Looking for parents and siblings of James Robert Orton, who married Ann Thyrza Thomason Nov. 20, 1856, in Jasper, Jasper County. She previously had been married to a Mr. Bradshaw and John Allen May. Archie Orton, a son of James and Ann Orton, married a Yates, and they moved from Jasper area to New Caney in Montgomery Co. They were grandparents of my husband, W.A. "Skeeter" Orton Jr. I'm also searching background of the Yates family -- I think the grandmother's first name was Nannie but I don't have names of her parents' names, siblings, or where they were from.
By the way, where is Orton Hill in Jasper County?

Hi, my aunt, Ola Lee was married to Jack Orton. They lived in the Montgomery County area. I know of one child, a daughter, Raye. Ola was born in 1893 in Cleveland TX. I don't know anything about Jack's family. Do you think there's a connection with your Ortons?

Archie C. Orton (b. April 11, 1867, Jasper Co. TX, d. Dec. 15, 1961, New Caney, Montgomery Co. TX) was the one who married Nannie Yates. One of their sons was Walter Archie Orton Sr. (my father-in-law). Other children were Joe B., Annie, Myrtle, Perry, Jack and Elinor.
Archie C. Orton's father was James Robert Orton, who was b. July 24, 1830 NC, died Feb. 6, 1904 in Jasper Co.
Zachariah B. Yates Jr., a brother to Nannie, also married an Orton in Jasper Co. -- Georgeanne Orton, who was Archie C. Orton's half-sister. She was daughter of James Robert Orton by 1st wife Amy Bradshaw. Archie's mother was James' 2nd wife, Ann Thomason.
So far I have tried without success to trace Zachariah Yates (wife unknown) and his parents Thomas Payne Yates and Abigail -- . Sure wish I knew Zachariah's wife's name and Abigail's maiden name.

The following is a short history of my Yates-Orton family connectons in Tennessee. NOAH ORTON married JANE HOWERN and they had 4 children; CARRIE BELL ORTON ( 07/15/1877-08/12/1957), ROBERT "CHUCK" ORTON, LULA ORTON, & WILLIAM "BILL" ORTON. ROBERT YATES married SARH CHASE and they had 9 children; ROBERT MEAD YATES, WILLIAM HAZEN YATES ( 10/12/1871-10/15/1932), SHERIDEN YATES, J. WHITT YATES, EMORY YATES, NORA YATES, LAURA YATES, LULA YATES, & WALTER YATES. Of these two families several children married members of the other family. My direct ancestors were William Hazen Yates and Carrie Bell Orton who were married on 09/15/1893. They had 12 children; Noah Franklin b. 11/10/1895, Rosie and Posie died at birth, Lillie Robinson b. 10/29/1899, Bobby died >3yo, James Cecil b. 10/30/1904, Earnest Clyde b. 12/03/1906, Mary died shortly after birth, Roxie Lee b. 07/17/1910, Nora Virginia b. 10/01/1912, Emory Eugene b. 01/23/1915 (my father), & John Lewie b. 06/15/1926. William Hazen's sister Lula Yates married Carrie's brother Bill Orton making her name Lula Orton. Carrie and Bill's sister Lula Orton married William and Lula's brother J. Whitt Yates making her name Lula Yates. Thus, Lula Yates became Lula Orton and Lula Orton became Lula Yates. William "Bill" Orton and Lula Yates had 2 children; Johnie b. 12/20/1909 & Pauline b. 01/15/1910. J. Whitt Yates and Lula Orton had one child named Bruce(?) or Naoh(?) b. 05/24/1909. J. Whitt's life is confusing. There is another record of him marrying Biddie Baker on 09/21/1897. Was Lula Yates his second wife? One of the two Lula Yates died 05/03/1910. Which one I don't know. I have information about the others ( birth, death, marriage, etc) for anyone interested. I would like to exchange additional information about anyone listed in this letter. MitchellYates@webtv.net
