Looking for parents and siblings of James Robert Orton, who married Ann Thyrza Thomason Nov. 20, 1856, in Jasper, Jasper County. She previously had been married to a Mr. Bradshaw and John Allen May. Archie Orton, a son of James and Ann Orton, married a Yates, and they moved from Jasper area to New Caney in Montgomery Co. They were grandparents of my husband, W.A. "Skeeter" Orton Jr. I'm also searching background of the Yates family -- I think the grandmother's first name was Nannie but I don't have names of her parents' names, siblings, or where they were from.
By the way, where is Orton Hill in Jasper County?
