Susannah Jones1

b. 1743, d. 17 January 1827
ChartsDescendants of Robert Heaton of Yorkshire, The Immigrant
Father*John Jones1,2,3
Mother*Mary West1,2,3
Birth*1743Susannah Jones was born about 1743.1
Relationship Note*Susannah (Jones) Heaton and Thomas Jones were reported to be siblings.2,3
Marriage*3 February 1761She married first Davis Heaton, son of Robert Heaton and Margaret Davis, on 3 February 1761 in St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.1,4,5
Residence*Davis and Susannah lived in the township of Hilltown Township, Bucks County.1
(Wife) Death18 June 1778Susannah became a widow when Davis Heaton died on 18 June 1778 at about age 40. She was left with five young children ranging in ages from 15 to 2.1,6
Marriage*11 December 1779She married second Joseph Morris, son of Morris Morris and Gwently Thomas, on 11 December 1779 in First Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia. It may not have been a happy marriage, as Joseph was described as a self-indulgent man, "a noisy fellow who never did much good, and was no credit to the name of Morris."7,8,9,2,3,10
Administration9 December 1783When her son Jonathan reached the age of 21 years, he was appointed Administrator of her husband's estate. As Administrator, Jonathan petitioned the Orphans' Court of Bucks County on 9 December 1783 to audit and settle the estate's account and also to appoint guardians for his minor siblings. Stating he had received and discharged several sums of money due to, and from, the said estate, by reason of the several contracts defending, he therefor prayed his Worships to appoint suitable men to audit and settle the same and make a report thereof the next Term. And likewise, to appoint guardians over his siblings, Robert, Jesse, Mary and Thomas Heaton, who were all minors under fourteen years of age.

Upon considering the prayers in the petition submitted by the Administrator, Jonathan Heaton, son of the deceased Davis Heaton, the court appointed Cadwallader Morris, John Kelly and Ebenezer Owen to settle the accounts of his Administration and make a report thereof. Cadwallader Morris was an older brother of Joseph Morris, who would later marry Jonathan's widowed mother, Susannah (Jones) Heaton.6
Guardianship9 December 1783On the same date of 9 December 1783, in response to the petition by her son Jonathan Heaton, Administrator of her deceased husband's estate, regarding her other children, the Orphans' Court of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, appointed her brother, Thomas Jones, guardian for her minor children, all under the age of 14 years, Robert, Jesse, Mary and Thomas Heaton, to take care of them, and their estate.11,6
(Widow) Estate13 December 1784Susannah's son, Jonathan, again petitioned the Orphans' Court after receiving a copy of the auditors' report listing the assets and liabilities of his father's estate. He stated that the debts against the Estate amounted to upwards of £200 more than the personal estate would discharge, as appeared by the settlement of the estate by the auditors, and accordingly requested the court to grant an order to sell the real estate of the deceased consisting of 100 acres of land situate in Hilltown Township in order to enable him to discharge the said debts. The court approved the request on 13 December 1784, to allow the sale of the said real estate by the Administrator, according to Law, and to discharge the debts in the petition mentioned and make a report thereof to the next Orphans' Court.12
Census US 1790*1790Susannah's husband, Joseph Morris, appeared on the 1790 census in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. His household included three individuals: one female believed to be his wife Susannah, one male aged 16 and over, believed to be Joseph, and one male under the age of 16 whom we believe was the couple's son, John.13
(Wife) Death1800Susannah became a widow for the second time when Joseph Morris died before the 1800 census was taken.14
Census US 1800*1800Susannah appeared as the head of her household on the 1800 census in the North Ward, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. She was likely a widow, and her household consisted of three people: two females aged 26 thru 44, and one male under the age of 10, who was too young to have been her son.14
Census US 1810*1810Susannah also appeared as the head of her household on the 1810 census in the Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. Two women resided in her household: one was over the age of 45, which would have been Susannah, and the other was over the age of 25.15
Census US 1820*7 August 1820Susannah was enumerated as the head of her household on the 1820 census taken on 7 August 1820 in the Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. She was recorded as age 45 and over, and only one other person, a female also aged 45 and over, resided with her.16
Death*17 January 1827She died suddenly on 17 January 1827 in Pennsylvania at about age 84.17

Bessie Mae Jordan1

b. 16 February 1914, d. 5 May 2000
Father*John B. Jordan2 b. 22 May 1884, d. 28 Apr 1976
Mother*Clara Cash2
Birth*16 February 1914Bessie Mae Jordan was born on 16 February 1914 in Texas.3,4
Research Notes*Bessie Mae Jordan and Bessie Mae Green were two separate people. Both were born in Texas within three years of each other, died three years apart, and several researchers have confused the two. Bessie Mae Green married Winters Hall Long about 1928; they remained in Texas and raised at least three children. Winters died in Texas in 1961, and his wife died in Texas in 1997.

The life of Bessie Mae Jordan, on the other hand, is not so straight forward. We believe she had nine husbands, and while we've identified two children, we suspect she may have had at least two more. We believe the surname of her first husband was LONG, which is how the confusion between these two Bessie Maes began, and we believe the surname of her last husband was COOPER. In between the first and last, the surnames of her husbands included, although may not have been limited to, FAHNHOLZ, whom she appears to have married twice, WILKINSON, GILSTRAP, PITTMAN, McCOY, HAMBY and FINNEY.5,6,7,8,1,9,4,10,11,12
(Daughter) Census US 192012 January 1920Bessie Mae was enumerated on the 1920 census taken on 12 January 1920 in the household of her father and stepmother in Linn Creek, Van Buren County, Arkansas. She was 5 years old.4
(Daughter) Census US 19302 April 1930Bessie was enumerated on the 1930 census taken on 2 April 1930 in the household of her father and stepmother in Red River, Stone County, Arkansas. She was 16 years old, could read and write, and had not attended school within the census year.10
Marriage*She married first ______ Long.1
Marriagebefore January 1948She married second, as his first wife, John F. Fahnholz, son of August Carl Fahnholz and Iva Mae Mills, before January 1948, when she changed her name with the Social Security Administration from Bessie Mae Long to Bessie Mae Fahnholz.1
Marriage*13 December 1955She married John F. Fahnholz, son of August Carl Fahnholz and Iva Mae Mills, a second time on 13 December 1955 in Trenton, Hitchcock County, Nebraska.1,13
Divorce*26 April 1956Four months after their second marriage, Bessie Fahnholz and John F. Fahnholz were divorced on 26 April 1956 in Boone County, Arkansas. John had filed against Bessie on 16 March 1956, stating they had married in Georgia on 13 December 1955, which may have been a typing error on the clerk's part. His reason for seeking a divorce was abbreviated as "Int." Bessie did not contest his request, and the court granted an absolute decree, stating that no alimony was granted, no property rights were affected, and that three children were affected by the decree. We've been able to identify only one child who was living at the time of their divorce, and we will continue to look for the other two children.14,15
(Mother) Marriage2 June 1956One month later, on 2 June 1956, John married a second time to Josie V. Mills, and John and Bessie's daughter, Rita Carol Fahnholz, appears to have remained with John and been raised by her father and stepmother.16,17,18,19
Marriage*28 July 1956Three months after her divorce from John Fahnholz, she married Isaac Cantral Wilkinson on 28 July 1956 in Clayton, St. Louis County, Missouri. He was 50 years of age and had not been married before, and Bessie was age 42.20

We believe her older brother, William S., was enumerated as "Jessie" in error because he was recorded as a son with the correct age of almost 4 for William. Jessie M. would have been about 2 years old. It's possible the census taker recorded the two children in his notes when he visited the home and then later, unintentionally, merged the two together when he completed his report at home.2

John B. Jordan1,2

b. 22 May 1884, d. 28 April 1976
Birth*22 May 1884John B. Jordan was born on 22 May 1884 in Coffee County, Tennessee.3,2,4,5
Name VariationHis full name was John Branch Jordan.4,5
Marriage*28 March 1911He married first Miss Clara Cash on 28 March 1911 in Paris, Henry County, Tennessee.1,6
Marriage*21 May 1918He married second Gertie Ussery on 21 May 1918 in Van Buren County, Arkansas.7,2,8
Census US 1920*12 January 1920Gertie and John B. Jordan were enumerated on the 1920 census taken on 12 January 1920 in Linn Creek, Van Buren County, Arkansas. John was 36 years of age and a general farmer working on his own account, and Gertie was 18 years old. They rented their farm, two of John's three children from his first marriage were enumerated with them in 1920, and the family's surname was spelled "Jaurden" by the census taker. Bessie M. was 5 years old and "Jessie S." was recorded as a son and 3 years and 10 months of age. The entry for this child is confusing to us because John's first three children were Bessie M., William S. and Jessie M. Bessie's age was correct; she would have been 5 years old. William S., not "Jessie" S., would have been almost 4 years old; and Jessie "M." would have been about two years old. It's possible the census taker recorded the two younger children in his notes when he visited the home and then later, unintentionally, merged the two children together when he completed his report at home.3
Census US 1930*2 April 1930Gertie and John B. Jordan were enumerated on the 1930 census taken on 2 April 1930 in Red River, Stone County, Arkansas. John was 47 years of age, worked as a farmer on his own account, and was an employer. Gertie was 28 years of age. John reported being age 27 at his first marriage to Clara Cash, and Gertie was recorded as age 20 at her first marriage, which was to John. They rented their farm, did not own a radio set, and five children were enumerated with them in 1930. John's two daughters from his first marriage, Bessie and Jessie, were ages 16 and 14, respectively; John and Gertie's two sons, Frank and Arthur, were ages 7 and almost 5 years. None of the children had attended school within the census year, and Bessie and Jessie could both read and write.9
Census US 1940*3 May 1940Gertie A. and John B. Jordan were enumerated on the 1940 census taken on 3 May 1940 in Glaize, Jackson County, Arkansas. John was 56 years of age, worked as a laborer making railroad ties, and had completed his education through the 3rd grade of elementary school. He had worked 30 weeks in 1939 for his income of $180, had worked 28 hours the week prior to the census, and had no other sources of income. Gertie was 38 years of age, did her housework at home, and had completed her education through the 4th grade of elementary school. They rented their house for $2 per month, and in 1935 the family had lived in rural Arkansas. Their three youngest children, all boys, were enumerated with them in 1940. Frank was 17 years old, had completed his education through the 6th grade of elementary school, and had not attended school within the census year. He worked as a laborer making railroad ties, had worked 16 weeks in 1939 for an income of $100, had worked 26 hours the week prior to the census, and had no other sources of income. His brother Arthur was 14 years old, had completed his education through the 6th grade of elementary school, and had attended school within the census year. Young Homer was 5 years old and had not yet attended school.10
Death*28 April 1976He died on 28 April 1976 at age 912
