Birth*2 April 1717Daniel Heaton was born on 2 April 1717 in Wrentham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3,5,4,1,6
(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.7,8,2,4
Marriage*Daniel may have married a woman named Ruth Wadsworth as reported by a 2nd great grandson of Daniel's in his Sons of the Revolution application based upon Daniel's son David's service. Ruth may have been from Connecticut, but more likely was from New Jersey, and they probably married there. Heaton Families II stated that Daniel married Ruth Wadsworth in Connecticut in 1734, and that she was born in Framingham, Massachusetts on 14 April 1711 to John Wadsworth and Elizabeth Stanley. Well.... it turns out that John and Elizabeth Wadsworth had a daughter Ruth, born on 14 April 1711 in Farmington, Connecticut. However, their Ruth Wadsworth married Elisha Lewis on 18 April 1739 in Farmington, and died on 15 October 1776 in Farmington. Ruth's husband, Elisha Lewis was born on 23 July 1710 in Farmington to Nathaniel and Abigail (Ashley) Lewis, and died in Farmington on 13 May 1769. Both Elisha Lewis and his wife, Ruth (Wadsworth) Lewis were buried in Memento Mori Cemetery, Farmington, Connecticut.

One of the things we've learned as we've improved our genealogical problem solving skills is how tempting it is to jump to the wrong conclusions in our desire to "connect the dots". We're guessing that somewhere along the line of Daniel's descendants, someone stated his wife's name was "Ruth" or even "Ruth Wadsworth", maybe from one of the Wadsworth families of New Jersey. Over time, that "information" has been passed along in the Heaton family, with someone even selecting the Connecticut origins for Ruth we now find published in the Heaton Families II as fact and, sadly, duplicated hundreds of times on websites and other electronic genealogical trees. It's sad because we realize that once the untruth reaches the internet, it never goes away.2,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16
(Son) DesertionNovember 1743Daniel was age 26 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.17,6
Relocation*1770Daniel and his wife Ruth remained in Morris County until the mid 1760s when they joined their sons, first in northern Virginia and then finally about 1770 in that part of Westmoreland County that would, in 1781, become Washington County, and in 1796, Greene County, Pensylvania.18,19
Land Records*1788Daniel, after relocating to Pennsylvania, sold land in Morris County, New Jersey, in 1788 with his son Daniel who lived in New Jersey.20
(Head of Household) Research Notes1790The 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.

Daniel's household consisted of two people, 1 free white male aged 16 and over, and 1 free white female.21,22,23,24,25,26
