Birth*circa 1846 Tennessee 
Marriage*circa 1866 Tennessee, Principal=Harriet (KECK) 
Note* BIO: Sterling is shown as 14 years of age in his parents' household in 1860; he does not appear with the family on the 1870 census. Compiler found Sterling in Union Co., TN in 1870, with spouse, 'Harret' and two young children. Calculating from the age of the oldest child on that record, results in an estimated year of marriage of about 1866. Per the 1870 census record, Sterling and his wife, 'Harret', had at least two children -- one and three years of age in 1870; the names of the two children are nearly impossible to read on the microfilm. Both are female, and the younger of the two appears to be 'Clerissa'. The older child's name looks like 'Rocia D.' but the 'c' is questionable. The family was not found on the 1880 census, but this may have been an oversight on the part of compiler. Since the names of the children were so uncertain, they have not been added to the family group here. It may be significant to note that there was also a 17-year-old female, Elisabeth COMINGS, enumerated in this household in 1870. The relationship of this young lady to the family is unknown. The transcription of the 1850 census estimates Sterling's year of birth as 1846; this is in agreement with compiler's calculations from the other census records.
