Anyone know who this guy is??????

Book A Page 276
WHILE GOOGLING I FOUND THIS BELOW:
Deeds of Gift: Daniel Sturgis to Benjamin HICKS Sturgis for goodwill and affection: All landed property conveyed to me by dec'd brother William Sturgis in the state of South Carolina. ("Early Court Records of Columbia Co")
FROM this link
DOES ANY know if these are the SAME Sturgis families??Wasn't 640 acres an amount of land granted during the REV WAR for NORTH CAROLINA SOLDIERS?I know parts of the PEE DEE RIVER were in border disputes between NC and SC with the same areas at one time in SC taken into NC and visa versa.
Any info would be helpful, thanks.
