Ann Jordan

ID# 5093, (c 1840-)
     Ann Jordan was born about 1840 in Ireland. 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 1847.2,3

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.
