Karen, This is what I have on Jonathan-He was born on July 11, 1804 in
North Carolina, married Feb. 12, 1834 in Wayne County, Indiana and died
Sept 15, 1881 and buried in Jay Cemetery in Davis County. His place of
residence is N. C., Indiana and Iowa and was a farmer. His wife was
Drusilla Harris.Their kids were all born in Indiana or Iowa. William was
third child born May 1, 1837 in Wayne, Indiana. Total kids were 8.If I
stumble across anything else I will let you know. Oleta Elizabeth Benge
