Asa JORDAN

Asa is my fifth cousin four times removed; we are related through Reverend Robert and Sarah (WINTER) JORDAN, his fourth great grandparents, my eighth great grandparents.  Asa and Harriet are enumerated with her parents along with son Albert in the 1850 census taken in Litchfield, Kennebec, ME.[1]  The 1860 census finds the family in Gardiner, Kennebec, ME.[2]  The 1870 census finds the family back in Litchfield, Kennebec, ME, for which I find that they are actually at the Gardiner post office of Litchfield, Kennebec, ME.[3]  In the 1880 census the family is enumerated in Gardiner, Kennebec, ME.[4]

Asa JORDAN was born 1821 in Richmond, Sagadahoc, ME.[5]  He was the son of David and Mary (LANDER) JORDAN.  He died 7 March 1905 in Gardiner, Kennebec, ME.[6]  He was interred at Oak Grove Cemetery in Gardiner, Kennebec, ME.[7]  Asa married Harriet WESTON 11 April 1846.[8]  Harriet was born in 1817.[9]  She was the daughter of Stephen and Abigail (LAMBERT) WESTON; the book The Family Jordan incorrectly shows her the daughter of Hiram and Della L. WESTON.  She died 12 January 1883 in Gardiner, Kennebec, ME.[10]  Her body is interred at Oak Grove Cemetery in Gardiner, Kennebec, ME.[11]

Asa and Harriet had the following children:

  1. Albert was born 7 September 1846 in Litchfield, Kennebec, ME.[12]
  2. George E. was born 1856 in Gardiner, Kennebec, ME.[13] He died 1927.[14]  He was interred at Oak Grove Cemetery in Gardiner, Kennebec, ME.[15]  George married Della F. POWERS 20 November 1884.[16]  Della was born 21 March 1865 in Bowdoin, Sagadahoc, ME.[17]  She died 1 August 1894 in Litchfield, Kennebec, ME.[18]  Della was interred in Oak Grove Cemetery in Gardiner, Kennebec, ME.[19]
