I am researching the Jordan family.  I found Arthur Jordan in the 1930 Iowa Census, Concord Township. His son William is my children's grandfather.  William was adopted when his father died, his mother died previously.  The adoption had to be with 18 months of the 1930 census. Do you have any information on Arthur Jordan? The census is hard to read but it states he is 89 years old - which seems a little old to me.

He was in the CCC and was drafted straight into World War II. He served for 22 years and was stationed at Fort Ryle, Kansas and in Schweinfurt, Germany in the early 1950's. He was married 2 times; first to my grandmother Dorthy Waldum in the late 1940's and second to Mabel Luce in 1971. Arnold had moved to Sioux City, Iowa with his family sometime in the early 1930's. His parents are Art B. Jacobs and Lilly Willowby. He may have these siblings; Jack, Marian, and Virginia. After he was retired from the Army he went back and lived the rest of his life in Sioux City, Iowa where he died January 06, 1975. On his social security application he was living at 515 Main Street in Sioux City, Iowa as of Jan 26,1937. He was working for Western Union at the time in Sioux City also.
