Brazeal and Mary Jane are buried at Bee Creek Cemetery south of Mincy, MO. Buried there is Brazeal William Orr 1857-1952, Mary Jane Orr 1862-1929, Fred Orr 1889-1889 and Samuel Orr 1884-1939.
Brazeal and Mary Jane were married and Fred and Samuel were two of their sons. Attached is a picture of their family, Brazeal is seated in front with Mary Jane on the right. Brazeal and Mary Jane are my Great Grandparents. Their son Charlie is my grandfather, 1898-1969, buried between Kirbyville and Branson. There are also a couple of unmarked graves at Bee Creek from another family.
