Jonathan Shreve, with his family, moved on a flatboat built by himself down the Ohio River and located on a tract of timberland near the present site of Cross Plains, Indiana, where he lived a number of years, joining the Baptists and serving as a Justice of the Peace.
He sold his place and moved to Jennings County, Indiana, near Vernon, where he died.
He and his father served in the Indian war of 1816. John, the eldest son, remained at home, helping on his father's farm until he married when his father gave him a farm of eighty acres near Cross Plains.
