I was born January 17th, 1887, in the Canadian District of the Cherokee Nation, on what was known as the Tuxie Starr place, about four and one-half miles southwest of Porum.

My father was Tuxie Starr, a full blood Cherokee Indian, son of Tom Starr, who came to the Indian Territory during the movement of the Cherokees over the Trail of Tears. 

My mother was Isabelle Campbell, a sister of John Campbell.  There were four of us children; Suky, Milo, Dick and I.

My sister, Suky Starr, attended school at Henry Kendell College in Muskogee, and her first and only lover was Milo Hendricks, a Choctaw Indian, who left school to fight in the Spanish American War, where he was killed.  Suky died a few years later.

I was reared in the vicinity of my birth place and educated in the Cherokee National school and the Female Seminary school at Tahlequah.

In 1910 I was married to Clifford Sillers, white.  We are the parents of five children.  Four boys and one girl.  Mr. Sillers was a successful farmer and stockman.
