James was the third James Heaton, the original being from Wrentham, Mass. James' grandfather (James of Wrentham, Mass) was one of the first grantee's of the town. He and his sons were large land owners in the area.

    Military history: pg. 26/His. of Swanzey/Served under Capt. Willard, 1747, in the winter (1747/48) and during the Revolutionary War, a large number of Middlesex Co. men were protecting the garrisons.
    James Heaton,(2nd) William and Samuel Heaton, served along with William Grimes who were of and living near the Ashuelots. The families were listed as being in the Ashelots prior to the burning of Lower Ashelot. Small wonder, that having served with his father, James the second, son James would marry William Grimes' daughter.

    From Swanzey, New Hampshire, the Heaton family moved to Shilburne, Massachusetts. James Heaton served two terms in the Revolutionary War, serving at the Battle of Ticondergoga, 1777. James and his wife, Susannah Grimes, were in Buckland, Massachusetts in 1784 before moving to Waitsfield in 1793. In 1800 the family moved to western New York.

    Susannah was the daughter of William Grimes who immigrated from England. It was ?admiringly noted that she could walk upstairs, carrying a sixty pound tub of butter under each arm, a valuable accomplishment in a new country.?

    James and Susannah's son, John Heaton, became a successful farmer in Canton, New York. He was also known for his outspokenness on being a Democrat in a predominantly Republican community.

    The family continued to live on the farm for over 100 yrs. After John died his brother, Elhanen Winchester Heaton, managed the farm. The farm eventually became part of what is now known as Heaton Hill.
