Margaret ______1

Marriage*She married Myles Haidan.1
Census US 1800*Margaret was likely enumerated on the 1800 census in the household of her husband Myles Haidan in West Bethlehem, Washington County, Pennsylvania. The household consisted of 9 people, 1 free white male over the age of 45, 1 free white female over the age of 45, 3 free white males aged 16 thru 25, 2 free white females 10 thru 15, and 2 free white females under 10. Four members of the household were under 16 and two members were over 25.2
Will*2 December 1815Margaret Haidan made his will dated 2 December 1815 in Washington County, Pennsylvania. He mentioned his beloved wife Margaret, his two sons James Haidan and Myles Haidan Jr. and three daughters Ann, Elizabeth and Olivia. He left bequests also to Myles Montgomery, Daniel Montgomery and David Power alias HAIDAN. He first directed that all of his lawful debts be paid out of his personal estate except two notes, one in the hands of his son James Haidan and the other in the hands of his son Myles Haidan. He gave one-third part of his real and personal estate to his wife Margaret during her natural life, or if she decided to have the plantation sold, she was to have a child's part out of his whole estate to be at her disposal at her death. He bequeathed $50 to each of three minor boys, to be paid by his executors, without interest as they became of age. Myles and Daniel Montgomery were described as the sons of Humphrey Montgomery deceased, and David Power alias Haidan was not identified further. He gave $30 to each of his unmarried daughters, Elizabeth Haidan and Olivia Haidan and all they claimed in the house as theirs, and whatever house furniture his wife Margaret didn't need. His will directed that after deducting the legacies mentioned, namely the two notes he gave to his sons, the $50 to each of the boys and the $30 each to his two unmarried daughters, the remainder of his estate, real and personal, was to be sold and the proceeds bequeathed in equal part or shares to his son James a share, to his son Myles a share, to his daughter Ann a share, to his daughter Elizabeth a share, and to his daughter Olivia a share. He directed that all of the grain in the stock yard or now growing, and corn, was to be considered, and the winter's meat then preparing was to be for the use of the immediate family. His wife Margaret was to have the exclusive privilege of the dwelling house and fuel during her natural life or until the plantation was sold, and his son James and his son-in-law Simon Litzenberg were to have the privilege conjointly of the house and garden where they were then living, and fuel, until the place was sold. He nominated and appointed his sons James Haidan and Myles Haidan and his son-in-law Simon Litzenberg his executors.3

Martha ______

ChartsDescendants of Robert Heaton of Yorkshire, The Immigrant
Marriage*She married Thomas Heaton, son of John Heaton and Rebecca ______.1
Census US 1800*1800Martha was likely enumerated on the census taken in 1800 in the household of her husband Thomas Heaton in Somerset, Washington County, Pennsylvania. The household consisted of 5 people, 1 free white male aged 26 thru 44, 1 free white female aged 26 thru 44, 2 free white males aged 16 thru 25 and 1 free white female aged 10 thru 15.2
Illness*June 1807It appears that in June 1807 Thomas traveled by river to New Orleans, Louisiana, and was planning to be away for some time. He then appears to have become ill, either there or on his way home, and may have borrowed money from his uncle Jeremiah in Maryland during that time. It also appears his wife Martha joined him for part of his way home because she was later reimbursed $4.98 by his administration for "my expenses and two horses for 6 days" from 14 April 1808. Thomas arrived home very sick, probably on 14 April 1808, and borrowed money from his brother Washington for his final expenses.1
(Wife) Loan Agreement14 April 1808 On 14 April 1808, during his last sickness, Martha's husband Thomas Heaton received a loan of $15.50 from his brother Washington Heaton for the purpose of discharging his bills. Administration documents show that Washington's loan was needed immediately for $5 for a doctor and $10 for burial expenses.1
(Wife) Death14 April 1808Martha became a widow when Thomas Heaton died on 14 April 1808.1
Administration24 April 1808Martha and Duncan Campbell were appointed Administrators for her husband Thomas Heaton's estate on 24 April 1808. They paid the sum of $2.50 to Isaac Kerr, Register, for taking bond and granting Letters of Administration.1
Administration*16 May 1808Items from the inventory of the goods and chattels of the estate of Thomas Heaton late of the township of Somerset, Washington County, that were sold on 16 May 1808 reached a total of $764.15 and a list, including purchasers, items purchased and their values, was included in the administration packet. Many individuals made purchases, including Thomas' widow Martha Heaton and two of his brothers, James Heaton and Washington Heaton.

Martha purchased 1 tea kettle for $2.63, 1 watering pot for $.67, 2 chairs for $.53, 1 old tub for $.09, a cask of vinegar for $1.06, 16 acres of wheat @ $2.02 for $32.32 and 18 acres of wheat @ $2.00 for $36.00.1
Administration27 February 1809 On 27 February 1809,Martha, as administrator to her late husband's estate, paid $15.76 to Washington Heaton as payment in full for his final loan to his brother Thomas Heaton deceased.1
Marriage*before 20 April 1809She married second John Hardgrove before 20 April 1809 in Washington County. It is clear that Martha Heaton, widow of Thomas Heaton, married a man with the surname of Hardgrove as her name changed during the administration of Thomas's estate after 20 April 1809 to Martha Hardgrove late Heaton. It is not certain, however, if the given name of the man she married was John.1
Administration*20 April 1809 On 20 April 1809 Martha, as administrator for the estate of her late husband Thomas Heaton, paid his brother John Heaton $79.50 in full payment of her husband's earlier promissory note to him.1
(Widow) Administration18 December 1809 On 18 December 1809, John Hardgrove appeared in person before H. Wallace, a Justice of the Peace for Washington County, to present a list of monies he was owed from the estate of Thomas Heaton. He stated he was owed a total of $35 and itemized the amounts beginning with $6 for cash lent to Thomas on 25 June 1807 that, for verification, was in Thomas Heaton's book by entry in his own hand in his lifetime. He was owed $3 for two days grading and two days mowing and hauling in hay in 1807, $20 for cash lent to his widow Martha Heaton on 3 April 1808 for her expenses when she went after him on his return from the Territory of Orleans, and $6 paid to Jeremiah Heaton to settle an amount Jeremiah had loaned to Martha Heaton on 13 May 1808 against the estate of her deceased husband Thomas Heaton.1
Administration29 February 1812The final accounting for the estate of Thomas Heaton, dated 29 February 1812, reported a zero balance after a total amount of $1,848.62 in credits and debits. The itemized list of those who had received disbursements included two of Thomas's brothers, John Heaton and Washington Heaton, and Robert Clarke's name was listed next after Washington's. The document submitted and registered by the court in Washington County was signed by Martha Hardgrove and Duncan Campbell, administrators, and Isaac Kerr, Register.1

b. November 1861
Birth*November 1861Martha J. ______ was born in November 1861 in Illinois.2
Marriage*1889She married, as his second wife, James H. Spence in 1889.1,2
Census US 1900*16 June 1900Martha J. and James H. Spence appeared on the 1900 census taken on 16 June 1900 at 222 South Street, Warrensburg, Johnson County. James was 74 years of age and a retired farmer. He owned his house free of mortgage. Martha was 38 years of age, had given birth to no children, and they had been married 11 years.2
(Wife) Will15 June 1912Martha's husband prepared his will on 15 June 1912 in Warrensburg, Johnson County, Missouri. He stated he was of sound mind and memory and directed that after his decease his estate shall be disposed of as follows:

He first directed that the expenses of his funeral and last sickness and all just debts shall be paid as soon as practicable.

Second, he gave and bequeathed to his beloved wife Martha J. Spence to be hers absolutely, all of his clothing, household goods, furniture, domestic tools and utensils and $500. He did not devise to her any real estate because, in lieu thereof, he had already caused his homestead, to wit Lots One and Two of J. H. Spence's Addition to the said city of Warrensburg, to be conveyed to her absolutely.

Third, he gave and devised to his beloved daughter, and only surviving child, Catherine Braden, wife of Philip Braden, of Nameoki, Madison County, Illinois, absolutely in fee simple, and as her sole and separate estate, the following real estate situate in said Johnson County, state of Missouri, to wit the north one-third of lots forty-seven (47) and forty-eight (48) in Benjamin W. Grover's Depot Addition to the said city of Warrensburg.

Fourth, he stated his only other child was his beloved son, John W. Spence, deceased, and that he had assisted him financially to procure the farm he owned and upon which he resided at the time of his death. Therefore, his will gave and devised nothing to his son's children or lineal descendants, stating his son left surviving him twelve children, and some of them have perhaps double Christian names, but in mentioning them here from memory only, he would use but one Christian name for each. Namely, John, William, Edgar, Gentry, James, Roxanna, Katie, Jewell, and Robert Spence and Laura Shadwick, Irene Shadwick and Lucy Perry (or Peary) (or Parry).

Fifth, if after all the provisions of the foregoing sections numbered One, Two and Three are carried into effect there should yet remain some of his estate, he gave and devised the same, whether real or personal, to his said daughter Catherine Braden.

Sixth, in order that the cash may be derived to carry out the provisions of said sections numbered First and Second, to defray the necessary expenses of administration, he authorized and empowered his executor (or administrator with this will annexed) to sell and convey any of his real estate, except that herein devised, at the best price he can obtain, and without first requiring any order of Court or appraisement.

Seventh, he nominated and appointed William Shockey to be the sole executor of his will.

James signed his will with his mark in the presence of witnesses, D.W. Clark and Philip S. Day.1

ChartsDescendants of John Heaton of Lincolnshire, including the Immigrant Nathaniel
Marriage*She married Nathaniel Heaton, son of Nathaniel Heaton and Elizabeth Wight, in Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).1,3,4
Research Notes*Several researchers have published reports indicating that Mary's surname may have been "Minor". Some sources have gone so far as to identify her as Marie (Mary) Minor, daughter of Thomas Minor and Grace Palmer, born on 5 May 1651 in New London, Connecticut.

Although we would love to know her actual identity, we know she was not that Mary. Marie (Mary) Minor, daughter of Thomas and Grace Minor, died on 24 Jan 1659/60 at only eight years of age.

Heaton Families: 350 Years in America" speculated, without offering any source information, that Mary may have been related to John Maynard, also spelled "Minor", her husband's mother's third husband. Again, although Mary was probably the right age to have been one of John Maynard's missing daughters, without documentation, we don't know.5,6,7,1
(Possible Mother) Relationship NoteMary may have been the daughter of Nathaniel Heaton and Mary ______. The Heaton Families identifies Mary as the daughter of Nathaniel and Mary Heaton, however neither the "English Ancestry of Nathaniel and James Heaton" article nor Roy Heaton's Family Pedigree Chart mentions a daughter named Mary. Both refer to only 6 children for the couple, not 7.1,8,4
