Hi Suzanne, I left a message for you in Orr family Geneaolgy but I am not sure if you had a chance to read it. I am sure our Orr family is the same one your Robert Orr and my Jerimiah Orr were brother's. I know that some of this family lived in Bucombe county but I am not familar with alot of relatives. My grandfather Jerimiah(Jerry)S. Orr died when my father Andrew Wade Orr was about 3 yrs. old. So growing up I did not know alot of my Orr relatives. Also my father was very ill from the time I was 9 until he died in 1983. I did go to school with a Bobby Orr (Robert), I knew that we were related but wasn't sure how. He is now the Sheriff of Brevard. I also knew some of our Hamilton and a couple of the Cantrell's from that area. These are the dates I have for Robert,Sam,Perry (my ggrandfather) Jane and Mary Elizabeth Orr's parent. Jerimiah Orr(my ggggrandfather) married 3 March 1859 Nancy Euranie Cantrell, January 1835---28 May 1905. She and her husband re both buried at Davidson River Cemetery, Pisgah Forest, N.C. Do you know these people's spouse's and children's names? I know that Mary E. married a Campfeild and of course my gggrandf. married Rosa E. Brown. Thanks, Regina
