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 guardian.5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12
