About Charles Wesley Jordan, I

Date of burial is known (11/6/1773). Date of death is unknown. DOD was probably a couple of days earlier, but almost certainly not the same day as the burial, so I put 11/4/1773 c. for the DOD. Please don't use the Date of Burial as the DOD unless you have some evidence. And please add a note explaining your date of death.
