(Relationship-Possible) Relationship NoteResearchers have often confused the life of John Heaton of Loudoun County, Virginia, with another, possibly even unrelated, John Heaton. Although many stories have been communicated within the other 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 that other John Heaton's life. Those of us from the other Heaton family, in our desire to resolve the discrepancies in the reports of the life of our elusive John, tried to compare the life and timelines of these two John Heatons. As we began to learn more about the John Heaton of Loudoun County, Virginia, we realized how easy it was to become confused by the two different families of Heaton.

Loudoun County John Heaton was a great grandson of Robert Heaton of Yorkshire, England, who immigrated to Pennsylvania in 1682, settling in Bucks County. The other John Heaton was a great grandson of Nathaniel Heaton of Lincolnshire, England, who immigrated to Boston, Massachusetts in 1634. In England, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire 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 other John Heaton was born on 14 February 1719 in Hebron, Connecticut. He was six years older than John Heaton of Loudoun County, and did not marry Abigail Paxon, spelled "Paxton" in some publications. He moved around a lot, and lived primarily in Morris County, New Jersey and probably in Greene County, Pennsylvania.3,4,1
Marriage*He married Abigail Paxon, daughter of James Paxon and Mary ______, probably in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.5
Relocation*1768Abigail and John Heaton moved to Loudoun County, Virginia, with at least some of their children in 1768.1
Employment*25 June 1772 On 25 June 1772, brothers John and Moses Heaton were allotted to work on a road project in Loudoun County, Virginia, with their brother-in-law, William Laycock, as the surveyor. John Heaton's three oldest sons, William, Benjamin and John, were also allotted to work on the same project. Then, on 26 October 1772, upon a petition of sundry residents, John Heaton, Moses Heaton, Richard Williams and Joseph Bonham, or any three of them, being first duly sworn, were ordered to view the way for a road to be opened from the Valentine Quarter on the Potowmack River to Farling Ball's mill and store and report to the court whether it may be convenient to the public to open and clear the way. John Heaton, Moses Heaton and Joseph Bonham made their report to the court on 27 November 1772, stating they had found that the most convenient way was to go with or near the Old Road as far as Leonard May's fence, and from there take a direct course by Moses Heaton's to the mill and store. The road was ordered to be opened and to be deemed as a public road. Moses Heaton was appointed surveyor of the project, and was ordered to have the road cleared and to keep it in repair according to the law.6,7,8
Employment*10 April 1775John Heaton, William Rasley, John Dorran and Nicholas Souder, or any of the three of them, were ordered by the court on 10 April 1775 to view the way for a road to be opened from Mercer Brown's Mill into the road leading to Pain's Ferry in Loudoun County, Virginia. Then, being first duly sworn for that purpose, were to make a report to the court of the conveniences and inconveniences that might be experienced with the project. Their report was made to the court on 15 August 1775 for clearing a road from Mercer Brown's Mill to John Heaton's, and from there to Anthony Souder's and part of Jacob Fry's, from there to Conrad Hickman's, and then to the Dutch Mill. The project was approved and Conrad Hickman was appointed surveyor, with Josias Clapham appointed to allot the hands to work on the project.9,10
Taxation*1777John Heaton and his sons William Heaton, Benjamin Heaton and John Heaton Jr. were taxed in 1777 in Loudoun County, Virginia.11
Will*He left no will.12,13
Death*1788He died in Virginia, "the latter end of the year 1788, aged about 64 years and 6 months."2
