May 1654 in Isle of Wight Co, VA, daughter of Christopher REYNOLDS and Elizabeth MATHEWS.  She was born ca 1639 in Isle of Wight Co, VA, and died Bet. 1668 - 1678 in Isle of Wight Co, VA.  He married (2) Alice Bef. 30 Mar 1679 in VA.  She died Bef. 01 Mar 1685/86 in Isle of Wight Co, VA.

 Notes for Richard JORDAN I:

This website is from the "original" research of three cousins:  Maudine Brazier (deceased), Janet Burks and Rene Jordan from the years 1978 to present date.   This is our newest revised Jordan Family website.  Our research is documented and this can be found in the notes sections unless otherwise stated.  We will be glad to answer any questions and/or take you through our steps of conducting this research.  Please email us at the following addresses:
Janet Burks           jm@burksfam.net
Rene Jordan         renejordan@hotmail.com

Our lineage is further proven by The Order of First Families of Virginia in their excellent publication "Adventures of Purse and Person Virginia 1607-1624/5" revised and edited by Virginia M. Meyer and John Frederick Dorman, F.A.S.G., 1987.

In the "Valentine Papers" by Edward Valentine, he  states " It has been impossible to identify the "orgin" of Richard Jordan of Surry Co., who died in 1699.  However, the Surry records show a numerous descent from him." Vol IV p 2273.   In 1996 we found in the Surry Co, VA land records documentation that Richard Jordan I was indeed the father of our Richard Jordan II: 

     1.  Richard Jordan Sr. (I) mentioned in the Will of Christopher Reynolds Sr.

     2.  In  the land patent of Christopher Jr

     3.  In the Will of  John Reynolds brother to Elizabeth Jordan in 1669 was the same Richard Jordan (I) that married in 1654 to Elizabeth Reynolds (daughter of Christopher Reynolds) and lived in Isle of Wight Co, VA.  Elizabeth's husband Richard Jordan(I) removed later in life to Surry Co, VA where he died.     

            The three authors of this original research in 1996 gave each of the Richard's roman numbers I,II,III after their names in order to separate them.   Please note county records do not refer to these men as I, II or III.   Leading to further confusion (in past genealogy publications) both Richard I and his son Richard II both married women named Elizabeth. 

       There is NOT any documented proof or evidence at this time showing the parents of our Richard Jordan I who was born at the least before 1625.  He probably was born around 1620.   He first appears in March of 1639 witnessing a deed in Isle of Wight Co, VA.  The standard legal age to witness a deed in this time period was 13 or 14.  

        Also there is NOT any documentation at this revision whatsoever supporting the "assumptions"  that Richard Jordan SR (I) is the son of one Thomas Jordan born ca 1605 England nor is Richard  a descendant of Samuel Jordan, ancient planter,  who resided VA in 1610.   

     Some Jordan webpages on the internet  list this connection but be warned they are just "assuming" that lineage.   Richard could have arrived in America as a child as so many often were.  He could have arrived in America on one of Christopher Reynolds many trips to England. 

       Records show that Thomas Jordan Sr. born ca 1605 who came to America on the ship "Diana" and living in VA 1623 died by 1644 in Nansemond Co, VA.    This Thomas Jordan married unknown and  has TWO PROVEN CHILDREN DOCUMENTED in the Quaker records:   Thomas Jordan JR. born 1634 and his sister    Margaret Jordan.   Thomas Jordan Jr.  married Margaret Brasseur and died in 1699.  Their proven children were: Thomas Jordan III b 1660 , John, James , Robert, RICHARD born 1670 died 1724 Isle of Wight Co, VA who married Rebecca Ratcliff, Joseph, Benjamin, Matthew, Samuel and Joshua. They were Quakers and lived in Nansemond Co. and Isle of Wight Co, VA.

        We would like to personally thank Mr.  Robert A." Bob"  Jordan author of  "Jordan Journal", published 1996.   A well documented genealogy for the George and Arthur Jordan families of VA, NC and IND from 1634.   Bob has been of major assistance to our Jordan family file coordinator although DNA proves we are not related.  Bob's email address is  jorbob@msn.com  for those who might descend from this Jordan family.

NOTE:  If you are a male Jordan and would like to be participate in our Jordan family DNA testing project please email Bob Jordan at above address for details.   Please see the lineages of our proven genetic DNA cousins .

        Although family names and some migration patterns are similar to our own lineage we have not found any connection to these other early Jordan lines above residing in Isle of Wight or Surry Co, VA.

     If anyone reading these pages has a document or evidence as proof to this "assumption"  we would greatly appreciate knowing the reference or source by email to Janet Burks jm@burksfam.net    

     The authors have taken every step possible to document the following  lineages on this webpage unless you see a note stating otherwise.   Many years have been spent digging through dusty courthouses, cemeteries, interviewing family members and obtaining documents proving our lineage.  This file will be updated as new data is found whether it is an addition or correction.   

     You will find in the notes sections of the respective later descendants names and email addresses of those who have graciously given their own research to share with you as well.   

 NOTE:   Therefore these lineages and material on our family webpage may not be copied nor placed on any commercial or personal website without the permission of the Jordan Family present webmaster.   We ask you to respect our many years of research which we share with this request.

[Special Note:  Both patents were filed in May of 1679.   Why would Sessums pay Richard I and his family passage?    It appears this is Richard Jordan II, his wife and young son Richard Jordan III.   This mystery might be explained by the theory that Sessums had paid passage for a trip back from England.   It is proven that Christopher Reynolds made several trips to England before his death in 1655.    Perhaps they were visiting  relatives overseas.     Also Sarah CASEY whose Mother was Jane Reynolds granddaughter of  Christopher Reynolds Sr.  married a John SMELLY whose Will was probated 7 Feb 1765 in Isle of Wight Co,VA Bk 7 p 369.  What relation was he to Katherine SMELLY above?]

Marriage Notes for Richard JORDAN and Elizabeth REYNOLDS:

"Marriages of Isle of Wight Co, VA 1628-1800" Bk A p 46,  Bk 2 p 62

Notes for Alice:

Isle of Wight Co, VA
    Our first record showing that Alice was married to Richard Jordan is by December of 1679.   It is not certain when they were married or the number of years.   Elizabeth Reynolds Jordan  Richard's first wife probably died after the birth of their son John.    

     Records do not show any children from the marriage of Richard and Alice.   Thus, Alice was probably a widow and had adult age children by a previous marriage when she married Richard Jordan.  The marriage did not end well.

[PLEASE NOTE:  "These Jordan were Here" by Octavia Perry- PLEASE USE THIS PUBLICATION WITH GREAT CAUTION.  DOCUMENT THE LINES WITHIN THIS BOOK WITH YOUR OWN GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH.  THANK YOU!]

Mrs. Perry in her book "These Jordans were Here" p. 81 states... "At the same time her two sons, John and Solomon Jordan, were spoken of as Orphans by her friends and neighbors, when they applied for Jane to be made administrator of her husband John Jordan's estate, who died intestate."  Also Robert A. Jordan in his book "Jordan Journal" on p. A-10 makes this same assertion; however, it is believed that he based this on Mrs. Perry's book.  Since the deed abstract does not say this we need a source proving this statement.  Positive proof of John II as his son is available but not for Solomon-- the only proof is in his association and tranactions which speak of family relationship.

Notes for Richard JORDAN III:

      Richard Jordan,[III] was born circa 1672 and died in 1751 at about 78 years old.  He probably was married more than once and surely had more children than the three sons named in his Will of 1751.  He lived a long and prosperous life.   To this day longevity runs in our Jordan family.

Research from John S. Willis (deceased)by this permission.
If you have any questions please don't email John S Willis (deceased).  Please email Janet Burks  jm@burksfam.net for any corrections or additions

The research for John II and his children and grandchildren was researched by John S Willis and is of necessity a work in progress. If you have any questions please don't email John S Willis (deceased).  Please email Janet Burks  jm@burksfam.net for any corrections or additions. Much of the data came from published abstracts and information but also from other researchers and sources.  Where the genealogy was not positivly documented, then it was noted.  This is published to aid research of not only these ancestors but to extend the line of John II's into the 1700's in the hope that additional research will connect him to the ancestors of members of the Jordan JG3 DNA Research Group.  Any additional information on these ancestor and their descendants will be greatly appreciated.

" These Jordans Were Here"  by Octavia Jordan Perry, 1969
p. 83: "In JOHN JORDAN'S Will recorded in Hyde Precinct, he states that he had previously deeded to his son CHARLES land bought of Charles Sowell in Chowan Precinct; deeded to EDWARD 100 acres of land in the precinct of Chowan Sound;  and deeded to JOHN the aforesaid 130 acres of land on Old Town Creek, Chowan Precinct. In this deed he also bequeaths to his grandsons, CHARLES JORDAN and EDWARD GARRELL."

[We have been unable to find this will.  We have found the deeds to his sons CHARLES, JOHN AND EDWARD and they are listed above.  We know of several of his grandsons named CHARLES but not EDWARD GARRELL that Mrs Perry referring to.  The many transactions above are strong evidence that CHARLES, JOHN AND EDWARD are his sons but if that deed existed it would be a positive confirmation.  It is believed that Mrs. Perry "assumed"  this Will since she knew of the land transactions and of a Will in Hyde for a JOHN JORDAN.  However that Will in Hyde Precinct in Bath Co., probated 31 Dec. 1719, letter granted 23 April 1720, named his his daughters Margaret Foreman and Mary Jordan and under age son JOHN JORDAN.  He provided for John White to be guardian and trustee for JOHN until age 21 or recovers his perfect eyesight.  It is obvious that this is not the JOHN JORDAN(II) in Bertie Co.

Mrs. Perry in her book "These Jordans were Here" p. 81 states... "At the same time her two sons, John and Solomon Jordan, were spoken of as Orphans by her friends and neighbors, when they applied for Jane to be made administrator of her husband John Jordan's estate, who died intestate."  Also Robert A. Jordan in his book "Jordan Journal" on p. A-10 makes this same assertion; however, it is believed that he based this on Mrs. Perry's book.  Since the deed abstract does not say this we need a source proving this statement.  Positive proof of John II as his son is available but not for Solomon-- the only proof is in his association and tranactions which speak of family relationship.

Since Solomon's wife Katherine SNELL was born in Berkley which became Chowan Co. it is likely that he was in Chowan when they married.  With her being born 1689 their marrage likely was about 1705-1710

     FROM THE AUTHORS:  Joseph Jordan was born in Surry Co, VA although we are not certain when he was born.    He lived his entire life in Surry Co, VA and died there in 1770.   In his Will below he names son Stephen (of legal age) and his two youngest children Richard and William(not of age).   He also states " ALL MY CHILDREN" plainly acknowledging that he has older children not named in this Will.  It appears he was probably married at least twice.    Joseph's brother William Jordan died and left Will in 1758 naming two older sons of Joseph's,  Henry and Jesse Jordan.    These five sons are all that we can prove at this time.  Hopefully we will be able to document  daughters as well as other sons of Joseph in future research.

The submitter of this information was Helen Benac, 793 Pirates Rest Road, North Fort Myers, FL 33917.  The date of birth for Charles and Abigail and their childen is this LDS IGI file.  We have been unable to locate this lady and cannot vouch for the accuracy of these dates and are unsure whether they were taken from a family Bible or unpublished Quaker birth records.

Abigail White was daughter (acc. to Ancestral File) of Henry White who m. 10 July, 1681, Perquimans MM Demaris Morison.  We have not located an authenticated source for the marriage date and her maiden name.  Published records of Henry White in Hinshaw regarding the family of Henry White do not include a daughter Abigail.  The Whites were in Perquimens and records show the two families well aquainted so such a marriage is logical but the evidence is not been found.

In Georgia. 1755-1711 p. 101. The original survey is found in Plat Book C, p. 87; the grant is found in Grant Book I, p. 184)  [This would seem to indicate that Charles Jordan was in Georgia by 1766. Fortson & Bryant, Entry Of Claims for Georgia Landholders. 1733-1755 pp. 120,203, proves that one Charles Jordan owned 50 acres of land in Augusta as early as 1757. On 22 July, 1757, Charles Jorden witnessed a deed at Augusta.

Charles Jordan at the Seige of Augusta.]

Abstract of Wills of Perquimans Co., NC.,  FTM CD524
White, William, May 10, 1772; Aug. 18, 1772. Sons Joseph, William and Josiah, daughters Elizabeth Jordan, Margaret Toms and Sarah White; wife Margaret and sons Joseph and William, Exrs. Test, Jos. Wilson, E. Newby, Thos. Moor.

White, Margaret, 21st. day, 5th mo., 1778; Jany. Court 1790. Sons William and Josiah, grand-daughter Margaret White, daughter Margaret Jones, grand-daughters Rebecca, Margaret and Elizabeth Toms, daughter Sarah Robinson, grand-children Edward, Millicent, Elizabeth and Sarah White, grand-sons Robert and William Jordan, grand-daughtcr Margaret Jordan, niece Ann Elliott, grand-son Jesse White (children of son Joseph) ; sons William and Josiah, Exrs.  William Bond, Job Bond, Exum Newby.

These two Wills show that William White was married to Margaret had a daughter Elizabeth that married a Jordan and she was an heir to his estate.  Also Elizabeth Jordan had children Robert, William and Margaret but Elizabeth's son Charles was not mentioned in her mother Margaret's Will.  The Will of Elizabeth's father-in-law Charles Jordan's Will probated in 1773 named her son Charles as an heir but not any of the other 3 children.  This could be because in 1771 when Charles' Will was written in 1771 only Charles had been born or it could be that Charles only included the two grandchilden that were named Charles for him.  Margaret may have omitted Charles from the grandchildren sharing her estate since he had already inherited from his grandfather Charles.  If we knew the grandchildren ages this might be clearer.

35.  William6 JORDAN (Joseph5, Richard4, Richard3, Richard2, Unknown1) was born 02 Jan 1762 in Surry Co, VA, and died 18 Sep 1848 in Randolph Co, AL.  He married Delilah ca 1782 in Probably NC.  She was born 1760 in NC or SC, and died 12 Oct 1854 in Randolph Co, AL.
Notes for William JORDAN:
      Thanks to cousin Maudine Brazier she found our ancestor William Jordan pension who was born in Surry Co, VA.  He was eight years old when his father Joseph Jordan died.    After Joseph's death [See Will of Joseph Jordan] his mother sold the last acreage of  land in December 1772 to Francis Sowersby and removed to NC.   We know William had an older brother living in Pitt or Edgecombe Co, NC during the American Revolution.   This brother paid for William a substitute named GEORGE HARRIS for a few months of the American Revolution.

      It appears one Richard Jordan of Pitt Co, NC born 1759 Surry Co, VA who served in the American Revolution with Capt. John Batts, listed his mother's house as burning and his brother-in-law as BURRELL EDWARDS could be one of the brothers of William Jordan.  He also lived in Anson Co, NC.  There in 1810 we find Burwell Edwards.  This Richard applied for a Rev. War  pension from Pitt Co, NC.  (See the Richard Jordan b 1759 file
        Our William named a son Burrell and his last son Christopher Edward Jordan.

      Although four children are named in William's pension applications there are two sons and four daughters that are unknown to us at this present time.  It appears more children were living in 1856 when Christopher, Elizabeth, Burrell and Samuel Nunis(for Sarah his wife) paid  an attorney to represent them in Washington D.C. Between 1790 and 1800 William is the only male Jordan listed in the Federal census of Edgefield Co, SC  William died in Randolph Co, AL which is a totally burned county. 

      We are searching for six missing children of William and Delilah Jordan and any of their descendants.

         Sir-you will herewith nem(?) the pension application of William Jordan please ____your attention to this application as early as possible as the old man is much in need and very poor.   Respectfully,   Floyd J. Williams                                                          

Pension Office, Nov 4th 1841     Sir       The declaration of William Jordan has been rec'd and placed on file. In the year 1835 Wm Jordan made a declaration from which the last differs in many material features.  His claim at that time was rejected on the ground that his service did not amount to 6 months of which Mr J FLOYD was duly informed 20 July 1835.

           To sustain a claim under the present circumstances it will be necessary that it be supported by the most satisfactory proof.      Mr  Floyd Williams, Corington, GA

Dear Sir,

          My father was a revolutionary soldier from NC served under COL JOHN LOWRY-his name as Wm Jordan & he was entitled to a Pension. I engaged some time since L.R. Loller of AL to attend to this for me, but I cannot learn anything about it. Please let me know immediately whether Mr. Loller or anyone else has ever drawn a pension or not etc

          I am a poor widow lady & I hope you will not fail to give me the information I desire. Direct your letter to me at Bowdon, Carroll Co, GA

Bowdon, GA,  June 5 1860
Dear Sir

          Some two months ago I wrote you and fearing that it has miscarried I write again. As I said before I am a poor widow and do hope you will not neglect to reply to this.  What I wish to know is whether L.R. Lawler AL or anyone else has ever applied or drawn a pension that is due the children of Wm Jordan, who died about 8 years ago. He served in the revolutionary war from North Carolina under Col. Lowry. You can have the record examined and answer me. I know I had the proofs once sufficiently made but can never hear anything since. If you can't give the information I desire please let me know how to obtain it. Address me at Bowdon, Carroll Co, GA.    Respectfully,       /s/   Elizabeth Key

Pension Office,  June 5th 1860     Madam,

          Your letter of 5th June has been received & I have to state that a letter was addressed to you under date of the 12th Just, giving you all the information you desire.  There is not sufficient length of service shown to have been rendered by William Jordan to entitle him to a pension.

                                                                   - - - - - - - -

Pension Office, June 12, 1860      Madam,

          In reply to your last letter of the 20th examined. I have respectfully to inform you that your father William Jordan applied for pension in 1835, but his claim was rejected for the reason that he did not serve as much as 6 months in the Revolutionary War.  Six months service is the MINIUM duration for which pensions are allowed by law.

Notes for Joseph Frances Marion "Munch" KEY:
Article from descendant John W. Key. 

         Joseph Francis Marion Key was a Mason, member of Heaton Lodge, Randolph Co, AL.  He was 31 years old when he volunteered to serve in the Confederate Army.  He enlisted as a Private inCo. G, 47th AL Infantry Regiment, C.S.A. on May 11th, 1862.  He served until April 1865.  He was wounded at Spotsylvania, Virginia during the War. 

        According to files at the AL Penson Commission, who wrote to the War Department in Washington to verify his service, they received the reply that he was a member of Co. G, 47th AL Infantry Regt, C.S.A. but had been "absent without leave" since February 1865.  However, he produced affidavits to show he had been granted a 30 day furlough to go home and that in returning he had been cut off from his command.  Members of the Key family believe his first wife was seriously ill and died April 8, 1865.

       During the Civil War, Joseph Francis Marion "Munch" Key served as a blacksmith and cobbler. He repaired guns and other mechanical equipment.  He made and repaired leather items for horses and shoes for the soldiers.  Members of his family said that once during the war he shod General Robert E. Lee's horse old Traveler, during the war.

       Joseph 'Munch' Key removed to Lawrence Co, AL around 1890 or 1891 where he purchased a farm what is now in the William B. Bankhead National Forest.   The National Forest Services identifies his farm on the map as "Key Mill Branch". 

       According to my father, James Clyde "Cisero" Key, he was injured while working on the water wheel which powered his gristmill.   He said that he fell and broke some bones in his leg.  The accident occurred in March of 1918 and he died on April 18, 1918 in Lawrence Co, AL.  He is buried in Shiloh Cemetery located on National Forest Road 249 in Lawrence Co, AL.

      He was 31 years older than his 3rd wife Mary Jane Tyree. She was a Cherokee Indian. Little is known about her parents.  In a document she stated that her father was last known to have lived in Little Rock, Arkansas and his name was Hiram Tyree.  Her mother Mary A. Tyree came to visit her in 1909 and the 1910 Lawrence Co, AL census gave her as the mother in law of Joseph Key.  According to family members there were some family problems and she left and was never heard of again.

Notes for Mary Elizabeth TANEY:
Many members of the Key family believe she died April 8, 1865 and was buried in Key grave yard located in Randolph Co, AL with unmarked grave.   Husband Joseph Key came home to visit her during the Civil War and she died after he returned to the battle fields.

Notes for Lucinda "Lucy" Belle WHITE:
Lucy is buried with one of Joseph Key and her child, Thomas J. Key who died 25 Jan 1879.

Notes for Mary Jane TYREE:
I have very little information about her and her life.  She lived in our home in the early 1950's.  I remember that one time she was setting on the front porch which was approximately 24 inches above the ground.  It was a cool day and the sun was shining and she was moving her rocking chair around until she fell off of the porch.  My brother Leon and I helped get her up.   She said, " well I just got to close and fell off. "  She was not hurt.   At that time she was 90 years old.    

She was born in Heard County, GA and her father was Hiram Tyree.  She stated he died in Little Rock, Arkansas.  According to family members she was a Cherokee Indian.  Her mother came to visit her about 1910.  According to what my father told my brother Leon they had a disagreement and she left and was never heard of again.

She drew a Confederate Widows pension check for the rest of her life.   She died Aug 28, 1962 at 101 years, seven months and seven days old.   She was buried in Aldridge Grove Cemetery beside her deaf and dumb son Benny Frank Key.  At the time of her death shew as living with her youngest son John Floyd "Jack" Key and his wife Lucille in the Oakville community in Lawrence Co, AL.

After her husband Joseph died on April 18, 1918, she lost 300 acres of land due to a $1600.00 mortgage on the land.

     The 59th AL Infantry Regiment CSA was formed by the consolidatio of the Second and Fourth Battalions of Hilliard's Legion.  The Legion was organized at Montgomery on 25 June 1862 and consisted of five Battalions one of which was mounted and being detached in a short time thereafter became apart of the Tenth Confederate Regiment.   The Second Battalion, six companies was commanded by Lt. Col. Bolling Hall of Autauga and Major W. Stubblefield of Coosa; the Fourth Battalion was commanded by Major John D. McLennah of Barbour.  The Legion proceeded to East TN, nearly 3,000 strong under its commander Col. Hilliard of Montgomery.   Proceeding to Cumberland Gap it was part of the force  that besieged that position.  In October the Legion was a part of the force that occupied KY a fatiguing march.  It passed the winter and summer following in East TN, during which time Col. Jack Thorington of Montgomery (First Battalion) succeeded Col. Hillards and in april 1863 it was attached to General Gracie's Brigade.   The Legion was in the Battle of Chickamauga where it lost more than half its number; the flag of the Second Battalion for example had 81 bullet holes.  Moving into East TN Col. Thorington having resigned, the Legion was divided into the 59th and 60th AL Regiments and 23rd Battalion at Charleston 25 Nov 1863.   The 59th was in the investment of Knoxville and the fights at Dandridge and Bean's Station, with some casualties especially at the latter.   In April 1864 the regiment reached Richmond and shortly after took part in the battle of Drewry's Bluff and the fight with Sheridan.  From June until the March following, the 59th was in the trenches of Petersburg or in the numerous conflicts on the flank and rear of the army, losing a number at Hatcher's Run and White Oaks Road.

As part of Gordon's Corps, Bushrod Johnston's Division, the Regiment was engaged at Appomattox and there surrendered.

From interview of Fannie Baker McClellen by Janet Baker Burks:
My great Aunt Fannie Baker McClellen told me the following story in an interview after I had found Dennis R. Jordan on the 1890 Veterans census of Texas showing he was in the Union Army from a Maine Regt. 

     " My grandfather Dennis Rivers Jordan lived at Lone Oak in Hunt County and is buried in the Lone Oak Cemetery.  When Mama was still living we went to the cemetery to see her Daddy's grave.  Yes, my Grandfather (Dennis) fought for the wrong side and how did  you find out?   My Mama said her Daddy had fought for the Confederacy and was wounded in some battle and sent home.  His mother(Mary Ann Knowls Jordan) told him that he couldn't go back and fight because he was her youngest son and she wasn't going to let him. (His father and brothers were still in the war.)

    He was going to medical school in South America to get away from the war.  They knew people that had gone there and Dennis could go to school.  So Grandfather left and had to get to the Mississippi River so he could catch a ship to South America.  I remember Mama telling me her Daddy was on the ship down the Mississippi River and the Yankees took the ship and told him he was going to fight for them or he would be shot or put in prison.  So he was made to fight for the Yankees.  Mama never talked about it much because we didn't want people to know.  After the War my Grandfather went back and visited with his Grandfather (Knowles) and met and married my Grandmother Sarah Frances Burns who died when Mama was a little girl. "

From the National Archives, Washington, D.C.:

Dennis Rivers Jordan, "Volunteer" enlisted in the Co. "F" 15th Maine Regt. on March 1, 1864 from Morganzia, LA (which is on the Mississippi River) by a Capt.  Laurens J. Joyce. On the enlistment form it states he was 2l yrs old (he was 19), a laborer, and was born in Brunswick, Maine (he was born in Chambers Co,AL) He was mustered in for the town of Brunswick, Maine for three years.  He was sick in Nov and Dec of 1865 in the DeCamp General Hospital New York Harbor where he got clothing and had to prove he had drawn it in order to be paid his pay.   In March and April 1865 muster roll he is listed as a Corpl.    After the War was over  on the May and June 1865 roll he was reduced to ranks as a private by order of Col. Dyer (no reason why the reduction).    He was discharged on the 6th of  Dec 1865 in New York City, NY by an order of the War Dept but has a Company muster-out roll dated July 5, 1866 from Charleston, SC.

It was told by cousin Juanita Miller that Dennis killed a man while living in AL during a dual for insulting his wife Sarah Frances and then moved to Texas.   [He actually moved to DeKalb/Jackson Co, AL where according to my great aunt he had relatives then he made the move to Texas.]

In May 1891 Dennis applied for a US Pension #779191 he states  "I received a gun shot wound in the left thigh in Georgetown, SC in the year 1865 during the month of Sept or Oct from the accidental discharge of a soldiers gun while cleaning it, [when he came off duty] after coming off guard duty. I was sent to a hospital somewhere on the coast in Georgia from there to David's Island Hospital in the State of NY from which I was discharged from the effects of said wound on the 6th day of Dec AD 1865"  signed /s/ Dennis R. Jordan

One wonders if he was accidentally shot.  Imagine it was not pleasant for the southern men that were captured on that ship and forced to fight with men from Maine during the last of the war.

Bureau of Pensions checked his service and on this list his personal description when he enlisted:    age 21, Height 5'6", Eyes blue, Hair brown, Complexion light, Born in Brunswick, ME.  Held the rank of Private, Corp and Private

His third wife Diannah M. Jordan applied for pension after his death  on 1 Dec 1900  and then under the act of April 19, 1908. She did receive a pension#732063.

Jan 25 1912,  Frank F. Womack acquired through Hd Act 1862,  160 ac, described as  Sec 10 T 12N, R8W,  S 1/2,SE 1/4,NW 1/4, SE 1/4; NE 1/4 SW 1/4 rcpt #08281  Farris believes correct date of birth is 1879.

       Dora and Buck Green were md the last of Dec 1878 and I think they came to AR with William Womack's. Franklin was born in AR according to the Family Bible.  Sometimes he listed his name as Frank and other times as Floyd.   Not sure which was first and which is the middle name.   Frank was killed in a truck accient in 1935.  His death left Oma with four children at home and little or not means to support them.  Clete Andrew and Dell cut stave bolts during the winter of 1935 to help feed the family.
