STARR, Belle [1848-1889] -- American outlaw
Belle Starr was largely unknown outside the Cherokee Nation, Dallas,
and parts of Arkansas when she died.
Soon, however, newspaper reports of her death were picked up by Richard K. Fox,
the publisher of the National Police Gazette.
When he published Bella Starr, the Bandit Queen, or the Female Jesse James (1889),
a twenty-five-cent novel based loosely on her life, the legends began.
Belle Starr was buried at Younger's Bend,
a remote place on the Canadian River where she often lived.
Her daughter later erected a headstone engraved with a bell, a star, and a horse,
purchased with earnings she made in a brothel.
