    • When his sister, Barbara, and her husband, John Philhower, were instrumental in starting the Methodist Church in Peapack, Jonathan agreed to be the boss carpenter for the construction. This was in 1838 and 1839. He boarded with his sister, because his family were housed in Roxbury Township, too far to commute. In 1847, they sold their property in Roxbury, and Jonathan moved his family to Chester in Morris county, NJ In 1853, the family moved once more, to Dunmore, PA, east of Scranton. Here they spent their last days, on a farm in what was then Luzerne County, PA.
