My grandfather was John Orient (but maybe not the same one you are referring to). Where do you live? Are there any other Orients there? In Pittburgh, there are a number of Orients, and some of my relatives have pulled together some sort of family tree.

Jeff- There is probably a connection via my grandmothers 2nd marriage to a Michael Orient in Braddock, Pa. They were both buried in Monongahela Cemetery around 1945-1947. I never met Mike (as my father called him) He died about 2 years before I was born in 1945 I think. My grandmothers maiden name was Emma McWilliams -1st marriage to a John Koelsch(died before I was born also.) My father was Paul Koelsch grew up around Braddock/Donora. I think Mike worked for one of the steel mills. Maybe J & L. I know he had at least one son but have pictures of family picnics, and Mike and at least 2 young fellows swimming I think. Iknow they used to go "rowing" (possiblyat the Schuylkill River In Philadelphia- competetively. I also have pictures of family friends picnics The pictures include Emma(mygrandmother) , my grandfather and Mike Orient amongst others. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone in your family. My dad was 43 when I was born so we kind of skipped a generation I think. I know he commented he liked Mike and as a young girl, I remember going to the cemetery with him. Please E mail me@ barrows@scnc.whiteford.k12.mi.org. If that does not work, please post amessage back here and I will communicate back with you. Thanks much. Would love to hear from you. H/oping to learn more about the McWilliams/Koelsch/Orient families. Thanks -gretchen koelsch barrows

Gretchen,

Tried to reach you by e-mail but didn't have any luck.

My mother's family came from a town called Metzenseifen in what was then Austria-Hungary. This side the Orient family, including Michael Joseph Orient. His first wife was Agnes Hipp. I found his burial record on line for Braddock Cemetery and always surmised that he had a second wife with whom
he was buried.

If you want more information, you can find some at my web site:

I can send you all I have on the Orient's via GEDCOM as well.

Hope to hear from you.

Jeff, Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I've been pretty sick. The Orient family is from Chicago, Illinois. There was different spellings of Orient. Some dropped the i and others dropped the e. Jim thinks his dad was born in Omaha and lived in an orphanage for awhile. He believes his mom was born in Philly. Any help is appreciated.
