Subject: JOHN JORDAN born 1764; died 1850 NYS
Date: Sun, 23 Apr 2006 10:55:01 -0700 (PDT)
Seeking parents of JOHN JORDAN born 6 Mar 1764 where I
know not. He died 26 Jan 1850 Pike, Wyoming Co, NY,
but buried in family lot in Friendship, Allegany
He married 15 Sep 1785 probably in or near Goshen,
Orange Co., NY Julia SWARTOUT born 18 Nov 1769
daughter of Jacobus SWARTOUT who before and during the
Revolution lived in Sugar Loaf which is now in town of
Chester, Orange Co., NY but then in town of Warwick,
Orange Co., NY.
Following children born to John and Julia:
Michael 1786 in Orange Co;
Sally (Patty) 1801;
Julia Margaret 1805;
Unnamed son 1807 at which time Julia probably died
because she does not appear in 1810 census.
John/Julia do not appear in the 1790 census of NYS
in their own home with two sons nor have I found them
in PA, NJ or any N.E. state.
By 1800, JORDAN family residing in Cherry Valley,
Otsego Co., NY.
From there, Michael, William and Jesse settled in and
died in Steuben Co. James and John settled town of
Cuba, Allegany Co., NY; Isaiah, after living with his
brother, Michael in Steuben Co., migrated on to
Allegany Co and he and brothers Andrew and JACOB
settled in town of Wirt of Allegany Co., NY.
Betsey (Elizabeth) Jordan married Sebastion WELLER
and lived in Canajoharie,
Montgomery Co., NY. Sally married John DYGERT and
lived in Montgomery Co,
NY. Julia Margaret married Charles PHELPS, migrated to
Pike, Wyoming Co. and
it was at her home that JOHN died in 1850.
In 1840, JOHN JORDAN is still residing at Cherry
Valley but by 1848 has migrated
to town of Wirt and because he died before 1850 census
was taken, it has been
family tradition that he lived with his son, JACOB,
but his will probate states he
died at home of his daughter in Wyoming Co.
ANY help would be appreciate on these above
