Jonathan Burleson was one of the county's earliest settlers. His father was John Burleson, who with his brother, Joseph, and their families, came into Madison Co in 1808.
In 1813, Jonathan BURLESON married Elizabeth Byrd, daughter of Rev. Williams Byrd and Lydia Adair Byrd. They moved into Morgan Co about 1816. Their second child, Aaron Adair Burleson, born Aug 1, 1816, was the first white child born in Morgan Co. He became a doctor and was the probable builder of the Burleson-Hinds-McEntire house in Decatur and died in Memphis, Tennessee, aged about 80 years.
