She was born April 4, 1860 on a farm west of Hazelwood, at the time located in Morgan County. She lived here until her marriage to George Jordan who died forty years ago. Just before her marriage the county line was relocated and the farm placed in Hendricks County. Thus was she born in Morgan County and married in Hendricks [County], in the same house. She is the last of a family of eighteen children.

She was an active member of the Plainfield Christian Church and auxiliary organizations and for a number of years was a Rebekah.

Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at the Hall funeral establishment here with the Rev. Mr. Lett, Danville Christian minister in charge of the service. Burial was in Maple Hill Cemetery.
