    JAMES ORR was born in Penns Valley, Centre County, Pa., in 1775. His boyhood was spent in Franklin County, Pa. He was married in 1797 to Miss Margaret Hawkins, of Chambersburg, Pa., and came at that time to reside in Washington. He was a carpenter by trade. Thirteen children were the fruits of his marriage, and four of his daughters became the wives of ministers. Rev. Albert O. Johnson, one of the martyred missionaries in India during the Sepoy rebellion, and Rev. W. F. Johnson, D.D., for 25 years a missionary in India, and now president of Biddle University, were his grandsons. Three of his daughters were married to Presbyterian ministers. He seems to have enjoyed the confidence of his neighbors and was called by them to several responsible positions -- among them were magistrate and bank director. As a member of Session he was wise and faithful, and as a Christian eminent and consistent. He died in peace, January 31, 1858.
