Myles Haidan1

b. 1737, d. 15 December 1815
Birth*1737Myles Haidan was born in 1737 in Pennsylvania.2
Research Opinion*Myles Haidan was enumerated on the 1790 census in Washington County, Pennsylvania, as "Miles HEATON". After trying unsuccessfully, for a long time, to place him in one of the numerous Heaton families in Washington and Greene counties in Pennsylvania, we found his will. The transcribed copy we read showed clearly that he had signed his name "Myles HAIDAN." So, yes, we have finally accepted that he was actually Myles Haidan -- and not one of our Heatons.3,1,4
Name-SpellingsHis HAIDAN surname was often spelled with variations of Hayden and Heaton.5,2
Relationship Note*The relationship between Myles Haidan and Miles Heaton is unclear to us at this point. They may even be the same man. Each had a wife named Margaret and each had children with similar, almost identical names. They lived in the same place and, if not the same man, may have been father and son. Obviously, more research is needed.

Heaton Sources II wrote about Myles Heaton in Chapter 18, "Robert Heaton of Bucks County", Pennsylvania in the section of the chapter reserved for families and individuals who the author believed were not directly connected to the Robert Heaton (Yorkshire) branch of Heatons, but who had lived in the eastern Pennsylvania area about the same time -- or were Quakers, as the Yorkshire Heatons were. The author stated that he had "not been able to sort out these families."

Then, in Chapter 31, "Mid Atlantic Heatons", Miles Heaton was included with a large number of additional Heatons the source identified as Heatons who had lived in Maryland, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Kentucky, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and beyond that he had not been able to place with their correct families. Pennsylvania had the longest list and included Miles Heaton.6,2,1,5,7
Marriage*He married Margaret ______.2
Revolutionary War*During the Revolutionary War, Myles served with Captain Ferley's Company of the Pennsylvania Militia.2,5
Taxation*1782Myles Haidan, his name spelled "Miles Hayden", appeared on the taxpayer exoneration list in 1782 in the township of Morgan, Washington County. He was probably exonerated from taxes that year as a result of his service in the Revolutionary War.8
Taxation1783 In 1783, he was listed as a taxpayer, his name spelled "Miles Haydan", in the township of Morgan, Washington County. He was taxed £70 on 200 acres of land, £10 for 3 horses, £10 on 4 cows, and £5 on 5 sheep, for a total tax of £95.9
Land Records*10 November 1784 On 10 November 1784, Myles received a warrant to purchase 200 acres of land, including his settlement, on Ten Mile Creek, Washington County. Two documents were reviewed and his name was spelled "Myles Haydan" on one and "Myles Haidan" on the other. The land was described as joining lands of Christian Gaiman and Frederick Arnold. Miles was to pay at the rate of £10 per acre, providing the same land was first purchased from the Indians.10
Taxation1785 In 1785, Myles's name was spelled "Myles Haidan" when he was again listed as a taxpayer in the township of Morgan. He was taxed £70 on 200 acres of land, £9 for 2 horses and £10 on 3 cows, for a total tax of £89.11
(Head of Household) Census 17901790The names of the heads of household on the 1790 Census taken in Washington County, Pennsylvania, were not later alphabetized so it's possible to get a feel for relatives and other neighbors who probably lived nearby. On page 170, Daniel Heaton is near the top of the census page, and his son David is across from him on page 171. William Heaton is next to David. Near the bottom of page 170, Isaac Heaton is listed between his sons John and Henry. Jonah "Eaton" appears a short distance above them on the same page. John Heaton and William "Eaton" appear near the top and bottom of page 159, another Isaac Heaton is on page 160, Miles Heaton on page 169, John "Hitton" on page 183, Ebenezer Heaton on page 192 and another John Heaton on page 199.

Miles's household consisted of seven people, 1 free white male aged 16 and over, 3 free white males under 16, and 3 free white females.12,13,14,4,15,16
Census 1800*Myles Haidan appeared on the census in West Bethlehem, Washington County, Pennsylvania. The household consisted of 9 people, 1 free white male over the age of 45, 1 free white female over the age of 45, 3 free white males aged 16 thru 25, 2 free white females 10 thru 15, and 2 free white females under 10. Four members of the household were under 16 and two members were over 25.17
Will*1810Myles Haidan was mentioned in the 1810 will of Humphrey Montgomery of Washington County, Pennsylvania.6
Will*2 December 1815Myles Haidan made his will dated 2 December 1815 in Washington County, Pennsylvania. He mentioned his beloved wife Margaret, his two sons James Haidan and Myles Haidan Jr. and three daughters Ann, Elizabeth and Olivia. He left bequests also to Myles Montgomery, Daniel Montgomery and David Power alias HAIDAN. He first directed that all of his lawful debts be paid out of his personal estate except two notes, one in the hands of his son James Haidan and the other in the hands of his son Myles Haidan. He gave one-third part of his real and personal estate to his wife Margaret during her natural life, or if she decided to have the plantation sold, she was to have a child's part out of his whole estate to be at her disposal at her death. He bequeathed $50 to each of three minor boys, to be paid by his executors, without interest as they became of age. Myles and Daniel Montgomery were described as the sons of Humphrey Montgomery deceased, and David Power alias Haidan was not identified further. He gave $30 to each of his unmarried daughters, Elizabeth Haidan and Olivia Haidan and all they claimed in the house as theirs, and whatever house furniture his wife Margaret didn't need. His will directed that after deducting the legacies mentioned, namely the two notes he gave to his sons, the $50 to each of the boys and the $30 each to his two unmarried daughters, the remainder of his estate, real and personal, was to be sold and the proceeds bequeathed in equal part or shares to his son James a share, to his son Myles a share, to his daughter Ann a share, to his daughter Elizabeth a share, and to his daughter Olivia a share. He directed that all of the grain in the stock yard or now growing, and corn, was to be considered, and the winter's meat then preparing was to be for the use of the immediate family. His wife Margaret was to have the exclusive privilege of the dwelling house and fuel during her natural life or until the plantation was sold, and his son James and his son-in-law Simon Litzenberg were to have the privilege conjointly of the house and garden where they were then living, and fuel, until the place was sold. He nominated and appointed his sons James Haidan and Myles Haidan and his son-in-law Simon Litzenberg his executors.1
Death*15 December 1815He died on 15 December 1815 in Washington County.18

Hannah Halbeck1

Research Notes*While we feel fairly confident that these CLARKE people are related, we are not at all certain we have identified their relationships correctly. If anyone has answers for us, we would really love to know. In the meantime, here is what we know and what, additionally, we guess: We know that Hannah (Halbeck) Clarke was the mother of Phoebe (Clarke) Heaton. We suspect that Hannah was married to Robert Clarke and that he was Phoebe's father. We further suspect that the older John Clarke may have been Robert's brother or father, and that the younger John Clarke and James Clarke were sons of either Robert or John.2,3,4,5,6
Marriage*She married Robert Clarke.1
(Wife) Deathbefore 1810Hannah became a widow when Robert Clarke died before 1810.4
Census 1810*1810Hannah Clarke appeared as the head of household on the 1810 census in East Bethlehem, Washington County, Pennsylvania, probably because her husband Robert had died. Her household consisted of 5 people, 1 free white female aged 45 and over, 1 free white female aged 16 thru 25, 2 free white females aged 10 thru 15, and 1 free white female under the age of 10.4
