I believe your Starling is a son of James Allison and Jane Ayers Yearwood. The dates certainly fit. Their children John H. and Jennie were named after my great-great grandparents, who were cousins of James A. My John H. and Jenny Yearwood moved to Greenesboro, GA about the same time James A. and Janie moved from Habersham.

James A. and Janie Ayers are buried on Carey Station Road in an old family cemetery, near where Carey Station Road crosses I-20. From Greenesboro, head towards Madison, GA on GA 278. Go a few miles and turn left on Carey Station Road. The cemetery is on your right.

Below is a little history on the Yearwoods back to Robert Yearwood of Virginia. I have more if you are interested.

January 1856 in Toccoa, Habersham, Georgia. He married JANE AYERS about 1877 in Habersham County.

Children of JAMES YEARWOOD and JANE AYERS are:
       i.       JAMES D.6 YEARWOOD, b. April 1878, Toccoa, Habersham, Georgia.
       ii.       MARY E. YEARWOOD, b. May 1882, Toccoa, Habersham, Georgia.
       iii.       WILLIAM C. YEARWOOD, b. February 1886, Toccoa, Habersham, Georgia.
       iv.       STARLING YEARWOOD, b. May 1889, Toccoa, Habersham, Georgia; m. WELMEDA.
       v.       CHARLES A. YEARWOOD, b. January 1890, Toccoa, Habersham, Georgia.
       vi.       WELTHIE YEARWOOD, b. March 1891, Toccoa, Habersham, Georgia.
