Charles George Orrick b. 24 Nov 1874, Centralia, Marion Co, IL; d. 5 Oct 1929, Cairo, Alexander Co, IL; m. Katherine Ray Helton.His mother was Anne ?.Brother, John Orrick b. 1870.I believe his parents may have been born in Tennessee.I want to find his father and trace the line back further.Charles & Katherine had six children: Charles Harry, Kathleen, John Thomas, Ray Lafayette, Selden Robert, & William Frederick, all born in Cairo, IL.
