CD: Solomon Sturges and His Descendants, A Memoir and a Genealogy


Solomon Sturges was born April 21, 1796 in Fairfield, Connecticut, where his ancestors had lived for five generations. The first chapter details his line of descent from John Sturges born in 1624 in England. The second chapter presents Solomon's recollections of his boyhood. The third chapter begins after his marriage to Lucy Hale, daughter of Benjamin and Martha (Welles) Hale. The next chapter is devoted to a daughter's (Kate Sturges Benton) recollections of her mother (Lucy Hale Sturges). The final chapter presents the descendants of Solomon Sturges through the fourth generation. This volume is illustrated with many fine portraits and two genealogical charts, one for Solomon Sturges' side of the family and one for Lucy Hale Sturges' side of the family. An everyname index provides easy access to the Sturges' family.
