Wimpy Family Genealogy Forum
Jason: I have a DAR application on my Timothy Orr's father, John Orr. It showed Timothy's mother as Jerusha Wimpsey but I've done some research in NC and found that the Wimpy family of Johnston Co seems to come close to what I'm looking for. My Orrs were in Wake Co. next door to Johnston Co and Timothy Orr's daughter was named Jerusha.
I notice that David Wimpy Jr has a wife named Jarusha...it looks likely that they might have had a daughter by that name. The wife of John Orr would, most likely, have been born in the 1750s. The Orrs were in PA and then migrated through VA and probably arrived in NC by about 1760 or so. Most of the Orrs left NC for the Pendleton Dist SC after the RW. Any Advice?
