Marriage*2 November 1727She married John Porter on 2 November 1727 in Hebron, Windham County, Connecticut.7,2,3
Research Notes*9 May 1735This Sarah Heaton was not the bride in the marriage between Matthew Williams and a Sarah Heaton in Wrentham on 9 May 1735. Clearly explained research strategies and analysis in the excellent "Sarah Heaton, wife of John Porter" source proves that our Sarah Heaton was married only once, to John Porter.6,8,9,10
(Daughter) DesertionNovember 1743Sarah was age 36 and long married when her father was deserted by her mother in November 1743. He 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.11,6
(Eldest Daughter) Relocation1744Sarah's father moved permanently, with his additional unmarried children, Hannah, John, James and Isaac, to Morris County, New Jersey, possibly as early as 1744. In his divorce documents dated 14 September 1747, he gave his address as Lebanon, Connecticut, possibly visiting there at the home of his daughter Sarah and her husband John Porter.2,12,13

Birth*circa 1540Thomas Heaton was born in the early 1540's, probably in the region around Great Coates, Lincolnshire.1
Marriage*10 November 1562He married, as her first husband, Alissa Lusbye on 10 November 1562 at Great Coates, Lincolnshire.1
Religion*1592Thomas Heaton and John Heaton were both senior Churchmen in the parish at Great Coates, Lincolnshire, in 15921,4

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 Wragby 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. ]By his father's will of 1552, Thomas received a pair of oxen, five ewes, five lambs, a mare and a foal, an acre of wheat, an acre of beans, two hives of bees, 10s in gold, 6s 8d a year rent from the lease of Wragby land, his father's best coat, doublet and hat, and a great counter "which should remain in the name of Heaton as long as it will last." It was suggested by earlier researchers that this counter may have been included in the furniture bequeathed by Thomas to his eldest son, John.

Occupation*Weaver was a millwright, defined as a designer and builder of mills or mill machinery.4,12,11,13
Census 1840*1840Weaver Heaton was enumerated as Head of Household on the 1840 census taken in Millsboro, Washington County, Pennsylvania, on the same page as Isaac Sharp, his wife's father. Weaver's household contained more people than his own family, and one wonders who the others were. Weaver, himself, was likely the one male between the ages of 30 through 39 and his wife Rebecca was likely the one female between the ages of 20 through 29. Their two children, Emaline and James, would be the one male and one female under 5. That leaves one male ages 60 through 69, two males ages 20 through 29 and two females ages 15 through 19 unaccounted for.10
Census 1850*9 August 1850Weaver and Rebecca Heaton appeared on the 1850 Census taken on 9 August 1850 in Millsborough, Washington County, Pennsylvania. Weaver was 40 years old, and his occupation was millwright. There was nothing shown for the value of his real estate. Rebecca was age 34, and living with the couple were their six children. Emaline was 14, James 12, Rachel 9, Eliza 7, Henry 4 and William 2. John H. Sharp, who was age 19 and had attended school within the year, also resided with the family. Although he has not yet been identified, he is thought to have probably been a relative of Weaver's wife, Rebecca. All members of the household had been born in Pennsylvania. Enumerated in the next household was Rebecca's sister Rachel with her husband, Joel Grabill.14
RelocationSometime between the dates of the 1850 and 1860 censuses, Weaver and Rebecca Heaton moved to Greenfield, Washington County, Pennsylvania, a community which later became Coal Center.4,11,12
Census 1860*17 July 1860Weaver and Rebecca Heaton appeared on the 1860 census taken on 17 July 1860 in the borough of Greenfield, Washington County, Pennsylvania. Weaver's age was 49, he was a millwright and the value of his real estate was shown as $700 and of his personal estate as $200. They lived with their children. James was age 21 and working as a ship carpenter. Rachel was 18, Eliza 17, Henry 14, William 11, and twins George and Ella, who were 8 years of age.15
Census 1870*21 June 1870Weaver and Rebecca Heaton appeared on the 1870 census taken on 21 June 1870 in the borough of New Haven, Fayette County, Pennsylvania. Weaver was age 60, a millwright, and the estimated value of his personal estate was $400. Rebecca was age 55, and keeping house. Three of their children were still living in the household. William was 22 years of age and working in a sash factory, George was 18 years of age, had attended school within the year and was also working in a sash factory, Ella was age 18 and had not attended school within the year. Rebecca's mother, Eliza A. Sharp, who was 73 years of age with real estate valued at $500, also lived with the family.16
(Brother-in-Law) Census 187029 July 1870Their son Henry appeared on the 1870 census taken on 29 July 1870 in the household of her brother and his wife, John and Ann Sharp, in Taylor, Appanoose County, Iowa. Henry was 24 years old and working as a carpenter. Also living in the household were eight of her brother's children, ranging in age from 26 to 8 years.17,18
