Sterling E. Dugger was born ca 1800/1801 per his age on the 1850 census (49). He was born in Virginia, probably Sussex County where he married.

His parents are unproven, but it looks like he may be a son of Jerman Dugger and Mary Rainey. That is based mainly on Sterling being in Sussex County where Jerman died, and also naming one of his own children "Jerman."

Sterling was listed on the 1830 census in Sussex, living by himself:
