Other Jordans

A.D. Jordan, Jr. is the only living grandchild of Dock Gilbert Jordan (1884-1971). Dock was Lon’s brother and was known to our family as “Uncle Gib” and he lived a mile or so from the homeplace. It was Uncle Gib who put food through the window to the measles-infected Lon Jordan household when Gabriela was too sick to care for her family.

 

AD (Andrew Dock) has come to several of our reunions and has expressed an interest in bringing these two branches of the Jordan clan closer together. AD was born in Anson County, NC on September 4, 1956. He attended Chesterfield High School and graduated from Baptist College in North Charleston with a degree in Criminal Justice. He has served on the Charleston County Council. He is married to the former Lorraine Anne Knapek and they have one daughter Lorena Anne born on November 22, 1985 in Charleston. She currently attends the University of SC.

 

Andrew’s brother, Charles (named after grandfather Gib), died when he was 3 years old of cancer (April 13, 1963).  AD has bought the “Uncle Gib” homeplace which had passed from the family into private hands, and has spent a lot of time and money restoring the home (similar inside to the homeplace). He hopes to retire there sometime. A photo is below. Uncle Gib was married twice, first to Lorena Smith and later to Viola Crowley. Lorena died in 1932.  Their children were Andrew D. Jordan, Sr. (who operated a large trucking company in Ruby for a long time) and Dorothy Lorena Jordan.
