Anecdote

Note: Orr-Biog-4: Great Grandmother Orr ‎(Ann Aitkenhead)‎ was a large woman and they tell of her being able to butcher a hog and carry it on her shoulders. They lived on Indian Creek near Cave Springs and it was a trail that Indians constantly travelled. THey stopped at their cabin to help themselves to food and whatever else they wanted. One day Grandma's brother John ‎(Orr)‎ then about 5 picked up the old Indian's gun, ‎(he had set down to hunt for tobacco in the house)‎ The old Indian began to scream and yell "it's totted, it's totted, ‎(meaning loaded)‎. One day they found the freshly butchered pork in the shed and after Great Grandma ‎(Ann Aitkenhead)‎ Orr had told them she had no meat. They turned around and said "white squaw lie, plenty hoggy meat" to which Great Grandma replied "no lie, man's meat, no woman's meat" but they took it anyway. Another time Grandma ‎(Annie Orr)‎ Ware told of the long string of Indians marching in single file by their cabin, one squaw dropped out, went beside the shed, had her baby and fell into line without missing a step.
