Jordan was my greatgreatgreat grandfather thru Hiram (HC) I have recently lost all of my CD records on this part of the family, but this is what can remember from past research. Jordan was born sometime I estimated around 1811 in Somerset County, PA. I have never been able to find any records of this in PA at all or of any Hecks in the area. He was married in Green County around 1830ish and was found in the census records with a wife and 2 daughters. Louisa was my grgrgrgrandmother. From family stories I have heard, the Eliza is not Louisa it is her niece (Margaret's daughter) Margaret (Louisa's older sster) was supposedly kidnapped by indians and when returned was pregnant with Elizabeth. Jordan was married to Louisa, but was apparently sleeping with his wife's niece(Eliza) also and had 2 kids by her while he had 7 with Louisa and 2 with the other woman from Green County. There is a lot of mystery concerning his death and how he was shot in broad daylight by members of the military that had mistaken him for an outlaw.

In regards to the post by amccarthy on 2008-05-19
I have marriage information with dates that show that Jordan Married Sally Harrison, (the other woman from Greene County) on Feb. 26, 1840 by C. Cooper J.p. They had two daughters, Hannah E. and my gr gr grandmother Ann J.Heck. I have not been able to find out who they married, or who the father is of my gr grandfather James Melvin Heck. Since all of Jordan's kids by all three (3) woman would be related by blood, all having the same father, I was hoping that some one would possibly have this information. Perhaps Ann J. wasn't married when Her son James Melvin was born, or she married a cousin or something, since he has the surname heck too. I just need to find out who his father could be. I will appreciate any help that anyone has to offer.
