Mary Jordan (b. app 1755), daughter of Burwell Jordan was from the Brunswick/Greenville Co, VA area. Mary married Jacob Dupree. Around 1793 they moved to Northampton Co, NC with their son James Lewis Dupree. Several of Mary's Jordan siglings moved with them to NC. In app 1816, James Dupree moved to Washington Co., GA, and I believe some Jordans moved with them. James, with his second wife Deliliah had a son named Jacob Dupree who married in Wilkinson Co., GA and moved to Coffee Co, AL before the Civil War. James' first son, Curtis David Dupree married Sarah Wood in Washington Co, GA, and in 1829 moved to Clarke Co., GA. The family, along with some Jordans moved to Autauga Co., AL in 1853.
RADFORD M. JORDAN
RADFORD M. JORDAN was born Abt. 1770 in Edgecombe Co.??, NC or SC, and died Abt. 1850 in Covington County, Alabama. He married (2) ELIZABETH MIDDLETON HOGG Abt. 1793 in Jackson or Madison County, GA.
Notes for RADFORD M. JORDAN:
On Nov 3, 1802 Radford Jordan bought from John Cobbs for $130 and area of 102 acres in Jackson County, GA. (Deed Book D 1803-1808 page 84.) John Cobbs lived in Jefferson County, GA where a number of Jordan families lived at the time. The land Radford bought was adjacent to land owned by James Wilson and Leonard Maddux and was recorded June 28, 1804. John Cobbs sold a lot more land in Jackson Co to others over the years.
Radford may have been from SC because his children have first names that are surnames from well-to-do families in SC in the early 1800s. Middleton and Peebles are well-known families from the Revolution. They also had large plantations in eastern SC before 1800.
Mulberry Fork water course now separates Jackson and Barrow Counties, GA. Barrow County was formed in part from Jackson and Gwinnett Counties in 1914. Charles Jourdon was taxed on the Mulberry Fork (Burge's District) in 1801 (a Charles Jourdon was in Wilkes County as early as 1785). Radford Jordan was in the 1805 lottery list in Jackson County and was shown again in 1807. Samuel Jordan was on the Mulberry Fork (Cochran's District) in 1807. James Jordan was in Gwinnett Co. (Hamilton's District) in 1819 and is shown in Gwinnett Co. in the 1820 U.S. Census. In "Gone to Georgia" it is said on page 293, "Perhaps a link to the family in Gwinnett County, James Jordan and James Hamilton were joint securities for Ann, Widow of John Twitty and their son, William in the administration of the elder Twitty's estate in Pendleton District., SC, May 9, 1791 (Court Minutes 1790-1793, page 7).
Radford was in Gwinnett County, GA in 1820.
Radford and his family were in Wilkinson Co., GA when his son Clark Middleton Jordan was born.
Radford and William Enoch Jordan were in the same counties in GA and AL at about the same times. They may have been related.
Radford signed a petition in Covington County, AL in 1831 along with the following Jourdans (Jordens), all likely relatives:
Benjamin L. Jourdan
William H. Jourdan
Radford Jourdan was a jailer in Covington Co., AL in 1837.
Child of RADFORD M. JORDAN is:
i.ABEDNEGO JORDAN, b. ??Washington Co., GA.
Children of RADFORD JORDAN and ELIZABETH HOGG are:
ii.PEEBLES C. JORDAN, b. Abt. 1795, Chipola/Jackson Co, GA; d. August 05, 1867, Jones CO., MS. iii.WILLIAM H. JORDAN, b. Abt. 1805, Wilkinson Co., GA; d. Lee Co??., GA.
Notes for WILLIAM H. JORDAN:
William H. Jordan won a land lottery in 1827 and bought property in Lee Co., GA. Some records show him as William E. Jordan. It is possible that this was William Enoch Jordan.
iv.CLARK MIDDLETON JORDAN, b. May 05, 1812, Wilkinson Co, GA; d. August 05, 1874, Hony Island, Hardin, Texas.
PEEBLES C. JORDAN
PEEBLES C. JORDAN (RADFORD M.) was born Abt. 1795 in Chipola or Jackson Co, GA, and died August 05, 1867 in Jones County, MS. He married CHARLOTTE WELDON.
Notes for PEEBLES C. JORDAN:
Appears in Covington County, AL 1830 census living near William Jordan with his family (wife about same age, 2 boys 5-10 and 3 girls under 5).
Peebles C. JORDAN, born 1795 in GA (Jackson Co. ?), moved to Alabama with parents as early as 1810. I believe his father is Radford JORDAN (b abt 1770), but I cannot prove this. Radford JORDAN participated in the GA 1805 land lottery in Jackson Co., GA. and had two tries so he was married and had children at the time. He ended up in District 27 of Wilkinson Co., GA, which is now in Wilkinson and Laurens Co., GA. P. C. JORDAN was drafted in Wilkinson Co., GA, 1812 but paid a William Callahan to serve for him. Radford JORDAN shows up in the 1810 Mississippi Territory census for Washington Co., GA and can later be traced to Montezuma (near Andalusia, AL) for every census thereafter, except for 1830. In 1830, he can be found in the Henry Co. census; in 1840 he was back in Covington Co., AL From the book "Early History of Covington County, Alabama 1821-1871" by Wyley Ward, Radford was shown as a jailer in 1834 in Montezuma. I believe Radford JORDAN's sons were Peebles C. JORDAN, William H. JORDAN (b abt 1805 in GA), Clarke Middleton JORDAN (b May 5, 1812 in Wilkinson Co., Georgia) and Abednego JORDAN. Other Jordans in Covington County, AL at the time include Henry D. JORDAN (b between 1770 and 1780) and James JORDAN (b abt 1790).
It is possible that Henry D. Jordan was William Enoch Jordan's father.

i.ASHBERRY BENJAMIN JORDAN. ii.HUDAH JORDAN, b. 1821. iii.JACOB JACKSON JORDAN, b. 1822. iv.JOHN H. JORDAN. v.LUVINDA JORDAN. vi.NANCY S. JORDAN. vii.HARRIET E. JORDAN. viii.WILLIAM C. JORDAN. ix.AARON P. JORDAN. x.ROBERT G. JORDAN. xi.CHARLOTTE M. JORDAN.
CLARK MIDDLETON JORDAN
CLARK MIDDLETON JORDAN (RADFORD M.) was born May 05, 1812 in Wilkinson Co, GA, and died August 05, 1874 in Hony Island, Hardin, Texas. He married MARY TABITHA HOGG in GA.
Notes for CLARK MIDDLETON JORDAN:
In the 1850 census of Covington County, AL, Clark M. Jordan is a neighbor of James Jordan who was born in SC. James may have been the son of Harriet Jordan. Both of these Jordans were in Covington County at the same time William Enoch Jordan arrived between 1840 and 1850. I believe they were relatives who lived in Wilkinson Co., GA during the period 1810-1820. Clark was born in Wilkinson Co. William Enoch lived there when he got the GA land lottery ticket in 1827 and bought a Parcel 32, District 14 in Carroll Co., GA. This parcel ended up in Heard Co., GA when that county was formed in 1830.
Children of CLARK JORDAN and MARY HOGG are:
