The group would have included the Heaton boys, John and Valentine, their sisters, Betsey, Rebecca and Barbara, and half-sister, Mary Laughlin. The party traveled by flat boat down the Ohio from Wheeling, Virginia (now West Virginia) to Shawneetown, Illinois. From there, their stock was driven across the country via the New Design Settlement, and they traveled from Shawneetown by keel boat to St. Louis, and then along the Six Mile route to their chosen home called originally, Six Mile Prairie, and later, Nameoki.10,11

On 13 February 1846 Rebecca Gillham, daughter of the deceased, provided a written statement to the probate court stating that she was one of the several heirs of Barbara Laughlin and that, to her knowledge, the several heirs of said deceased received of the administrators of her estate the sum of $105.50 each, by themselves or through their guardians.14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21
(Wife) Death7 March 1845She became a widow when Isaac Gillham Jr. died on or about 7 March 1845 at about age 62.22
(Widow) Probate13 March 1845Rebecca Gillham, widow of the deceased, and Calvin Kinder were appointed administrators for the estate of Isaac Gillham Jr. on 13 March 1845 in Madison County, Illinois. At the time of his death, Isaac had been administrating the estate of John Heaton, and Rebecca Gillham and Calvin Kinder took over as administrators to complete the probate of John Heaton's estate also.23

(Participant) Family Photo19 January 1903 On 19 Jan 1903 several photos of the extended Heaton family were taken at a family gathering, probably at William and Lucy Heaton's home in Des Moines, Iowa. Multiple shots of primarily the same individuals in different groupings are spread across the country among the Heaton descendants.5
Marriage*6 May 1908He married Hazel Conger, daughter of Crayton Hall Conger and Louisa Agnes Shove, on 6 May 1908.3,1,2
Census US 1910*15 April 1910Hazel and Roy Henry Heaton appeared on the 1910 census taken on 15 April 1910 in Dalhart, Dallam County, Texas. Roy was 34 years of age and worked "on his own account" as an engineer in an auto shop, and Hazel was 32 years of age. They lived in a house they rented, had been married for two years and lived with their daughter, Mary Lou, who was 4 months old. Also residing with the family was Hazel's mother, Louisa A. Conger, age 68, who worked as a librarian in a library.6
Relocation*1917Roy and Hazel moved with their daughter in 1917 to homestead in Powder River County, Montana.7
OccupationRoy Heaton was not very well and needed an outdoor life. He was a mechanical engineer and, according to his daughter, a genius with machinery. His skill took him all over Powder River County as well as into neighboring Custer and Rosebud counties. He was called on to work with automobiles and other engines, which in those days were giving owners more accustomed to horses and cattle, trouble they could not fix themselves.7
Residence*1919In the summer of 1919, a fire destroyed the Heaton's house on their homestead ranch in Powder River County and their 10-year-old daughter, Mary Lou, was sent to live for a few months with her aunt and uncle, A. D. and Elizabeth (Conger) Heaton, in Dickinson, North Dakota.7

Mother*Elizabeth Wight1 b. 2 Nov 1606
Baptism*8 May 1631Samuel Heaton was baptized on 8 May 1631 in Alford, Lincolnshire, England.2,1
(Son) Immigration18 September 1634Samuel immigrated to Boston, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), with his parents and siblings in 1634. The family sailed aboard the ship Griffin, leaving England on 01 August 1634 and arriving in Boston on 18 September 1634 with about one hundred passengers and livestock.3,4,1
Land Records*25 August 1649A "Samuel Eaton" witnessed a release by Thomas Pell on 25 August 1649 in Boston. Given the fact that Samuel's first stepfather was Joseph Pell, and that there were no other Eaton / Heaton families in Boston at the time, it is possible that the witness was Nathaniel Heaton's eldest son. If so, he would have been alive in Aug 1649. He was not found to appear in the records again, however.5
Death*before 1660Samuel probably died in Boston before 1660 when his father's estate was probated and his brother Jabez was treated as the eldest son. In 1660, he would have been only 29 years of age.5,6
