The Robert Orrick who was born as a slave in 1841, so his mom is Evalina apparently. Does anyone research this family?
I'm trying to find out if Evalina was married to John Orrick like the 1870 census appears to show, although they are mistranslated as Orrit.
Apparently Evalina / Evelina was also wealthy. I wonder how this was acquired, possibly by death of a spouse.
