CHARLES READY JORDAN, b. TN, 21 Sept 1873, d. CA, m. FRANCES E. HENDERSON
Posted by: Jacqueline Sleeper Russell (ID *****0541) Date: October 12, 2006 at 13:07:59
  of 1195

Surnames: JORDAN, READY, HENDERSON, BLOUNT

I believe CHARLES READY JORDAN's parents were: LELAND JORDAN & LETITIA (READY?) from census research.

Hoping to find ancestry of the JORDAN, HENDERSON & READY lines.

CHARLES's first wife FRANCES EVELYN HENDERSON died not long after the birth of their daughter ELLA READY JORDAN, and he remarried.
