found a family history prepared and revised the last time in 1968. Interestingly, it opens with the story about being kidnapped off London Bridge.

If you are still with this - 10 years later, please respond.

My line of Sturdevant's left New York around 1800 and many are still in Michigan. Although your families do not appear to be directly related mine I encourage you both to check out the very active Sturdevant family researchers at yahoo We have hundreds of members and I am sure you folks might find connections and directions from our members.
