William A. Sterling Sr. lived in Monroe County Iowa around the turn of the century. His sister Elizabeth was also living in Iowa, but this line of Clan Stirling has not yet been able to tie to other branches of the family. Census records for 1880 indicate William A. Sterling, age 55 years living with wife Jane and children. The Bridgeport Cemetery in Monroe lists his death 12/28/1875
Thanks to a contribution from a descendant Lyman L. Simms, A section devoted to William A. Sterling and his posterity has been setup in the family pages section.
