Belle Starr

Belle Starr was born Myra Maybelle Shirley on her father’s farm near Carthage, Missouri, on February 5, 1848. Most of her family members called her May. Her father, John Shirley, prospered raising wheat, corn, hogs and horses, though he was considered to be the “black sheep” of a well-to-do Virginia family which had moved west to Indiana, where he married and divorced twice. Her mother, Elizabeth “Eliza” Hatfield Shirley, was John Shirley’s third wife and a distant relative to the Hatfields of the famous family feud. In the 1860s, Belle’s father sold the farm and moved the family to Carthage, where he bought a livery stable and blacksmith shop on the town square.
