James Starr

M, b. 28 October 1676, d. 1 March 1748/49
     Note: James and Rachel came to Pennsylvania in 1712 and settled in New Garden. Afterwards they removed to the site of Phoenixville, Pa.

James Starr was a farmer in county Cavan, Ireland, but due to the many hardships by the Quakers there, he brought his family to PA, where they could worship the way they wanted and live in peace.

James and Rachel made the long and tiresome journey with their two small children, Mary, born in 1701 and Joseph, born in 1710. They arrived in America to a vast wilderness which was inhabited only by Indians.

They presented a certificate from the Quaker Catterlough Monthly Meeting in Ireland dated 4th mo 7th day 1712 to the Newark Meeting, which was later know as the Kennett Meeting in Chester Co., PA.

Records are at the Newgarden Monthly Meeting.

In 1713 James Starr bought land in New Garden, Twp., Chester Co. Pa from William Penn for 20 lbs. per 100 acres. Others buying land at the same time were Michael Lightfoot, brother of Margaret Lightfoot Starr, Joseph Hutton, stepbrother of Rachel Laybourne Starr, and Thomas Jackson. Many of them lived on their farms for several years before getting titles for their land.

In 1714 James Starr was chosen clerk of the Newark Meeting, however as other Quakers settles in the area they decided a new meeting place was needed, thus the New Garden Mtd. was established in 1718 with James being elected the clerk and overseer. He served until 1726

In 1731 James and Rachel left New Garden Twp. and removed to the present site of Phoenixville, PA, where he purchased 230 acres of the "Manovan Tract" from the widow of David Lloyd. The land was located at the junction of the French Creek and the Schuylkill River. It commenced on Main Bridge St. and the Fountain Inn, then crossing the north side of French Creek, eastward within a few feet of the water and back again to the canal; Starr St. in Phoenixville was named in honor of James Starr. He gave land at the corner of Church and Main St. for a burial ground which was to be held by the Starr family for as long as it was needed by them. It is mentioned in article written by Samuel W. Pennypacker in the Annals of Schuylkill Twp.

Owning all the ground for a mile about him, he could well afford to give one acre to the dead, and probably thought as he separated it from the wilderness, that in this spot he and his children would rest until the final awakening. One after another of the Starr family passed away without leaving descendants to inherit their lands or their name and when the last of them had been carried to the family yard, the streets of a growing and busy town had stretched around and about it.

After a decline of the race for whom it was intended, it at first met with neglect and then became a kind of Potter's field. In it were buried the British who died or were killed in the neighborhood during the Revolutionary War, and the foreign workmen who perished from a fatal fever while digging the Schuylkill Canal.

This Cemetery was been removed to Maiden Creek, PA, and an act of Assembly was obtained to untwist the slight knots tied by the will of James Starr. The story goes that when clearing the land to build a drygoods store upon the site of the burying place it was disclosed that a careless worker had thrown the bones together in a box and carted them away.

James Starr was chosen a member of the Board of commissioners by the Assembly for the purpose of improving the navigation of the Schuylkill river, having as fellow commissioners, among others, were David Rittenhouse and Abraham Lincoln. The latter was probably the grandfather of Abraham Lincoln who later became president of the United States.

James is thought to have been the first setteler on the south side of French Creek and the first to make use of its water power. He built a saw mill, grist mill and a log cabin for the Miller.

In 1731 the business was placed under the control of his two sons, James and Moses Starr. They carried on the business for several years and finally rented it to Rowland Richards. In 1748 the Starr brothers sold the mill to Jacob Hilderband and Samuel Jones.
