Descendants of John Gordon, born 1736 in Scotland

My great grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Gordon, and I can trace the Gordon line back to John Gordon, born 1736 in Scotland.  He was married to Mary Hall, and they had one son Obediah.  Obediah Gordon was born in November 1760 the child of John and Mary. He married Elizabeth Gadberry on December 16, 1784, in Henrico County, Virginia. They had one child during their marriage Obadiah. He died in 1801 in Henrico County, Virginia, at the age of 41.

Obadiah Gordon was born on September 3, 1795, in Henrico County, Virginia, the child of Obediah and Elizabeth. He married Mary Ann Miller on January 13, 1835, in Daviess County, Kentucky. They had one child during their marriage. He died on May 9, 1883, in Daviess County, Kentucky, having lived a long life of 87 years.

Mary Elizabeth Gordon was born on July 10, 1836, in Daviess County, Kentucky, the child of Obadiah and Mary Ann. She married James Herbert Lester Rev. Owen on December 18, 1854, in Daviess County, Kentucky. They had one child during their marriage. She died on November 20, 1915, having lived a long life of 79 years.

Their daughter Ada Ann Owen was my grandmother.
