A search of Ancestry.com indicates that his family lived at 523 Hamlet Avenue in 1920 and 1930 (his father was a blacksmith with the railroad). There is also a 1930 record of him living in Raleigh as a lodger (probably as a student, but not so indicated). In 1940 he is in Marion County, Alabama with his wife Louise Elizabeth Riggan and son Weymouth T. Jordan Jr., working as a college professor. This record also indicates that he lived in Hamlet in 1935.

He died 22 Nov 1968 in Leon County, Florida, and is buried in Roselawn Cemetery in Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida.

There is a record by an individual that he was a professor at Florida State University.
