Clement JORDAN

Clement is my first cousin seven times removed through his grandparents, Dominicus and Hannah (TRISTRAM) JORDAN, my seventh great grandparents.  “By the will of his father, Clement became the owner of Richmond’s Island, where he made his residence and where a number of his children were born. He then removed to his farm on the mainland, just opposite to Richmond’s Island, and here his first wife Elizabeth died. Tradition says of Clement Jordan that he was always looked up to by his neighbors for advice, as a counselor in public trouble, and as a healer of disease. He was nearly always chosen on the committee of safety in the troublesome times with the Indians, and with the mother country previous to the Revolution. As a doctor, he had a widespread practice, treating diseases principally with herbs and roots collected by himself from the earth. His daughter Elizabeth has been heard to say that she with the rest of the children had spent days and weeks collecting them for him. His salves and ointments were made by himself or by his directions, and his patients came from far and near, even from Boston, to have their fever-sores, ulcers and other bad sores cured. As there was no way of traveling in those days, except on horseback or on foot, there were more or less persons stopping at the house the year round for advice and treatment. He was very zealous about attending meeting. His large families of children were always required to go, and having no conveyance, had to go afoot, the distance to church being five miles.”[1]

Clement JORDAN was born 28 April 1720/1 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME.[2]  He died 5 April 1789/90 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME.[3]  He is interred at Olde Spurwink Plantation Cemetery in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME.[4]  Clement married three times; first to Elizabeth ALLEN 29 April 1744 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME.[5]  Elizabeth was born 1716 in Worcester, Worcester, MA.[6]  She is the daughter of Reverend Benjamin and Elizabeth (CROCKER) ALLEN.  She died 23 May 1752 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME.  She is interred at the Second Parish Church next to her father.  He married second to Sarah GRAY 20 December 1755 in Falmouth, Cumberland, ME.[7]  Sarah was born about 1732 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME.  She died 2 April 1782 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME.  She is interred at Olde Spurwink Plantation Cemetery in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME.[8]  He married third to Sarah BARTLETT 11 April 1782 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME, in a ceremony conducted by Rev. Ephraim Clark; intentions filed 19 March 1782 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME.[9]  Sarah was born 7 December 1740 in Kittery, York, ME.[10]  She died 12 September 1827 in New Gloucester, Cumberland, ME.

Clement and Elizabeth Allen had the following children:

  1. Achsah was born in 1745 in Richmond’s Island, Cumberland, ME.[11] She died 5 May 1800.  She is interred at Swan Point Cemetery in Providence, Providence, RI.[12]  Achsah married Reverend Enos HITCHCOCK 13 June 1771 in Truro, Essex, MA, intentions filed 25 May 1771 in Beverly, Essex, MA.[13]  Enos was born 7 March 1744 in Springfield, Hampden, MA.[14]  He graduated from Harvard in Cambridge, Middlesex, MA in 1767.  He was a chaplain in the Revolutionary War.  He died 27 February 1803 in Providence, Providence, RI.[15]  He is interred at the Swan Point Cemetery in Providence, Providence, RI.[16]
  2.
