Belle Starr was born on Feb. 3, 1848, in Medoc, Missouri, under the name Myra Belle Shirley, to Mr. and Mrs. John Shirley after the family moved from Virginia to Missouri about 1842. She had two older brothers; one was a confederate solder. Belle was described to be rather small, pretty, vivacious and of fiery temper. She later became the head of her own gang of outlaws. The name Belle Starr was derived from one of her husbands, Sam Starr, also an outlaw, who died before Belle died. She was murdered by her own son, Ed Reed, when she beat him. Her daughter Pearl, supposedly also a "bad woman," died in Arizona. Her granddaughter showed a writer some poetry clippings and pressed flowers collected by Belle. According to a taped interview, Starr always got away, leaving men behind to be hung. See Folders 145 through 154, 257, and 262 for more information about Belle Starr.
