Hi Lee, I read through the info and can guess that my Jonathan R. may be the same but There were many Jonathan In that time period are you sure that Your grandma Becky was this Particular Jonathan's Daughter. It seems like you have not ruled out other Jonathans. It may be also that the jonathan who fathered your Becky was one who did not get counted on the censes or Just put john on the paper. I have been poring through the Censes info.I have come cross several John and Jonathan's. I have been concentrating on ruling out the other Jonathan R. as possibilities before I can say that this Jonathan R. is my g g grandfather.My grandmother Opal said that Jonathan R.was Delphia husband but she never knew what the R. stood for. Did your g becky say Jonathan or Jonathan R. specifically.and did she say he was married to Delphia because my g Opal gave me the names of her Aunts Jonathan R and Delphia's girls and none were named Becky. Although depending on your becky's age she could be his daughter through a first marraige if he had been married before Delphia. I have to go now I will post another message later today.with the info I have.
