Birth*1747Jonah Heaton was born in 1747 in Morris County, New Jersey.2
Occupation*He was an excellent gunsmith and is credited by some with making the first gun in the west.2,4
Biographical Info*Our source, Heaton Families II, described Jonah as a very interesting character, and a widely traveled, true pioneer. He was in the west long before most Americans and developing wide tracts of land in western Kentucky with or before Daniel Boone. In the early 1760s, with at least two of his brothers, Jonah was blazing trails in Berkeley and Rockingham counties in Virginia.2
Biographical Info Heaton Families II reported some of the contents of a long article that appeared in the Miami Valley, Ohio newspaper in 1889 in celebration of the pioneer reunion of that year. The accuracy of the information has not been verified. From Heaton Families II:


"The article was about Jonah Heaton who was the area's first pioneer. The article states that he was born in 1735 and he was a child when his family moved to central Pennsylvania. In 1750 he was captured by the Indians while on a hunting party. The Indians took him to Prosaue Island on Lake Erie. Jonah was with the Indians when General Braddock lost the battle against the French in 1755. He was again with the Indians in 1758 at the battle of Fort McQuense. He was adopted by a chief of the Shawnee tribe and was given the name of Red Hawk. He remained with the Indians until 1764 when he returned to civilized life at Fort Pitt. After fighting in the Battle of Point Pleasant with Governor Dunmore (in) 1774, he went to Kentucky to guide for John Bowman (in) the expedition against the Indians on the little Miami River. In 1880 (sic) he served as a guide to George Rogers Clark against the Indians. He roamed over Kentucky and Ohio acting as an interpreter with the Indians. In 1786 and 7 he surveyed the southwestern portion of Ohio which was known as the Virginia Military Reservation. For his efforts he was award(ed) land there. In 1788 he is reported to have woman troubles in Louisville and therefore settled on the land he was given in Caesar's Creek where he lived in seclusion until 1802. The area was named for him and called Jonah's Run."5,6
Biographical Info Jonah does seem to have experienced what today we would think of as a truly frontier life. The following was taken from a longer article by Karen Campbell, the genealogy librarian at The Mary L. Cook Public Library in Waynesville, Ohio:

"Jonah's Run Creek is named after the earliest known white resident in the Warren Co.-Clinton Co. area, Jonah Eaton. For ten years he lived on the north bank of Jonah's Run Creek about half a mile from Caesar Creek in a living tree house; literally in its hollow trunk, which was big enough for a room. The interior was said to have been 10' X 7' and high enough for a man to stand in. At a certain point he added on a porch before the entrance. The site of his unique house is now covered by the waters of Caesars Creek Lake.

Jonah Eaton was captured by Iroquois Indians when he was fifteen while on a hunting trip in Pennsylvania. He was taken to Presque Island in Lake Erie and was adopted into the tribe. He was eventually taken by the Shawnee to central and southern Ohio. He was adopted by the Shawnee Principal Chief, Red Hawk. After the victory of General Bouquet in 1764, he was returned to the whites. Because of a murder of a friend by an Indian, Eaton happily returned to white culture and went on to fight with General Dunsmore's forces at the Battle of Pt. Pleasant in 1774 and was a scout for Colonel John Bowman in his campaign against the Indians at Old Town. He was also a scout for General George Rogers Clark in his attack against Piqua in 1780. He was an interpreter at the Treaty of Fort Stanwick and at the Treaty of Fort Finney. After the signing of the Northwest Ordinance of 1784, he was hired by Colonel Richard Anderson of Louisville, Ky. to survey the Little Miami Valley. Eaton traversed what is now Warren, Greene and Clinton counties for 14 months making crude maps of the area.

Even though he received land as compensation for his surveying, as he grew older and the population increased, he decided to go find his kin back in the east. At the age of 67 years, in 1802, he left and returned to Pennsylvania. None-the-less, an image of this formidable frontiersman carrying his famous long rifle called the "Great Goose-Gun" striding to his tree-truck home is conjured up whenever anyone drives over or past Jonah's Run Creek.7
Marriage*He married first Elizabeth ______. Her surname may have been GUM or GUN.2
Court Action*In 1776, Jonah had claimed title to 1,000 acres of land in what would become Louisville, Kentucky. On 22 April 1780 a Court held by the Commissioners of the Kentucky District for Adjusting Titles of unpatented lands issued a certificate to Jonah for his 1,000 acres. Then, during Jonah's several years' absence from the area, the name of the place changed and was no longer known as Heaton's Creek, and William Oldham, in 1788, claimed Jonah's 1,000 acres as his own. Jonah sued Oldham in court to recover his parcel of land, with his brother David Heaton from Berkeley County, Virginia acting as his attorney. We've not yet learned the resolution of the case.2,8
(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.

  1. [S1399] Heaton. A well researched and partially documented work on the earliest Heaton immigrants to Pennsylvania, from Yorkshire, England, in 1682. Some of the information from the website is presented here in acknowledgement that not all of the early Heatons to America were "our" Heatons, and specifically to remind us of the reasons for the confusion expressed by our Heaton family researchers over the years as they tried to distinguish between the Lincolnshire John Heaton and the Yorkshire John Heaton, the two John Heatons of Loudon County, Virginia.
