    Garfield was shot twice by Charles J. Guitea at Railroad Station in Washington, D.C. on July 2, 1881. After eleven weeks of intensive and other care Garfield died in Elberon, New Jersey, the second of four presidents to be assassinated, following Abraham Lincoln.

    1883 · The Newhall House Hotel Fire

    Age 3

    A fire erupted on January 10, 1883, at the Newhall Hotel in Milwaukee. The fire began at 4:00 am in an elevator shaft and raced up through the building. The fire spread so quickly that many could not escape. General and Mrs. Tom Thumb, stars of P.T. Barnum's circus, were guests in the hotel at the time of the fire. A firefighter reached them by ladder and they were able to escape safely. The exact number of deaths remains unknown as the hotel register was destroyed in the fire, however, the death toll is estimated between 75-90.

    1901 · Assassination of Mckinley

    Age 21

    President William McKinley was shot at the Temple of Music, in the Pan-American Exposition, while shaking hands with the public. Leon Czolgosz shot him twice in the abdomen because he thought it was his duty to do so. McKinley died after eight days of watch and care. He was the third American president to be assassinated. After his death, Congress passed legislation to officially make the Secret Service and gave them responsibility for protecting the President at all times.

    Name Meaning

    English: from Middle English sterre ‘star’ (Old English steorra), used, like the Old Norse Stjarna, as a nickname, but also occasionally as a personal name. The word was also used in a transferred sense of a patch of white hair on the forehead of a horse, and so perhaps the nickname denoted someone with a streak of white hair. This surname has been established in Ireland since the 17th century.

    English: in addition, the name may occasionally also have been topographic or habitational, referring to a house or inn distinguished by the sign of a star (see 2 above). Surnames derived from house and inn signs are rare in English.

    Jewish (Ashkenazic): variant of Star 1 and 3.
