What were James and Cynthia Starr thinking when they chose their firstborn child’s given name?


Mr. Jacoby - Thank you for this feature on Western Starr, the original owner of our home. We know a bit about him and wife Edith from papers and photos that have been handed down to each successive homeowner including us. But you have filled in a few gaps and painted quite a colorful picture. We long suspected he was an interesting fellow. Thanks again. Jennifer Manning & Steve Feldman, 1104 Forest Ave.
