Turner E. Jordan/1880 Census Faulkner Co
I am posting here hoping to find someone that can help me locate my GGrandfather, Turner E. Jordan.He was on the Faulkner County Census in 1880.Since my grandfather, William Arthur Jordan was 6 months old at the time, and him being born in Mississippi it would seem he had been there less than 6 months when the census was done.He was married to Amanda Cooper in Alabama in March 1874.She had a daughter Mary King at the time and she was shown as a stepdaughter age 17 on the census.The other children of this marriage was James Felix Jordan and Susan "Sudie" Jordan.
I am just grasping for any and all links as to why they left Alabama and went to Arkansas and who they knew there.I can't find Amanda's maiden name, nor the name of Mary's father.
If anyone can help, it would be appreciated.
