|Notes: Jonathan was born of German-English ancestry. When he was 8 or 9 years old
he was moved by his parents to Salamonie Township, Huntington County, Indiana.

on the old homestead amid scenes of pioneer life, assisting in making a farm out of
the forest and living with his parents until after his marriage.|
Upon his marriage in 1857 Jonathan moved to a 40-acre tract of timberland which he owned in Salamonie Township. That was where his wife died in 1864.
Jonathan was a soldier in the Civil War and a member of Company I, 75th Indiana Infantry, and was in the Fourteenth Army Corps. He was in all the engagements of the Atlanta campaign, and was with Sherman on his march from Atlanta to the sea and through the Carolinas to Washington, where he participated in the grand review at the close of the war.
Afterwards Jonathan sold his land and bought 80 acres one mile north, which he owned for about four years. In 1867 he married his second wife. He soon bought 235 acres along the Salamonie River in Jackson Township, Wells County, where he lived until November 1885. He then sold his land and moved to Washington County, Arkansas, were he acquired a 95-acre farm located 8 miles east of Fayetteville and in the White River Valley.
