I have a Jonathan Van Pelt b. 1790 living in Lexington Co., S.C. in 1840. He was in Craven N.C. in 1830. I don't know where he was before that.He married Maria Gunter.They had 3 daughters Louisa, Missouri, and Ophelia.
Your Jonathan sounds like mine but I did not know he went to Florida nor did I know he came from New York.
