      "Jonathan was a veteran of the American Revolution. His successful application for a veteran's pension in Gallia County, OH was dated March 19, 1834. Excerpts from his pension file, S9591, detail his military service.
      He enlisted in Greenbrier County VA as a Minuteman in June 1774, under Captain John Cook and Lieutenant William Gilliland and was sent to Ellis Fort at the "Little Levels". He continued there until the spring of 1777, when he was attached to Captain Hamilton's company and stationed at Jamor Rennix's for three months.
      In the spring of 1778, he went to Hampshire County VA and in October 1779 joined Captain George Bell's Company of Colonel Posten's Regiment and was promoted to Ensign and served a tour of three months. In 1780, he served a further tour of duty under the same officers.
      After the war, Jonathan was an itinerant schoolmaster and was teaching in Gallia County, OH when he was 90. He went to Wilkes County North Carolina in 1783, to South Carolina in 1790, to Georgia in 1791, to Greenbrier County VA in January 1792 and to Harrison County in 1808. On January 28, 1829, he was in Gallia County, OH. In 1833, he spent four months in Jefferson county, Indiana. On July 7, 1835, Jonathan applied for a transfer of pension from the OH roll to VA, as he had "...returned to Harrison County, where my children live."
