Karen, I have a few pictures, but I really don't know exactly who they are. There are lots of Newton and Jasper Gorden/Gordons from Missouri to Mississippi. For a long time I had difficulty being sure which branch I was researching.
The family that I am researching lived in Polk Co. and Benton Co, Missouri. The parents were James Whaland Gorden and Elizabeth Benton. Their children were Charles; Emma Eliza, b. ca 1850; James Newton, born 2-6-1853; Mary Emma, b. ca 1855; Samuel W., b. 2-12-1857;Montgomery W., b ca 1859; Benjamin S, b ca 1863; Elmore, b 3-22-1866; Rachel, b 1869; Elizabeth, b. 1871; Elbridge, b. 1875.
There are grandchildren names Jasper and Newton, but none fit with your birth date of 1854. If yours are from the same area of Missouri, they are probably cousins.
