Johnathan was born in new York about 1786 & died September 22, 1867. Mary Jaynes was born in Pennsylvania about 1795& died October 10, 1857. They were married in New York about 1809. We don't know when they moved to the Oakford area, but Johnathan was an early voter in Menard county in 1839. He helped with building the Lynn Chapel there in Oakford. They lived there in the Oakford area until they died and are buried in the Oakford cemetery.
