LAKE STURTEVANT, WA, USA
This lake is located in a suburb of Seattle.

'The first homesteader on the site that would become Overlake was Clark M. Sturtevant, a Civil War veteran. In 1873 he paddled up Mercer Slough, reportedly breaking seven beaver dams on the way to his claim. On today's map, his property covered territory bounded by Northeast and Southeast Eighth Avenues and by 112th and 116th Streets. In 1875, Sturtevant bought a small tract of land around the lake that still officially bears his name today , despite being more well-known as Lake Bellevue. Sturtevant reportedly married a local Native woman, and made his living by trapping. In a single year, he marketed the pelts of 130 minks, four otter, and several muskrats.' (Ref)

STURDIVANT HALL , Alabama, USA

Sturdivant Hall Sturdivant Hall, located in Selma, Alabama, is one of the state's outstanding tourist attractions. This magnificent structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and in the 1934 American Building Survey. Its construction was begun in 1852 by Colonel Edward T. Watts, a local resident.

In 1957, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Sturdivant gave the community $50,000 to be used to house their personal collection of antiques. This collection has been augmented over the years - the result is an outstanding display of Southern furnishings. Because of the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Sturdivant, the museum bears their name.

The Sturdivant Museum Association, which operates the mansion and museum, was organized by a group of interested citizens of Selma and Dallas County. The association gives financial support in addition to the funds provided by the City and County governing bodies, for restoration and renovation of the mansion. This association continues to build upon the original collection of Mr. Sturdivant and his wife, Elizabeth Reese Sturdivant.

John McGee Parkman was killed upon trying to escape from prison after being arrested for speculating in cotton with bank funds. He has been spotted gazing out of the cupola at the top of the mansion. Guides tell of sensing his presence in an upstairs bedroom, and once the fire department was called when smoke was observed pouring out an upstairs window.
