JAMES J. HEATON, the son of James and Elizabeth Jacobs Heaton was born in New Hope, Brown County, Ohio, May 3, 1848. He now lives in Lancaster.
Mr. Heaton and Sarah Merideth of Schuyler county were married October 6, 1867. They have the following children: Dr. E.E. Heaton, a famous surgeon of Centerville, Iowa; George Heaton of Council Bluffs, Iowa; Townsend Heaton, now in Canada; Charles Heaton of Vancouver, B.C.; Thomas Heaton of Lancaster; Zela Fenton, wife of Dr. Joshua Fenton of Mystic, Iowa; Lizzie Keller, wife of John Keller, a young businessman of Lancaster, and two deceased Effie and Junior.
In Mr. Heaton's Ohio home his father operated a tan yard and boot and shoe factory. In 1856 they came to Schuyler County, settling on a farm there.
When Mr. Heaton became of age he began farming for himself, at the same time following the carpenter's trade, afterwards becoming a first-class carpenter and builder. He remained on the farm until 1897 when he moved to Lancaster and purchased a large drug stock of Dr. P.T. Leedom. At the present time he conducts one of Schuyler County's up-to-date drug stores, carrying a large stock of paints, wallpaper, drugs and druggist's sundries. He is assisted in the store by O.D. Caywood, a registered pharmacist.
Mr. Heaton is a member of the IOOF and Masonic fraternities. He is a Democrat in politics, having long been one of the leaders of his party.
