He was the last survivor of the Grand Army of the Republic Wetzel Compton Post #96 of Butler County, Ohio.
For the name, Clinton Orr there are two references - one served as a Private in the 184th Ohio Volunteer Infantry and another was a Private in Company I of the 195th Ohio Volunteer Infantry. The September 15, 1941 obituary of Jacob Inman reports that Orr was the last Civil War Veteran of Butler County, Ohio.
