ALBERT D. JORDAN.
Among the native sons of Marion county who have continued to reside here, feeling that the opportunities offered
in this locality are equal to those to be found elsewhere, is Albert D. Jordan, a farmer and stockman, who owns
and operates two hundred acres of land in Knoxville and Franklin townships. He was born in a log house upon the
family homestead on the j5th of December, 1862, a son of Frederick and Henrietta (Prinikey) Jordan, both of whom
have passed away. They were pioneers of this county and aided in the work of improvement and development.
Albert D. Jordan passed his boyhood upon the home farm and received excellent training in agriculture and also
learned to value rightly the habits of industry and promptness. When not busy upon the farm he attended school
in the neighborhood and thus further fitted himself for the duties of life. In 1873 his parents removed to the
place where he now resides and he has lived there continuously since. For many years he has operated it and has
made it one of the finely improved properties of the township. It comprises two hundred acres of fine land and
returns to its owner a good income annually as he is energetic and progressive and follows the most efficient methods
in his work.
Mr. Jordan was married in 1893 to Miss Dora Heavner, a daughter of John Heavner, of Knoxville. She was born and
reared in this county and passed away here on the 17th of November, 1909, when forty years of age. She left a son
and daughter: Dee, thirteen years old; and Henrietta, nine years of age.
Mr. Jordan has always been a supporter of the republican party since attaining his majority and has ably served
his district as school director. Although not a member of any church he is especially interested in the work of
the Methodist Episcopal denomination and can always be counted upon to further any movement seeking the moral advancement
of his community. His life has been filled with useful activity and in achieving personal success he has also contributed
to the agricultural development of the county.
