Note: This surname is also rendered in English as YORDE and in German as JORDY.  The twentieth century transcription of the minutes from German to English incorrectly rendered  “Jordy” as “Jordan” – and when the surname began appearing in 1832 beginning with “Y” instead of “J”, he was thought to be a different person and “licensed” and assigned Miller-Raker #178.  Gibble’s 1951 History of the East Pennsylvania Conference, page 62, gives a brief biography. Mrs. Yordy is the daughter of a Martin Musser who died 9/9/1802.
