The Orrs of Texas/Oklahoma Updated December 1, 2000
About Our Family Research
I am just beginning research on my family. My family is from the area of Hollis, Oklahoma and Wellington, Texas. I have information only back to my great-grandparents. My paternal great grandfather was John Wesley Orr, who was married to Ola Mae King and lived in Wellington. My grandparents were Varner King Orr and Alice Lee Castleman (called Dolly) who lived on a farm near Vinson, Okla. My father (Varner King Orr, Jr.) was born in Harmon County, Oklahoma on December 17, 1928. My mother is Mary Louise Alexander who was born in Collingsworth County on June 21,1932.
