I can't believe there's been no research on the family of Ann Burchett b:1802 Lawr (?), VA d:16 dec 1853 Carter Co, KY m:27 mar 1821 Absolem Pleasant Jordan b:bet1797/1800 of, Bedford, VA d:26 oct 1850 Carter Co, KY. Pleasant's lineage from his mother's side includes colonel Drury Stith and Robert Bolling. Absolem Pleasant JORDAN is the 4th great grandson of Thomas W ROLFE, son of Pocahontas Matoaka "Rebecca" Powhatan. There is also speculation that John Heron and/or Ann, parents of Susannah Her(r)on that m:1802 Benjamin Franklin Burchett b:1 dec 1772 may have native american roots. Ben and Susannah are Ann's parents. If anyone has researched this lineage, will you please critique the following?

A particularly annoying unresolved issue: Is this the Sarah Jordan that m:Levi Lyons?
