My ancestor is Elizabeth Heaton who was m. to Henry Buckles in 1816 and lived and died in Iowa after middle of 1800's.
According to secondary source materials her mother was Elizabeth Gum and her father was Jonah Heaton.Jonah was a pioneer-type who moved to Kentucky near Bardstown area and later to Ohio (in Warren, Greene County area before much settlement and lived in a treehouse while he surveyed lands around.)
In an old newspaper article about him, we are led to believe he had some kind of failed relationship with a woman in Kentucky.Likely this was Elizabeth Heaton's mother for it is the right time frame.
I know absolutely nothing about with whom Elizabeth might have lived IF she was indeed Jonah's daughter for I doubt that she lived in his household but feel she likely came to Ohio with other relatives rather than staying with Gum Family.
Can anyone give me any advice as to what familythat Gum family might be in the area of Cox's Station?Many Elizabeth's shown in Gum family so likely she is shown with a subsequent husband other than Jonah Heaton.(or maybe died, but likely not.)So I am puzzled.
