  • Notes 
    • Clinton B. Sterling, father of our subject, was born in October, 1837, in Columbia County, where he spent most of his life, and at present his home is in Bloomsburg, Pa. His occupation, in his active life, was always that of a teamster, and he was widely known throughout the county. He has always been a stanch Democrat and has taken a very active part in the town politics, having served as councilman for his native town thirteen consecutive years; then, after a year out of office, he again served two years more, and was urgently requested to continue to serve but refused. In church affairs he has been equally active, being a member of the Presbyterian Church, and has served as elder in the Reformed Church. Mr. Sterling married Lucy Loreman, a daughter of Samuel Loreman, and they are the parents of nine children, six of whom are living.
