    (Research):From a posting at http://genforum.genealogy.com/jordan/messages/169.html:

    Looking for information on Edward Jordan from County Cork Ireland 1847. His only son Edward Watson Jordan immigrated to Charleston from County Cork in 1847. Lived at first #1 Zig-Zag alley, then 41 Church Street.

    Message sent to poster jcjordan@usa.net 2006-07-29; returned as undeliverable.

    From http://genforum.genealogy.com/thigpen/messages/653.html:

    On Sep. 29, 1831, Thomas Moore left two sons, Thomas (age 8) and James (age 7) in the South Carolina Orphan House at Charleston. The boys were let out as indentured servants in 1835, Thomas to N. G. Allen as a bricklayer, and James to Edward Jordan as a sailmaker. Family history says that Thomas, the father, was married to Mary Thigpen, and James named one of his sons Gilbert Thigpen Moore, which seams to verify this. The marriage would have been around 1822, location unknown. I am a descendant of James and I have no information on what happened to Thomas and I can not get back past Thomas the father. I can find no record of the Moore/Thigpen marriage and I do not know where Thomas came from when he placed the boys in the orphan house. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Edward Moore.

    In the 1870 census there is a Thomas in Charleston of the right age (47), a carpenter born in Ireland.

    Searching brsgenealogy.com for Edward Jordan in Cork Co in Griffith's Valuation returns:

    Griffith Jordan Edward Crosshaven Templebreedy Co. Cork
    Griffith Jordan Edward Town Of Cloyne Church Street Cloyne Co. Cork

    This is probably not of direct interest to us as it covers the period 1848-1864 and he immigrated 1832.
