Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 13838

Question:

The Orwans were gunsmiths in Pennsylvania (New Bloomfield and Carlisle and also Seneca, New York)and are my ancestors. Frederick, John, Charles and their father Reinhart were all involved. I have found pictures of their work on line and also a patent Issued to Frederick in 1815 has appeared on Ebay. I would appreciate any information on this elusive family.
