Hi. My name is Angela Sturgeon Walling. I married my Husband, Donald in 1994. I guess genealogy and history are in my blood. My Grandma Tigert has always done a lot of family research, and because of it, I know a lot about my ancestors.
Then when I was a Jr. in high school, we had to do a family tree in one of my classes. Well, most people had their family traced back to their great grandparents at the most. NOT ME !
I kept going and going and going. Mine was traced back the furthest of anyone in the class, but I didn't stop there ! I went out and interviewed my Great Grandpa Sturgeon, and got my Aunt DiAnne to videotape it. I also went to my Great Great Aunt Nita and interviewed her, too. It was awesome. Hearing them tell their stories of days gone by, just amazed me. I was hooked ! From then on, I have tried my best to keep family records and explore my family's history. I cherish the old photos and documents I have and I love when my Grandparents or my Great Aunts or Uncles tell a story !
My family has walked The Trail of Tears.
My family has sailed across the ocean from Ireland, Scotland, England, Holland and Germany.
I have many stories to share, so please be patient, as I work on getting all of this in here.
Some of my family names include; STURGEON, GREEN, TAYLOR, DAVIS, AUSTIN, LEMONS, KIDD, HUTCHINSON, TIGERT, NIX, TRIMBLE, FREEMAN, CASEBOLT, BEACH, WEST, TURNBULL, plus many more.
Some of Donald's family names include; WALLING, VOSS, PARTRIDGE, GIST, WHITTEN, YARBROUGH, BEAUCHAMP and many more.
Come back soon and see what I have added, and if you're related, to any of my family, I'd love to hear from you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I am currently trying to add several branches of my family to the internet. I have started adding pages for individual lines of my family and Donald's.
Scroll down to the RELATED LINKS on this page and click on Family History of Donald and Angela Sturgeon Walling.
Please feel free to go there and read about my family history.
Then you can link back to here to see the photos and family tree, if you'd like.
I realize right now...some things aren't complete. But,this is a work in progress.
A Family Tree Can Wither If Nobody Tends It's Roots !
That is So True.

Second marriage license of Warren (Warner) Elderwood Sturgeon and Mary Ellen Brackeen. Dated February 27, 1892. This is still a bit of a mystery at this time.

Is this Albert "Sid" Sydney Lemons ?
On the back of this picture it is written: C Isbell Antelope Tx, An Mattie, Sid Lemons, Mrs. A.M Bidford, Marley TX, Albert Lemons Antelope Texas. So we are not sure of who this is a picture of and are hoping that someone can help identify this couple.
Thanks for the help.
