Thank you so much for posting the information about my gggrandmother, Delphina Orem!I have only recently found information on her parents, but did not have all of the siblings names, so am very happy to see your post!
I'm listowner of the OREM & ORAM mailing lists, and was just checking links to various family resources for a 'welcome' post I send to new subscribers, and was thrilled to see something on OREMs in Caldwell County...also do the county list.
Delphina's father was named JOSHUA ORAM...they alternated between the two spellings in these generations.
Just for the record, I'll post, below, all that I have been able to find on this family.I'll contact the Historical Society in Caldwell County to see if I can arrange to get copies of the section of the book that references the OREM/ORAM family.
Again, thank you for taking that "long shot" and posting this wonderful information to the OREM GenForum board!
