William Jordan

William Jordan was born circa 1772 probably in Greenbrier County, (West) Virginia and died before May 1847 in (probably Jasper County) Indiana. He married Blanche Fullerton, daughter of William Fullerton in Greenbrier County, (West) Virginia, on February 20, 1794, in a ceremony performed by the Rev. John Alderson [marriage documents]. Blanche was born circa 1772 in Ireland and probably died in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, between 1830 and 1832.[1]

West Virginia

Documentation referring to William in Greenbrier County is scarce. He first appeared on the tax roles on May 14, 1794 (shortly after getting married); and in April of 1796 he recorded a survey made for him on a 220-acre property near Buffalo Mountain. William probably moved his family from Greenbrier County to Kanawha County shortly after March 21, 1798, when he appeared in the Greenbrier tax list for the last time. The final reference to William in Greenbrier Court records was on April 29, 1798, when he and his brother, James Jr., were paid for old wolf heads they had brought in. The first reference to William in Kanawha County is an entry in the court record on June 11, 1799, stating that he had received nine (dollars?) bounty for a wolf scalp.

In September 1800, "William Jurdin, Thomas Alsbery, & Jeremiah Ward" were ordered to "view a way for a road from Rock Camp on Mud River to the mouth of the said Mud river & from thence to the mouth of Grate Sandy." A Kanawha Court meeting on October 14, 1800 appointed William, his father James Jordan, and Allen Reece "to view a way from Joseph Climers to the rock camp on Mud river." The next month the Kanawha court ordered "the male labouring tithables from William Jurdins to Joseph Climers both included & do attend & assist the said surveyor [James Jordan] in clearing & repairing the said Road when required." This entry indicates that William Jordan was living at Rock Camp on Mud River (east of present-day Milton, WV) at the time (November 1800).[2]

William continued living (and probably farming) in Kanawha (later Cabell) County throughout the first quarter of the nineteenth century. In the autumn of 1827, William and Blanche, along with their children and grandchildren, moved from Cabell County into the rich farmlands that had recently been open for settlement in northwestern Indiana, in Tippecanoe County.

Indiana

The move to Indiana appears to have been a mixed blessing for William and Blanche. Although William was able to register 80 acres in Tippecanoe County in 1829, it didn't appear to meet his needs. By 1838 William had left his Tippecanoe homestead and was squatting on land to the north, in Jasper County, where he registered another 80 acres. William's wife Blanche probably died shortly after arriving in Indiana (see note 1 below), as William is found living with his bachelor son John in the 1840 census of Jasper County.

On the other hand, William's sons fared much better in their new digs. By the time of their deaths in the mid-late 1800's, William's three sons, James, John and William were well-to-do farmers and leading citizens in Tippecanoe, Jasper, and White counties, respectively. Three of William and Blanche's daughters continued west with their husbands. Eleanor (Burns) and Margaret (Coon) moved to Hickory County, Missouri, and Mary (Murphy) went to Dickinson County, Kansas. The other two daughters, Nancy (Erwin) and Elizabeth (Courtney) lived and died in Tippecanoe County.

Before leaving Cabell County, William sold his home and 300 acres to Joseph Malcomb for $2100. Malcomb paid $895 cash at the time and agreed to two further payments, one in 1829 for $580 and the final payment in 1832 of $625. We know that William returned to Cabell in October of 1831 to try to rectify problems that had cropped up with the deed. Eighty five of the original 300 acres, including 80 acres that William said he purchased from Leroy Newman, was being claimed by the heirs of John Morris as theirs. William eventually sued in Cabell Chancery court and was awarded the land, which he signed over to Joseph Malcomb in September of 1833.

William and his family kept in touch with their friends and relatives in Cabell County for many years after their departure. Besides William's trip back to Virginia in 1831, his son John returned in 1833 to sign legal papers regarding the land. We also know from old letters that William's son William and wife Catherine (Sexton) returned to Cabell more than once in the 1840s to visit.[3]

William Jordan died sometime before May 1847 probably in Jordan township, Jasper County, Indiana, where he lived with his son John. (Jordan township was named after John). No one has been able to locate William's grave, but he may have been one of the first people buried in Welsh Cemetery, Jordan township's only cemetery.

Evidence that William Jordan is the son of James and Sarah Jordan
  • A descendant of William Jordan (through his son William) matched a descendant of Andrew Jordan (through his son Jonathan) to a genetic distance of one after taking the 25-marker Y-DNA test, supporting the conclusion that William and Andrew were brothers.
  • The 1793 Greenbrier County PPT list shows James Jordan as having 3 tithes (white males 21 and over); in 1794, James loses one tithe and William Jordan appears on the PPT for the first time, implying that William was one of the tithes on James' list in 1793.
  • The 1801 PPT of Kanawha County identifies James Senr., James Junr, William, and John as all living together in the area of the Mud River.

Sources
    1 William Jordan's year of birth can be inferred from the Greenbrier County PPT list of 1793 and the 1820-1840 censuses, but no record of his birth date has been found. He died sometime before May 1847 when a deed was executed by one of his heirs, according to a lawsuit "Jordan v. Corey" (2 Indiana, 385.). William Jordan's burial location is unknown. Blanche's year of birth can only be surmised from the 1820 and 1830 censuses. She was most probably born in Ireland, since two daughters living in different states gave that as her location of birth in the 1880 census. Blanche probably died sometime after the 1830 census was taken and before March 1832, when the will of William Fullerton, her brother, was recorded. In his will he listed all of his living brothers and (one) sister, but Blanche was not among them. William Jordan and Blanche Fullerton's marriage is recorded mistakenly under the name "William Turden" in the Greenbrier County Record of Marriage, 1780-1849, West Virginia State Archives, Charleston, WV. The Greenbrier Historical Society, Inc. holds their original marriage bond.

    4 Proof that Eleanor is a daughter of William and Blanche comes from Tippecanoe County Court of Common Pleas appeal to the Indiana Supreme Court, November 1850, in which Eleanor, wife of John Burns, is named as one of the heirs of William Jordan. Marriage specifics taken from Cabell County, (West) Virginia marriage records; remaining infomation about the family gleaned from the obituaries of John Burns and David Patten Burns, and from the U.S. Census records for Tippecanoe County, Indiana; Polk County, Missouri; Santa Clara County, California and Breckinridge County, Kansas; as well as Missouri Marriage Records and California Death Records.
    5 Information provided by D. Majernik, Pittsburgh, PA, a great-great granddaughter of Elizabeth "Betsy"Burns and Zimri Stubbs. Zimri Stubbs was the son of John Stubbs and Rhoda Whitcomb.

They were Quakers and died in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Rhoda Whitcomb was a 4X great grandaughter of immigrant ancestors John Whitcomb who emigrated from England, and his wife Frances Cogan who emigrated from Taunton, Somersetshire, England. They died in Lancaster, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts.
    6 Dates and locations of birth, marriage and death for James and Nancy Jordan taken from Biographical Record and Portrait Album of Tippecanoe County, Indiana, published in 1889. Dates of birth for James found in censuses vary from 1796-1799, and for Nancy from 1800-1802.
    7 Dates of birth and death for John and Sarah Jordan taken from their tombstones. John's age in the 1850 and 1860 censuses places his birth from 1801 to 1803, and Cabell County tax records indicate he may have been born around 1800. If John's birth was in 1798, he could have been born in Greenbrier County; otherwise, he was born in Kanawha County. A biography of John's son (James) published in 1898 (History of the Catholic Church in Indiana) notes that John was born in 1802 in Greenbrier County. Location of John's marriage to Sarah Thomas is taken from the biography of son James. Iroquois County, Illinois, marriage records of that date were destroyed in a fire, so there is no extant documentation of their marriage. Jordan Township in Jasper County, Indiana, is said to have been named after John Jordan, who was one of its first settlers. Information on John's children comes from census records, Aunt Mollie's Diary: The Jordans of Carrpenters Grove by Rose Nesius, the aformentioned biography of James F. Jordan, Indiana marriage and death records, tombstones, Texas marriage records and death certificates and the obituary of William H. Jordan. Note that the dates on Addie M. Jordan's tombstone (10/17/1854-3/8/1939) differ from those on her death certificate and in her obituary (10/17/1856-2/21/1939).
    8 The only documentation of Elizabeth's birth date is in two census records--in 1820 she was probably 16-26; in 1840 she was 30-40--placing her birth sometime between 1800 and 1804. Elizabeth's husband, Andrew Courtney, remarried on March 6, 1844 and 1850 census records show that her four children were divided up and living with her sister Mary and brothers James and John. This makes it probable that Elizabeth died between 1840 and March 1844. Elizabeth and Andrew's marriage in 1830 is recorded in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, marriage records. Information on Elizabeth's children comes from census records, Tippecanoe County death records, and Aunt Mollie's Diary.
    9 Specifics on William and Catherine Jordan's births/deaths come from a family Bible, their obituaries, the History of White County, Indiana, and a host of other documents. Their marriage date is from the family Bible and Cabell County marriage records. Most indexes of Cabell County marriages incorrectly state the year as 1828 vice 1826, because the minister mistakenly entered the year 1828 at the top of the page, even though he signed his entry on January 1, 1827, a year earlier. The year 1826 is the same date of marriage as given in the family Bible. Several books contain information on the life of William Jordan and his family: Counties of White and Pulaski, Indiana (1883); History of the Town of Remington and Vicinity (1894); Aunt Mollie's Diary: The Jordans of Carpenters Grove (1995); and We Take This Opportunity to Write: Sexton, Coon and Porter Letters to the Jordans of White County, Indiana (2005); among others. Information on the children of William and Catherine Jordan is taken from the family Bible, obituaries, biographies, tombstones, state and county birth, death and marriage records, as well as the above references.
