Harbison and squad of Confederate soldiers from Co. D 3rd Tennessee Infantry." The Orr graves are located a few miles north of Benton on the David Holden farm.

It is reported that graves were dug under the trees and that the limbs were sawed or chopped off by neighbors and the bodies dropped into the graves. The boys were sons of Robert and Omelia Orr. Their brother, W .F. Orr, it is reported, had additional encounters with the Confederates. Following the war. Lt.
