His will showed John Heaton to be a prosperous yeoman, who conducted considerable husbandry with bees, sheep, cattle, horses, and oxen. The last year of his life he had hoped to harvest beans, peas, and wheat. He rented land in Wragny and owned a cottage in Normanby-le-Wold, and his bequests of gold to James, Thomas, Edward, and Beatrix indicated an unusual degree of affluence.

Father*Robert Heaton1 b. 1713
Mother*Margaret Davis1
Birth*1740Jeremiah Heaton was born about 1740 or perhaps a few years earlier in an area of Philadelphia that is now Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.1
Marriage*13 August 1760He married first Elizabeth Carter on 13 August 1760 in Pennsylvania.1,2
Children*Jeremiah probably had additional children, although their names are not known.1
Residence*Jeremiah was living essentially next door to his brother John Heaton in Deer Creek, York County, Pennsylvania, at the outbreak of the Revolution.3,1
Revolutionary War*1777Jeremiah was among the majority of men in York County in 1777 who refused to sign allegiance to the new American government. They were called non-associators because they refused to serve on either side during the Revolutionary War. Many of the settlers in the area had come from Europe to escape religious prosecution, and at the end of their voyage to America, upon leaving the ship in Philadelphia, had been required by the British government to take an oath to swear allegiance to the King and to sign a script to prove their loyalty. That was how a person was naturalized and became a British citizen in a British colony. Many of the settlers in York County, Pennsylvania felt they could not be cleared of their oath to the King; if they renounced their British oath, and the colonies lost the struggle, they would be obliged to swear allegiance to the King again. The richer families, and the British appointed lieutenants in York County, usually sided with the British army and were not willing to take the oath renouncing the King. A person could pay a fine to stay out of the conflict, or more precisely out of the militia. The fine helped pay for those who served in the militia and fund expenses for the war. Jeremiah paid his fine and did not participate in the war.1,4
Marriage*1799He married second Mary Fisher in 1799.1
(Uncle) 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. Among the items listed was $6 he had paid to Jeremiah to settle an amount Jeremiah had loaned to Martha Heaton on 13 May 1808 against the estate of her deceased husband Thomas Heaton.5
Residence*1810Jeremiah and Mary resided in Baltimore, Maryland, and it is believed they were there in 1810.1

Birth*14 February 1718/19John Heaton was born on 14 February 1718/19 in Hebron, Hartford County, Connecticut.2,4,1,5,6
Relationship Note*Although many stories have been communicated about John Heaton within our Heaton family, and some have been published, expanded upon, and republished on the internet, very little actual evidence has been found to provide a view of "our" John Heaton's life. He has often been confused by researchers with another John Heaton who lived in Loudoun County, Virginia from 1768 until his death in 1788. As we began to learn more about that other John Heaton, we realized how easy it was to become confused by the two different families of Heaton.

Our John Heaton was a great grandson of Nathaniel Heaton of Lincolnshire, England, who immigrated to Boston in 1634. The other John Heaton, of Loudoun County, was a great grandson of Robert Heaton of Yorkshire, England, who immigrated to Pennsylvania in 1682, settling in Bucks County. In England, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire are neighboring counties, and the home towns of the two Heaton immigrants in the mid 1600s were only about 100 miles apart. It is entirely possible, if not probable, that these two Heaton immigrants were related, although their link has not yet been identified. The John Heaton of Loudoun County was born on 24 June 1724 in Crosswicks, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He was six years younger than our John, and it was the John of Loudoun County who married Abigail Paxon in Bucks County and moved to Loudoun County in 1768, where he died in 1788. The Loudoun County John, and his wife Abigail (Paxon) Heaton, had eight children, William, Benjamin John, James, Thomas, Jane, Mary and Samuel. The life of our John, on the other hand, is not as certain.7,8,9
Relocation*John moved to "Big Swamp Meadow" in northern New Jersey where he lived for a time with his wife.10
Marriage*Nothing has been learned about John's marriage or marriages, or about the name or names of his wife or wives. He probably married at least once. Several biographies report he married Abigail PAXTON in New Jersey about 1740. We tend to disregard that information, however, since the other John Heaton of Loudoun County, Virginia married Abigail PAXON about 1750. We think the reports of the PAXTON marriage are the result of compounding errors.11,12,13
Occupation*John was likely involved in his family's iron smelting business in northern New Jersey.7,14,13
(Son) DesertionNovember 1743John was age 24 and probably married when his father was deserted by his mother in November 1743. His father filed for divorce four years later in Connecticut on 14 September 1747. According to the divorce documents, Sarah (Hawes) Heaton left with a load of goods on her horse with plans never to return to Connecticut, or to her husband, and headed for the Black River area of New Jersey where the three oldest of her sons were already living. It is not known if she ever reached New Jersey.15,16
(Son) Relocation1744John moved from Connecticut to Morris County, New Jersey, with his family, although the timing is uncertain. He may have been there with his older brothers as early as between 1734 and 1736, or moved later with his father and the youngest of his siblings around 1744. His two oldest sisters had married and remained in Connecticut.3,17,18
Relocation1760John moved with his family about 1760 to Loudoun County, Virginia.14,7
Political Service*1775He was part of a movement in 1775 for an area in northern Virginia to become a British colony called Vandalia. The effort failed, and was tried again unsuccessfully in 1792.7,19
Taxation*1777John Heaton and his sons John Heaton, William Heaton and Benjamin Heaton were taxed in 1777 in Loudoun County, Virginia.20
Biographical Info*Although many stories and been communicated within the Heaton family, and some have been published, expanded upon, and republished on the internet, very little actual evidence has been found to provide a view of John's life. He is believed by researchers to have been a true pioneer and trailblazer, to have probably moved around a lot and had many irons in the fire. He explored western Pennsylvania while it was still Indian lands. He found iron deposits along the Tagarts River in 1767, which was later called Iron Point. He became an important shareholder in the McCullogh Iron Smelter and War Supply Company in 1779. During this period his son John stayed in Loudoun County to tend the farm.7,21
Revolutionary War*17 January 1781Either the father John Heaton or the son John Heaton took an active part in the Revolutionary War. He may have served with Captain Hills in the Battle of the Cowpens on 17 January 1781 in South Carolina. Given their respective ages in 1781, Tenmile Country was inclined to identify the son as the early Captain John Heaton.22,14,23
Residence*1790John settled by 1790 near his brothers on Ruff's Creek in that part of Washington County, Pennsylvania that would become Greene County in 1796. John was identified by Howard Leckey in his Tenmile Country as the ancestor of the Ruff's Creek Heatons.14
(Head of Household) Research Notes1790The names of the heads of household on the 1790 Census taken in Washington County, Pennsylvania, were not later alphabetized so it's possible to get a feel for relatives and other neighbors who probably lived nearby. On page 170, Daniel Heaton is near the top of the census page, and his son David is across from him on page 171. William Heaton is next to David. Near the bottom of page 170, Isaac Heaton is listed between his sons John and Henry. Jonah "Eaton" appears a short distance above them on the same page. John Heaton and William "Eaton" appear near the top and bottom of page 159, another Isaac Heaton is on page 160, Miles Heaton on page 169, John "Hitton" on page 183, Ebenezer Heaton on page 192 and another John Heaton on page 199.

The colony would have been located south of the Ohio River, primarily in what are now West Virginia and northeastern Kentucky. Vandalia was never approved by the British Crown and had no colonial government, although some Virginians and Pennsylvanians had already settled there.

    After the American Revolutionary War, the Vandalia settlers sought unsuccessfully to be admitted as a state called Westsylvania. However, they had no legal title to the land and were opposed by the governments of Virginia and Pennsylvania, which both claimed the area as their own under colonial charters. Ultimately the federal government split the area between Pennsylvania and Virginia according to the Mason–Dixon line.[1] Kentucky was later settled as a territory and admitted as a state; West Virginia was admitted as a state during the American Civil War".

Birth*16 December 1760John Heaton was born on 16 December 1760 in Frederick County, Virginia.4,2,5,6
Revolutionary War*At an early age John entered the military service in Virginia and became a proficient soldier.7,6
Revolutionary War1780Heaton Families II reported he was commissioned a Captain in 1780 by Colonel Daniel Morgan to confer with the Shawnee Indians and that John resigned his commission and returned to Virginia. There is a tradition in the Heaton family, noted in Tenmile Country, that John and his brother Henry Heaton disagreed with the higher officers under whom they served and removed to Western Pennsylvania to escape punishment.8,6
Residence*The brothers John and Henry Heaton established their residence in Washington County, Pennsylvania, in the vicinity of what would become Jefferson, in Greene County. Their parents and some of their siblings would follow them to the area in 1785.6
Marriage*3 March 1780He married, as her second husband, Sarah (Morgan) Roberts, daughter of ______ Morgan, on 3 March 1780 in Pennsylvania. Heaton Families II believed Sarah to be a niece of Colonel Daniel Morgan. Her daughter, Harriett Roberts, was raised in the household of John Heaton.2,1,9,10
Name VariationJohn was identified as Colonel John Heaton in Washington and Greene Counties, Pennsylvania as a means to distinguish him from the several other John Heaton's in the area.8,6
Revolutionary War1782While still a very young man, in 1782, John served as a Major in the Frontier Rangers of Washington County, Pennsylvania. The Indian troubles that followed the Revolution made the maintenance of troops necessary for several years after the war, and John Heaton attained the rank of Inspector of Militia.11,6
Occupation As soon as John arrived in the western country, he proceeded to obtain land, by grant and by purchase, until he became one of the largest land owners in what is now Greene County, Pennsylvania. He also purchased land in the state of Louisiana. Upon obtaining a patent for land in Greene County, he laid out a town which became a part of Jefferson. He built a large cabin, a great house for that time, by 1790, and had extensive business interests in the area. He built a large flour mill and ran a whiskey distilling operation. He was able to send his flour and whiskey products down the river to Louisville and New Orleans in his own keel boats, and donated 3 tons of grain per year to the needy. By 1792 he had 12 slaves, and by 1812 had freed them all.6,12,13
(Head of Household) Research Notes1790The names of the heads of household on the 1790 Census taken in Washington County, Pennsylvania, were not later alphabetized so it's possible to get a feel for relatives and other neighbors who probably lived nearby. On page 170, Daniel Heaton is near the top of the census page, and his son David is across from him on page 171. William Heaton is next to David. Near the bottom of page 170, Isaac Heaton is listed between his sons John and Henry. Jonah "Eaton" appears a short distance above them on the same page.

Birth*say 1490John Heaton was born say 1490 in England.1
Marriage*before 1517He married Alice ______ before 1517 in England.1
Occupation*John was a husbandman in Lincolnshire.1
Will*17 June 1552John prepared his will on 17 June 1552 at Fotherby, Lincolnshire. At that time, Fotherby was in the grip of the black death, which decimated the population. John was seeing the plague all around him and, fearing the worst, had decided to put his affairs in order. By late July he and his wife Alice had fallen ill, and their son Oliver had died.2
Codicil*25 July 1552He made a codicil to his will on 25 July 15521
Death*1552 and died of the plague shortly after that date.3
Estate*6 October 1552His will was not proved at the Consistory Court of Lincoln, Lincolnshire, until 6 October 1552, some months after his death, probably due to the effects of the plague on the community at large. His will showed John Heaton to be a prosperous yeoman, who conducted considerable husbandry with bees, sheep, cattle, horses, and oxen. The last year of his life he had hoped to harvest beans, peas, and wheat. He rented land in Wragny and owned a cottage in Normanby-le-Wold. His bequests of gold to James, Thomas, Edward, and Beatrix indicated an unusual degree of affluence. For additional information regarding his specific bequests, excerpts of his will are included in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register source.4
