We are seeking any information regarding Adam Jordan (might have been spelled Jourdan before). Decendants possibly were from France-Germany areas. He originally lived in Lancaster County, and (later)Union County, PA,USA, b. Feb.1803 in Lancaster County(supposedly) PA, died 1860 in OH; Adam married Sophia Orwig also from PA (b.1803 in Schuylkill County, PA-died in OH). They had children also born in PA (Sarah, Lucy, Martin, Joseph, John-died young). All moved from PA to OH around 1832 (1st to Richland County, and finally to Sandusky County around 1844.).

*So we mainly need to know the parents names (and even siblings) of this Adam, and even farther back if possible, such as his grandparents, which generation came to USA and from where (supposedly from Germany-France). We cannot seem to find any information, so any help or info would be appreciated. Please feel free to email us at: (remove the + signs-they are there to help prevent spammail to our email). If the email happens to not work, please post any found geneology info in here. Thanks. PJ
