looking for info on John Joseph Orr 1860 - 1941

John Joseph Orr, born May 22, 1860 in USA, died May 26,1941 in Souris Manitoba.  Married Mabel Merriet (Merrit) - she was born in England in 1877.

They had 4 children - Margaret Ardine, William Fredrick, Pearl and Kenneth Joseph James. Pearl and Ken were  possibly born in Manitoba.  Margaret and William are both several years older - may have come from England with Mabel.  Possibly Mabel was married to a Merriet (Merrit) and that is not her maiden name.  In one census she is called 'head of the house'.

I have a photo of John Joseph with his 4 grown children.  Not sure how to post it.   Can anyone help me track John Joseph?

Thanks.
