Orr family in Iowa - 1800's
Posted by: Valerie Orr Date: March 11, 2001 at 05:44:19
  of 251

Father Fredrick or John (or combination of names)- born Ireland around late 1820's - moved to New York, then Iowa.
Mother, Ellen, born Ireland around late 1010's, moved to Penn, then Iowa.
Children
1) Mary/Alice, b. 1856?
2) James/Jane or Josephine, b. 1857?
3) John, b. 1859 or 1860?
4) Patrick, b. 1861?
5) Margaret, b. 1866?
6) William, b. 1868?
Could also be a Clarence in there somewhere.
I believe they were in Clayton County, Elkader, Iowa - Township of Highland.
John went to Canada - did not keep in touch with the family, although a brother Bill did visit a couple of times.
If anyone has any info, please let me know!
