I am curious as to what information you have about John W. Orand and the census. From what I had found, researching my family name, John W. Orand b.1793, married Charlotte linder in 1814. I had verified they had two sons, Nathaniel Linder Orand, b.1814 (my line of the family), and John W. Orand, b.1822. And two girls, Mary and Elizabeth. I have information about a James W. Orand, b. about 1818, but no record of him in the census.Though I am under the strong feeling he is the #2 son,have not proof, yet.I have never seen a Thomas or Tom in this time frame. I am interested in what ever information you have to help complete my research, and possible connect James to the brood.As he is the liniage that went to Texas.
