Gov. Jonathan Jennings

Surnames: Jennings; Hay
Does anyone know if a family tree is available for Governor Jonathan Jennings? I've seen the marriage to Annie Hay, and read all the official bios I can find online. I find ancestor, but no descendant information.

There is another marriage of a Jonathan Jennings to a Clarissa Barbee in 1827. However, his official bios list only the marriage to Annie Hay. Does anyone know when/where Annie died? buried? Did the governor marry Clarissa or was there a second Jonathan Jennings? a son, perhaps, married Clarissa?

Census data below indicates he had children, or at least some children were living in his household in 1820.

1820 Harrison Co., IN – Corydon
020010 01110
In this household are daughters 10-16 and 16-26; woman 26-45;
Males 2 10-16; 26-45
Jonathan was born in 1784 according to his bio, which fits this census data of a male 26-45.

I find it unusual that there's no personal information available on someone who was the first governor. Can anyone help me?
