Stirling Estate in West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana"In the name of God, Amen. I, Alexander Stirling, native of Farfar, Angushire, North Britain, now of Alexander's Creek, in the third district of West Feliciana, providence of Louisisana, planter, being at present in good health, and of sound mind, memory and understanding, do make and desire this to be my last will and testament."
Alexander married Ann Alston in 1784. Alexander and Ann have a very large posterity, who still gather at the family estate every few years. The family settled in Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, and the estate house is still standing today.
