Two of his brothers and a sister went to Indiana and settled the same year. The red soil farms in Randolph Co., NC., had become worn out and unproductive, and finding good land at a moderate price in Indiana, many families "pulled up stakes" and migrated. When he reached his destination he had but twenty-five cents left, and bought a Dutch oven for the bread baking. His family domiciled in a shanty built on "forks" until he built a log house. All the floorings were split with an ax or handsaw. Grain was carried to mill on horseback by blazed trees. Ten acres of land were cleared in winter for cultivation the following summer. In the year 1845, he built a two-storied timber house, which was weather-boarded and ceiled, four miles from the Wabash river: On the north was the road from Howard to Annapolis; on the east was the Montezuma and Covington road; and near, the town of Sylvania. Nearly all who composed the community were Quakers, and a meeting house was soon built for worship. Peace and harmony prevailed. Jonathon died aged 92 years. There were fifteen children by two wives.
