Re: Jordans of Elbert
I would like to know if you have any information for Fountain Jordan of Elbert Co. GA. He was born about 1750-1760 and died in Troupe Co. GA before 1840. He served in the American Revolution in North Carolina. Fountain is in the 1790 Barnwell South Carolina census along with Isham Jordan, my ancestor, and George Jordan. A Robert Jordan and Nathan Jordan were also in Barnwell South Carolina. Fountain Jordan was in Elbert Co. GA after 1800 and Isham Jordan was in Irwin Co. GA after 1800. Both of them won land in the early GA lotteries, 1805 or 1806 for Fountain and again in the 1820's or 30's and Isham is listed in the 1807 lottery.
Another Isham Jordan, possibly the son or grandson of the older Isham above , married Margaret McFarland in 1835 in Greene Co. Alabama. Do you have any Jordan and McFarland ties in your research? Thank you very much.
