Looking for a Jordan who married Sarah Prater in Va or Ky maybe Absolom Jordan?
I am looking for information on the 2nd wife of my gggrandfather, Amos Bays, Sr b-1803 in Pittsylvania County VA. His first wife was Mary Vance and they had about 12 children. He later married Sarah Prater Jordan in 1853 in Johnson County, Ky. They had 3 children, Amos Jr., Henry and Amanda J. Amos Sr. was killed in 1858 in Morgan County, KY. She shows up on the 1860 Magoffin County KY Census as a washer woman with her 3 children. After that, I have not been able to find her or the children, except, Amos Jr. who is my direct line.
I do not know who Sarah Prater married first and whether they had any children. His name was Jordan and perhaps he was married before. I was searching for an Absolam Jordan who was married previously and I did find a marriage record for Sarah Prater and Absolem Jordan. I am unable to get my hands on it right now but, I think it was about 1840.
On the marriage record for Amos Bays and Sarah (Prater) Jordan, it says that Amos is a widower and she is also a widow.
So, I am looking for a Prater family that moved from VA to KY with a daughter, Sarah and a Jordan family who was in Kentucky by 1840 and he remarried or married a Sarah Prater.
