Trying to Find Orrin A. Withey Origins
I am trying to find my great, great, great grandfather Orrin A. Withey whom I think came to America through New York, but I have no evidence of this. He is the great anchor point in going back further.
Orrin was born March 23, 1824 and he married "Eisabella" McGregor from Edinburgh,Scotland.
They had seven children:
Franklin S. 1851
George A. 1860- (He is the other anchor point as he had a son Melvel Everett who in turn had a son, my dad James Jerome.)
On my grandmother's side (Claire) are the Norwegians of the Odegard family and are well documented.
This is a photo of George A. Withey with my father James Jerome and his sister Mary Ann.
I have more family info to share in the next journal.
