I READ with great interest your article about the Gornal triplets (Bugle, November 21 edition).
Three years a go I started trying to trace my Sturman family name, as my father never really spoke of his upbringing in the Black Country. But I well remember my grandmother Rose Hannah Haden (15-06-1887 to 06-03-1965) who married my grandfather John Sturman ( 25-03-1886 to 04-04-1956). Is this my link to the Haden family?
If it is would it be possible for David, Derek and/or Donald Haden - or maybe Matt Haden, son of David, to please drop me a line and I will send them a copy of my family tree.
Just for interest, the next Sturman generation back ran the Travellers Rest and built the John Stuman Mill in Blackheath.
Looking forward to hearing from them. Many thanks.
