Surnames: Jordan
Could you please email me. I think I may be able to help you.

I have a typed version of his Will. A short list of his children. I descend from his son Jacob Jordan who married Mary Ann Shriver. He had a set of twin sons. Patrick and Peter. He had a daughter Elizabeth, Son Garrett, and maybe sons John and Jared. He was brought possibly to this country as a prisoner. Sold into indentured servitude to Isaac Zane. This is still being investigated.

Notes for PATRICK 'PETER' JORDAN:
Sources for a lot of this information is through the internet. I searched the genealogy web sites. I searched the query boards, also the family trees that were posted as gedcom files. I would post queries of my own and I received responses. I will list the email addresses of people that are researching the family lines as we are, on a seperate resource list, and most of them gave this information to us of the earlier Jordan's. My grandmother, Donna Edith Jordan Kuebler and my mother RoseMary Margaret Wespesser Kuebler researched some and filled in most of the immediate lines. I myself have completed some research have added it to the database.

Patrick immigrated to America. Virginia. Served in the Revolutionary War. After the Revolutionary War moved to Kentucky with some of his sons. One son, Jacob moved to Pennsylvania, then later to Ohio.

(From "The Genealogy of Jacob Jordan and Mary Ann Shriver" = There is a book written on our Jordans. It was a reunion in 1967. LDS site has it.):
1790 Census of Virginia, Frederick Co. - Peter Jordan listed immediately after Adam Shriver. Adam Shriver was the father of Jacob Jordan's wife, Mary Ann Shriver. It is rumored that Patrick was known as Peter to his German wife and friends. {In all records in this country, including his will, he is listed as Peter Jordan.} Being the youngest son, his Irish family had expected him to join the priesthood. He had other plans, and boarded a German ship bound for the colonies. He met his future wife aboard that ship.

From "The Book of Irish Families Great & Small"
Volume I, 2nd edition,
by Michael C. O'Laughlin, p. 159:

Mac JORDAN - - - - - Mac Jordan, MacSiurtan, MacShurton

The JORDAN family were among the chief Anglo-Norman and English settlers of Ulidia under De Courcey and his successors. Ulidia was an ancient territorial division which included Down and parts of Antrim.

It is further stated in Keatings History that the de Exeters of Mayo changed their name to 'Mac Jordan.' Settling in Ireland following the Norman invasions of the 12th century, this family assumed the name of MacSiurtan or Mac Jordan.

'Mac Jordans Country' is found in the barony of Gallen in Co. Mayo. The name when translated means descendant of Jordan, in this case one Jordan d'Exeter.

Those of the name given above became thoroughly Irish in manner and custom, and adapted well to the way of life in Ireland.

In the 17th century JORDAN was a principal name of Waterford and Jordane is found in Tipperary. Other spellings of the name include JORDON, JORDIN, and JORDANE.

By the time of the 1890 birth index 'JORDAN' was main spelling of the name, with births recorded in Dublin, Mayo, Antrim and Galway.

Notes for GARRETT JORDAN:
From "Collin's Historical Sketches of KY", p519: ...the following persons were among those who resided at Harrodsburg, during some portion of ..1775, after March 11, which was the date of the first arrival and re-occupancy of the cabins built in 1774--and which was at least 20 days before Col. Daniel Boone's company reached the Kentucky River and laid the foundations of Boonesborough. Fourteen of them raised corn, within a few miles of Harrodsburg, and 2 of them near Lexington, that season: ... Garrett Jordan, Patrick Jordan ...

From "Genealogy of Jacob Jordan & Mary Ann Shriver" by the Jordan Reunion Committee, 1967, p3:

"......John H. Gwathmey, 1938, 'Historical Register of Virginians in the Revolution - Soldiers, Sailors, Marines - 1775-1783', Dietz Press, Richmond, VA, p430, lists three familiar names:
Patrick Jordan.....
Peter Jordan......
Garrat Jordan, ........ on list of militia paid off at Pittsburgh (Fort Pitt) in 1775, probably Colonial troops in Dunmore's War late in receiving their pay. Practically all of them immediately joined the revolutionary forces.
The Adjutant General's Office, Washington, D.C., 2-1-1934, wrote Della Finsterwald (K82), 'The records of this office show that one Garrett Jordan served in the Revolutionary War as a private in Capt. William Butler's, later designated Capt. James Chrystie's Co., 3rd Pa. Regiment, commanded successively by Col. Arthur St. Clair and Col. Joseph Wood. He enlisted Feb. 6, 1776, and his name is last borne on the Company Pay Roll for the period from Jan. 1 to Mar. 31, 1777 without remarks as to date of termination of service.'
Pa. Archives, Index to Series 5, Vol. II, p98: Garrett Jordan, Pvt., under Col. Arthur St. Clair, enlisted in vicinity of Greensburg, Westmoreland Co., PA, 1776, Jan. 5-Nov. 25.
Vol. II, p1001: Garrett Jordan, Pvt., Continental Line, 3rd Pa., killed in action. So Garratt was probably the brother killed in the Battle of Brandywine Creek (Sept. 11, 1777), or Battle of Princeton (say others)."

Hello Corrinna,
We are descended down from Garrett Jordan who married Elizabeth Harmon d/ Conrad and Elizabeth Guinn Harmon. Their daughter Jane Jordan married John Isaac Saxton ca. 1849. Both died in Jackson Co. Ohio.I would like to know more about the other family members and if possible a copy of the will (typed version to put with my records)
I can only share from Garrett's side to present descendants.
You can e-mail me without going through this message board-- so it won't muddy it up too much with questions. Would love to hear from you about our ancestors

Robert:

Do you have any more information on Peter "Patrick" Jordan and where exactly in Ireland he came from? Any information on his parents? I may be going to Ireland this summer and would like to look up info there if possible. If you could get back to me that would be great!
Thanks,
Heather (Jordan) Walker
