This is a very old thread, but I am hoping someone can help me out. I am descended from Jordan Bennett, born ca 1818. Jordan ultimately left IL/IN and headed down through Missouri to Texas. He had a son named Jordan Franklin Bennett, who had a son known in the family as Jirden Franklin Bennett, although that might be a misspelling. I have not been able to ascertain his parents, but it is possible he is the son of either Legro Bennett, John L. Bennett or James Bennett. I just have not been able to make a connection. All I have found fails to show that Legro had a son named Jordan, so I am assuming it is one of the others.
Jordan Bennett married Harriett Berry and settled in East Texas. Their daughter, Hannah, married my gggrandfather Virgil A. Roberts.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
