Reach #10

Map collector Charles S. Hartman of Port Elizabeth created several compilation maps of the Maurice River region. Many of these compilations were based on old maps. On Hartman's 1950 compilation map, Wm. Orr owned a farm on the eastern shores of the Maurice River. The map shows a barn on the property close to Otter Run between what is today Delsea Drive (Route 47) and the Maurice River. The year 1910 is noted on this location. (The spelling "Orr" is taken from this map. The spelling may have changed over the decades.)

Port Elizabeth resident Ken Camp has been hunting along the shores of the Maurice River all his life. He is familiar with the meadowlands that bordered this reach. The property belonged to the Ore/Orr family. "It used to be a dairy farm at one time. That was back when we were hunting those meadows," Camp said. 

Camp said that he knew the family, but the only recollection he had was that his neighbor Jess Vanaman married one of the Ore/Orr daughters. "They built a farm house up there," Camp recalled.
