The only solid evidence I have concerning Elihu Sturgill's first wife's name is contained in the Ohio Death, 1908-1953 of Elhu's oldest son, William Riley Sturgill, 1853 - 1926. His mothers name is Elizabeth Davenport. In addition his son Franklin W. Sturgill, on his marriage license to his second wife, Mary E. Weatherholt, he gives his mothers name as Elizabeth Davenport. This record is Page 206 State of Michigan, County of Bay. Dated Nov.30, 1904.
