I am looking for Merritt/Merit Jordan. He was apparently alive in 1849 when his father Matthew wrote his will and died. Apparently MERRITT was single or had no children at the time, Matthew mentioned his grandchildren in his will.
Oddly, I haven't found a single other record bearing his name. What happened to him?
Maybe on a similar vein, anyone in the MERRITT family have an ABIGAIL/ABBY who wed a MATTHEW/MATTIAS JORDAN in or around JOHNSTON COUNTY NC between 1790 and 1804? Or a REBECCA (born 1798, +/- 3) who wed a JOSEPH A JORDAN in WAKE or vicinity during the 1820s, early 30s?
