[1847-1906] – American lawyer, politician and Confederate soldier
During Reconstruction Starr joined the Knights of the White Camellia. Because of the group's antiblack activities in Harrison County, officers of the federal government placed Starr and other members in the stockade at Jefferson, but none of the group would testify against the others, and the charges against them were dropped. Starr was one of the organizers of the Citizens party, which restored white Democrats to control in Harrison County in the 1878 election. He preferred acting as a party official and leader in local politics to seeking election to state or national office; he stated in 1882 that he would "rather be chairman of a white league, Capt of a rifle club or Mayor of Marshall. We make congressmen." He served as a member of the state Democratic executive committee, was elected mayor of Marshall, and was appointed a regent of the University of Texas in 1893 by Governor James Stephen Hogg.
