I read this particular posting with much interest. This is the second time I've seen the name of William H. Orr born Oct. 6, 1814 associated with the Merrell/Merrill Embry family. Yet in both instances I have not found any connection through marriage or otherwise.

In the library in Carrollton, Carroll, Ga., there is a paper in a vertical file titled "Vital Statistics from the Merrell Embry Bible" with lists some marriages, births, and deaths of Embry, Word, Tuck, Childress, Chatham, McGarriety, Goolsby, Owen and this single Orr entry for birth. I believe that this William is a brother to my great-great grandfather Matthew Jefferson Orr who was a plantation farmer before the Civil War in Carroll County. All I have for this brother is the name of William Henry Orr and the exact birhdate which shows up in these two different Bibles.

Would appreciate knowing anything about William H. Orr as I've looked for years for anything that could lead me to discovering more about him. Thanks!
