Jonathan, son of Asa and Lucy Barker, was born at Medford, Massachusetts, September 18, 1785 [sic]. At the age of eight years he moved with his people to Bridgton, Maine, where his father, one of the pioneers, subsequently developed a fine farm. Jonathan attended the public schools in his new home, and when he had attained his majority, turned his attention to the lumber business. In later life he owned the canal boats on the Cumberland canal. He was a prominent citizen, and was justice of the peace for many years.

In 1806 Jonathan Barker married (first) Mehitable Farnum, of Sebago, Maine, who bore him two children : Elmira, May 7, 1807; and Timothy, June 8, 1809 [grandpa of Jerusha].
