Hello fellow Jordans, I am from the Jordan branch that sprouted in the Bethel, Maine area and can trace my line back to Rev. Robert and Sarah. (myself>Arnold>Orlando>Charles>Richard>Abraham>Humphrey>James I>Robert>John>Rev Robert.)
My questions lie with the spouses of James b.1718 in Cape Elizabeth and his son Humphrey b. 1751 in Danville.
Some records indicate James married Elizabeth Jordan – which one would assume may have been a 2nd or 3rd cousin, but I can find no trace of her lineage back to Rev Robert.
Humphrey married Joanna Briant (Bryant?) and I am unable to find anything on her either. There are numerous spelling variations with Joanna’s first and last name, which may be part of the problem. I have searched online and own a copy of the Jordan Memorial but nothing has turned up as yet.
Would anyone have answers or suggestions that might point me in the right direction?
I would greatly appreciate it.
