My Grandfather was Charles Franklin Orr Born June 13, 1852 in Woodbury, Sumpter township, Cumberland County, IL. He could have been a descendent of your Charles F. Orr. The oldest Orr I have been able to find that I know is related to me is Augustin Orr, wife Elizabeth Miler.

Hi Scott, Tried to reach you. Charles F. (I.) ORR & son Thomas C. ORR & wife Sarah "Sallie" BARTLETT are direct ancestors. Have data on later gens, descendants, and other fam info. Thomas C. ORR had at least 2 sons: Wm. A. ORR, and Charles Finley (III.) ORR. Charles F. III had ch: 1). Richard Wentworth ORR b 1912 Ga, d 20 Nov 1976 Conyers, Rockdale Co GA (have his fam & descs); 2). Cecil H. ORR b 1915 Ga, d ? Ga (have fam); 3). Annie b abt 1918 Ga. Charles Finley (III) ORR was killed in a train-wreck/accident abt 1918 on TN/GA border. Wife got cash settlement, died from "child-birth complications" months after birth of dtr Annie, left 3 orphaned children. Think their Grandparents/relatives, the O'BRYANT (Chel?, Martha?)family of Dalton, Whitfield Co GA, took the orphans in for a while (in 1920 census there), then they were passed around to other rels. Lots of scandal regarding the death of their Mother (name?), since the insurance money for the children disappeared immed. Will exchange family data & photos etc. Contact: Steve <> or Kathleen <> Thanks, K.
