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.
