Jonathan married Sarah Cook circa 1845-1846, likely while still in Bedford County, Tennessee, but no marriage record has been located. Sarah's name is known from the second marriage record for their son John Jacob Tune and also from "Ozark Heritage Dent County Missouri Area Cemeteries & Families" Vol III 1994 by Ken Fiebelman of Salem, Missouri.

Jonathan & Sarah Cook Tune had these eight known children:

Jonathan Tune was last seen on the 01 June 1900 U. S Federal Census living with his son Thomas David Tune in Maries County, Missouri. No record of his death has yet to be located.

May you rest in peace.
