It appears to read, and was transcribed, as "Dress" in their marriage record, and the surname of the two young boys enumerated as grandsons of Matilda (Heaton) Wheatley's parents in 1880 was spelled "Deer". We have attached them here as possible sons of Matilda and Frederick, although we have no proof to support either the parents of the boys, Henry and Osie Deer, or that the Mathilda Wheatley in the marriage was actually our Matilda (Heaton) Wheatley.7,8

Relocation*between 1816 and 1817Micajah and Mary moved west to Coshocton County, Ohio, between 1816 and 1817. They camped in the woods with their three young daughters until a cabin was built.6
Occupation*13 September 1817Micajah Heaton laid out the town of West Bedford, Coshocton County, on 13 September 1817. For a long time it was known only as Heaton's Town, then its proper name came into use. It lies in the southwestern part of the township of Bedford on the northeast quarter of section 16. Micajah was from Bedford County, Pennsylvania, and settled on this quarter section about a year previous to the laying out of the village. His cabin was situated in a corner of the section, and he kept a tavern in the village for many years. There wasn't much travel through the town at that time, so the tavern's hotel side was dependent upon the sale of whiskey for the tavern's income. Micajah also received the appointment as postmaster, and thereby drew considerable business to his bar.8,9
Census US 1820*7 August 1820Micajah Heaton appeared on the 1820 census taken on 7 August 1820 in Perry, Coshocton County, Ohio, a township bordering the family's village of West Bedford. His household consisted of 7 people, 1 male aged 26 thru 44, 1 female aged 26 thru 44, 1 male under 10, 1 female aged 16 thru 25 and 4 females under 10.

Micajah was 63 years of age and a farmer with real estate valued at $7,000, and Mary was 59. Living with their parents in 1850 were Catherine, Matilda, Julia, Samuel, John and Middleton. Also living with the family in 1850 were Abraham Young, age 9 and born in Ohio, and Nathaniel Lynch, age 65 and born in Maryland, who may have been a brother of Mary's.12
Census US 1860*7 July 1860Mary and Micajah Heaton were enumerated on the 1860 census taken on 7 July 1860 in Eden, Seneca County, Ohio. Micajah was 72 years of age and a farmer with real estate valued at $1,000 and a personal estate valued at $1,600. Mary was 66 years of age. Three of the couple's children, Catherine, Matilda and Samuel lived with their parents in 1860.

Miles Heaton1

Birth*Miles Heaton was born in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.1
Relationship Note*The relationship between Miles Heaton and Myles Haidan is unclear to us at this point. They may even be the same man. Each had a wife named Margaret and each had children with similar, almost identical names. They lived in the same place and, if not the same man, may have been father and son. Obviously, more research is needed.

Heaton Sources II wrote about Myles Heaton in Chapter 18, "Robert Heaton of Bucks County", Pennsylvania in the section of the chapter reserved for families and individuals who the author believed were not directly connected to the Robert Heaton (Yorkshire) branch of Heatons, but who had lived in the eastern Pennsylvania area about the same time -- or were Quakers, as the Yorkshire Heatons were. The author stated that he had "not been able to sort out these families."

Then, in Chapter 31, "Mid Atlantic Heatons", Miles Heaton was included with a large number of additional Heatons the source identified as Heatons who had lived in Maryland, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Kentucky, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and beyond that he had not been able to place with their correct families. Pennsylvania had the longest list and included Miles Heaton.1,2,3,4,5
Name VariationIt was suggested that Miles may have been his middle name.1
Name VariationHis surname was also spelled with variations of Haidan in many records.5
Residence*Miles was thought to have spent all of his life living near his place of birth, which was probably in that part of Westmoreland County that was set off as Washington County in 1781 and then was set off from Washington County as Greene County in 1796.1
Marriage*He married Margaret ______, probably in Washington County, Pennsylvania.1,5
Revolutionary War*Miles served in the Revolutionary War.1

John Heaton's three oldest sons, William, Benjamin and John, were also allotted to work on the same project. Then, on 26 October 1772, upon a petition of sundry residents, John Heaton, Moses Heaton, Richard Williams and Joseph Bonham, or any three of them, being first duly sworn, were ordered to view the way for a road to be opened from the Valentine Quarter on the Potowmack River to Farling Ball's mill and store and report to the court whether it may be convenient to the public to open and clear the way. John Heaton, Moses Heaton and Joseph Bonham made their report to the court on 27 November 1772, stating they had found that the most convenient way was to go with or near the Old Road as far as Leonard May's fence, and from there take a direct course by Moses Heaton's to the mill and store. The road was ordered to be opened and to be deemed as a public road. Moses Heaton was appointed surveyor of the project, and was ordered to have the road cleared and to keep it in repair according to the law3,4,5
Death*1777 and died in 1777 in Loudoun County. He was about 33 years of age and died leaving a widow and two children, a son John, and a daughter.2

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.

Birth*11 June 1775Nancy Heaton was born on 11 June 1775 in Berkeley County, Virginia.2,4
(Daughter) Relocation1785When she was about 10 years of age, Nancy moved west with her parents and siblings to Pennsylvania where two of the Heaton brothers, John and Henry, had already settled, establishing their new home in that part of Washington County, Pennsylvania, which would become Greene County in 1796.3
Marriage*She married, as his first wife, her 1st cousin Rees Hill, son of Robert Hill and Priscilla Bowen.5,6,2
Relocation*1820After leaving the Pennsylvania Legislature, about 1820, Nancy's husband Rees went to Frederick County, Virginia, where, over a period of years, he attempted to collect together the estate of their grandfather, Henry Bowen, and also the estates of two of their uncles, Ensign Rees Bowen and Sergeant Henry Bowen, who had died in the Revolutionary War. It is not known to us yet whether or not his wife Nancy and any of their children went with him to Virginia, or if he travelled the distance of about 165 miles alone. Did he commute between the two locations, or did he actually reside there?7
EstateFor a time, her husband's efforts were successful as he worked on the three estates of their relatives in Frederick County, Virginia. Eventually, though, he over-extended himself and got into financial straits. Nancy died during this time, and the litigation on the estates was still in the courts when Rees died more than twenty years later.7
Death*16 June 1828She died on 16 June 1828 in Greene County, Pennsylvania, at age 53.8,9

Note: It is wonderful to have found this online posting and we are very grateful to other researchers who share their treasures. We have happily included the document's information and are hoping that, during our verification process, we will be able to confirm its validity. The online posting was a copy of a typed (typewriter) document which was not dated and is reported to be page one of a longer document. It appears to this researcher that the main author, J. W. Heaton, who stated he was born on June 19, 1832 in Henry County, Kentucky, one mile east of the village of Franklinton, wrote, possibly by hand, the information he titled "Family Genealogy" and which begins about one-third down from the top of page one -- and that someone else typed or retyped the information at a later date and added two additional paragraphs above the original author's work to include what was believed to be information about the original author's grandfather and great grandfather. We found the document online at https://www.ancestry.com/family-tree/person/tree/58145564/…. Hereinafter cited as Heaton Family Genealogy by J. W. Heaton.
