Seeking parents of JOHN JORDAN (various spellings) born 6 Mar 1764 where I know not. 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; migrated to Steuben Co William 1788; migrated to Steuben Co Jesse 1790; migrated to Steuben Co James 1791; migrated to Cuba, Allegany Co John 1792; migrated to Cuba, Allegany Co Andrew; 1795; migrated to Wirt, Allegany Co
Isaiah 1799; migrated to Wirt, Allegany Co
Sally (Patty) 1801;
JACOB 1803; migrated to Wirt, Allegany Co 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
town of Pike, Wyoming Co, NY to live with youngest daughter and her family. He died there 1/26/1850 and body taken to Friendship in Allegany Co, NY and buried in Mount Hope Cemetery
ANY help would be appreciated on these above mentioned families....
