(See Grant and Ghigau)-Ellis Bean, son of Thomas and Catherine (Reese) Starr, was born May 10, 1843. He served the Confederacy in Captain John Porum Davis’ company, and later in Captain Ephriam Martin Adair’s company.

He married February 28, 1877, Fannie Griffin, born January 1, 1855.

He died April 24, 18.96.

They were the parents of Thomas Bruce, born September 15, 1885; Mary Bunch, born November 3, 1888; Eliza Cherokee, born December 15, 1890, and Margaret Bird Starr, born February 5, 1895.

Mr. Starr was at the time of his death, credited with being one of the wealthiest cattle men among the Cherokees. One of his odd habits was that if he met and stopped to talk with anyone for any length of time, he invariably got off his horse, often saying that the horse needed rest.
