I wonder where he could have been?
The earliest "honest to goodness" paper trail is the 1810 Census where he is found in Hopkins CO., KY. But his oldest son is listed as being born 1789 in PA. I haven't been able to find Jonathan & Ann (TROVER) HOWTON's marriage licesne. So I was hoping to be able to find them in the 1790 census.
To many different opinions on Ancestry and the Yates Publishing marriages list them marrying in Kentucky. But they have NO copy of the marriage license, record or bond and they don't have a county listed in KY for this marriage to have taken place.
Thanks for your time on looking this up for me, I do appreciate it.
