Elizabeth JONES

ABT 1630 - ____

ID Number: I77810

  • RESIDENCE: Northumberland Co. VA
  • BIRTH: ABT 1630
  • RESOURCES: See: [S2961]
Father: (RESEARCH QUERY) of VA JONES


Family 1 : Thomas HAYNES
  1. +Margaret HAYNES
Family 2 : John PINCKARD

Notes


"When Thomas died, she remarried John Pinckard after 1679 and became his third wife. The confusion about Margaret being a Pinckard came from a court document where Margaret's husband, William Jones and others petitioned for the "moving of their mother Elizabeth Pinkard's estate". Back then in court terminology, "mother" was used to mean what we now refer to as "mother-in-law".


The William and Mary College Quarterly also printed an article on the Pinkard/Pinckard family and I believe this misinterpretation was part of that article. I descend from Capt. John Pinckard's son, John, and believe me, there have been so many mistakes made about him due to his 3 marriages and stepchildren. Hope this helps."

Mathew Peeples JORDAN

18 Aug 1852 - 12 Mar 1929

ID Number: I67639

  • RESIDENCE: Butler Co. AL; Ellisville, Jones Co. MS
  • BIRTH: 18 Aug 1852, Butler Co., Alabama

Father: Jacob Jackson JORDAN
Mother: Elizabeth MOSELEY


Family 1 : Sarah Margaret "Sary" FAIRCHILD

Notes


Bio: "MATHEW PEEPLES JORDAN The content of this account is based on "family lore" and personal recollections of this writer, who is a grandson of M. P. Jordan and was sixteen years old at the time of his death on 1929. Regretfully, the memories and impressions are based upon rather fleeting and shallow perceptions. But, who, in his early teens, is perceptive enough to attempt to explore the thoughts and recollections as an adult?


M. P. Jordan was one of the six children of Jack and Elizabeth Moseley Jordan. His father, Jack, died during the Civil War, as previously related, and this family grew up during the war and reconstruction period under the most difficult circumstances. Although he seldom referred to his childhood in his adult years, based on the few remarks he made, it is easy to conclude that to refer to his family as being "impoverished" was an understatement. Most of their efforts during those years were directed toward survival. However, Grandpa did learn to read and write. The opportunities for formal schooling were almost non-existent during those years, but somehow he managed to master the rudiments of learning.


One of my early recollection of Grandpa is that he had misshaped toes on his right foot. His brief explanation of the cause of this condition was that he got his toes cut with an axe when he was a small boy. Other members of the family explained in more detail that it was the result of an accident involving Grandpa's older brother, Bill. The two of them were gathering and cutting wood for the fireplace. Bill was chopping, and at some point in their efforts, Bill chopped down on his younger brother's toes. Grandpa lost the tip of his big toes and the second and third toes were almost completely severed. Apparently, they were near the house and Elizabeth, their mother, came to them immediately. She disinfected the wounds with the only thing at hand, kerosene, placed the almost severed toes back in position as best she could, and bandaged them. They healed, but the toes grew at a peculiar angle with his foot. You will note the absence of any reference to medical assistance during this episode. Apparently, whether by choice or of necessity (probably the latter), this family dealt with emergencies on their own.


In 1876 M. P. Jordan, by then known and referred to as "Math", married Sarah Margaret Fairchild. She was called "Sary" and was a daughter of William H. Fairchild and Louisa Dickerson of Jones County, Mississippi. Before the Civil War, William H. Fairchild was a successful land owner, farmer, and stock raiser. He was killed during the Civil War by renegades because of his sympathy for and actions in behalf of the Confederate cause. An account of this episode is contained in the book by Rudy Leverett, "Legend of the Free State of Jones".


During the first few years of their marriage, Grandpa and Grandma lived in Ellisville, Mississippi. In the early 1880's, they homesteaded 160 acres of land in Pine Grove community southwest of Ellisville near the Fairchild home where Grandma grew up. Their homestead joined a part of the 120 acres that Grandma received from her father's estate. The land was heavily timbered and much effort was required to clear it and get it in condition to produce crops.


The ensuing years were not easy. Grandpa cleared land on his homestead, built a house for his family (as well as one for his mother, Elizabeth), and hewed cross ties for the railroad that was being constructed and maintained through that part of Jones County. He sold timber when there was a market for it, and when there was no market for timber, he burned it (as was the custom) to make way for crop land. All members of the family joined in this effort. As the children became old enough and big enough, they worked in the field or at whatever task needed doing. And children arrived with consistent frequency.


The first child, a girl, was born in 1878. Twenty years later, in 1898, their twelfth and youngest child, a boy, was born. There were no infant deaths, which was rare in families at that time, and all of them lived to adulthood and established families of their own. Much credit goes to Grandma for her loving concern and careful nurturing of their large family. Many of the older children have spoken of their mother's concern for them. She did not seem to be overly anxious about illness, but she was concerned about their being bitten by snakes. Consequently, she declared war on all snakes, as well as all other "varmints" that were about. This included a skunk that ventured too close to one of her small children. Grandma went after the skunk with her "snake-killing stick". The skunk retaliated with its usual effective weapon, but Grandma prevailed. The skunk lost its life, but for a time Grandma was not welcomed with open arms by anyone. I vaguely recall being told that at this time Grandma was having trouble "weaning" her youngest baby. After the skunk episode, "weaning" the child was not a problem.


The problems related to homesteading on new land were difficult enough if everything went along without human interference. When problems with people interposed, the difficulties were multiplied. Grandpa had a high degree of respect for constituted authority and for property rights.


Unfortunately, a family lived a few miles away whose members did not share those sentiments. The family consisted of a widow and several sons, apparently of questionable character. Grandpa had a pointed discussion with one of the sons regarding his misconduct. The boy resented it and told his mother. She also resented it. According to my father, B. V. Jordan, this incident occurred In he late 1880's. Grandpa and his entire family were picking cotton in a field away from the house. The season was late fall and they were trying to finish gathering the crop. They looked toward the road and saw the mother of the rowdy boys walking in the direction of their house. They thought she was just passing by. A short time later, someone looked toward the house and saw smoke curling from the roof. All of them ran to the house, but by the time they arrived it was enveloped in flames. The only thing they were able to save was a barrel of can syrup that was sitting on the "dog-trot", a walk-way that connected the living area of the house to the kitchen. Grandpa picked the barrel of syrup up and walked away from the burning house. He ordinarily would not have been able to carry it alone, but under the stress of the moment he did.


The loss of house, furniture, and clothing was compounded by the loss of carefully saved money in the form of silver. I don't think Grandpa and Grandma ever told anyone how much silver they lost, but they searched and probed in the ashes thinking perhaps it has melted and they would find a lump. It must have been a significant amount. They found no trace of it and concluded that it was a case of arson to cover up a theft.


Grandpa moved his family into the small house occupied by his mother, Elizabeth, and they began again the task of building a house to shelter their growing family. Their efforts during the ensuing years were rewarded with modest success.


At some point during his adult years, the information circulated that "Math Jordan can stop blood!" This was an expression used to convey the idea that the flow of blood from a wound could be mysteriously stanched as a result of a mystical power possessed by certain people who had a special "gift". To my knowledge, Grandpa never asserted nor admitted that he had such a "gift". Neither did he deny it. He just did not discuss it.


This belief in certain "gifts" is frequently found among some persons of the eastern Kentucky and Tennessee mountain regions. It is less frequently found among people of other regions. The account of how Grandpa received his "gift" was told to me by my aunt, Madie Jordan Price, when I was about fourteen years old.


The farm adjoining Grandpa's on the north side was owned by Mr. Will Cross. His wife had the "gift" of being able to stop blood. She wanted one of her daughters, Annabel, to have the "gift" also. According to the rules that had to be observed in passing the "gift" to another person, the recipient could not be of the same sex as the giver, not could he or she be a blood relation of the giver. Mrs. Cross entered into an agreement with Grandpa, who was not related to her, to "pass" him the gift with the understanding that he would "pass" it to her daughter, Annabel. Another rule was that only one person could receive the "gift" from a person who had it. According to family lore, Grandpa received the "gift" from Mrs. Cross and "passed" it to her daughter when she reached adulthood.


Did, or does, such power exist? Assuredly, it would Dot have accomplished anything to have asked Grandpa that question. His silence on that subject was eloquent. It seended to say loudly and clearly, "You decide for yourself!"
