Reverend Charles Jordan is reputed to be the first to free his slaves -- inherited from his father, William, some 50 years before the Emancipation Proclamation. The family moved to Indiana, then to Paris, Illinois, and on the eve of the "trek to Kansas," his wife Nancy Crume Jordan died. After a time the rest of the family moved on to homestead near Tecumseh in the Kansas Territory in 1854. Charles was wounded at Fort Titus in the Civil War.

George Aye also moved to the Kansas Territory, where he was listed at Ottumwa in Coffey County in 1859. His wife, Anna, may have died there.
