I am researching my mother's line for her. I know her father Roe Donald Orin, died in 1952 when she was a child, therefore little is known about his line. He was apparently estranged from the rest of his family--Orin & Emerson. Here's what I have, working backwards (sorry if the format isn't the best; I'm a bit of a newbie to the proper Gen format):
Roe D. Orin - Died 12/1952, in Flint, Michigan-wife-Elsie M. Frollo--5 children-all still currently living.
Roe (born abt. 1911 or 1912?) was the son of John Orin (b.January 21, 1887 in Evansburg, OH. d-January 1919, in Newcomerstown, OH). John married Harriet (Hattie) Grace Emerson (b-October 23, 1891, d-March 24, 1957) m. on October 06, 1909, in Evansburg, Coshocton County, Ohio. 2 children Roe & Margaret.
John Orin was the son of James W. Orin (b-December 1851, in OH, d-February 13, 1932, in Isleta, Coshocton Co., OH). In OH in 1874, James W. Orin married Harriet Norris (b-November 1852,in OH, d-September 12, 1927, in OH). James W. & Harriet had at least 2 children, John (above) and Esther Orin (b-October 1888).
What I have, definitively, above has been gleaned by me from the census archives, and some Coshocton, Co., OH newspaper articles linked thru Ancestry.com.
I am reasonably sure, but not certain, that James W Orin's
parents were John (b-abt. 1825, OH) & Margaret Orin (b-abt. 1829, OH).
and that John & Margaret's kids included: James W.(b-abt December 1851), Amaretta (b-Abt. 1854), Benjamin (Franklin) (b-Abt. 1860), Charles (b-Abt. 1865), John K (Clinton) (b-Abt. 1867), Carrie (b-Abt. 1871), Gertrude (b-Abt. 1874).
With that many offspring, I thought someone out there may have some info to fill in my historical blanks, and/or have some family photos/data to share. We have absolutely no photos of the Orins, w/the exception of a few of Roe before he died in his early 40s.
I do know that a bit after Roe's father John Orin died in 1919 (to the Spanish Flu Epidemic), Roe was raised by his grandparents, James W. Orin & Harriet (Norris) Orin, and was no longer in touch w/his Mother (Hattie G. Emerson) who had remarried (I can't find the new name) and his sister, Margaret.
Sorry this ran long, but it's all I've got on my grandfather's line. But, I would be THRILLED to find a tie into someone else's family tree on the Orin side.
I look forward to hearing from a distant Orin cousin *g*
