Thomas H. Jordan
Birth: Apr. 12, 1840
Death: Jul. 17, 1930

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Quartermaster in the Union Navy. His citation reads "On board the USS Galena during the attack on enemy forts at Mobile Bay, 5 August 1864. Securely lashed to the side of the Oneida, which had suffered the loss of her steering apparatus and an explosion of her boiler from enemy fire, the Galena aided the stricken vessel past the enemy forts to safety. Despite heavy damage to his ship from raking enemy fire, Jordan performed his duties with skill and courage throughout the action." (bio by: Don Morfe)
