|An old Orr Family story tells of three MacGregor brothers who fled to the Isle of Mann and then on to the New World (1700's?).One settled in Virginia and the other two in Pennsylvania.My ancestors are from one of the brothers in Pennsylvania. I have traced my family ack to James Cyrus Orr who married Armina Shaw.If any of this sounds familiar please contact us!|
The Rutter side of our family is from Australia.We believe the name was once Van Ruetter.

Carman from New Brunswick,Davenport from Oakland,MacDowell from Australia, Martin from Livingston Montana, Tranbarger from Kansas,
Please look at our Family Tree to see if any names are familar, would love to hear from you!
