Jonathan was born August 24, 1812 in Grainger County, TN. He was a child of John McCarty and Elizabeth Mayes and was known as Love McCarty.
On March 26, 1832 he married Satha (Sissy) Kirk in Grainger County, TN. They would move to Greene County, MO with Love's father in the spring of 1833. His first four children would be born on his father's farm. After John's death Jonathan would move to Madison County, AR where Martha Angeline McCarty was born and then with his brother Sterling, would return to Grainger County, TN where Levi, as he was known, was born. They returned to Greene County, MO before November 1849 because Cynthia dies there at that time. Levi was just under three years old when she died.
Jonathan would leave his children in the care of others and would join in the California gold rush and would be gone for years. When he returned he had a new wife, Elizabeth, who was about the same as his daughter Elizabeth, they wouldn't have any children.
The Civil War was hard on Jonathan, two of his children, Thomas and Levi and his brother Sterling would all die during the war.

Love liked to play the guitar and banjo and loved to make his grandchildren laugh.
