STAHR, STARR posted by Lisa Starr on Sunday, March 2, 1997 

I am looking for any information on a Charles Montgomery STARR including parents, etc.. My information shows he was born January 18, 1890 in Shelbyville. Any other information on STARR (also possibly spelled STAHR) family would be most helpful. I am told we are related to the STARR that married into the Cherokee Tribe through Caleb STARR sometime in the late 18th century and that we are also related to the notorious outlaw Belle STARR. I have not been able to make the connection yet through family lines. Charles Montgomery STARR would be my grandfather. Thank you for any insight or help.
