Jonathan, the second son of Jonathan Norcross of Georgetown, now Bath, Maine, was born 1767.
He married Jane Atkinson on Lancaster, England. He married his wife in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
He had a farm in Wayne, Maine in 1798 of 100 acres. His brother, Nathaniel, two years younger, had a farm also in Wayne of 530 acres and another brother Deacon James had a farm of 50 acres at Readfield, Maine. . He had a family of nine children, for sons and five daughters.
Joel Norcross found no record of Jonathan's death, but suggested he probably died at Wayne. There is a large black granite gravestone in the North Wayne Cemetery which may be his.
He had three cousins, sons of his uncle Samuel Norcross who owned farms in Maine. Samuel, 62 acres in Hallowell, Philip, 84 acres in Hallowell, Daniel 186 acres in Hallowell, and Elijah 160 acres in Readfield, Maine.
