  • Notes 
    • The Jordi family shares nearly identical Y-DNA with the families Joder, Zimmerman, Martin, and Ernst. The DNA evidence implied that these five families share a common ancestor, born ca. 1000 AD. . . . The Jordi and Joders may have indirectly taken their names from Theodor of Graymont, the first bishop of Octodorum (now Martigny in Canton Valais).

      Jakob Jordi did not initially go far from Ste. Marie-aux-Mines. In 1715, he is identified as a member of the Amish congregation in Belfort, France, some 75 miles south of Ste. Marie-aux-Mines. Jakob Jordi of Belfort and his wife (identity unknown) had at least three sons. [1, 2]
