      Died as a result of the Civil War, in a field hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas. He and his brother, Rufus, who both enlisted in the 26th Arkansas Infantry on the same day as Sterling, died in the same hospital just a few days apart. Their older brother, John, had died three months previously, also after being hospitalized in Little Rock.
