« on: Wednesday 15 June 05 12:49 BST (UK) »

Alf:
If you haven't already, you might want to check Ros Davies'excellent site for Down. She has an extensive listing of Orrs. There are also maps which can help locate townlandsfor you. I am sure you will get some leads. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~rosdavies/SURNAMES/Orr.htm

Another site is Caora where you can see head-of-household listings for the 1901 census in Down. http://www.caora.net/find.php

Good luck!

That is correct, May, wife of late Harold Orr, cousin of mine

Could I asked, do you live near to Killinchy Presbyterian Non Subscribing because I am after a favor. I now live in England, and I was not into family history when I lived in Castlereagh. I am  looking for some one to do the Monumental Inscriptions for each of  the Orr Graves in the Churchyard. there are not many Do not to worry if you can not do it

Hi,

Catherine McCormick was a sister of my Gt. Grandfather.

As the Orr and McCormick families were members of the Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church in Killinchy (not the Presbyterian Church) the marriage record for David and Catherine will be in the records of that congregation.

Here are the details off the family gravestone from Clarke's Gravestone inscriptions.  There was at least one burial since - Wm. I think he died in the late 1970s but can confirm the exact date.

Killinchy Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Graveyard:

ORR

[In a low railed enclosure,]

In loving memory of Catherine Orr, wife of David Orr, Craigarusky, who died 16th Jan. 1917 aged 58 years
Also their daugther Elizabeth, who died 20th July 1898 aged 13 years.
Also the above David Orr who died 23rd Feb. 1933 aged 94 years.
Also their son Henry who died in Canada 5th June 1954, result of wounds received during 1914-18 war.
Also their son Robert S. who died in Canada 8th Aug. 1965. And his wife Verna, died in Canada 7th Dec. 1962.
Also their son Joseph, died 3rd April 1972. Also his wife Ida, died in U.S.A. 7th Nov. 1962.
