Leroy "Buck" STARR
©The Standard-Sentinel
August 8, 1902
Submitted by: Wanda Elliott

Leroy "Buck" STARR, the last of a family of eleven children - six boys and five girls, - died at his home near Stilwell last Tuesday morning, from sunstroke.
Uncle Buck, as everybody called him, was in his 79th year. He was an excellent type of the old generation and lived in the old Indian style to the last.
Five brothers and five sisters preceded him to the unknown land. His brothers were : Ellis, Cale, Jack, Hickory and Zeke.
They were sons of Zeke STARR who died way back in the 40's in Washington D.C., while serving his people as a delegate.

Uncle Buck was ready for the summons, for he had lived a harmless life, doing unto others as he would have others do unto him.
His remains were buried in the old Hickory Starr burying ground last Wednesday by a large concourse of friends and relatives.
Ellis STARR and Mrs. RAILEY, a son and daughter survive him.
The Standard extends sympathy to the bereaved.
[Local News] Hon. and Mrs. Ellis STARR of Sallisaw, were up this week attending the bedside of Uncle Buck STARR, Ellis' father. Mrs. Mary RAILEY of Muldrow, a daughter of Uncle Buck STARR was at his bedside when he died.
