Honora Jordan

ID# 190, (c 1845-1890)
     Honora Jordan was born about 1845 at Ballindaggan, Templeshanbo, Co Wexford, Ireland.1,2 She was the daughter of Michael Jordan and Mary Farrell.1 She immigrated to South Crosby Twp, Leeds County, Ontario, with her parents Michael Jordan and Mary Farrell between 1845 and 1847.3,4 She married John Murphy, son of Patrick Murphy and Ann Halliday, on 27 June 1870 at St Edward the Confessor Church, Westport, Leeds & Grenville County, Ontario.1,5 She died on 19 July 1890 of dyspepsia at South Crosby Twp, Leeds & Grenville County, Ontario.2

Research Note: I have assumed that Michael Jordan, Mary Farrell, and their children were born in Ballindaggin, Co Wexford because their daughter Margaret's tombstone says "native of Ballindaggin, County Wexford, Ireland."6

Research Note: Ann Jordan and Honora Jordan are probably the same person. Ann is found only on the 1851 census; Honora is not on the 1851 census. Ann's age on the 1851 census is 11; but all family members' ages are off by 5 years compared to the 1861 census. Neither Ann nor Honora have been found on the 1861 census. Honora's age on marriage registration, on 1871 & 1881 censuses, and on death record indicate birth year 1845-1847 which aligns with Ann's birth year if it is off by 5 years on the 1851 census. No other record of Ann has been found.
