I looked in the Harford Co. Marriages and John Orr wasn't there. There
was no index for Cecil Co.
What I do know is that John and Mary Orr lived in Montgomery Co., OH
before he received his land grant in Allen Co. on March 15, 1837. If I
am not mistaken, William Bechdolt was also in Montgomery Co. I have
been told that The Bechdolts were in PA and then Frederick Co., MD. I
wonder if these families moved together. The woman who told me about
the Bechdolts said her family came from Germany with a Bechdolt and
landed in Philadelphia. The Bechdolt married into her family and all of
them moved to Md and then to OH. Her family was also in Auglaize Co.
