||Aghadowey, Londonderry 1800-1840
| PAUL Orr (about 1764-?) was the son of Captain Orr and his wife Mary Faeth. Paul's wife was Isabelle Boyd, born 1765, possibly in Aghadowey Parish, Townland of Rhee. I have info (and will share). You can get info at www.orrreunion.com. I cannot figure who Paul Orr or Isabelle Boyd's parents are. There is a Captain Orr in the Aghadowey Presbyterian Church Cemetery, but the ages are wrong. Paul "owned a mill on the reefs" and supposedly went to America, but he was estranged from his family so we are not sure of that. Paul and Isabelle's children were James (m Jane Reed), William (m Jennie Adams), George (m Elizabeth Brown), Eliza (m William McMurtry and stayed in Ireland), Ann (m Valentine Shirley), Martha (m John Mitchell and stayed in Ireland), Isabelle (m Ephraim Campbell) and Robert, who died as a young man.
