    This is a tentative identification. Traditionally the partner of John Proctor Trott has been named Jona Brooks", but New London town and land records uniformly record the name as "Jona. Brooks" indicating the abbreviation of his given name. This is the only man of appropriate age, surname, and prominence living in New London at the time.

Jonathan married Mary Deshon, daughter of Henry Deshon and Unknown, on 20 May 1794 in New London CT. (Mary Deshon was born in 1775 in New London CT and died on 20 May 1794.)
