Marilla M. JORDAN

Marilla is my third cousin four times removed and fourth cousin three times removed; we are related through her second and third great grandparents, Nathaniel and Dorothy (HILL) JORDAN, my sixth great grandparents.  She is also my fourth cousin five times removed through Roger and Mary “Sarah” (CROSS) HILL, her third and fourth great grandparents, my eighth great grandparents.  And lastly she is my sixth cousin seven times removed through her fifth great grandparents, John and Elizabeth (BIRCHARD) ALCOCK, my ninth and twelfth great grandparents.  When dealing with my Maine relations, the relationships get rather complicated and confused as you can see above.  I didn’t also include that many of my great grandparents also distant cousins too.  Partly due to the isolation of the area there wasn’t a lot of new people in and out of the areas, so families tended to marry those they lived near or new well.  Many times a brother would marry the sister of his sister’s husband, or other such combinations, thereby making the relations ever more complicated.  Add into the age differences from oldest to youngest sibling the generations get set off a bit therefore making a great grandparent a ninth AND a twelfth.  Marilla and James outlived all three of their children, which at this time I cannot find any trace of them by name or birth.  The only record I have of their existence is only on the 1880 and 1900 census.[1]  Marilla and James were enumerated in the 1880 census taken in Janesville, Greenwood, KS.[2]  They were enumerated in the 1900 census taken in Leon City, Little Walnut Township, Butler, KS.[3]  And their final census was in 1910 in Whittier, Los Angeles, CA.[4]

Marilla M. JORDAN was born 11 April 1841 in Webster Androscoggin, ME.[5]  She was the daughter of Benning Wentworth and Lydia Ann (CHASE) JORDAN.  Marilla died in 1918.  She is interred at Rose Hills Cemetery in Whittier, Los Angeles, CA.[6]  She married James Alfred THING 17 March 1863 in Kennebec, ME.[7]  James was born 9 March 1828 in Hallowell, Kennebec, ME.[8]  He was the son of Levi and Mary (MARTIN) THING.  He died in 1922.  James is interred at Rose Hills Cemetery in Whittier, Los Angeles, CA.[9]
