Birth*say 1531Thomas Heaton was born say 1531 in Lincolnshire, England.1
(Son) Estate6 October 1552Thomas was named in his father's will dated 17 June 1552 and proved on 6 October 1552 at Consistory Court of Lincoln, Lincolnshire. 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. For additional information regarding his specific bequests to others, excerpts of his will are included in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register source.2

Taxation*1789Thomas was taxed £116 on 300 acres of land, 3 horses and 2 cows in East Bethlehem, Washington County, Pennsylvania, in 1789.2
Marriage*He married Martha ______.3
Census 1800*1800Thomas Heaton appeared on the census taken in 1800 in Somerset, Washington County, Pennsylvania. The household consisted of 5 people, 1 free white male aged 26 thru 44, 1 free white female aged 26 thru 44, 2 free white males aged 16 thru 25 and 1 free white female aged 10 thru 15.4
Loan Agreement*30 May 1807"For value received of him", Thomas signed a promissory note on 30 May 1807 for £24,3s 9p to be paid to his brother John Heaton on 01 October 1808. Among other administration documents was a statement made by John Heaton that the note was given to him by Thomas Heaton a few days before Thomas "descended the river to New Orleans."3
Illness*June 1807It appears that in June 1807 Martha's husband Thomas traveled by river to New Orleans, Louisiana, and was planning to be away for some time. He then appears to have become ill, either there or on his way home, and may have borrowed money from his uncle Jeremiah in Maryland during that time. It also appears his wife Martha joined him for part of his way home because she was later reimbursed $4.98 by his administration for "my expenses and two horses for 6 days" from 14 April 1808. Thomas arrived home very sick, probably on 14 April 1808, and borrowed money from his brother Washington for his final expenses.3
Loan Agreement14 April 1808 On 14 April 1808, during his last sickness, Thomas Heaton received a loan of $15.50 from his brother Washington Heaton for the purpose of discharging his bills. Administration documents show that Washington's loan was needed immediately for $5 for a doctor and $10 for burial expenses.3
Death*14 April 1808He probably died on 14 April 1808 in Washington County, Pennsylvania, at about age 39.3
Administration*24 April 1808Administration was opened on 24 April 1808 for the estate of Thomas Heaton late of Somerset, Washington County, Pennsylvania. His widow Martha Heaton and Duncan Campbell were appointed Administrators and paid the sum of $2.50 to Isaac Kerr, Register, for taking bond and granting Letters of Administration.3
Administration*16 May 1808Items from the inventory of the goods and chattels of the estate of Thomas Heaton late of the township of Somerset, Washington County, that were sold on 16 May 1808 reached a total of $764.15 and a list, including purchasers, items purchased and their values, was included in the administration packet. Many individuals made purchases, including Thomas' widow Martha Heaton and two of his brothers, James Heaton and Washington Heaton.

Martha purchased 1 tea kettle for $2.63, 1 watering pot for $.67, 2 chairs for $.53, 1 old tub for $.09, a cask of vinegar for $1.06, 16 acres of wheat @ $2.02 for $32.32 and 18 acres of wheat @ $2.00 for $36.00.3
Administration18 December 1809 On 18 December 1809, John Hardgrove appeared in person before H. Wallace, a Justice of the Peace for Washington County, to present a list of monies he was owed from the estate of Thomas Heaton. He stated he was owed a total of $35 and itemized the amounts beginning with $6 for cash lent to Thomas on 25 June 1807 that, for verification, was in Thomas Heaton's book by entry in his own hand in his lifetime. He was owed $3 for two days grading and two days mowing and hauling in hay in 1807, $20 for cash lent to his widow Martha Heaton on 3 April 1808 for her expenses when she went after him on his return from the territory of Orleans, and $6 paid to Jeremiah Heaton to settle an amount Jeremiah had loaned to Martha Heaton on 13 May 1808 against the estate of her deceased husband Thomas Heaton.3
Administration29 February 1812The final accounting for the estate of Thomas Heaton, dated 29 February 1812, reported a zero balance after a total amount of $1,848.62 in credits and debits. The itemized list of those who had received disbursements included two of Thomas's brothers, John Heaton and Washington Heaton, and Robert Clarke's name was listed next after Washington's. The document submitted and registered by the court in Washington County was signed by Martha Hardgrove and Duncan Campbell, administrators, and Isaac Kerr, Register.3

Research Notes*Washington Heaton has challenged researchers for many years. Who was he?... The story his descendants learned was that Washington's father's name was John Heaton, a soldier serving in the Revolutionary War under General George Washington when his son was born on 11 September 1777 -- and that Washington Heaton earned his name because of his father's admiration for the General. In his Heaton Families II, Dean Heaton wrote that Washington was "very likely" the son of Colonel John Heaton "either by an earlier marriage or born out of wedlock." No explanation for the statement was provided, and some of Washington's descendants who have remained skeptical talked to other Heaton researchers, and together we decided to try and learn which John Heaton really was Washington Heaton's father.

We had previously researched only nine John Heatons, yet not with Washington in mind, so we began with those nine, which included the "very likely" Colonel John Heaton. We were able to eliminate all nine fairly quickly. Regarding the "very likely" John Heaton, as we learned more about how committed he was to his family, we believed that if he had been Washington's father, we would have found some evidence or record of their involvement in something together -- or at least have found them in the same location once or twice. We also believe Washington would have been included in the Heaton family Bible records kept by Colonel John's daughter Charlotte (Heaton) Black. Howard Leckey's The Tenmile Country, wrote about the Bible which did not include a son named Washington, however did mention a daughter born to Colonel John's wife by her previous marriage, and who was raised by Colonel John. We decided at that point that Colonel John was not the father we were looking for, and also decided to extend our search and research to include as many other John Heatons as we could find until we found the John Heaton that felt "right". We added 453 new people to our Heaton Project, found sixteen "new" John Heatons and researched them enough to eliminate all but four of them.

Our best candidates were John Heaton, John Heaton, John Heaton and John Heaton -- and then we knew! John Heaton must have been Washington Heaton's father -- at least until some new information proves us wrong.3,4,5
Birth*11 September 1777Washington Heaton was born on 11 September 1777 in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, which would become part of the newly formed Washington County in 1781. We note here also that on the 1900 census Washington's daughter Phoebe Packwood's enumerator reported her father's birthplace as Maryland and on Phoebe's 1903 death certificate, Phoebe's son Jesse reported his grandfather Washington Heaton's birthplace as Pennsylvania.6,7,8
Census 1790*1790One of our early tasks as we searched for Washington's father was to organize and group the several Heaton families in Washington County, Pennsylvania, using the 1790 census. The names of heads of household on the census taken in the county that year 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. In 1790, Washington Heaton was only 13 years old and lived with his parents.9,10,11,12,13,14
Census 18001800The earliest record we found for Washington Heaton was his appearance on the 1800 census in Washington County. Enumeration of Heads of Households on the census that year, for each county, was taken by location within the county, so we were able to see more specifically where the various Heaton families lived and their proximity to each other. Eight Heaton heads of household were enumerated that year in Washington County and five, including Washington, were in East Bethlehem: Washington Heaton, Henry Heaton, John Heaton Sr., John Heaton Jr. and James Heaton. The remaining three Heaton families each lived in separate places: Myles Haidan, who had been enumerated as Miles HEATON in 1790, was in West Bethlehem, John Heaton was in Morris Township, and Thomas Heaton was in Somerset. Our challenge, as we identified it, was to find out who each of these people were in the hopes of finding a connection to Washington or, even better, a father or brother. At the very least we needed one or more clues to pursue. It was wonderful when we discovered that Thomas Heaton of Somerset turned out to hold the ultimate clue we'd been looking for.

Robert Clarke, John Clarke and John Clarke, whom we suspected might turn out to be related to Washington's wife Phoebe, were also enumerated in 1800 in East Bethlehem.15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24
Census 1800*1800Washington appeared on the 1800 census in East Bethlehem, Washington County, Pennsylvania. The household consisted of three people: one male age 16 thru 25, whom we believe was Washington, one female age 16 thru 25, possibly his wife Phoebe, and one female under 10. We note that other researchers have reported that 1802 was the year of Washington's marriage to Phoebe, so this may be a first wife and child, or a learning that Washington and Phoebe married before the census was taken in 1800.15
Marriage*1802He married Phoebe Clark, daughter of Robert Clarke and Hannah Halbeck, in 1802 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.6
Loan Agreement*14 April 1808 On 14 April 1808 Washington Heaton made a loan of $15.50 to his brother Thomas Heaton during his last sickness for the purpose of discharging his bills. Administration documents show that Washington's loan was needed immediately for $5 for a doctor and $10 for burial expenses.2
(Brother) Administration16 May 1808Items from the inventory of the goods and chattels of the estate of Thomas Heaton late of the township of Somerset, Washington County, that were sold on 16 May 1808 reached a total of $764.15 and a list, including purchasers, items purchased and their values, was included in the administration packet. Many individuals made purchases, including Thomas' widow Martha Heaton and two of his brothers, James Heaton and Washington Heaton.

Washington purchased 1 pair of tongs for $1.60, 1 skillet for $.40, 1 hive of bees for $2.31, a second hive of bees for $2.25, 1 shovel for $1.05, and a case of razors for $.25.2
Administration*27 February 1809 On 27 February 1809, Washington received $15.76 as payment in full for his final loan to his brother Thomas Heaton deceased from Martha Heaton, as administrator of her late husband's estate.2
Census 18101810There were five Heaton heads of household and four Clarke heads of household listed on the census taken in Washington County, Pennsylvania, in 1810. Washington Heaton was the only Heaton enumerated in the township of Pike Run, not far from East Bethlehem, where Barbara Heaton, widow of James, John Heaton, Ebenezer Heaton, John Clarke, James Clarke and Hannah (Halbeck) Clarke, Robert Clarke's widow and Phoebe (Clarke) Heaton's mother, all lived in 1810. John Clarke was in Somerset, John Heaton was still in Morris Township, and Henry Heaton had moved to Fayette County, Pennsylvania. Of special interest to us was that Barbara Heaton, John Clarke, Hannah Clarke and James Clarke were all enumerated on the same page, the names were not listed alphabetically, and Hannah was next to and between John Clarke and James Clarke.25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34
Census 1810*1810Washington appeared on the 1810 census in Pike Run, Washington County, Pennsylvania. The household had grown to a total of 8 people in 1810 and consisted of one male and one female each age 26 thru 44, whom we believe to be Washington and Phoebe, one female age 16 thru 25, one female age 10 thru 15 and four females under 10.25
(Brother) Administration29 February 1812The final accounting for the estate of Thomas Heaton, dated 29 February 1812, reported a zero balance after a total amount of $1,848.62 in credits and debits. The itemized list of those who had received disbursements included two of Thomas's brothers, John Heaton and Washington Heaton. The document submitted and registered by the court in Washington County was signed by Martha Hardgrove and Duncan Campbell, administrators, and Isaac Kerr, Register. Washington had received $15.46 "for proven account and receipt" and Robert Clarke's name appeared next after Washington's on the disbursement list.2
Relocation*1818Phoebe and Washington moved with their family in 1818 to a farm near Borden, Clark County, Indiana.35
Census 1820*1820Washington appeared on the 1820 census as the Head of Household in Washington County, Indiana. The household consisted of 10 people: one male age 45 and over and one female age 26 thru 44, who were probably Washington and his wife Phoebe, one male age 26 thru 44, four females age 10 thru 15, 2 females under 10 and one male under 10. Two people were engaged in agriculture.36
(Husband) Death1823Washington became a widower when Phoebe (Clark) Heaton died in 1823.37
Death*1826He died in 1826.6

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.

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

Heaton Sources II reported that William always appears in biographies as the son of John Heaton but it is possible that he was the son of John's nephew Daniel Heaton. 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
