Hi David, I have a very difficult question to ask. My grandmothers family are gordons. We know for certain her father is Claud Edward Gordon and his father is Charley or C.H. Gordon. Charleys father is believed to be Jasper Gordon and i found a Jasper Gordon on a number of censuses with James Gordon and am wondering if this is the same James Gordon that is the son of your Elijah Gordon. There is a story in our family that i recently ran across that talks about jasper running away from his mother and stepfather and moving in with a james gordon and family and taking on their last name. If you know about any of this and you know for certain that jasper is in fact his son then i would love to see proof or anything you have. I found a family tree on ancestry.com that shows james gordon was with or married to a unknown bolt or belt and had a william jasper gordon. I am hoping someone out there can help me and you seem to know a lot about this family.
