Jonathan was one of the founding members of the Congregational Church in Warren. In 1750 he was appointed to "supply the church with preaching" and it was probably at his home six years later that the organisation of the church was finally achieved with the founding, covenanting, members attending the first "gathering" of the Church on 22 September 1756. In the following year he was appointed to a committee to select a mnister.16
Jonathan made his will in Kent, Litchfield County, ConnecticutG, on 12 June 1772, naming as beneficiaries his wife Ann, and his sons Justus, Jonathan and Reuben.1
Jonathan's widow Ann made her will in Litchfield County, ConnecticutG, in June 1783, naming as beneficiaries her sons Justus and Reuben, and her grandsons William Sackett, Filer Sacket, Jesse Sacket and Almeron Sacket. Her son Justus was appointed executor.1
