Marie Hawk was born in 1903 in Harrison, Ohio. She graduated from high school at 16 years of age. Two years later she attended college and graduated from University of Cincinnati. Influenced by her brother who was a school principal, she decided on a teaching career.
            One of the first teachers hired by the Mariemont Company in 1924, Marie taught first grade in the two-room temporary school building at the corner of Beech Street and Wooster Pike. She was one of four teachers who taught the two classes of pupils from Fairfax. She was just 21 years old and her monthly salary was around $90. She and her 14 students would taker their lunches over to the churchyard and watch the construction of Mariemont Church and Dale park School. The following year she taught fifth grade at the newly completed Dale Park Elementary School.
      On New Year’s Eve 1926 the Community Club organized a dinner meeting at the Mariemont Inn and there she met E. Boyd Jordan, and attorney. The following Christmas Day they were the first couple to be married at the Mariemont Community Church. They were both involved in Church activities and E. Boyd Jordan became the musical director. For many years they lived at Lytle Woods Place. In 1941 Mr. Jordan became the first Mayor of Mariemont and it was the first Village Meeting that Mars. Jordan came up with the suggestion of calling it the Town Meeting, and appointing a Town Crier.
