Another Younger

Belle Starr

Many questions about Uncle Bruce.

Bruce Younger is a mystery man of the Old West. An uncle of the infamous Younger brothers, Bruce was apparently involved in some minor crimes over the years and may have made his way by gambling. Around 1880, he had a brief relationship—either a marriage or live-in—with Belle Starr. But after a couple of months, she married Sam Starr…and Bruce faded out. Reportedly, his mummified body was found in a New Mexico cave in 1889. How and when he died is unknown.
