About Arthur Orr
Arthur Orr appears to have been in Augusta County area for a very short while beginning abt. 1761, when some of his children were born there according to a familysearch submission. There do not appear to be any records for him in Chalkley's Records, but records do appear there for his sons James, William and Alexander.
Estate Records of Arthur Orr
The Washington Co., VA inventory for Arthur ORR, the Elder, was dated 25 May 1808 and returned to court on 23 Jun 1808. Therefore, Arthur ORR, the Elder, probably died in 1808, not 1807, as he was still alive on 30 Dec 1807 and his inventory was taken 25 May 1808, (Wash. Co., VA Will Book 3:71). Arthur ORR, the Elder’s, inventory was very short, only 13 items (including a Bible) which were appraised at $13.33 and cash notes valued at $1,414.11.
