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]
