Sorry I haven't responded. Been so busy with band and soccer, my daughter is a senior at Garrard County High School, and I haven't had a moment to myself. Stan told me he had contacted you. He recently broke his ankle and is laid up for a few weeks. Hope that you keep in touch and let us know of any contacts you find.

Sorry I missed you. The "Jordan Genealogists" poked around in Clark County on Sunday, Oct 10. We didn't make any startling discoveries, but we did get a few leads that Robert Burton is following up on about Jordans who once lived in that area where Sharshall Jordan lived and farmed.

Thanks, Bobby! I know plenty about my mother's side of the family but very little about my father's side. I know I have cousins scattered all over the place and it's nice to know who they are. Keep us informed when you find something!

Tim:
I am your grandfather Glen's older brother. I'm glad that you are interested in your genealogy.
Edward Glen Jordan was born in 1939 -- two years younger than me. We were very close. Our older brother, James Douglas Jordan, JR is 8 years older than me. "Peanut," as we called him, was short with hazel eyes and blond hair. He was a scrapper...but had a heart as big as all outdoors. He served in the Navy and later in the Army.
His last job was as a security officer in louisville, KY.
There wasn't much about our family available when I first started doing genealogy in the 1980s. But now there is a lot on the Internet. Unfortunately, some of it is wrong. I keep trying to correct it, but some people just like to beleive what they want to believe.
What I can tell you is that there is much to be proud about your heritage. But it is up to you what your future will be.
