Heatons of Silver Creek, New York
Posted by: Scott Robertson (ID *****3040) Date: September 06, 2010 at 00:01:40
  of 1631

I'm looking for:
--parents for Major Grove L Heaton b: 1820 Vermont
--children for Luther Heaton b: 1796 Vermont
--children of Cyrus Heaton b: 1788 Vermont.

Also anything else on Heatons of the Chautauqua County area. I already have what's easy to find but need a jump start with at least these two individuals.

Grove L Heaton was a merchant who lived in several places but ended up in Silver Creek (originally called Fayette) where he wrote several articles on local history. I'd like to get those articles.

Luther came to town probably after his brother Nehemiah, one of the first millers in town, drowned. Luther had a grocery store and built onto it with a hollowed out section of the largest tree ever seen in those parts. He was a wagonmaker and also lived in Buffalo.

Cyrus was Luther's older brother. He was in Hanover & Silver Creek in the 1820s, was back in Windham Co, Vermont in 1830, then moved to La Porte, Indiana. His son-in-law was a well known politician Cyrus Aldrich, postmaster of Minneapolis.

There's a good website, but the email has been removed so if anyone has Mr Pelleter's email could you forward this to him?

Thanks, here's my tree:

Scott Robertson
