This source is a book review of Papers Concerning Robertson's Colony in Texas, Vol VIII, November 1833 through September, 1834, which was edited by Malcolm D. McLean, published in 1981 by the University of Texas at Arlington Press. It says Sterling Robertson was born in Nashville, Tennessee and orphaned at age 12. He was placed under the tutelage of Judge John McNairy. He, meaning Robertson, served in the War of 1812 emerging with the rank of major.
In 1822, Sterling Robertson joined the Texas Association and became a stockholder in the company, and formed his own company in Nashville to explore Texas. In 1825 he returned to Nashville to recruit colonists. After much difficulty, he got his Nashville Colony grant in 1834 known as Robertson's Colony.

Context— Col. Andrew Erwin stood for election to the lower house of the Tennessee General Assembly in 1821 from Bedford County, Tennessee. That was the same year John G. Sims and Maj. Theoderick Bradford stood for election to the upper house from Bedford. As we shall see in future posts, Col. Erwin's activities and those of Dr. Boyd McNairy would intersect in very significant ways.
