Biography

Jonathan Brown was born May 19, 1810 in Ohio, USA.[1][2]

On August 7, 1820 he's living with his parents and seven of his siblings in Franklin Township.[3]

In June 1830, he's living with his parents and three of his siblings in Franklin Township.[4]

On May 18, 1837, Jonathan married Catharine Ann McKarns in Columbiana County.[5][6] Their children are;

  1. Eliza Jane Brown
  2. John Brown
  3. Samuel Brown
  4. Susana Brown
  5. Nathan L. Brown
  6. Cyrus Thomas Brown
  7. Mary E. Brown
  8. Leander Frank Brown
  9. Freddie Brown

On June 1, 1840 he is a farmer living with his wife and two children in Franklin Township, Columbiana, Ohio, United States. Note: Free white male age 30-39, presumably himself (who is about 30); free white female age 20-29, presumably wife Catherine (who is about 26); free white female age < 5, presumably daughter Eliza (who is about 2); free white male age < 5, presumably son Jonathan (who is about 5).[7]

In June 1840 he inherits $334 from his father (in Columbiana County). A portion of the money is to be used to support his parents until their deaths.[8]

On September 21, 1850 he is a farmer living with his wife, Catherine, and their six children in Franklin Township.[9]

On June 4, 1860, he's a farmer living with his wife and their eight children in Franklin Township.[1]

On June 1, 1870, he's a farmer living with his wife and three of their children in Franklin Township.[10]

On June 4, 1880, the regular Franklin Township census shows that he is a farmer living with his wife and two of their children, Mary and Leander. [11] On the same day, the agricultural census shows that he owned 240 acres, 120 tilled, 120 woodland and forest. The value of land, fences, and buildings is $3,000; of farm implements $100, of livestock $400. The cost of building and repairing in 1879 was $25. The estimated value of all production for year is $560. Twenty acres of grassland were mown, 20 were not mown, and 15 were hay. There were 3 horses, 6 milk cows, 5 other cattle. Four calves were dropped. Two cattle were sold living, and one was slaughtered. 400 lbs of butter was produced. 25 sheep were on hand, 100 were sold living. 25 fleeces were shorn, 110 lbs. There were 14 swine. There were 50 barnyard poultry, which produced 75 dozen eggs. Seven acres of Indian corn produced 900 bushels. Eight acres of oats produced 200 bushels. Ten acres of wheat produced 84 bushels.[12]

On April 11, 1885, in Franklin Township, he signed his will, leaving his goods to family members. In it he mentions his wife, who dies before he does.[13]

Jonathan died December 12, 1888 at his farm. He's buried with his wife in Bethesda Cemetery, Columbiana County, Ohio.[2][14]

Research Notes

There's real confusion about Jonathan's birth date. The Find-A-Grave gravestone says he was 78y 6m 23d old when he died, making his birth 19 May 1810, not 4 Jul 1810.
