Jordan Family Line

I have recently taken an interest in this line. So far much of what I have learned has come from Ancestry.com which you can see below. Now I plan to find documentation for the folks listed here. This line intersects with my Fleming line which goes back to the Kings of Scotland and to Charlemagne, although I haven't documented any of that.
