Orange McOmber, biological father of Calvin D. McOmber Sr.

Orange McOmber as he looked in his more mature years. From Gaines, New York he followed his mother-in-law, Samantha Vorce, to Bountiful, later met and married Marinda Griffith as a polygamist second wife. He was a strong lumberman and Civil War Vet. Calvin Sr. did not know his father since he left the families and the church when Calvin was a young child. The name Orange comes from a strong protestant group in England. The British revere the men of Orange in their fight against the Catholic church.
