I'm researching Sterlings who family lore say come from "Boland, Clanfecle, Tyrone Co., Ireland". We're descended from Margary Sterling, who was sister to Hugh Sterling, William Sterling, Israel Sterling, and Elizabeth Sterling in the 1700s. Margary married a Scotch-Irishman, John Watters. Margary's son William Watters (b. 1769) emigrated to the States in the 1790s,married to a Magerete Sterling (b. 1773). Any help is appreciated.
