(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 Washington County, Pennsylvania, and lived with his son Isaac and his family.10
Residence*Jabesh and his brother Isaac Heaton settled their families in Greene County along Ten Mile Creek, between Clarksville and Jefferson. Their brother John Heaton was identified in Leckey's The Tenmile Country as the ancestor of the Ruff's Creek Heatons.12
Will*24 October 1793Jabesh made his will dated 24 October 1793 in that part of Washington County that would become Greene County in 1796. He wrote of lands owned by him but, as of 1935, no record of possession in his name had been found. The will also mentioned a legacy he would be receiving from his brother James Heaton's estate.12

Occupation*James operated a Saw Mill in Rutland, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).4,2
Relocation*1743James acquired land to the west around Swanzey, Province of New Hampshire, New Hampshire, and tried to settle there. The winters were too severe, however, and constant problems with the Indians caused his early attempts to inhabit the area to fail. It is believed that James was successful in spending an entire winter there for the first time around 1743. James pioneering exploits have been well documented in most Southern Vermont and Southern New Hampshire history books.4
(3rd Son-in-Law) Probate Agreement11 February 1741/42James Heaton, representing himself, his wife Eliony (Hawes) Heaton, his brother Samuel Heaton and Samuel's wife Sarah (Hawes) Heaton, participated in the discussion on 11 February 1741/42 to prepare and finalize an agreement between the heirs and assigns of John Hawes, late of Dedham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), yeoman, deceased. The probate document identified each of the parties to the agreement, and their relationships to the deceased, as:

James Heaton of Rutland in the County of Worcester, yeoman, on behalf of himself and on behalf of his wife Eliony (Hawes) Heaton, one of the children and co-heirs of the estate of the deceased John Hawes.

James Heaton, again, on behalf of his brother Samuel Heaton of Hebron, in the County of Windham in the Colony of Connecticut, yeoman, and his wife Sarah (Hawes) Heaton, one of the children and co-heirs of the estate of John Hawes. James identified Samuel Heaton further by adding "alias Samuel Heaton, his brother, of Black River in the Jerseys in America, yeoman, and Sarah his wife, one of the children and co-heirs of the estate of John Hawes deceased."

Joseph Pratt of Dedham, yeoman, on behalf of himself and his wife Lydia (Hawes) Pratt, one of the children and co-heirs of the deceased John Hawes.

Ebenezer Ellis of Dedham, a wheelwright, on his own behalf and also on behalf of Samuel Everett. Samuel Everett was an heir of the deceased John Hawes as the son and only child of Mary (Hawes) Everett, late of Dedham, deceased, who had been the eldest daughter of the deceased John Hawes. Samuel Everett had assigned his share to Ebenezer Ellis

Hannah Hawes of Dedham, spinster, one of the children and co-heirs of the deceased John Hawes, on her own behalf.

Elizabeth Hawes of Dedham, spinster, one of the children and co-heirs of the deceased John Hawes, on her own behalf.

Grandson John Hawes on behalf of himself and his brothers and sisters. They were all identified as the children of John Hawes of Dedham, deceased, who had been a son of the deceased John Hawes. The other grandchildren, his brothers and sisters, were not named.

Daughter-in-Law Elizabeth (Warren) Hawes, widow of Samuel Hawes, late of Dedham, husbandman, deceased, on behalf of herself and her children. Her husband, the children's father, had been a son of the deceased John Hawes.

The agreement was signed by James Heaton, Joseph Pratt, Ebenezer Ellis, Hannah Hawes, Elizabeth Hawes, John Hawes and Elizabeth (Warren) Hawes. On 10 March 1741/42 in Boston, Joseph Pratt, Ebenezer Ellis, Hannah Hawes, Elizabeth Hawes and John Hawes acknowledged the instrument to be their voluntary act, and on 31 July 1742 in Boston, James Heaton and Elizabeth (Warren) Hawes made their acknowledgements.12
(3rd Son-in-Law) Estate and Land11 February 1742Under the 11 February 1742 agreement, James Heaton and his wife Eliony (Hawes) Heaton received 3/4 of an acre and 14 rods of land bounded southwesterly on the land set off to pay the deceased's debts, and southeasterly on the land set off to Ebenezer Ellis, and on the brook northwesterly, and on the dam and Hawes Hill on all other parts with allowances for a convenient cart passage through it where it had been previously given and granted to Samuel Hawes, deceased; and also £23 10s in moveables to complete their full share in the estate. Additionally, they, and each of the other heirs, received a one-seventh part of 14 acres on Hawes Hill.

The agreement then outlined how each of the seven parts of the 14 acres on Hawes Hill was to be divided. Joseph and Lydia (Hawes) Pratt had the first lot, adjoining his meadow; James and Eliony (Hawes) Heaton received the second lot; Samuel and Sarah (Hawes) Heaton received the third lot; Hannah Hawes, the fourth and Elizabeth Hawes, the fifth; grandson John Hawes, the sixth lot; and Ebenezer Ellis, the seventh lot adjoining Old Field. The lots were to be southeasterly and northwesterly and to be of unequal breadth at the southeasterly end, and also have convenient cart paths leading from the brook, to and over each of the lots.12

Birth*2 February 1771James Heaton was born on 2 February 1771 in Frederick County, Virginia.4,3,2,5
(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
Marriage*1793He married Margaret Williams, daughter of Enoch Williams and Hannah Grey, in 1793 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.7
(Brother) Relationship Note
Relationship NoteJames's brother Isaac married Margaret's sister Hannah.8
(Brother) Relocation1802James, with his brothers Isaac and Daniel, moved with their families just 1802 to Ohio to start an iron works in the Mahoning Valley. Each of the brothers set up his own furnace.8,9
Occupation*between 1804 and 1806The manufacture of iron ore in the Mahoning Valley was first commenced by brothers James and Dan Eaton between 1804 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.10
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.11
