My birth name is Dorcas Arvilla Jordan-Cluck, (Jo) born in Herrin, Illinois. My gggg(4)grandfather was Thomas Jordan, Sr., who with six brothers, were the first white settlers in Franklin County, Illinois in 1804. Both my family (Jordan, Cole, Carter, White,Miles,
McDowell, etc) and my late husband's (James Edward Cluck) family (Cluck, Braden, Hall, McFarland, Spain, etc) have roots in Hamilton, White, Saline, Franklin and Williamson counties.
My cousin, Jacque Leehy-Dunning and I have photographed several of the cemeteries in Southern Illinois of our immediate and extended families in additional Southern Illinois counties. We have a webpage on the Jordan Ancestors and I manage one along with my husband's cousin Jim Cluck on the Cluck Ancestors. We like to maintain accuracy in our data as well as that on the graves. If you have some of these to post and would like to check, please feel free to contact any of us. Also, when we request transfer of memorials we do so because we have direct relationship and the data we are collecting is being passed down to our children and grandchildren. Thank you so much and God bless.
