    From Jan Covey, Dec. 2009:
    Sharon: When you get time, you might like to check out the following website wherein there is detailed evidence as to the Indian heritage of Rachel Waters Sturgill (wife of Joel Sturgill and likely mother of our Lydia Sturgill Cox who married Braxton Jason Cox). However, the oral tradition seems to vary as does the court evidence.
