From the preface: "This copy of the clipping from probably a Rock Hill, S.C. newspaper of unknown source is important to the Sturgis history; "The first Sturgis settlers on the west side of the Catawba [River] was Daniel, son of Shadrack Sturgis, one of the three brothers of English, Irish, and Welsh descent who came from Northern Ireland to the eastern seaboard. About 1760, Daniel came to South Carolina and settled at McCullough's Mill, near the present graveyard. The mill was later the Jones Mill on the Catawba and still later the Garrison Mill. The mill which stood directly behind the Celriver plant is said to have stood until washed away by the destructive flood in 1916."
