Charles W. Starr (1845-1889) & family in Oregon

Surnames: Starr, Hess
Looking for information on Charles Starr and his family. He was born in 1845 in Kentucky, and died in 1889 in Portland, but it's believed that he lived in Astoria with other Starrs in between. Indeed, his son John Starr was born in Astoria in 1865.

From John's death record, I have Charles Starr and Catherine Hess listed as his parents, but I am having an extremely hard time finding any information on their union, if indeed there even was one. John married Maude Veatch, but eventually divorced and moved to California.

What's strange is that it seems John didn't live with either Charles or Catherine in 1880, but rather with the Baskett family in Derry, Oregon. It's all a big mystery!

If anyone has any information on the Starr family in Astoria, I would greatly appreciate the help!
