b. 16 August 1711, d. 9 December 1788
Father*Chilton Latham3 b. c 1671, d. 1751
Mother*Susanna Kingman3
Birth*16 August 1711Robert Latham was born on 16 August 1711 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3,4
Marriage*12 June 1751He married first Mary Johnson, daughter of David Johnson and Rebeckah Washburn, on 12 June 1751 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3,5
(Husband) Death20 April 1752Robert became a widower when Mary (Latham) Latham died on 20 April 1752. They had been married less than a year.3,6
Marriage Intention31 March 1753An intention of marriage for Robert Latham and Bethia (Hayward) Harris was recorded on 31 March 1753 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).7
Marriage*17 April 1753He married second widow Bethia (Hayward) Harris, daughter of Deacon Thomas Hayward and Bethia Brett, on 17 April 1753 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). The vital records of Bridgewater noted the date of their intention as 31 Mar 1753 and the date of their marriage as 17 Apr 1752. Since Robert's first wife died on Apr 20 1752, this researcher thinks Robert and Bethia actually married on 17 Apr 1753 and that the marriage was dated or transcribed incorrectly in the Bridgewater records.2,7,3
(Husband) Death29 August 1778Robert became a widower for the second time when Bethia Latham died on 29 August 1778.3,8
Marriage*18 November 1778He married third, as her first husband, Jerusha Hooper, daughter of Thomas Hooper and Sarah Packard, on 18 November 1778 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts (Continental Congress).1,9,3

Alexander Laughlin1

d. 4 October 1825
Marriage*1812He married, as her second husband, Barbara (Kinder) Heaton, daughter of Valentine Kinder and Elizabeth ______, about 1812, probably in Washington County, Pennsylvania.1
Relocation1817Alexander and Barbara (Kinder) Heaton Laughlin were almost certainly members of the large company of families led by Barbara's father, Valentine Kinder, from Washington County, Pennsylvania to Madison County, Illinois, in 1817. The group would also have included Barbara's Heaton sons, John Heaton and Valentine Heaton, daughters, Betsey Heaton, Rebecca Heaton and Barbara Heaton and the newest member of the family, 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.2,3
Census US 1820*7 August 1820Alexander Laughlin appeared on the 1820 census taken on 7 August 1820 in Greenfield, Madison County, Illinois. His household was enumerated with 2 white males under the age of 10, with son James, who was 3 in 1820, being one of them and the other possibly daughter Mary, who was 6 in 1820, enumerated as a male in error, 1 white male between the ages of 26 and 44 that we believe was Alexander, and 1 white female between the ages of 26 and 44 that we believe was Barbara. The one person engaged in agriculture would have been Alexander.4

James Laughlin1

b. 1817
Father*Alexander Laughlin1 d. 4 Oct 1825
Mother*Barbara Kinder1 b. 1 Jul 1781, d. 9 Dec 1831
Birth*1817James Laughlin was born about 1817 in Madison County, Illinois.1,2
(Son) Census US 18207 August 1820He was likely enumerated on the 7 August 1820 in the household of his father Alexander Laughlin in Greenfield, Madison County, Illinois. The Laughlin household was enumerated with 2 white males under the age of 10, with son James, who was 3 in 1820, being one of them, and the other possibly daughter Mary, who was 6 in 1820, enumerated as a male in error, 1 white male between the ages of 26 and 44 that we believe was his father Alexander, and 1 white female between the ages of 26 and 44 that we believe was his mother Barbara. The one person engaged in agriculture would have been Alexander.3
(Son) Census US 18301 June 1830James, who was 13, was likely enumerated in the household of his widowed mother, Barbary Laughlin, in Madison County, Illinois, on the 1830 census taken as of 1 June 1830. The household consisted of 1 male age 10 thru 14, 2 males ages 20 thru 29, 1 female age 5 thru 9, 1 female age 15 thru 19 and 1 female 40 thru 49. We believe that James's half-brothers, John and Valentine Heaton, at ages 31 and 29 respectively in 1830, were the older males. All of James's Heaton half-sisters were married and enumerated in their husbands' households and his sister, Mary (Laughlin) Fielding, had married early in 1830 and was enumerated in her husband's household. His younger sister, Sarah Laughlin, being between the ages of 5 thru 9, along with a female household helper between the ages of 15 thru 19, we believe would have made up the remainder of his mother's household.4
(Son) Death9 December 1831James's mother died intestate on 9 December 1831 in Madison County at age 50.5
(Son) Guardianship4 September 1832His half-brother Valentine Heaton was appointed guardian of the persons and property of James and his sister Sarah Laughlin, minor heirs of their deceased mother, Barbara (Kinder) Heaton Laughlin on 4 September 1832 by the probate court of Madison County.6
(Heir) Estate Distribution6 April 1833James's guardian and half-brother, Valentine Heaton, received $211.00 as the full heirs' shares for both James and his sister Sarah Laughlin, minor children, on 6 April 1833 from the administrators of the estate of their mother, Barbara Laughlin, deceased. The shares of the two older sons, Valentine and his brother John Heaton, were paid by the estate administrators directly to them, the shares of the four married daughters were paid to each of their husbands, and the shares of the two minor children were paid to their half-brother, Valentine Heaton, as their guardian. 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.7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14
Marriage*28 February 1839He married first Jane E. Davidson, daughter of Ephraim Davidson and Elizabeth Simms, on 28 February 1839 in Madison County, Illinois.15
Marriage*1 January 1850He married second Mary E. Shillato on 1 January 1850 in Madison County, Illinois.16
(Father) DeathAugust 1850James's son, John Westly Laughlin, died of bowel inflammation in August 1850 at age 10.17
Census US 1850*22 October 1850Mary and James Laughlin appeared on the 1850 census in Township 3 N R 10 W, Madison County, Illinois. The census takers were required in 1850 to record the names of each person who had been residing in each household on the first of June 1850 regardless of the actual date the census was taken. For the Laughlin household, the census that year was taken on 22 October 1850, after James's son John Westly had died. The census recorded James as 33 years of age and a farmer with real estate valued at $3,000. His wife Mary was 18 years old and John W. had been 10 on 1 June. Also recorded as living in the household in 1850 was Elisha Beel who was 23 years old and a laborer.2
Estate Distribution*29 March 1851James signed a receipt on 29 March 1851 for $70 he received from Thomas Alexander Davidson, executor of the estate of Ephraim Davidson. The $70 had been bequeathed to James's son, John Westly Laughlin, by the 1850 will of Ephraim Davidson, his grandfather.18

Birth*2 December 1813Mary E. Laughlin was born on 2 December 1813 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.2,3
(Half-Sister) Relocation1817Mary and her parents were almost certainly members of the large company of families led by her grandfather, Valentine Kinder, from Washington County, Pennsylvania to Madison County, Illinois, in 1817. The group would have included her Heaton half-siblings, John and Valentine and Betsey, Rebecca and Barbara. 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.4,5
(Daughter) Census US 18207 August 1820She was likely enumerated on the 1820 census taken on 7 August 1820 in the household of her father Alexander Laughlin in Greenfield, Madison County, Illinois. The Laughlin household was enumerated with 2 white males under the age of 10, with son James, who was 3 in 1820, being one of them, and the other possibly daughter Mary, who was 6 in 1820, enumerated as a male in error, 1 white male between the ages of 26 and 44 that we believe was his father Alexander, and 1 white female between the ages of 26 and 44 that we believe was his mother Barbara. The one person engaged in agriculture would have been Alexander.6

The shares of the two older sons, John and Valentine Heaton, were paid by the estate administrators directly to them, the shares of the four married daughters were paid to each of their husbands, and the shares of the two minor children were paid to their half-brother, Valentine Heaton, as their guardian. 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.10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17
(Wife) Death27 August 1858Mary became a widow when Fielding Jefferson Lewis died on 27 August 1858 at age 55.2,8

Sarah Laughlin1

Father*Alexander Laughlin1 d. 4 Oct 1825
Mother*Barbara Kinder1 b. 1 Jul 1781, d. 9 Dec 1831
Birth*Sarah Laughlin was born in Madison County, Illinois.1
(Daughter) Census US 18301 June 1830She was likely enumerated in the household of her widowed mother, Barbary Laughlin, in Madison County, Illinois, on the 1830 census taken as of 1 June 1830. The household consisted of 1 male age 10 thru 14, 2 males ages 20 thru 29, 1 female age 5 thru 9, 1 female age 15 thru 19 and 1 female 40 thru 49. We believe that Sarah's half-brothers, John and Valentine Heaton, at ages 31 and 29 respectively in 1830, were the older males. All of Sarah's Heaton half-sisters were married and enumerated in their husbands' households and Sarah's older sister, Mary (Laughlin) Fielding, had married early in 1830 and was enumerated in her husband's household. Sarah would have been the female between the ages of 5 thru 9. her brother, James Laughlin, was 13, and we believe a female household helper between the ages of 15 thru 19 would have made up the remainder of her mother's household.2
(Daughter) Death9 December 1831Sarah's mother died intestate on 9 December 1831 in Madison County at age 50.3
(Daughter) Guardianship4 September 1832Sarah's half-brother Valentine Heaton was appointed guardian of the persons and property of Sarah and her brother James Laughlin, minor heirs of their deceased mother, Barbara (Kinder) Heaton Laughlin on 4 September 1832 by the probate court of Madison County.4
(Heir) Estate Distribution6 April 1833Sarah's guardian and half-brother, Valentine Heaton, received $211.00 as the full heirs' shares for both Sarah and her brother James Laughlin, minor children, on 6 April 1833 from the administrators of the estate of their mother, Barbara Laughlin, deceased. The shares of the two older sons, Valentine and his brother John Heaton, were paid by the estate administrators directly to them, the shares of the four married daughters were paid to each of their husbands, and the shares of the two minor children were paid to their half-brother, Valentine Heaton, as their guardian. 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.5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12

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.
