"DANIEL STERLING (James), b. In Cornwall in 1769; m. July 25, 1793, Mary Bradford, b. in England, July 14, 1771, dau. of John and Mary (Fitch) Bradford. Daniel removed in
1804 to the "Black River Country," in Jefferson Co, NY, and settled in the township of Antwerp, a mile north of Indian River.

This section was then first being settled. There were no highways for the last stages of the journey and the wife and mother had to walk miles through the forest, carrying her youngest child, while the father cut a path through the underbrush for the pas- sage of their wagon. One of the first deeds recorded for this locality is in the name of Mary (Bradford) Sterling, 1806. Daniel Sterling was a man of considerable education. He was a justice of the peace and general arbitrator of neighborhood difficulties, so that he came to be called " Judge " Sterling. He was the first highway commissioner of his town. He was a Royal Arch Mason.
