Gorden Family Genealogy Forum
I am a newcomer to the search for information on the Gorden clan. I am the son of Venus Tempe Gorden, daughter of Elbert Arden Gorden and Mary Ann Davison, E.A. Gorden was the son of John Henry Gorden and Martha A. Slaughter (buried in Schofield Cemetery, Polk Co., MO). John Henry Gorden was the son of Samuel O.Gorden and Elizabet Askrens. (Samuel O. Gorden is buried in the Gorden Cemetery at Halfway, MO.) He was the son of Elijah Gorden and Stacia Anne Gootee (both buried in the Gorden Cemetery at Halfway, MO.) Elijah was the son of Hugh Gorden and (possibly Sarah Owens???). Hugh was born 1735 and died in 1834).
I would appreciate additional information which any of you may have regarding the Gorden clan. I am using some information developed by a cousin in Oklahoma who visited the Gorden cemetery in Halfway, MO a few years ago.
