My Price line continues through the only surviving daughter of Thomas Rees Price. Mary Price was the fourth child born to Thomas Rees Price and Ann "Annie" Maria Richards. On October 17, 1905 she married Benjamin Franklin Orr in Knoxville, Tennessee. Benjamin was a dentist who was from Jonesville, Virginia. Benjamin and Mary made their home in Knoxville, though they would later have homes in both Knoxville and Jonesville. On March 7, 1908 Benjamin and Mary had twin sons, Rees Price and James Wesley. Both boys were named after both their maternal and paternal grandfathers (Thomas Rees Price and James Wesley Orr). In the 1940's Benjamin and Mary divorced. She married a man named Bruce "Bill" Williams. Mary died on September 26, 1965 in Knoxville, Tennessee. She is buried in the family plot of her father, Thomas Rees Price, in Old Gray Cemetery.
