About Our Family Research


Garrett Taylor Orr was born to Gertrude "Granny" Orr on Nov. 22, 1910 in Bracken Co., KY. Garett was raised on the farm in Mt. Olivet by Granny. He also, at one time lived with "Pap" Orr this was found to be Taylor Orr, Granny's father. Taylor Orr was born in abt. 1852 according to the 1910 Census(this being the 13th Census of the US). On this census he was married to Mary E. Wallace who was born in VA in abt 1853. They were married in Bracken Co., KY in 1884. On this Census Granny lived with Taylor and Mary. Also, living there were Mattie M. Orr, Granny's sister(aka Aunt Matt), Peachia A.(aka Peach), and Cute E..Upon calling Gertie in Toledo( Cute's Daughter) we found a long buried secret. Cute Ellis and Peachia Ann were not Garrett's half-sisters they were Mattie M.'s children. She had bore them out of wedlock. Thus on the 1910 Census they are listed as Orrs, also.
The only half sister Garrett had was Katherine(aka Teeny). Granny had her after she married "M"(Emery) Duncan.THey were married in 1914 in Germantown, KY. Four years after Garrett was born.
