a. Note:   BIRTHPLACE: From Earl Jobe per research trip to Virginia
  "I�m now completely convinced that my gggrandfather Jonathan, Nathan�s firstborn, was born there in Shenandoah Co.,, despite the information shown in the 1850 Lawrence Co.,, KY census which shows Tennessee.
  I think that simply means his young, developing years were spent in Tennessee and it was from his home in Tennessee that he went to Russell Co., Virginia as a young man to seek his fortune. Thus when he talked of his home, he referred to Tennessee. Therefore, when the census taker visited in 1850, Jonathan was perhaps not in the house nor available (he was 75 yrs old) and he or the person answering the census taker�s questions gave Jonathan�s birthplace as Tennessee. I can understand that wrong answer and I no longer have a problem with it." ------------

  Note from descendant Earl Jobe: "In the census of 1850, either Jonathan or someone speaking for him gave his birthplace as Tennessee. While his young years (from about age four on) were likely spent in Tennessee, it is fairly obvious that his birthplace is Virginia and, most likely, Shenandoah Co., Virginia. There is no way to account for the answer given in the 1850 census. - Earl M Jobe" --------------------------
