JOHN JORDAN b 1764
Posted by: Ruth Jordan Thoden (ID *****0062) Date: September 06, 2008 at 08:29:48
  of 894

Seeking parents of JOHN JORDAN born 6 Mar 1764 perhaps in Sussex Co NJ. He died 26 Jan 1850 Pike, Wyoming Co, NY, but buried in family lot in Friendship, Allegany Co., NY. He married 15 Sep 1785 probably in or near Goshen, Orange NY Julia SWARTOUT born 18 Nov 1769 daughter of Jacobus SWARTOUT who before and during the Revolution lived in Sugar Loaf which is now in town of Chester, Orange Co., NY but then in town of Warwick, Orange Co., NY.

Following children born to John and Julia:
Michael 1786 in Orange Co;
William 1788;
Jesse 1790;
James 1791;
John 1792;
Andrew; 1795;
Betsey 1797;
Isaiah 1799;
Sally (Patty) 1801;
JACOB 1803;
Julia Margaret 1805;
Unnamed son 1807 at which time Julia probably died because
she does not appear in 1810 census.
John/Julia do not appear in the 1790 census of NYS in their own home with two sons nor have I found them in PA, NJ or any N.E. state.
By 1800, JORDAN family residing in Cherry Valley, Otsego Co., NY.
From there, Michael, William and Jesse settled in and died in Steuben Co. James and John settled town of Cuba, Allegany Co., NY; Isaiah, after living with his brother, Michael in Steuben Co., migrated on to Allegany Co and
he and brothers Andrew and JACOB settled in town of Wirt of Allegany Co., NY.
Betsey (Elizabeth) Jordan married Sebastion WELLER and lived in Canajoharie, Montgomery Co., NY. Sally married John DYGERT and lived in Montgomery Co, NY. Julia Margaret married Charles PHELPS, migrated to Pike, Wyoming Co. and it was at her home that JOHN died in 1850.
In 1840, JOHN JORDAN is still residing at Cherry Valley but by 1848 has migrated to town of Wirt and because he died before 1850 census was taken, it has been family tradition that he lived with his son, JACOB, but his will probate states he died at home of his daughter in Wyoming Co.
ANY help would be appreciated on these above mentioned families....
