William Madison STURMAN (born 28 Feb 1786 Bedford Co, VA) was the son of William STURMAN (b 8 Jan 1753 VA) & Martha Cridle (b ca 1760) ... William md twice: 2nd to Delphia which was named in his military/pension records. The name "William Madison" only comes up for the son not the father!
Valentine & Vintner STURMAN, I believe to be one & same... from the census records. I never have found proof for a Vintner C., alonebut Valentine's name has taken various spellings. Do you have documentation for the two???
