I would appreciate a look-up for Elmer/Elmir S. Orr, who died 6 Sep 1977 in Marymount Hospital, in Garfield Heights. He was born 13 Mar 1897. He is "Elmir" on the 1900, "Elmer" on the 1910, 1920 and 1930 census, if I have him correctly. Given how often he moved, I wonder if the one I found on the SSDI and Ohio Deaths is him.
This is what I have found. Given how rare "Elmir" is, the middle initial "S" and where he was in 1930, I'd bet 5:1 the "Elmir" on the SSDI is the same one, but an obit would be really nice, especially if it mentions a first wife, Adna/Adena May/Mae Brown, or a spell in Siskiyou County, California as a youth.

In 1920 the couple are living in Yreka, Siskiyou, California. Adna is fudging her age a bit. She was probably older than Elmer, and, considering she was a U of N graduate, probably better educated.

This looks like him in 1930 in Rocky River, Cuyahoga, Ohio:

Elmer and Esther both have "33" in their "Age at first marriage column, which in Elmer's case is wrong. Elmer's middle initial, birth state and occupation all fit the 1920 entry.
