Daughter of Johnson & Robinson, perhaps Littleberry Johnson & Mary Robinson. In 1880 census, but husband Jordan is widowed in 1900 census

Grandmother, Mrs. M.H. (Mary) Robinson born about 1772 in England, is living with family in 1850 census of Columbus, Georgia.

Granddaughter of Edward & Ann Clayton Johnson of England; her uncle was Lawrence Johnson, the famous type-founder of England and Philadelphia.

Per a history of Pike County, Alabama, Jordan Howell's father was Edward Howell. Edward was born in Scotland or North Carolina while Jordan's mother was born in New York or North Carolina; Jordan was listed consistantly on censuses per himself and all children as born in North Carolina.

A son of Jordan and Elizabeth Johnson Howell, Charles Howell, had a daughter Mary who married Cornelius Lamar whose sister, Mary Lamar, married Howell Cobb, the US and CSA statesman.

They were also related, per same history referred to above found at http://alabamapioneers.com/index.php/Biographies-of-Notable-Not-so-Notable-Alabamians/murphree-thomas-marion-pike-county.html, to Varina Howell Davis, wife of Jefferson Davis. I've not yet determined what their link to Varina is.
