Gorden/Jordan multiple spellings TX, WA, OR, AK

Still looking for my maternal grfather. I think his father was Andrew Jordan or Gorden. Andrew married twice, once to Nancy Bolton, had several sons including Frank (Or Albert) around 1892. Another son was Wiley and the youngest was Calvin. I think maybe they changed the name from Jordan to Gorden and moved to Baylor TX before 1900. Andrew may have become Alfred then and Frank may have become Albert. Very mysterious people. My grandfather was calling himself Frank Gorden around 1920 when he and my grandmother Vernah met in Arkansas and then moved to Washington and Oregon where their children were born in 1923 (Wiley) and 1926 (Seguine). My grandmother left him and returned to OK City before 1928. We have no info on him after that. I believe he was a car salesman and a gambler. They had a close friend in Portland Oregon named Pauline White. Been searching for years and come up with NOTHING. Help!
