Looking for relatives “Jordan”

My name is Joyce Bean and I am trying to locate my relatives the “Jordans” who were related to my mother, Mary Jean Jordan. My mother was married and took the last name of my father Elaine Bean. I believe my mother grew up in the Maben community and later moved to Ackerman. If you have any information please contact me at 662-418-8556 or 662-744-4531.
