OBITUARY

Jonathan J. Hinkle was born in Lincoln County, North Carolina, March 6th, 1802, and at the age of 10 years he came to Clark County, Indiana, where he remained three years and then came to Bloomington, Monroe County, Indiana.

After serving an apprenticeship with Mr. Austin Seward at the blacksmith business, he went into the woods and paid for the farm on which he has since lived and where he died June 23, 1882. On Sept. 26th, 1830, he was married to Miss Catharine Lentz who still survives him. They raised a family of 11 children, 10 of whom are still living, and nearly all of them were present at his funeral that was held at Bethel Church four miles northeast of Bloomington on Sunday, June 25, at 1 o'clock.

Mr. Hinkle was a strictly honest man, quiet and peaceable with his neighbors and a man of great industry and, therefore, succeeded in procuring a good portion of this world's goods that he wisely distributed among his children.
Before his departure, he called his children around him and gave them his parting advice and benediction, told them that he had worked and toiled long enough on this earth and he was ready to go and was going to a better land.
