  • Notes 
    • Jonathan Limpus was born on February 8, 1817 in Indiana. He was the son of Enoch Aaron Limpus and Sarah Sackett. He was probably named after his uncle, Jonathan Limmpus. Jonathan was about fourteen when his father died. His mother married a Mr Watts and left for Sangamon County, Illinois. It is not for sure when they moved.

      In 1837 Jonathan married Elizabeth Foxwell, the daughter of Lemuel Foxwell and Margaret Caffey. The Foxwells were living in Fayete County, Indiana according to the 1840 census. Jonathan probably met Elizabeth while visiting his Limpus relatives in Fayette County. The 1840 census shows Jonathan living in Bartholemew County, Indiana, which is just south of Johnson County, Indiana.

      Between the birth of John Manford Limpus in 1846 (3/31/46) and the birth of Henry Clay Limpus in 1848, they moved to Illinois. They ended up in Adams County. Jonathans's mother and sister lived in Sangamon County. Some of the Foxwells were in Adams County in 1850 but if they followed Jonathan or he followed them is not known. They probably lived in the north part of the county. Edwin'smilitary papers show that he lived near Woodville after the Civil War. It is assumed that this would be near the location of the rest of the family. Woodville is on the northern edge of Adams County, about half way between the Mississippi River and the eastern county line.

      Jonathan died on February 21, 1856. There is a family tradition that he was killed when a tree fell on him when he was clearing land. - [Daryl Limpus; 1983]
