Christopher Columbus Orrell

M, b. 13 March 1832, d. 28 August 1906
FatherJohn Orrell
     Christopher Columbus Orrell was also known as Christopher Columbus Orrell. He was born on 13 March 1832. He married Rebecca Anne Toler, daughter of Charles Toler and Caroline Tunstall, on 9 September 1875 at Mobile County, Alabama.1 Christopher Columbus Orrell died on 28 August 1906 at age 74. Christopher C. Orrell (1832-1906) was also born in North Carolina and was probably the brother of John C. Orrell (1830-1917). In 1874 (actually Sep 9, 1875), C.C. Orrell married Anna R. T. (Toler) (1856-1943), also a native of North Carolina. They had 10 children living in 1900: Rupert P. Orrell (1880-1944), John Toler Orrell (1880-1920+), Leo Orrell (1882-1941), Charles Orrell (1885-1940), Leslie C. Orrell (married Jun 28, 1896, Rufus G. Williams), Louise Orrell (1886-1908+), Anna Orrell (1888-1908+), Keith Orrell (180 [sic]-1908+), Arthur Orrell (1892-1908+), Stanley Austin? Orrell (1894-1908+), and Sidney Orrell (1901-1908+).

The Orrell family appears to have come to Jackson County, Miss., from Alabama between 1882 and 1884. The Orrell family eventually settled in Florala, a village, north of the Latimer community in western Jackson County (north of Ocean Spgs & Biloxi). At this time, Florala had a post office, store, school, and turpentine still. C.C. Orrell may have operated what was known as the Double Still which gave its name to the present day (1998) road, north of Latimer.

Christopher C. Orrell died intestate on Aug 28, 1906. His remains were interred in the White Plains Cemetery at Harrison County, Miss. After C.C. Orrell's demise, a forced heirship suit, Cause No. 1661 - Mrs. Anna Orrell, et al v. Toler Orrell, was filed in March 1908 in the Jackson County, Miss. Chancery Court. A Court appointed commission composed of T.E. Ramsay, Wesley Cox, and Albert L. Orrell divided the C.C. Orrell Estate into 12 shares of equal value. Names and Numbers were drawn lottery style and 2,000 acres in T5S-R9W and 800 acres in T6S-R9W were awarded. The 12 parcels ranged in size from 200 to 280 acres. An additional 450 acres in the southern area of T3S-R7W, which is now in George County, was sold and the proceeds distributed to the heirs.

In Jackson County Chancery Court Cause No. 1661, the Orrell family homestead was given as the S half of the NW quarter and the W half of the SE quarter of Section 2, T5S-R9W. These tracts were acquired from Alexander Scarborough (Deed Bk. 18, p. 422) and Catherine Cox (Deed Bk. 24, pp. 635-636) in December 1897 and February 1902 respectfully.

In January 1902, John C. Orrell, Christopher C. Orrell, and Patrick H. Orrell (died 1906) sold 12,000 acres of pine lands for $18,000 to Anthony Vizard (1837-1908) of New Orleans (and of Simpson & Vizard Naval Stores, Cuastic Soda, Soda Ash & co., 83 & 85 Magazine St., New Orleans, La). Of these tracts, 10,840 acres were situated in Jackson County and the remainder in Harrison County, Miss. It would appear that this sale marked the exit of the Orrell family from the naval stores business in Jackson County.

Patrick H. Orrell was probably the son of John C. or C.C. Orrell. He married Eugenie Lewis (1850-1932), the daughter of Alfred E. Lewis (1812-1885) and Ann R. Farrington (1821-1901), the builders of Lewis-Sha at Gautier, which today is known as Oldfields. (One of the oldest homes on the Gulf Coast.) The P.H. Orrell's were the parents of two children: Maud Mary Wilson Orrell (1875-1875) and Edwin Devendel Orrell (1876-1940). In her later life, Mrs. Eugenie Orrell owned a home and resided at present day 405 Ward Ave., Ocean Spgs.1,2
