I have found the following information on Jonathan Martin Derby. Sharon Moody Wellington is my aunt.Nancy Easter is a name I found on the web.

Notes from Sharon Moody Wellington
The first Derby to come to the United States from England was a Thomas Derby; he was a blacksmith which was a very important occupation at the time. It is believed that this Thomas Derby settled in New York State. The next derby of which there is any record is Jonathan M. Derby, we are unsure as to if this is the son or grandson or what relation he was to Thomas. According to the records in Addision County, Vermont, Johathan M. Derby was born in 1786, in New York, and married Clarissa V. Baker at Cornwell, Vermont, on May 12, 1807.

Clarissa V. Baker was born in Vermont in 1787, and was the daughter of Timothy Baker who was the son of Aaron Baker. Both Timothy Baker and Aaron Baker were Revolutionary War Soldiers in the Massachusetts group.

Jonathan and Clarissa moved after 1816 to St. Abrams Township in Licking County, Ohio and from there moved on to Iowa. They are both buried in the Baptist Church Cemetery in Blakesburg, IA. Jonathan died Oct. 6, 1864 and Clarissa died Aug. 6, 1861.

In my files I have Jonathan Martin Derby b. 1786 in England. Came to USA at age 3. Married 5-12-1807 to Clarissa Baker in Cornwall Vt, where his parents had settled in ca 1790.
Jonathan Derby,his wife and and twin sons Charles and Phillinder, 4 months old, moved wastward and settled in Licking County, Ohio. The twins were born in 1816 and George A. Derby was born to them March 5, 1820 in Licking County Ohio.
I have no information re this Jonathans parents.The above information is from a pamphlet from Wisconsin State Historical Society called "From Whence We Came" by Mary Anne Miller 1981.
Happy Hunting
