Notes

John Orea and his family immigrated from France to Virginia about 1688, and first settled with the French Huguenots in Virginia, moving about 1710/1711 to the piedmont area of Stafford County, Virginia. John died before 1734. In France, the family was considered of foreign lineage, said to have immigrated in the late 1400s from Ireland; the surname "Orre" is a Swedish surname, but "Orré" (with an accent) is considered Irish. John Orea's children spelled the surname Orrear, and the next generation Orear. Later O'Rear became the dominant American spelling. Descendants and relatives lived in Virginia, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas and elsewhere. The section of genealogi- cal records includes many biographical sketches completed on formats by descendants and relatives; some of the biogragraphical sketches and genealogical records have attached photographs.

Includes Orré, Oree, Orea, Orrear and other variant spellings.

Includes Barnard, Boble, Boles, Brownfield, Carnes, Cox, Darnaby, Gamble, Harris, Hefler, Hughes, Kirkland, McCann, Pollard, Rorer, Savage, Thiel, Warren and related families.
