Henry and Lewis Orrick outlaws 1885-1899

I'm trying to find the parents of brothers Henry and Lewis Orrick who were outlaws from 1885-1899 in Iron, Reynolds, Wayne counties. Lewis was shot by a posse and Henry escaped from prison awaiting hanging.

Apparently their are several Orricks with middle or first names of Lewis or Henry.

There is a Minister Lewis Orrick who performed marriages from 1872-1890 whom might be their Dad.

The 1870 census shows a family of Lewis Orrick and wife Armealure Wilson who have sons Henry and Lewis, but I need more proof.

This is likely to require a trip to the courthouse or local library or historical society.

Can anyone offer help?
