STRABANE MORNING POST:

December 20 1825

Died Wednesday, 14th instant, aged 70 years, MR. JAMES ORR, Merchant

January 1 1828

June 24 1834

On Thursday last, an inquest was held at Ballymagorry, by JOSEPH ORR, ESQ. Coroner for this county, to inquire into the death of ----- ADAMS, a young child of five or six years old. It appeared from the evidence that, as the ‘Tally-Ho’ Car was passing through Ballymagorry on the preceding evening the child was crossing the road, when it was knocked down by the leading horse, and the wheel passing over its head, caused immediate death. Several of the passengers who were on the car at the time, attended the inquest, and all agreed in acquitting the driver of any blame in the transaction. The Jury returned a verdict of “accidental death.”

April 7 1835

Died on Friday last, after a protracted illness which he bore with much resignation, WILLIAM ORR, ESQ., aged 50 years. Seldom, indeed, have we had occasion to record the death of an individual, so generally and deservedly esteemed as Mr Orr. The inhabitants of this town, as a mark of their respect, closed their shops and suspended every kind of business until after the funeral which took place yesterday morning at Ten o’clock. His remains were followed to the grave by all the respectable people in the town and neighbourhood.

Cut off in the prime of life, and midst of usefulness, the removal of Mr. Orr will long be felt in Strabane.

His extensive property (particularly in the town) gave him great influence, and that influence he invariably and promptly exercised in promoting every useful and benevolent object. He was an indulgent Landlord, a sincere and unostentatious friend, and his general disposition was characterized by integrity, independence, and generosity
