[NOTE: This Richard Jordan was born at the very least before 1747 but where?]


Is below Benjamin Jordan SR any relation to above Richard Jordan?

Note: In 1765 a Benjamin Jordan SR is residing in Pitt Co, NC.

The following Benjamin "Jr." in 1774 is selling land to Thomas Jordan in Nansemond Co, VA and it might be he is related to the Thomas Jordan family from Isle of Wight Co, VA that settled in Nansemond Co, VA who were Quakers. Who are Benjamin Jordan Sr's descendants?
