Query: Lavina Jordan Johnson, Hendricks County

Need anything after 1880 on: Lavina or Vina (Jordan) Johnson, b. 1854/55 in Indiana; m. James F. Johnson in 1871 in Hendricks County, IN. The 1880 Census has her as head of the household with her 4 boys: Walter Johnson b. 1872, John W. Johnson b. 1873, Isaac Newton Johnson b. 1874, George P. Johnson b. 1876. Family lore says she ran away and left the boys with their father. He remarried in 1885.

Also would like Vina's Father and Mother's death certificate which would have their parents’ names on it: Andrew J. Jordan b. 1825 in VA; Mary Ann Lipe b. 1830 in NC; Married 1870 in Hendricks County, IN.

I know that when Andrew died about 1862-66, there was a guardianship set up for the children and Lavina was 11. They lived in Pittsboro with John Nelson whom Mary Jordan married. Lavina left that household at 16 to marry James F. Johnson.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Lois B. Sutton, Gr-Grand-Daughter of Lavina Jordan Johnson
