Re: JORDAN, Adam Ohio Co., KY and Daviess Co., KY
The problem is in the 1850 census of Daviess Co. Ky.
Adam Jordan (head of family) is 70 years old.Polly is
44 and would have been born 1806/7.Adam and Mary Galloway
were married in 1804 at least 2 years before this lady was
born.This can't be Mary.Mary was born abt 1784.She
was under age and had to have her fathers O.K.The lady
in the 1850 census is either a daughter or daughter-in-law
of Adam.The John Jordan and Frances is his son and daughter-in-law.( next family on 1850 census.)Look at their ages. I believe but can't prove yet that the children under Polly are Adam's grand children. So far I can not find a son for Adam named after him. Adam and Mary have a child born 1806 named Polly. In 1860 she is living with Amanda morgan's family. Amanda was wife of deceased William Jordan son of Adam and Mary.Confused?
