  1. Are your Whites and/or Churches related to the ones that came on the ‘Mayflower’? Richard Church b:1608 and Peregrine White b: 1620 in Massachusetts Bay are both 10th GGFs of my wife.

    Who is your Jordan immigrant ancestor?


    1. Joe, Don’t know of any Mayflower connection, though it is possible. Haven’t attempted to trace related families back that far.

      Can only trace our immediate Jordan family back to William Jordan, residing in King & Queen County, Virginia, in mid-18th Century.
