BRYANT H NORRIS married Susan C Jordan in 1849 in Johnston County. What was Susan's maiden name? What was the name of Matthew Jordan's son who was her first husband?
SUSAN C JORDAN is mentioned in Matthew's will - Matthew died in 1849. Susan C is not noted as a daughter though. She is mentioned ONLY as mother to TABITHA WINIFRED JORDAN (born 1845, one of several granddaughters mentioned) and "wife of BRYANT H NORRIS." Matthew doesn't include the name of his children who died.
BRYANT H and SUSAN had a family. Hoping their descendents
can help fill in the gaps.
