Birth: 1700, Germany
Death: 1775
Virginia, USA

Frederick Staring/Starnes/Starns/Stearns was born near the village of Alzey, in the Palatine region of what is now Germany c. 1700. He came with his father Adam, and uncles Nicholas and Valentine (and various unnamed members of their families) to Rotterdam, then to London, then arrived in New York in 1710. He married Mary Goldman, a daughter of Conrad Goldman, another Palatine immigrant. They were in NY as late as 1733, spent a brief time with her brothers in Pennsylvania, and arrived in Virginia around 1740. While it is not known for certain, it is believed that Frederick and his wife Mary are buried in this cemetery, near the site of their homeplace. Descendants placed a marker here in his memory in the 1990s.
