Biography

BirthMar 28, 1719Lancaster, Worcester Co., MA, USA
Mil. Serv.1740Jonathan served as 2nd Lieutenant in a battalion of 500 men raised in Massachusetts to join the expedition Vice-Admiral Vernon against Carthagena.
MarriageFeb 4, 1746/47JWH:p. 308, Feb 22, 1741/2; p. 311, 3,4,1742; A.L. White: marriage Feb 4, 1739/0; MLM: Feb. 4, 1745/46
Milit-Begbetween 1755 and 1756Putney, Windham Co., VT, USA, MLM, Nourse: Served under Capt. Joseph Whitcomb from March to end of the year, 1755; also in 1756, enlisting from Leominster. The Lancaster men were ill clad, often insufficiently provisioned and suffered much from the rigors of the climate in their Canadian barracks at Ft. Cumberland (near Bay of Fundy)

CJV:There was another Jonathan, from Lancaster, who married Mary Houghton, also from Lancaster. They married on Jan. 20, 1725. Record from the Vital Records of Lancaster, MA to 1850.
The Jonathan Houghton who was the Lt. is shown as being from Lancaster. He served 7/14/40-42 under Capt. John Prescott, and went on an expedition to the West Indies.
There are two other entries for Jonathans in the military:
Pvt. Jonathan from Leominster, 2/15/55-11/25/55, under John Spafford
Pvt. Jonathan from Lancaster, 9/15/55-11/30/55 (died), under Samuel Flint.
These military records are from on-line databases entitled "Massachusetts Soldiers in the Colonial Wars". Cannot tell who is who from the above entries
Census1771Putney, Windham Co., VT, USA
Death1808?Bolton, Worcester Co., MA, USA, only MLM gives this date
ProblemCJV: JWH gives this Jonathan as son of Lt. Jonathan Houghton and Thankful White. Not in Leominter VRS with other sybs.
CJV: Unclear if all citations to a Jonathan of Putney VT are the same Jonathan of Leominster MA; Lt. Jonathan's son Jonathan was in Putney from 1776 to 1784 and all the Putney citations may refer to him, not his father.
ProblemCJV: Unclear if Rufus and James are his children; not in Leominster VRS with other children; both given by JWH (with Jonathan who married Joanna Burgh, who was not his son). Both born 12 years after other children.
