William Morlan Orr, son of Joseph and Jane Orr, is my maternal great great grandfather. He was born in Columbiana County, Ohio on April 28, 1813. William married Nancy Cannon on October 15, 1835 in Columbiana County, Ohio. She was the daughter of Lindsay Cannon and Elizabeth Fife.
William and Nancy raised a family of five children, their youngest, a daughter, Lucinda, was my great grandmother. The family lived on a farm in Elkrun Township, Columbiana County, Ohio on land probably owned by William's or Nancy's father as both owned property in Elkrun.
William died at the young age of thirty-five, on February 11, 1849 and is buried with the Orr family in Carlisle Cemetery, Elkrun Township, Columbiana County, Ohio.
