Father*Samuel Heaton1,4,3 b. 28 Jan 1681/82, d. c 1756
Mother*Sarah Hawes1,4,3 b. 1686, d. c 1769
Birth*13 March 1714/15He was born on 13 March 1714/15 as Jabez "Heeten" in Wrentham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).4,5,1,2,6,3
(Brother) Relocationbetween 1734 and 1736 Sometime between 1734 and 1736, the three eldest Heaton brothers, Samuel, Jabesh and Daniel, left Connecticut and moved to an area on the Black River near Mount Olive, Morris County, New Jersey, with plans to establish an iron works. How long they operated, or how successfully, is not known, however the mountain range there was rich in iron for many years. It is believed by many descendants of this Heaton family that the boys' father, Samuel Heaton, journeyed with them from Connecticut, and assisted them in setting up their business in New Jersey. If the elder Samuel was with them initially, he also returned, before the spring of 1736, to his wife and younger children in Connecticut. His sons, though, remained in New Jersey, operating their business until they eventually ran out of trees for charcoal.7,8,3,2
(Son) DesertionNovember 1743Jabesh was age 28 and living in New Jersey when his father was deserted by his mother in November 1743. His father filed for divorce four years later in Connecticut on 14 September 1747. According to the divorce documents, Sarah (Hawes) Heaton left with a load of goods on her horse with plans never to return to Connecticut, or to her husband, and headed for the Black River area of New Jersey where the three oldest of her sons were already living. It is not known if she ever reached New Jersey.9,6
Marriage*He married Abigail Kent, daughter of Thomas Kent, in Morris County, New Jersey.4,10
Occupation*Jabez built and operated the first grist mill in what was then Morris County, New Jersey. That old mill, still operating in 1881, had stood at that time in the same place for nearly 100 years. County boundaries changed when Morris County was divided in 1753, and the mill was then in Springdale, Sussex County, New Jersey. Jabez remained the miller there for many years and owned the property until it was sold by his estate in 1799.10,11
Relocation*1790Jabesh moved in 1790 to Morgan, Greene County, Pennsylvania, and lived with his son Isaac and his family.10
Death*23 November 1798He died on 23 November 1798 in Greene County, Pennsylvania, at age 83.12,13,10

(Son) Relocation1785In the summer of 1772, James was living with his parents and siblings near Watkins Ferry in Berkeley County, Virginia. They left Virginia in 1785, and moved west to Pennsylvania where two of the Heaton brothers, John and Henry, had already settled, establishing their new home in that part of Washington County, Pennsylvania, which would become Greene County in 1796.6

(Brother) Relationship Note
Relationship NoteJames's brother Isaac married Margaret's sister Hannah.8
(Brother) Relocationbefore 1803James, with his brothers Isaac and Daniel, moved with their families just before 1803 to Ohio to start an iron works in the Mahoning Valley. Each of the brothers set up his own furnace.8
Occupation*between 1805 and 1806The manufacture of iron ore in the Mahoning Valley was first commenced by brothers James and Daniel Heaton between 1805 and 1806. They built a charcoal furnace near the mouth of the Yellow Creek, near the Mahoning River, about five miles southeast of Youngstown, Ohio. Connected with, and belonging to, the furnace proper were about one hundred acres of well-timbered land, which supplied the charcoal and much of the ore for the works. Their charcoal furnace soon went into active operation. After the furnace had been in operation for a few years, James transferred his interest in the property to his brother Daniel, and went up to what would later become Niles Township in Trumbull where he built another furnace. Daniel continued at the old works and manufactured considerable iron, much of it consisting of stoves, large kettles and other castings.9
Occupation*1809 In 1809, James built a small refining forge on Mosquito Creek for the manufacture of bar iron, with charcoal , from the pig iron made at the Yellow Creek furnace. Here he produced the first hammered bars in the state. In 1820 he rebuilt this forge which continued in operation for many years. The place that officially became Niles Township in 1834, had originally consisted of only a few huts and shanties in the vicinity of the furnace. As it began to grow into a village, its first name was Heaton's Furnace. The village was laid out in 1834 by James Heaton and his son Warren, and the name of Niles was given to the village by James Heaton in honor of his favorite journalist.10

His will showed John Heaton to be a prosperous yeoman, who conducted considerable husbandry with bees, sheep, cattle, horses, and oxen. The last year of his life he had hoped to harvest beans, peas, and wheat. He rented land in Wragny and owned a cottage in Normanby-le-Wold, and his bequests of gold to James, Thomas, Edward, and Beatrix indicated an unusual degree of affluence.

Birth*14 February 1718/19John Heaton was born on 14 February 1718/19 in Hebron, Hartford County, Connecticut.2,4,1,5,6
(Son) DesertionNovember 1743John was age 24 when his father was deserted by his mother in November 1743. His father filed for divorce four years later in Connecticut on 14 September 1747. According to the divorce documents, Sarah (Hawes) Heaton left with a load of goods on her horse with plans never to return to Connecticut, or to her husband, and headed for the Black River area of New Jersey where the three oldest of her sons were already living. It is not known if she ever reached New Jersey.7,8
(Son) Relocation1744John moved from Connecticut to Morris County, New Jersey, with his family, although the timing is uncertain. He may have been there with his older brothers as early as between 1734 and 1736, or moved later with his father and the youngest of his siblings around 1744. His two oldest sisters had married and remained in Connecticut.3,9,10
Relationship Note*Although many stories have been communicated about John Heaton within our Heaton family, and some have been published, expanded upon, and republished on the internet, very little actual evidence has been found to provide a view of "our" John Heaton's life. He has often been confused by researchers with another John Heaton, the John Heaton of Loudoun County, Virginia. As we began to learn more about that other John Heaton, we realized how easy it was to become confused by the two different families of Heaton.

Our John Heaton was a great grandson of Nathaniel Heaton of Lincolnshire, England, who immigrated to Boston in 1634. The other John Heaton, of Loudoun County, was a great grandson of Robert Heaton of Yorkshire, England, who immigrated to Pennsylvania in 1682, settling in Bucks County. In England, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire are neighboring counties, and the home towns of the two Heaton immigrants in the mid 1600s were only about 100 miles apart. It is entirely possible, if not probable, that these two Heaton immigrants were related, although their link has not yet been identified. The John Heaton of Loudoun County was born on 24 June 1724 in Crosswicks, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He was six years younger than our John, and it was the John of Loudoun County who married Abigail Paxon in Bucks County and moved to Loudoun County in 1768, where he died in 1788. The Loudoun County John, and his wife Abigail (Paxon) Heaton, had eight children, William, Benjamin John, James, Thomas, Jane, Mary and Samuel. The life of our John, on the other hand, is unclear.11,12,13
Biographical Info*Although many stories and been communicated within the Heaton family, and some have been published, expanded upon, and republished on the internet, very little actual evidence has been found to provide a view of John's life. If he married, his wife is not known. The children noted as his children are uncertain, and the date and place of his death are not known. He may have moved around a lot and had many irons in the fire, as he has been reported to have explored western Pennsylvania while it was still owned by the Indians, to have found iron deposits along the Tagarts River in 1767, which was later called Iron Point, and to have been an important shareholder in the McCullogh Iron Smelter and War Supply Company in 1779.11
Marriage*If John married, the name of his wife is not known, and neither is the date nor place of their marriage.14,15

Birth*16 December 1760John Heaton was born on 16 December 1760 in Frederick County, Virginia.4,2,5,6
Revolutionary War*11 September 1777At an early age John entered the military service of Virginia and became a talented soldier. It is believed by some in the Heaton family that he served in the Revolutionary War with George Washington at the Battle of Brandywine Creek near Chadds Ford Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, which later became Delaware County, Pennsylvania, on 11 September 1777 and that he may also have had a son out of wedlock, born on that same date, and named "Washington."7,6
Revolutionary War1780Heaton Families II reported he was commissioned a Captain in 1780 by Colonel Daniel Morgan to confer with the Shawnee Indians and that John resigned his commission and returned to Virginia. There is a tradition in the Heaton family, noted in Tenmile Country, that John and his brother Henry Heaton disagreed with the higher officers under whom they served and removed to Western Pennsylvania to escape punishment.8,6
Residence*The brothers John and Henry Heaton established their residence in Washington County, Pennsylvania, in the vicinity of what would become Jefferson, in Greene County. Their parents and some of their siblings would follow them to the area in 1785.6
Marriage*3 March 1780He married, as her second husband, Sarah (Morgan) Roberts, daughter of ______ Morgan, on 3 March 1780 in Pennsylvania. Heaton Families II believed Sarah to be a niece of Colonel Daniel Morgan. Her daughter, Harriett Roberts, was raised in the household of John Heaton.2,1,9,10
Revolutionary War1782While still a very young man, in 1782, John served as a Major in the Frontier Rangers of Washington County, Pennsylvania. The Indian troubles that followed the Revolution made the maintenance of troops necessary for several years after the war, and John Heaton attained the rank of Inspector of Militia.11,6
Occupation As soon as John arrived in the western country, he proceeded to obtain land, by grant and by purchase, until he became one of the largest land owners in what is now Greene County, Pennsylvania. He also purchased land in the state of Louisiana. Upon obtaining a patent for land in Greene County, he laid out a town which became a part of Jefferson. He built a large cabin, a great house for that time, by 1790, and had extensive business interests in the area. He built a large flour mill and ran a whiskey distilling operation. He was able to send his flour and whiskey products down the river to Louisville and New Orleans in his own keel boats, and donated 3 tons of grain per year to the needy. By 1792 he had 12 slaves, and by 1812 had freed them all.6,12,13
Death*17 July 1820He died on 17 July 1820 in Jefferson, Greene County, Pennsylvania, at age 5914,6
Burial* and was buried in the old Presbyterian Cemetery, Jefferson. His grave marker read:
Col. John Heaton

Occupation*John was a husbandman in Lincolnshire.1
Will*17 June 1552John prepared his will on 17 June 1552 at Fotherby, Lincolnshire. At that time, Fotherby was in the grip of the black death, which decimated the population. John was seeing the plague all around him and, fearing the worst, had decided to put his affairs in order. By late July he and his wife Alice had fallen ill, and their son Oliver had died.2
Codicil*25 July 1552He made a codicil to his will on 25 July 15521
Death*1552 and died of the plague shortly after that date.3
Estate*6 October 1552His will was not proved at the Consistory Court of Lincoln, Lincolnshire, until 6 October 1552, some months after his death, probably due to the effects of the plague on the community at large. His will showed John Heaton to be a prosperous yeoman, who conducted considerable husbandry with bees, sheep, cattle, horses, and oxen. The last year of his life he had hoped to harvest beans, peas, and wheat. He rented land in Wragny and owned a cottage in Normanby-le-Wold. His bequests of gold to James, Thomas, Edward, and Beatrix indicated an unusual degree of affluence. For additional information regarding his specific bequests, excerpts of his will are included in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register source.4
