I was recently given some new information about my family and I'd like to know if anyone knows anything about them. My family name is Oran but it's been listed in the census as all of the above and more. They were found in North Carolina then moved to Tennessee. Here are the names:
John Oran (born before or around 1765) with brothers named: Joseph, Samuel, Henry, and Jesse. There could be more siblings but that's all I have.
Next John (bef 1765) had a son named: Jacob (born June 24, 1783) in North Carolina (probably).
Jacob (1783) married someone named: Margaret or Polly (born Jan 7, 1786)or both. They had children that included: Katherine (born Jan 24, 1804), Sarah or Sally (born Jul 9, 1807), John (born Mar 04, 1809), Elizabeth (born Oct 21, 1811) Nancy (born Nov 25, 1814) and, Mary (born ?? 28, 1815). All dates are iffy.
Possibly John (1809) married (or maybe not) someone named: Anna Margaret (born Mar 04, 1821). These two are thought to be my GGG-Grandparents. They had at least two children named: William Lafayette (born Jan 16, 1849) and Jacob Thomas (born Jun 04,1853).
Anna (1821) and both boys, William and Jacob, were listed as living with Jacob (1783) and Polly in the 1860 census. I have no idea what Anna Margaret's last name was. Some believe it may have been Parmer or Palmer. She could also have been an Oran cousin I suppose.
Any help would be appreciated. Even wild guesses would help at this point!
