Jonathan6 (James5, Jonathan4, John3, Robert2)

181. Jonathan6 Quimby (James5, Jonathan4, John3, Robert2), born 1761/2. He served in the Revolutionary War, and may be the Jonathan Quimby, who enlisted from Wakefield April 9th, 1777 in Captain James Carr's Company at age 19 along with Paul SAMBOURN - see War file extraction following.. The 1810 census Jonathan is enumerated in Wakefield with sons, except for Eliphalet who is living alone. Although he does not die until 1823, I do not see him enumerated on the 1820 census. From birth and death certificates we find the following details; his eldest son (Daniel) names his mother as Dorothy MORDOUGH, and notes his father was born in Brentwood or Wakefield and his mother was born in Exeter. It appears from census entries that he was later married to Jerusha unknown, she born in Greenland.
