Welcome to familytreecircles jdlove605.

You need to include a few names and dates of your JORDON line in Perth and what details you seek so others can assist you.

Good luck.

Thank you. I wish I could find out what happened to Winnie after she married Jack a Crofts.

William Tilden Jordon was my great grandfathers brother. He enlisted in the US Army in 1910 and served in the Phillipines. He wrote letters home but the last one was postmarked in 1911 from Western Australia. He was not heard from again. I had found the burial information a couple of years ago, but could not find out anything about his wife or daughter.
We were surprised to find out that he lived until 1946. Why he never wrote to his brother or sister again will always remain a mystery.

Name: Lavinia Evangeline JORDAN.
Died: 26 October 1968.
Place: North Perth, Western Australia.
Age: 72 years.
Buried: Karrakatta Cemetery, Western Australia.
Area: Anglican.
Section: Anglican.
Gravesite: 0070.
Grantee: Winnie ANDREWS.

Lavinia's burial recorded under JORDAN.
She is buried with her husband William.

Still looking for Winnie.
I'm curious because the grantee is named Winnie ANDREWS and not Winnie CROFTS so I'm thinking she was married twice.
If you have any marriage details for her to ANDREWS and CROFTS it may help with
further record searches.

Error on my part.
Lavinia was buried in WG. Unable to correct errors once submitted.

by jdlove605 on 2015-02-28 01:43:30

I cannot figure that out either.
Lavinia Jordon's maiden name was Andrews.
Their daughter was Winnie, but she married someone names Jack Crofts.

Makes no sense to me at all

Thanks so much for your help.

Thank you so much. The last few years of his life, my great-grandfather had completely lost his eyesight.

It is sad that a man who enlisted in the US Army and then in the Australiam army; saw battle in both, would die being hit by a truck.

search both CROFT and CROFTS

With all of your help I have located burial records at Karrakatta Cemetery for John William Croft and Joyce Winifred Croft. I had only known her as Winnie before this.
That led me to birth notices for three children born to Winnie Croft (nee Jordon or Jordan), Phillip John Croft born 1944, John Sidney Croft born 1946 and Jeffrey Douglas Croft born 1948.
They may still be living, in which case I would love to be able to get in contact with them.
