  • Biography*: Jonathan came to north Alabama with John Gibson in 1818, while it was still a territory. He bought land and returned to Georgia to marry Sarah Allen Glenn of Oglethorpe County. The Orrs first settled around a creek that became known as Crowd Around Creek -- now Scrounge Around Creek -- so named because there were so many of them before they spread around, each to his own holding. (The History and Genealogy of Some Pioneer Northern Alabama Families, by Mrs. Edward J. Churchill) Jonathan and his wife were the parents of eleven children. Four died young. They were Robert, Martha, Mary Elizabeth, and Henry. The four tiny graves are near those of the parents, in Orr Cemetery near Danville, AL. Jonathan Orr died possessed of a large estate, consisting of lands and slaves as well as money. He was one of the wealthiest men of Morgan County. The information in this report on the descendants of Jonathan Orr is the work of Ethel O. Patillo (Mrs. Pierce Patillo) of Hartselle, AL, as copied from the Decatur, AL public library by Dene Walls (Mrs. Clarence J. Walls) in 1986.
