      JONATHAN POPE(1789/ - 1849/5/17) was the son of Hannah Tibbits from an earlier marriage; he was born in the United States and at the age of ten he migrated to Canada with his mother and step-father, John Sly.  In 1821 Jonathan Pope and John Sly bought Lot 13, Concession VII, Leeds; Pope took the north half and Sly the south.  On January 12, 1829, Jonathan Pope married Jerusha Lawrence(1809 - 1865), daughter of Robert Lawrence and Ruth Farnam, and sister of Brittann who married Runa Sly.  Two half-brothers married two sisters. Jonathan Pope built a log house on a rocky knoll near the present Ellisville Road where he and Jerusha raised nine children:
      George Jonathan b. 1830    m  Isabel Gillespie
      Lucinda  b. 1831           m  John Snider
      Miron  b. 1832             m  Minerva Sherwood
      Ruth  b. 1833
      Jediah  b. 1839
      Hannah Tibbits b. 1840     m        1 ?? Cadwell
         2 James Erwin
      Amy  b. 1841               m  Henry Chase
      Robert James  b. 1843      m  Olive Pratt
      Eanos Orin  b. 1846        m  Rebecca Halliday

         Jonathan Pope died in 1849 and is buried in Leeds Baptist Burying Ground; Jerusha died in 1865 and is buried next to him, but no stone marks her grave. Some of the family stayed in Leeds County and their descendants live in the area today.
