Sorry for the delay, I was away on vacation.

What was the witness of the fight between Turin and Saeros sitting on when she saw the fight?

I could only find the name of the witness - Nellas.
And what she was sitting on..? On a rock?

Nellas was her name, and she told Thingol what she was sitting on. Keep trying!

Nellas, Turin's friend, was sitting on a tree when she witnessed the fight, so the answer would be wood.

Perhaps it was Androg? I know that he coveted the bow of Beleg which was the most famous bow of the First Age (I think), but Beleg was an Elf, and his bow was buried with him...

Turin wielded a bow when in Brethil, but someone already mentioned him.

I'm quite sure that Russandol has a very good grasp of the correct word to use here. Wrack is, indeed, the appropriate term.
From Merriam Webster:
Wrack - noun
(Etymology: Middle English, from Old English wrc misery, punishment, something driven by the sea; akin to Old English wrecan to drive, punish - Date: 15th century)
: Ruin, destruction

It was Orleg. The Orcs thought he and Turin were Noldor, hence their cries of Golug!.

Yes, the hardest part of trivia is coming up with tough questions...

Who was killed in the same place and same way as his father?

Because the birth of Fanor exhausted her so much that she went to Lorien where her spirit left her body.
