STARR family Outline Descent Tree(s) ODT
Contents:

President Sam Houston, of the Republic of Texas, selected Starr to be president of the board of land commissioners of the newly formed General Land office. President Lamar later appointed Starr secretary of the Texas treasury.

With civil war looming, Starr was opposed to secession and the election of delegates to the Secession Convention, but like many other Texans supported the Texas Confederate state government. In 1863, he was appointed Confederate agent for the postal service west of the Mississippi River. His public career ended with the surrender of the armies of the CSA in 1865.

Starr County was named for him.  -30-
