The more we research this confusing issue, the more we believe there were two Williams, one William the son of each father. This William, we believe, was the son of Daniel Heaton, and the other William the son of John Heaton.5,6,7,8

Marriage*13 January 1839He married first Mary Hedge, daughter of Jacob Hedge, on 13 January 1839 in Greene County, Pennsylvania.5
(Grandson) Relationship Note Reported by the Heaton source to have been first cousins, appearing unlikely to this researcher given the almost 80 year difference in their ages. The Douglas County source reported that William Heaton's "grandfather, John Rose, and President McKinley's grandmother were cousins." If a cousin connection existed between the two, it may be discovered with additional research. McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, from 1897 to his assassination in 1901, and also the last Civil War Veteran to be elected to the presidency.1,6,7
Land Transfer*1850In, they purchased a 450 acre farm in Douglas County, Illinois.5
Land Records* Twenty years later William acquired 1000 acres in Madison County, Iowa, and by the late 1870s he was the largest land dealer in that region of Iowa.5
OccupationFor several years William kept a land office at Des Moines, Iowa, and paid $12,000 out of his own pocket toward the removal of the state capital from Iowa City to Des Moines. He founded and owned the Adair County Bank at Greenfield, Iowa, which was later owned and managed by his son Daniel.6
(Husband) Death29 October 1886William became a widower when Mary (Hedge) Heaton died on 29 October 1886.5,8

William Heaton1

d. 1815
Relationship5th great-grandson of John Heaton
ChartsDescendants of John Heaton of Lincolnshire, including the Immigrant Nathaniel
Father*John Heaton1 b. 14 Feb 1718/19
Birth*This William Heaton, we believe, was the William Heaton whose father was John Heaton of Morris County, New Jersey, Loudoun County, Virginia and Ruff's Creek, Greene County, Pennsylvania. William was probably born in Morris County, New Jersey. The other William was younger, and the son of Daniel Heaton who was this William's cousin.1
(Son) Relocation1760William moved with his father about 1760 to Loudoun County, Virginia.1,2
Relationship Note*If there were two William Heatons, as we suspect, being confused as the same person in earlier research, William Heaton, the son of John, and William Heaton, the son of Daniel were 1st cousins 1 time removed.3
(Son) Taxation1777John Heaton was taxed in 1777 at Loudoun County, Virginia.4
MarriageHe married Abigail ______.5
(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.

William's household consisted of three people, 1 free white male aged 16 and over, 1 free white male under 16, and 1 free white female.6,7,8,9,10,11
Land Records1793William purchased land in 1793 in that part of Washington County, Pennsylvania, that would become Greene County. He had one-third section with a house which measured 25' by 34' with two glass windows, a significant building in that period in history.5
Residence*Howard Leckey in is Tenmile Country identified the William Heaton who settled near Grimes School House, Ruff's Creek, Greene County, Pennsylvania, as the same William Heaton who was taxed in Loudoun County, Virginia.1
Land Records*1812 In 1812, William became the owner of the tract of land at Grimes School House, Ruff's Creek, patented to Henry Ross under the name "Phillips". This land was in the vicinity of Ross's Fort, and it is possible that some began calling the area Heaton's Fort after William Heaton's purchase. If that was the case, later historians might have believed there was an actual Heaton's Fort as referenced in the "Waychoff Papers". It was also reported by Dean Heaton in his Heaton Families II that George Washington's Papers "clearly state that George Washington stayed at Fort Heaton in Washington County, Pennsylvania while surveying at the direction of Congress prior to the Revolution. Dean Heaton did not indicate where the fort might have been or who resided there.1,12
War of 1812*8 January 1815According to family tradition, William Heaton fought under General Andrew Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans on 8 January 1815. No proof was offered for the statement, and this researcher has not yet found any record of his service.

The Battle of New Orleans was the final major battle of the War of 1812. American forces under General Andrew Jackson defeated an invading British army intent on seizing New Orleans and America's vast western lands. The Treaty of Ghent had been signed on 24 December 1814, but news of the peace would not reach New Orleans until February.5,13,14
Death*1815He died about 1815 in Greene County, Pennsylvania.5
Will*William left a will in Greene County, Pennsylvania, naming his children.5
