The HESTON Family Reunion in Grand Rapids, Ohio at the Toledo Metro Parks Miami Shelter on AUG 2, 2014 Saturday was a success. We had 15 HESTON cousins from as far away as New Mexico, Texas (myself and other cousins), and Pennsylvania (my sister Monica McBride) attend. Pat Heston Horn's story was recorded.

E-mail message from Barbara Heston Moore to Martin J. Bellard JUN 9, 2014

A note for the guestbook: The missionaries who went to China in 1900 were Leona's 2x great aunt and her husband. He died of illness, but the Boxers opened up the graves in the cemetery and then put his head on a stake alongside the road.

HESTON Part 2 Trip Continued by Monica McBride

I got several gifts from Leona Heston. The first gift was a set of pillow cases. They were embroidered with Blue flowers and a butterfly on each of the pillow cases.

The 2nd gift was a crocheted tea cups which were very small. They were made from a "Sugar starch for crocheted baskets and candy dishes, small vases, etc" that Leona makes.

The 3rd gift was a pin cushion that was crocheted.

HESTON Part 2 Trip
by Monica McBride

I, Monica A. McBride, sister of Martin J. Bellard, took a trip to visit my distant cousins. The following people were at the Heston reunion: Leona Heston, her cousin Barbara Heston Moore and her husband Richard. Leona's grandson Derrick Weida attended also.

We had lunch of pineapple with Bacon pizza and grapes.

Barbara & Leona showed me a family tree book made by Leona. The family tree book showed a picture of her great, great aunt and her husband. Barbara & Leona's great, great Aunt's husband was killed. Leona's great, great Aunt and her husband were missionaries in China in 1900. Her husband was beheaded in the boxing rebellion. They told me that story was passed down in the generations by word of mouth.

____________________________________________________________

Sugar Starch for Crocheted Baskets, candy dishes, small vases, etc.

by Leona Heston Houser 360-794-9758

What I use to do 4 or 5 at a time.

In a 2 qt pan,

1. Use 2 cups sugar to 1 cup of water.
2. Bring to crystal clear boil, turn temperature down one notch.
3. Boil a good 5 minutes.
4. Then watch closely & test with spoon, just before it reaches stringy stage,
5. Remove from heat, then dip with spoon into hot starch your items and soak thoroughly.

Using 2 large spoons, (One with holes) squeeze out excess moisture & lay on towels. (I use 2 with foil in between.)

6. Spread out on towels, cover and roll in towel, squeezing out excess moisture.

Spread on a second towel and repeat process, then spread on a 3rd clean towel and after about the 1st hour, begin with your hands shaping item every half hour or so.

Eventually, it will stay in shape on its own.

The finished process will last a good 2 or 3 years, depending on how often you vacuum with brush.

Then you wash it, rinse it, dry it, and start over again.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!

I have been researching my family for 20 years. My grandmother was Betty Elaine Heston Thomas. She was born in Richland County, Ohio. Her Aunt Susan used to be involved in the Heston Historial and used to attend all the early reunions. I do have a copy of 2 reunion photos (taken Richland County, Ohio). I am always will to share information and help others if they need help. Betty's parents house is the Paul Revere's restaurant. Her parents were Marion Atwood Heston and Ethel Othello Milligan. Marion died young leaving his wife to raise 8 children. None of the children are living anymore. I am very interested in the Heston family reunion.

Hi Barbara Heston Moore and Monica (Bellard) McBride,

Here is the HESTON Family Reunion Guestbook entry from Monica (Bellard) McBride's phone call messages to me:

APR 23, 2014 Wednesday at 4:58 PM Central Time - Plans were made for the HESTON Family Reunion Part 2 in Monroe, Washington on May 6, 2014 Tuesday 11 AM. Martin Bellard's NOTE: This reunion was named Part 2 because it was a continuation of my own HESTON Family Reunion last year in Monroe, Washington on AUG 3, 2013 when Monica called us on the phone to say hi since she was not able to come to the reunion. See HESTON Guestbook entry on 2013-08-06.


MAY 6, 2014 Tuesday at 6:38 PM Central Time - The HESTON Family Reunion visit went well. It was from 11 AM to 2:44 PM Pacific Time.

Monica's friend Jeff from Seattle, Washington, Monica (Bellard) McBride from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Barbara Heston Moore and her husband Richard Moore from (Renton) near Seattle, Washington all went to Monroe, Washington to visit with Leona Heston Houser and Leona's grandson Derrick. Martin Bellard's NOTE: This is her grandson - Derrick Weida of Monroe, Washington.

I saw some new HESTON information about the Boxer Rebellion. Martin Bellard's NOTE: The Boxer Rebellion was in China in 1900.


MAY 6, 2014 Tuesday at 6:43 PM Central Time - The Boxer Rebellion story that we learned about at the HESTON Family Reunion Part 2 in Monroe, Washington was about Leona's great aunt and her husband who were missionaries there. The great aunt's husband got killed when they chopped off his head.

They saw two HESTON books. There was book one and book two. Martin Bellard's NOTE: This is referring to two issues of the HESTON Family Newsletter. They are the HESTON FAMILY NEWSLETTER, Snail Mail Version, VOL. 1 - NO. 1 - - - MAY 2006 and the HESTON FAMILY NEWSLETTER, Snail Mail Version, VOL. 2 - NO. 1 - - - SEP 2007.

Jeff brought Monica McBride to the HESTON Family Reunion in Monroe, Washington at 11 AM. Leona Heston Houser and her grandson Derrick were there. Barbara Heston Moore and her husband Richard Moore came five minutes later at 11:05 AM. We had Pineapple Pizza with Bacon and some grapes. We talked and socialized. We took some pictures. Leona Heston Houser and Barbara Heston Moore gave me some gifts; they were hand-embroidered pillow cases. We took some more pictures.

On May 6, 2014, we had an annual Heston Reunion at Leona Heston-Houser's home in Monroe, WA. Those attending were: Leona; her grandson - Derrick Weida of Monroe; Barbara Heston-Moore and her husband, Richard, of Renton, WA; Monica Bellard-McBride from Pittsburgh, PA, and her friend, Jeff - from Seattle. What a great time we all had, especially the girls, as we talked about all the family history we could fit into 3 hours of conversation! Monica took with her a set of hand-embroidered pillow cases and small crocheted cups which had been sugar-starched, both from Leona. We examined the type-written family diary of the "Boxer Rebellion" in China, 1900, by Leona's 2x Great Aunt, Mary LaRhue Mateer, and decided to write a new forward to show how she is related to the Heston's. Then it will be a nice addition to our family history libraries. Then it was time for Monica to leave, if she and Jeff were going to make it to Steven's Pass to see the Cascade Mountains and the snow. Tomorrow they will take a ferry boat to Bremerton to see a ship like the one her brother, Martin Bellard, was on while in the Navy. It will be a sunny day in the NW!

I saw an earlier posts on rootsweb. I have slightly different data which is not surprising but my records which are not original source has Sarah Heston being born in 1765 in Williamsport, Franklin Co, PA. But it probably doesn't matter.

Sarah Heston was a younger sister to Zebulon III, who is my great-great-great-great-great grandfather. Their parents Zebulon Jr. Heston and Elizabeth Buckman.

Any more details on the reunion on August 3rd in Monroe?

To my fellow HESTON Family descendants,

Plans have begun for the next year's HESTON Family Reunion. The Seventh Annual National HESTON Family Reunion will be held in Lucas County, Ohio on AUG 2, 2014 Saturday. Ohio was the location of where John P. HESTON wanted to have the HESTON Family Reunion in 1962. This occasion will celebrate the 52nd Anniversary of that Reunion which was planned but never held in 1962. Plan now to attend next year. I am wanting to have it in Ohio where a lot of HESTON history occurred as the HESTON Family spread westward in the 1800's.

Brent Stover will help me to host the 2014 HESTON Family Reunion in Lucas County, Ohio similar to how Karen and Rick Johnson helped set up the Reunion in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on AUG 6, 2011 Saturday AND how Barbara Heston Moore helped set up the Reunion in Monroe (near Seattle), Washington on AUG 3, 2013 Saturday.

This year, the 2014 HESTON Family Reunion will be at one of Toledo's Metroparks, Providence Park. The date of our event is Saturday August 2, 2014. The address is: 13827 Old U.S. 24, Grand Rapids, Ohio 43522 at the Miami Shelter at Providence Park.

Brent Stover is setting up a website at Facebook for the 2014 HESTON Family Reunion.

from your HESTON Family cousin,

Martin J. Bellard

Hi, I came across your website and hope you might be able to point me in the right direction. I am searching for Catherine Heston born about 1767. I do not know her parents but she married Conley McFadden and they had Jane McFadden, born 9 Jan 1787 at New Jersey. Jane married Samuel Delaplain on 10 Dec 1804 at Mason Co, KY. I am applying for a DAR membership under Conley McFadden's Revolutionary War service and need proof of Catherine Heston and Conley McFadden's relationship. Any help you could provide is much appreciated. Thanks, Sandy

Interested in HESTON Family Genealogy Research? Yes, this time it is about gravestone inscriptions.
Comments:
The information about the birth date is based on an e-mail message from Carla Hass with Find A Grave on MAY 21, 2013 to Barbara Heston Moore where she writes about the gravestone for John W. Heston: "I am 90% sure it is 24 Sept 1858... The inscription says 56 Y, 3 mths, 13 days".

John W. Heston, b. 11 Jun 1802 in Hestonville, PA, d. 24 Sep 1858, m. Esther Burd, d. 4 Jun 1869 in PA. Both are buried in Pine Grove Mills cem., Centre county, PA. (Birthdate is determined by back-dating the information on the grave marker: 56 years, 3 months, and 13 days.)

This revises the earlier lineage records for John W. Heston which listed his birth date as 11 JUN 1800.

On AUG 3, 2013 Saturday we went to Monroe, Washington for the Sixth Annual National HESTON Family Reunion which was held at Leona Heston Houser's property. Leona has become 85 years old today Tuesday AUG 6, 2013.

25 HESTON cousins came to this HESTON Family Reunion. This is the second highest number of HESTON cousins to attend an Annual National HESTON Family Reunion since 2001.

We called Pat Heston Horn at the HESTON Family Reunion. Pat spoke with Barbara Heston Moore, Leona Heston Houser and myself, Martin J. Bellard (not Martin Heston as written below in a previous Guestbook entry). Also, Monica McBride and Mark Bellard called us on the phone to say hi since they were not able to come to the HESTON Family Reunion.

Notes for John BALLARD
Wrightstown Twp. 1785 John Bellard 1 horse 1 cow no land no servants
Ernest Bellard gives family tradition that John Ballard was Revolutionary War soldier camped on Heston land. He and Sarah fell in love and were married despite Sarah's parents' efforts to discourage the relationship.
Most of the family went from Bucks Co, PA to Washington Co, PA, to Trumbull Co, OH (early 1800s)
"Family tradition has it that John Bellard first met the lady of his choice when he, a Revolutionary soldier, encamped on the Heston family estate. The Hestons, staunch Quakers, were not favorably inclined toward the match and too immediate steps to disinherit the young Quakeress."
1807 Census - residing in Bethlehem Twp, Washington Co, PA

Notes for Sarah HESTON
Listed in father's will, probated in Washington Co, PA in 1807
Also said to be the 5th child

Lydia and Harry were my great-grandparents, making me an 11th generation descendant. I wrote an article about Abner and Mercy which was published in the Ohio Genealogical Society Quarterly, Spring 2011, and hope to write another article on Abraham's family. I'm not sure about my participation right now, but just wanted to share this info especially for other descendants of Abner and Mercy.

I am a descendent of Elisha Byrd Heston and Catherine Eckle. She was born in 1831, so he might have been at the same time. My grandmother thought his parents were John and Esther. That's all I know. I have never found them in the Zebulon Heston History pages, which I used to have from my father. I wonder if we are from the Irish Heston's. Any one knowing of a connection please contact me. I live near Seattle, WA. My phone # is 425-271-2948.

To my HESTON Family cousins,

Some of our HESTON ancestors served in the military during the American Revolutionary War and the American Civil War; such as John BELLARD (or BALLARD), Johnathan BELLARD, and Sylveny Clisby BELLARD.

John BELLARD (or BALLARD) served in the American Revolutionary War from Pennsylvania. I have not been able to find his gravestone in Ohio. He married Sarah HESTON, the daughter of Zebulon HESTON III (Farmer) and Sarah BURGESS.

Johnathan BELLARD served in the American Civil War from Ohio and was killed in OCT 1862 and is probably also buried in Ohio.

Sylveny Clisby BELLARD served in the American Civil War from Ohio.

Johnathan BELLARD and Sylveny Clisby BELLARD are the grandsons of John BELLARD (or BALLARD) and Sarah HESTON. Johnathan and Clisby are the sons of David BELLARD and Elizabeth NEWBORN. I am descended from their brother Thomas BELLARD, also a grandson of John BELLARD (or BALLARD) and Sarah HESTON. Thomas BELLARD had moved from Ohio to Branch County, Michigan in the 1840's.

your HESTON Family cousin,

Martin J. BELLARD

Yes, I have also heard of Bland W BALLARD; and I agree with you that our John is NOT the one who is the brother of Bland W BALLARD from Kentucky. I still do not know much about him. I know that he was in the Revolutionary War when he met Sarah HESTON's family and married her in 1784 after the war. They had 14 children. I am descended from their son David born in 1797. The following information is from an e-mail message from my cousin Earl Kumfer. I only copied the information about John BALLARD, his wife Sarah HESTON, and two of their 14 children, your anscestor Mary BALLARD and my anscestor David BALLARD:

My message 1 of 2 to Cheryl Dieter:

Yes, it is always nice to hear from a descendant of Sarah (HESTON) BALLARD.

Hi! I am Martin J. BELLARD. I have been researching the BELLARD - BALLARD Family for 42 years since I was a young teenager living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our family went on a vacation in AUG 1970 where I met my first cousin Earl KUMFER in Fort Wayne, Indiana who is also a descendant and researcher of our BELLARD - BALLARD family. Within three years I easily got back to my 3rd Great-grandparents David BELLARD (BALLARD) 1797 - 1863 and his wife Elizabeth NEWBORN. For many years, I had believed that David was an immigrant from Germany based on the many stories I had learned from our correspondance with our grandpa's sister Lillie (BELLARD) BURNETT STRAUSS.

I first found out, in DEC 1998, about my HESTON Family ancestors. And I found out, in DEC 2000, about our cousin John P. HESTON, the Editor and Publisher of the HESTON HISTORIAN newsletters and directories written from 1957 to 1961, as well as the three Annual National HESTON Family Reunions which he had organized - 1959 in Pennsylvania, 1960 in Iowa, and 1961 in California.

I became so inspired by the work of John P. HESTON, that I decided to become actively involved with the HESTON Family with Newsletters and Reunions. The first thing that I did was to research thru several of the past years of EVERTON'S GENEALOGICAL HELPER Magazine which annually lists Family Associations, Family Newsletters, and Family Reunions. To my dismay, I discovered nothing listed for the HESTON Family.

So, on JAN 7, 2001 Sunday evening, I established the HESTON FAMILY ASSOCIATION with plans for future Newsletters and Reunions. This is all from the inspiration by the work of John P. HESTON (1911 - 1970), of Allen Park, Michigan. This began with a listing which I placed in the Everton's Genealogical Helper in their MAR/APR 2001 issue. I placed another listing for the HESTON FAMILY ASSOCIATION in the EVERTON'S FAMILY HISTORY (Magazine's new name) in their MAR/APR 2002 issue.

I established the HESTON Family Website on JUL 7, 2002 Sunday Afternoon; opened the HESTON Family Guestbook on SEP 2, 2002 Monday Evening.

Hello:
I was told that you are probably the person to go to so here I am!

Sorry to make this mumble jumble but after I pasted in my family tree I was unable to put what I wanted where I wanted it so I have to put it here.

I have been doing some research on my family tree and started looking at the Bland W Ballard whole family which so many trees on Ancestry claim our John Ballard is from. However, since he was suppose to have died in 1788 at the Massacre at Tick Creek it seems highly doubtful to me that our John who lived until 1818 is the same fellow. Also since Sarah was from PA it is doubtful she got over to Kentucky. Now, after quite a bit of reading I know that there were many Ballards who lived in Virginia. Is our John Ballard from this line (maybe a cousin of Bland W Ballard) or is this an entirely different family from a different county (not Spotsylvania, Virginia). I am told you are the person with the answers!!! Maybe you would be willing to do so. I am just sure that our JOhn is NOT the one who is the brother of Bland W Ballard and could use some help in finding out who he really is.

I am related as John and Sarah had a daughter, Mary, who is my 4th GG.

Tracing your Mayo Ancestors, 2nd Edition; by Brian Smith, $18.95; 160 pp; Paperback; 5.75x9; Published: 2010; ISBN: 9780956362438.

"In comparison with most other Irish counties, Mayo has fewer records of value to family historians. This makes it important to use the existing records to their best advantage... This book sets out the records available, where they can be accessed, and how they can be used to best effect in tracing Mayo families."

The Family Reunion will be in Ohio the following two years of 2013 and 2014.

HESTON wanted to have the HESTON Family Reunion in 1962. This occasion will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of that Reunion which was planned but never held in 1962. Plan now to attend this year.

We need someone to help me to host the 2012 HESTON Family Reunion similar to how Karen and Rick Johnson helped set up the Reunion last year (2011) in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

from your HESTON Family cousin,

Martin J. Bellard

Hi, Mardi, and thanks, Martin, for forwarding Mardi's inquiry. Mardi, your line is directly related back to the original Zebulon Heston and Dorothy Hutchinson - but I'd guess you're already aware of that. I'll just summarize what I have on your line for Martin:

[I would love to know where Mahlon died in Ohio and where buried]. This Mahlon was the son of Zebulon Heston (we think of him as the 3rd Zebulon), b 18 Jan 1734, Wrightstown MM, Bucks, PA; d BEF 08 Apr 1807, East Bethlehem Twp, Washington, PA; m Buckingham MM, Bucks, PA, 27 Oct 1756, Sarah Burgess, b 18 Nov 1738, Falls Twp, Bucks, PA; d 19 Jan 1810, East Bethlehem Twp, Washington, PA; dau of Joseph Burgess and Hannah Wilson.

Re: Edward W. Heston's children

Surnames: Coggins, Heston, Longaker

Hi there;

my grandmother Alice Coggins was Hannah Heston & David Coggins great granddaughter. The information I have about Edward Warner Hestons's children match yours. i did not know that they were from his 2nd wife, Sarah Hall. Am I correct that Edward Hestons grandfather was Zebulon, born 1670 in Middelsex England? Any clue as to who Zebulons parents were? I am living out here in California and am fascinated by all of my distant relatives!

These are answers about Edward Warner Heston's family asked by Alice Longaker-Bunuan (aka A.J.) on the HESTON Message Board here at Rootsweb (dot) com on 16 Nov 2011. As of now, there are NO clues as to who Zebulon Heston's parents were.

Yes, Edward Warner Heston is the grandson of Zebulon Heston and Dorothy Hutchinson. His parents were Jacob Heston and Mary Warner.

The First Heston Generation of (The Immigrants) Zebulon HESTON and Dorothy HUTCHINSON by Pat (Heston) Horn on JAN 12, 2005 Wednesday; Website Editor - Martin J. Bellard on FEB 15, 2007 Thursday.

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hestonfamily/family-history/first-generation.html

Zebulon Heston came to Eastham, Barnstable Co, MA, in 1684, in company with one Benjamin Wiggins, having sailed from Cornwall, England. Wilfred Jordan in his "Colonial and Revolutionary Families of PA", stated that Zebulon came from Heston Parish, Middlesex Co, England, but this has never been substantiated. It is believed that Zebulon was not a Quaker while in England, but converted to Quakerism, as W. W. Davis' History of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, states, "His sympathies, which had been aroused for Friends while in New England by the unjust persecution of the Quakers, led to his becoming a member of their Society."

Pat Heston Horn told Dave Heston and I that I should set a deadline for making plans for next year. By MAR 31, 2012 I should have the details of who in California will help me to host the 2012 HESTON Family Reunion similar to how Karen and Rick Johnson helped set up the Reunion this year in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Otherwise, if the deadline goes past, then I should pick another state such as Ohio, Indiana, or Illinois. This is because how much more expensive California will be. --- MJB

I am here at the home of Rick and Karen Johnson in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for the Fourth Annual National HESTON Family Reunion.

This HESTON Family Reunion was a wonderful success with 10 HESTON Family cousins in attendance.

I want to give a special thank you to Rick and Karen Johnson for coordinating the Reunion. I also want to give special thanks to Pat Heston Horn for her wonderful presentation of HESTON Family History which her father, John P. Heston, began in the 1950's and 1960's AND which Pat has continued working on for many years herself. This was similar to her presentation made two years ago in Wycombe and Wrightstown, Pennsylvania.

Plans have been made for the Fifth Annual National HESTON Family Reunion to be held in California in 2012, which was also the location of a previous HESTON Family Reunion in 1961 led by John P. HESTON. This occasion will celebrate the 51st Anniversary of that previous Reunion in 1961. Plan now to attend next year. --- Martin J. Bellard

Had a great time in Cedar Rapids Iowa meeting all the long lost cousins. For all you Hestons who missed it, the food was FANTASTIC. Rick and Karen outdid themselves. I especially liked the secret recipe pie and the beans!

We were graced with Pat Heston Horn's presence. She travelled from Chicago with her gigantic book of names and dates and we each came away knowing a little more than when we arrived. One cousin arrived with only the first name of his grandpo' and after Pat opened her book, he went home with a long lineage.

People talk about the kindness of strangers but today we found the kindness of our Heston cousins. Zebulon would be proud.

Greeting from Cedar Rapids! Karen & Rick Johnson are being superb hosts and have invited about 10 distant distant cousins (i.e., "strangers") into their lovely home. I can't thank them enough for their hospitality. It's a treat to meet new relatives and folks who have an interest in charting the descendants of Zebulon Heston.

Also, an an additional plus, Newton KS (2008) was blazing hot after noon, Wrightstown PA (2009) was a soaking wet day. I don't know what the weather was in 2010, I missed that one, but this year the eastern Iowa weather is very pleasant.

I'll post a couple photos soon on my Heston genealogy shared-files site at http://mediafire.com/heston.

I am attending the 4th Annual Heston family reunion today in Cedar Rapids, IA with a total of 10 individuals. I am part of the 10 cousins in attendance and am learning a lot about my ancestry back to Zebulon Heston that came over from England. I am the brother of Richard Heston that drove Monica McBride from the Greyhound Bus Station to Hotel Canfield for last years Heston reunion in Dubuque, Iowa. Unfortunately Richard and his wife Joan were unable to attend the reunion because of work responsibilities. His daughter Kate married Byron Heitz and they now have a son Aiden where they all reside in Dubuque. There is a lot of good food and good company. I look forward to next years Heston reunion in California and sharing this ancestry with my children. It's a great experience!

To: "Martin J. Bellard" <bellard1956mj@yahoo.com>

Hello Martin.

Thank you for both your emails. Yes, Darrell (Leslie) is my 2nd cousin. His dad and my grandmother were brother and sister. ... ...

My mother had some contact with him, I never met him. It is nice to find out he is apparently busy with the genealogical stuff too. ... ...

You asked about mrs. Miller. She has a genelogical mailinglist:

http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~ballard/maillist.html

Not so long ago she posted a message in the newsgroup alt.genealogy and offered a free lookup in her huge Ballard database. We emailed her and she gave us her info about George Ballard ect. I will forward her email to you.
Her email address is on the website above too, so you can directly ask about her sources.

... ... We found out that Robert Morris apparently has a lot of info too, yet we have no (email)address of him. If possible we would love to get in contact with him too.

... ... and we are thinking about joining your Heston Family Association. We would really appreciate any information on the Ballard line further back then John and Sarah (Heston) Ballard.

Cousin greetings.

Beth & Frans

Hi HESTON Family cousins,

As for the time (hours on that day of AUG 6, 2011 Saturday) for the Reunion; generally, I try to set it at around 9 AM to 5 PM which is fine when the location is at a public place like a Park or a Library. But since it is to be at our cousin's home (Karen and Rick Johnson in Cedar Rapids, Iowa); and we are her guests; I am letting her set the hours for the wonderful occasion. As soon as I find out from them; I can let you HESTON cousins know.

So far it seems that that those responding for attending is still under twenty HESTON cousins. I remember Karen Johnson writing an e-mail message to me that she wanted it in her home, unless we had more than 20 people coming.

I keep the current number and list of those wanting to come to the Reunion at the Homepage of this HESTON Family Website and this HESTON Family Guestbook.

As for the food; I think the Johnsons' are providing the food; but I think that it would be nice if others bring something as well.

As for the plans for the day; Pat Heston Horn is our guest speaker again. Pat is the daughter of John P. Heston who set up HESTON Family Reunions and wrote the HESTON Historian newsletter in the previous generation from 1957 to 1961. Taking pictures, sharing stories, looking at the various exhibits of pictures and other stuff, exchanging addresses, etc are other things that we will be doing.

This is our Fourth Annual National HESTON Family Reunion.

your HESTON Cousin,

Martin

Hi Patrice,

Here are the answers to the Name Change Mystery:

The children were teased in school; so the family changed their last name from HOLLOPETER to the mother's maiden name of HESTON. See the copy-pasted entries from the HESTON Family Guestbook. I have sent a CC of this message to Sue Daniels; hopefully, she still has the same e-mail address. Sue Daniels would be your first cousin. I am also putting an entry on the HESTON Family Guestbook for you and any HESTON cousin to see.

I do not have much official documentation. Best way to find out about DAR requirements would be to contact them personally requesting that information.

I have sent a CC of this message to Pat Heston Horn; hopefully, she can answer some of your questions as well; she has worked on HESTON Family genealogy for many years. She is coming to our HESTON Family Reunion in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on AUG 6, 2011 Saturday.

your HESTON Family cousin,

Martin J. Bellard

My husband and children are descendants of:
1) Zebulon Heston and Dorothy Hutchinson
2) Zebulon Heston and Elizabeth Buckman
3) William Heston and Mercy Cutler
4) Phineas Heston and Sarah Wharton
5) Joseph Heston and Rachel Conner
6) *Hester (Esther Ann) Heston and William Henry Hollopeter
7) Harry Heston and Rose Welsh
8) Alma Heston Horwath and Ray Horwath
9) Joe Horwath and Patrice
Family "mystery", why did *Hester Heston (daughter of Joseph and Rachel) and spouse William Hentry Hollopeter change William Hentry Hollopeter's name to William Henry Heston?

I would like documentation and copies of records relating to immigration of Zebulon Heston, Dorothy Hutchinson's family,and Elizabeth Buckman's family as well. Also curious about DAR qualification but Isaiah Heston was William's brother, therefore family is not a direct descendant.

My mother-in-law Alma Heston Horwath died in 1999 but had conducted her own genealogy research in the 1970's. We have a handwritten family tree but I would like to collect actual records to substantiate the research for subsequent generations of the family.

Kind regards,

Patrice

I am decended from Zebulon Heston. My GGGGrandmother married a Hollopeter but they changed their family name to her family's name, Heston, because their children were being teased at school. They lived in Iowa. My Grandparents moved to Minnesota when my mother was 3. They had 4 daughters, all but my mother are now gone, and so will end this branch of the "Heston" name in our family.

"Hi, Martin and Welcome, Dorothy: Yes, I'm hoping to attend the Heston Reunion. I'm delighted to learn you're into genealogy, Dorothy. Yes, it's quite addictive. Hi, Karen & Rick - would love to come to Cedar Rapids, IA. If I can been given a time and address, I'll find it with my trusty gps. Looking forward to sharing information. I have all my Heston genealogy in a stand-alone computer in Excel but now the file is so big, I can't copy it onto a disc! But I'll bring my trusty old Heston Genealogy book (mainly my Dad's original info with some additions by me) and if there are more specifics I'll collect it to add to my computer info. Looking forward to seeing you all. Pat Heston Horn"

To my HESTON Family cousins,

Four HESTON Family descendants came to the Third Annual National HESTON Family Reunion in Dubuque, Iowa on AUG 7, 2010 Saturday. It was located at the Grand River Center, 500 Bell Street, Dubuque, IA 52001.

The four HESTON Family descendants that came to the Family Reunion were Martin J. Bellard from Texas, his sister Monica (Bellard) McBride from Pennsylvania, and Rick and Karen Johnson from Iowa.

We had decided there on AUG 7, 2010 Saturday at the HESTON Family Reunion to make a contest to decide where we will have next year's reunion.

Between now and DEC 31, 2010; we will decide to have the reunion either in Iowa or in California. If it is in Iowa, then we could hold it in Cedar Rapids OR in Dubuque where we were on that day in AUG 2010. If it is in California, then the site will be determined by HESTON family descendants who live there in California.

The number of HESTON Family descendants who make a confirmed decision to come to the next reunion by notifying me by E-mail message OR by submitting a HESTON Guestbook entry will determine where we hold next year's HESTON Family Reunion; either in Iowa or in California.

As of right now on SEP 17, 2010 Friday, it is still Iowa - 4 HESTON descendants who came there last month; California - 0 HESTON descendants. We voted for Iowa because 50 years ago; several hundred (possibly 350 HESTON descendants came) AND last month ONLY four of us HESTON descendants came.

Good luck to all who want to come to determine where we shall meet next year.

Thank you,

If you are interested in deciding the location for the HESTON Family Reunion; then send me an E-Mail Message at bellard1956mj@yahoo.com as soon as possible.

your HESTON Family cousin,

Martin J. Bellard

Notice to all HESTON Family researchers:

The HESTON Family lineage submitted on 2010-05-13 of Margaret L. Anderson (Arrieta) has been removed from the HESTON FAMILY descendants guestbook per her request. I have copy-pasted her information which she had sent me by E-Mail messages which shows that she is NOT a HESTON Family descendant:

"Could you please do me the kind favor of removing my posts from your website, if that is possible."

"I recently received my great grandfather (Clarence Adley Carpenter)'s death certificate, and in fact his parents are not Allen Carpenter and Amanda Ballard. His father was Charles Carpenter".... "Clarence's parents are Charles B. Carpenter and Mary Jean Bradley."

I attended the 2010 HESTON Family Reunion at the Grand River Center in Dubuque, Iowa. The reunion meeting room is being held from 10 AM to 8 PM. It is now 4:56 PM.

A little after 1 PM, Rick Johnson and his wife Karen who is a Heston descendant, visited my brother Martin and I for 2 1/2 hours. They drove 65 miles from Cedar Rapids, Iowa along with their dog, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel called "Tucker". We had a wonderful time!

We are currently waiting for 2 possible other people. One is Richard Heston and the other is his future son-in-law-to-be Byron Heitz. He is planning to get married on OCT 16, 2010 to Kate Heston, the daughter of Richard and Joan Heston of Dubuque, Iowa; who I got to meet yesterday when they (Richard Heston and Byron Heitz) drove me from the Greyhound Bus Station to Hotel Canfield. Keep them in your prayers and best wishes.

I have learned an important aspect of Family Tree Reunions. And that it is more important for a quality of a reunion than the quanity of people who are there. I had hoped to see a lot of you Heston's, but the visit was swell! My brother has another contact, Karen Johnson who has wonderful Heston informaton. This has been a wonderful day!

I, Monica, actually took a 16 hour Greyhound bus ride from Pittsburgh, PA to be at this HESTON Family Reunion in Dubuque, IA! I look forward to the next reunion.

Third Annual National HESTON Family Reunion

2010 HESTON Family Reunion CoOrdinator Needed

To my HESTON FAMILY Relatives,

Would you like to be our 2010 HESTON FAMILY REUNION Co-Ordinator for the Third Annual National HESTON FAMILY REUNION to be held in IOWA this summer? I sure could use the help from someone who lives near the area and knows it well enough to help get this HESTON FAMILY REUNION moving to be a success for all of us HESTON cousins. Specific city and location to be determined in IOWA. We also need one (or more) HESTON Cousins to be the Coorrdinator(s) for the Reunion in IOWA in 2010. If you are interested in planning the HESTON FAMILY REUNION; then send me an E-Mail Message.

I had originally wanted it to be held on JUL 03, 2010 Saturday in the wonderful state of Iowa; possibly in the city of Osceola where the previous HESTON FAMILY REUNION took place 50 years earlier to the day on JUL 03, 1960 where 350 HESTON FAMILY descendants gathered for the Second Annual National HESTON FAMILY REUNION headed by that HESTON genealogist, John P. HESTON. Our cousin, Mr. HESTON, was the Editor and Publisher of the HESTON HISTORIAN newsletters and directories written from 1957 to 1961. He also organized the three Annual National HESTON Family Reunions: 1959 in Pennsylvania, 1960 in Iowa, and 1961 in California. Now 50 years later, I am working on this special genealogy hobby for the HESTON FAMILY.

But that date being only 5 weekends away; I have decided to delay it until AUG 7, 2010 Saturday to give us enough time to plan this event.

The Second Annual National HESTON FAMILY REUNION was held last year on JUN 20, 2009 Saturday at the Fraternal Order of Police, Bucks County Lodge #53, 1058 Mill Creek Rd in Wycombe, Pennsylvania AND then moved to the Wrightstown Village Library in Wrightstown, Pennsylvania due to the rainy weather. After that some of us stayed to visit the Wrightstown Quaker Burial Grounds also in Wrightstown, Pennsylvania. The HESTON FAMILY REUNION was a wonderful success with 34 HESTON cousins in attendance; 28 of whom initially gathered in Wycombe and then after we moved the REUNION to Wrightstown 6 more HESTON Family Cousins joined us for a total of 34 HESTON FAMILY cousins. Special thanks to Pat Heston Horn for her wonderful presentation of HESTON FAMILY History which her father, John P. Heston, began in the 1950's and 1960's AND which Pat has continued working on for many years herself. Also, a special thanks to Don Owens and Dave Heston for coordinating the REUNION.

The First Annual National HESTON FAMILY REUNION which was held in Newton, Kansas (located near Wichita, Kansas) on JUL 26, 2008 Saturday was a wonderful success with approximately 20 - 25 HESTON cousins in attendance. Exact count will be determined later by REUNION photographs and response from those in attendance. Special thanks to Gail Jones for coordinating the REUNION and to Dave Heston and his mother Grace Heston with whom I got my ride from Motel 6 in nearby Wichita.

Plan now to attend this year for the 50th Anniversary of that previous REUNION in 1960... All interested HESTON cousins need to spread the word AND start efforts to make this a reality. Thank you.

2010 HESTON Family Reunion CoOrdinator Needed

Would you like to be our 2010 HESTON FAMILY Reunion Co-Ordinator for for the Third Annual National HESTON Family Reunion to be held in IOWA on this summer? I sure could use the help from someone who lives near the area and knows it well enough to help get this HESTON FAMILY Reunion moving to be a success for all of us HESTON cousins.

I had originally wanted it on JUL 03, 2010 Saturday in the wonderful state of Iowa; possibly in the city of Osceola where the previous HESTON Family Reunion took place 50 years earlier to the day on JUL 03, 1960 where 350 HESTON Family descendants gathered for the Second Annual National HESTON Family Reunion headed by that HESTON genealogist, John P. HESTON.

But that date being only 5 weekends away; I have decided to delay it until AUG 7, 2010 Saturday.

I didn't know if I had signed the guestbook before or not. So, that's why I am doing it now. I gave all of the information of my husband's when you had the reunion in Newton and we came down and attended that.
We would like to go to the one in Iowa as long as it will be in an air conditioned place.

I have been given a Book which was from L.A. Heston and wife to his daughter, Eunice in 1911 in Norwalk, Ohio. Then given to my Grandmother, Hallie Lehnert to my Mother, Ruth Lehnert in 1935. My Mother gave it to me (Yvonne Mroski) and my sister (Gloria Mroski) in 1961. Because I have no children, I was going to give it to my Mother's sister, Gloria Lehnert Carson to pass on to her boys. I have just begun my family tree. I live in Navarre, Florida. E-Mail YJC@att.net

I am interested in the history and newsletters concerning the Heston Family. I was born in Osceola, Iowa in 1962. My
father, Franklin, passed away in 1977 and I have not been back to Iowa in quite some time so attending a reunion will be unlikely for me. My husband is a pastor and we do not get away on weekends much. Thank you for the leadership and research that you have given. I read through every page today (my first time to discover this site). I found it fascinating and informative.

To my HESTON Family Cousins,

2010 HESTON Family Reunion clarification on dates

Oh, yes, it is now 2010. The Third Annual National HESTON Family Reunion to be held THIS summer on JUL 03, 2010 Saturday in Iowa where the previous HESTON Family Reunion took place 50 years earlier on JUL 03, 1960 where 350 HESTON Family descendants gathered for the Second Annual National HESTON Family Reunion headed by that HESTON genealogist, John P. HESTON.

We are looking for some HESTON Family cousins to step forward and volunteer their efforts to hold the Third Annual National HESTON Family Reunion somewhere in the State of Iowa; either in the city of Osceola, Dubuque, Des Moines, Sioux City, or anywhere else in Iowa.

Earlier LAST year The Second Annual National HESTON Family Reunion was held on JUN 20, 2009 Saturday in Wycombe and Wrightstown, Pennsylvania. That HESTON Family Reunion was a success with 34 HESTON cousins in attendance.

Plan now to attend THIS year for the 50th Anniversary of the previous Reunion in 1960... All interested HESTON cousins need to spread the word AND start efforts to make this a reality. Thank you.--- MJB

To my HESTON Family Cousins,

Plans have begun for the Third Annual National HESTON Family Reunion to be held next summer on JUL 03, 2010 Saturday in the wonderful state of Iowa; possibly in the city of Osceola where the previous HESTON Family Reunion took place 50 years earlier to the day on JUL 03, 1960 where 350 HESTON Family descendants gathered for the Second Annual National HESTON Family Reunion headed by that HESTON genealogist, John P. HESTON.

We are looking for one, two, or three HESTON Family cousins to step forward and volunteer their efforts to hold the Third Annual National HESTON Family Reunion somewhere in the State of Iowa; either in the city of Osceola OR in any of the other cities such as Dubuque (where I, Martin J. Bellard, lived in from 1980 to 1982), Des Moines, or Sioux City, or anywhere else in Iowa.

Earlier this year The Second Annual National HESTON Family Reunion was held on JUN 20, 2009 Saturday in Wycombe, Pennsylvania AND then moved to the Wrightstown Village Library in Wrightstown, Pennsylvania due to the rainy weather. That HESTON Family Reunion was a wonderful success with 34 HESTON cousins in attendance; 28 of whom initially gathered in Wycombe and the Reunion moved to Wrightstown where 6 more HESTON Family Cousins joined us for a total of 34 HESTON Family cousins.

Hi Ron and Sherry Heston,

Thanks for signing the HESTON Guestbook on 2009-10-14 with your Lineage.

I found a Clyde M Heston in the 1930 United States Federal Census in Belvue (spelling of city questionable), Pottawatomie (County), Kansas, born about 1919, age 11, the son of Marshall D Heston, age 58 and Eunice M Heston, age 52 with four other children Harold M Heston, age 22, Orvilla R Heston, age 18, Ralph D Heston, age 15, and Esther M Heston age 13. There is enough similarities with the Heston Family on the 1930 Census AND your Heston Family in the Guestbook entry which means that it probably is from your Heston Family Lineage.

If true, then resubmit a new Guestbook entry with reference to the details found in 1930 US Census. Be sure to specify the US Census data listed above.

your Heston cousin,
Martin J. Bellard

Hi Catherine Heston Terrell,

Thanks for signing the HESTON Guestbook with your Lineage. I have revised your lineage to make it easier to read on the Guestbook. See below.

Here are the generations of descent from Zebulon HESTON and Dorothy HUTCHINSON which include the missing 2nd generation which was not listed in your HESTON Family Lineage in your Guestbook Entry dated 2009-10-13.

Also, the generations are listed one per line from the past to the present to make it easier to read; consistant with other HESTON Family Lineages in the Guestbook. Are the dates you have listed all birthdates? I know two of them are (1733 and 1768). Thank you.

Being a Heston we found this web site and were simply interested in letting you know we were here.

My father was Clyde George Heston. My grandpa is David Marshall Heston who lived in Kansas much of his life and passed away in April of 1969. It's my understanding that he came to Kansas from Harrison County Iowa.

"I stopped by the FOP Lodge Wycombe in the afternoon because I live close by, thought the Heston family might want to see the preview of a film that is being produced locally on General John Lacey, whose great uncle was Zebulon Heston. We postponed a film shoot over at Tyler Park in Newtown, PA due to the weather. I found the FOP Lodge empty. I figured your event was cancelled due to the weather."

P.S. from Martin J. Bellard:

The Second Annual National HESTON Family Reunion was held last week on JUN 20, 2009 Saturday at the Fraternal Order of Police, Bucks County Lodge #53, 1058 Mill Creek Rd in Wycombe, Pennsylvania AND then moved to the Wrightstown Village Library in Wrightstown, Pennsylvania due to the rainy weather. After that some of us stayed to visit the Wrightstown Quaker Burial Grounds also in Wrightstown, Pennsylvania.

The HESTON Family Reunion was a wonderful success with 34 HESTON cousins in attendance; 28 of whom initially gathered in Wycombe and then after we moved the Reunion to Wrightstown 6 more HESTON Family Cousins joined us for a total of 34 HESTON Family cousins.

Special thanks to Pat Heston Horn for her wonderful presentation of HESTON Family History which her father, John P. Heston, began in the 1950's and 1960's AND which Pat has continued working on for many years herself.

Also, a special thanks to Don Owens and Dave Heston for coordinating the Reunion.

If any one knows if there are any direct descendants of Brigadier General John Lacey, then please let me know by E-Mail message. Yes, this film about General John Lacey sounds like it will be very interesting. Maybe, we could include it next year's HESTON Family Reunion in Iowa. --- MJB

I am very interested. My dad doesn't know or tell me much about our family. Would LOVE to make the reunion but don't think that I will be able to with the late notice. Is there a yearly reunion?

We are not sure if we fit into this line of the Heston Family as there is so much limited information at this time. We are very interested in finding out if we are part of the Hestons.

My name is Richard Heston. I currently reside in Melbourne, FL. Born In West Virginia in 1960, my mother is Janet Lee Schellinburg Heston, born in West Virginia who is currently 77, brother James Lee Heston Jr., born 1959, sister Jan Carole Heston born 1958; all of which reside within Florida and got the postcard regarding the family reunion. Would love to see the family tree extensively. Not sure of whether or not I will be able to attend the family reunion, but am interested in the geneology and family tree.

thank you.

I am Heston family descendant. My late father was John Larson Heston, son of Lorenzo "Lon" Heston and Ruth Heston. John was married to my mother, Shirlene Gaines Heston, nee Shirlene Mae Gaines, who is the daughter of Richard and Lorene Gaines. I am not well versed in family history, but was aware that my roots trace back to Zebulon Heston. I have seen a partial family tree, but it was old and incomplete.

Warmest regards to all, Don Owens, Lancaster, PA

To Donald P Owens,

Here is the answer which I received from Pat (Heston) Horn:

Sunday, March 22, 2009 10:08 AM

I have no birthdate on the Samuel Derrickson who married Sarah W. Heston, born between 1796 and 1805, Blockley Twp, Philadelphia, PA, to Abraham Heston and Hannah Hughes, who had married first _____ Suplee. Sarah W. Heston and Samuel Derrickson married 6 Dec 1832 and had the following known children:

1. Abraham H. Derrickson, b 1834, m Maggie Bell.
2. Samuel D. Derrickson, b 28 Jan 1836; d 22 Jul 1838.
3. Thomas W. Derrickson, b 27 Aug 1837; d 29 Dec 1837.
4. Elizabeth Ann Derrickson, b 22 Jun 1841; d 28 May 1843.
5. Henry B. "Harry" Derrickson, b 18 May 1844.
6. Charles Theodore Derrickson, b 11 Oct 1846.
7. Mary Shuster Derrickson, 15 Oct 1850.

The only children of these children that I have are the children of Abraham H. Derrickson and Maggie Bell:

Thomas H. Derrickson, b Jul 1856.
John B. Derrickson, b Oct 1858.

This information was taken directly from the Kirk Family Genealogy by M. S. Roberts. I've looked in other databases but can find no further information on the surname of Derrickson - strange. I did see the surname spelled as Derickson - but these did not appear to fit at all.

Take care, Pat Heston Horn

Martin and Pat, I found this note that Pat wrote to Elizabeth May, in Jan of '05. It helps somewhat, but also confuses things. I would love to know what is the source of her data.
I also would like to know if anyone else in the Heston / Derrickson line have any further info they can share.

Heston, b@1805, Blockley Twp, Philadelphia Co, PA; who m 06Dec1832 Samuel Derrickson. Samuel & Sarah had 7 children together, 4 of whom grew to adulthood & the 5th of which was Henry B. 'Harry' Derrickson, b 18May1844. The others who survived were (1) Abraham H. Derrickson, b 27Apr1834, who m a Maggie Bell; (6) Charles Theodore Derrickson, b 11Oct1846 & (7) Mary Shuster Derrickson, b 15Oct1850. Abraham & Maggie had 2 known children: (1) Thomas H. Derrickson, b Jul1856 & John B. Derrickson, b Oct1858. Hope this helps! Pat Heston Horn

...... NOTE: H.B. DERRICKSON is either the son or grandson of Samuel DERRICKSON and Sarah HESTON. If we know when Samuel DERRICKSON and H.B. DERRICKSON were born; then it would help to confirm how H.B. DERRICKSON is related to Samuel DERRICKSON.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
P. S. specifically to Donald P OWENS:

Please write an entry to the HESTON Family Guestbook with birthdates for the generations from you back as far as you know. This will help us determine approximately the time that Samuel DERRICKSON and Sarah HESTON AND H.B. DERRICKSON and ------ SHOESTER were born; so we can see if there is enough time to fit another generation in between Samuel DERRICKSON and H. B. DERRICKSON.

(continued from previous----) The connection between Sarah Heston and Samuel Derrickson, and the next generation is what is puzzling me. If anyone in that line or any other line can help me out, I will be very grateful. I, and some of my family would love to come to the reunion. We live quite close by compared to some of you. But I don't want to go to someone else's party, if we are not related.
My grandmother, (Hanna) was sure we were related, and named one of her son's (my uncle), 'Edward Heston'. Those in the family I have been able to contact, have lost or forgotten any data that she passed to them. I will be glad to talk to anyone who has any information, however small or speculative, about this. I am very glad i found this site. Thank you, all of you who have made it possible.

My Great Uncle Floyd Heston did a great deal of research on the family history. You may know of him even though he has been deceased many years.

To my HESTON Cousins,

The First Annual National HESTON Family Reunion which was held in Newton, Kansas (located near Wichita, Kansas) on JUL 26, 2008 Saturday was a wonderful success with approximately 20 - 25 HESTON cousins in attendance. Exact count will be determined later by Reunion photographs and response from those in attendance. Special thanks to Gail Jones for coordinating the Reunion and to Dave Heston and his mother Grace Heston with whom I got my ride from Motel 6 in nearby Wichita.

Plans have been made for the Second Annual National HESTON Family Reunion to be held in Wrightstown, PA on the 3rd Saturday in JUN 2009. This is where Zebulon and Dorothy HESTON lived for many years in the early 1700's and was also the location of a previous HESTON Family Reunion in 1959 led by John P. HESTON. This occasion will celebrate the 325th Anniversary of Zebulon HESTON's arrival in America in 1684 AND the 50th Anniversary of that previous Reunion in 1959. Plan now to attend next year. --- MJB

YES, I'm a Heston family descendant, "gen ten":

1st. Zebulon & Dorothy Hutchinson
2nd. Zebulon II & Elizabeth Buckman
3th. Zebulon III & Sarah Burgess
4th. Mahlon & Jane Smith
5th. Zebulon V & Esther Goodwin
6th. Elisha & Sarah Martin
7th. Abiah & Florence Waldron
8th. Charles & Rachael Nichols
9th. Frank & Grace Wilbur
10th. David (c'est moi!)

I've been doing research on and off for years, but have neglected the Hestons. Concentrated on Florence Waldron--Wow! What a gold mine! All sorts of interesting ancestors, and a long bushy family tree that jumps the pond and seems to go on and on.

My late uncle John Temple Heston was involved with Pat Heston Horn's father in co-editing the Heston Historian. He was the "cover boy" on HH issue #3. I've inherited all of Uncle John's notes and I'm just starting to look at them after a(nother) decade of neglect.

Reunion: I'd love to. Only thing that could keep me away would be a prior obligation--and I've got one, a family wedding (Wilbur, not Heston) that conflicts with not one but both of the candidate weekends. Drat! It's the only thing on my summer calendar too.

I believe it is Bathsheba for two reasons.

1) When tracing her father Edward Warner Heston, documents spell it Bathsheba.

2) Her maternal grandmother was also Bathsheba.

If anyone has any information on John, husband to Bathsheba, or Jonathan Dickinson, father to John Dickinson, I would appreciate the information. Thank you all.

I had noticed one other thing after I had posted the Guestbook reply to your (Renee's) message. Pat (Heston) Horn spells her name with an "e" as in "Bethsheba"; while you (Renee) spelled her name with an "a" as in "Bathsheba". I do not know which is correct; or if you(Renee) or Pat had done a typographical error. If you (Renee) know anything about this, then let me know. Thank you. MJB

According to Pat (Heston) Horn's research of the HESTON Family, the following is known about Bathsheba HESTON, the 3rd child of Edward Warner Heston and Mary Griffith, who married John Dickinson:

(3) Bethsheba Elizabeth Heston, b 31 Dec 1772, Hestonville, Blockley Twp, Philadelphia Co, PA; d 04 Oct 1847, m John Dickinson, b@ 1767; son of Jonathan Dickinson. Had known children.

This is part of the information for the HESTON Family History which Pat (Heston) Horn has sent to me to put on this HESTON Family Website. Only the 4th HESTON Generation is left to be added to the HESTON Family History Link. Bathsheba HESTON is on the 4th HESTON Generation.

HESTON Family Reunions for 2007 and beyond:

I need help from any HESTON cousin to plan these special events starting in 2007.

I have been building this HESTON FAMILY ASSOCIATION Website since Jul 2002. Building this HESTON Website and writing HESTON Family Newsletters keeps me busy. I need your help (any HESTON cousin). Let me know if you can plan our Reunions. Plese send me an E-Mail Message.

RESULTS: During 2001 AND 2002, I tried setting up a HESTON FAMILY REUNION here in San Antonio, Texas; but was unsuccessful due to running out of time to properly plan for it. Let US (and I do mean US) start NOW to plan for the 2007 HESTON FAMILY REUNION. Read my three entries on the HESTON message board dated OCT 24, 2002. Also, on this website, I have written a paragraph (number 3) in the DEC 2002 edition - now completed - of the HESTON FAMILY NEWSLETTER - ONLINE AT ROOTSWEB.COM, specifically about REUNIONS. Thank You in Advance.

Have have been asked to provide more information regarding my grandfather Francis O. Heston in effort to determine if I fit within this lineage.
My grandfather was born Francis O Heston, I believe in Virginia on Nov 28th 1991 he died Fec 2 1991. He was married to Verna L Heston. They lived in Iowa.
His father was a Frank Heston Taylor? His mother was Grace
Hartson. They had several children before Frank Died. He died of a car accident. The children were then sent to live in ophanages. Grace Hartson then remarried and had other children.
I know that my great grandfather was adopted. So if anyone can help me out. It would be great! I was in touch with someone at one time in 2000 or 2001 about this, but I have lost most of my notes.

"Surnames: HESTON HASTINGS HUGHES"

"Looking for any connections to the Heston surname in County Mayo, Ireland. My ancestor was married as Michael 'Heston' in 1826 in Westport, County Mayo, Ireland, but later went by the surname Hastings. He had one grandson that retained the old family name in his middle name Houston 'Heston' Hughes. The family move to Liverpool during the famine and left there before 1855, although one or more of the Hastings children may have stayed, but I'm not 100% certain. I do know there has been references to Hestons in Liverpool and would like to make contact with anyone researching Hestons back to Co. Mayo."

There are some Irish HESTON immigrants (one or more) who came in the 1800' also, but most of today's HESTON descendants in the United States of America and probably also Canada can trace their HESTON line all the way back to Zebulon HESTON from England who immigrated to Colonial America in 1684.

The First Snail Mail Edition of the HESTON Family Newsletter, VOL. 1 - NO. 1 - - - MAY 2006 finally went out in the mail at the end of AUG 2006.

I was performing a search on the web and saw your site. Since my husband and I don't come across many Heston's I thought I would log-in. My husbands father was born in Toronto Canada, and his parents re-located to New Jersey. I don't think we are related, but I just though I would email you anyway.

Mary Heston, born 1808 in Ohio, died 1881 in Harrison County, MO, is probably from our Heston family, because of when and where she was born. The descendants of Zebulon Heston and Dorothy Hutchinson were already moving into Ohio by the early 1800's. Write to me at my E-Mail Address to continue the discussion about HESTON research and the HESTON FAMILY ASSOCIATION.

I've decided it's about time I dusted off the original research done by my family, and later my wife, so that I can share what I have with others and seek out the pieces that I'm missing.

I'm originally from South Bend, IN and am now living in Philomont, VA.

I'm looking forward to "meeting" with other "cousins" and by the way there's a Heston Tartan as well.

SARAH HESTON AND JOHN BALLARD (or BELLARD) FAMILY CHAPTER

I took the big step in deciding to rename the FAMILY CHAPTER that I am descended from to read the SARAH HESTON AND JOHN BALLARD (or BELLARD) FAMILY CHAPTER to demonstrate the growing knowledge that my ancestor's last could have been BELLARD or BALLARD. Many of my other BELLARD cousins strongly feel that his name was John BELLARD.

I am a direct descendant of Zebulon Heston and Dorothy Hutchinson. My aunt (by marriage) Wyoma Heston, completed an exhaustive book several years ago totally dedicated to the Heston family tree. She gave me a copy of the book but over the years I have misplaced it. If I come upon it I'll be sure to let you know. My last knowledge of where Wyoma and her husband Joe were living was somewhere in Texas. Any Heston relatives out there w/any questions or comments feel free to e-mail me. Thanks!

I think that you contacted me some time ago asking about the name of Heston. I am interested in one Heston O. Kyle. His first name was Heston, death, 1932. You had replied back to me and now I can't remember if you had any Kyle names listed in the (inter-marriage) lists or not. Could you let me know this fact. We could be related to the Ballards also. If none of this is true, I guess that I don't need to be a member of this clan, although it is interesting. Bob Kyle

I am decended from Zebulon Heston. My GGGGrandmother married a Hollopeter but they changed their family name to her family's name, Heston, because their children were being teased at school. They lived in Iowa. My Grandparents moved to Minnesota when my mother was 3. They had 4 daughters, all but my mother are now gone, and so will end this branch of the "Heston" name in our family.

HESTON FAMILY REUNIONS

In addition to working on the Newsletters, the Membership, and this Website, I have tried unsuccessfully to set up the HESTON Family Reunion for the past several years. I have come to realize that it is difficult to manage all of these leadership positions by myself. I have decided that starting with last year - 2004, to delegate the leadership position for setting up the HESTON Family Reunion to any HESTON Family descendant who wishes to organize the reunion.

To encourage someone to volunteer for this position, let me state that this responsibility shall be for one year’s reunion only. If any volunteer wishes to arrange the reunion for a second or third year, then he or she can volunteer during the current reunion if no one else has stepped forward to take charge of the next year’s reunion. If any HESTON Family descendant wishes to do this, then please send me an E-Mail Message. Let us see what we can do for this year - 2005.

Hey Martin, Just thought I'd leave a note to let you know that I am still around. I've been so busy lately. I am working on family trees for both sides of my family and only have a small amount of time each week to work on them. I would like to know if there will be a reunion for the Heston clan anytime soon. Please let me know. Gail

Thank you, Robert E. MERCER for signing the HESTON Family Association Guestbook. You are probably the cousin of Joan (MERCER) HERREN, a HUTCHINSON Family descendant, who gave her the information which filled in the connection between Dorothy STORR (wife of Thomas HUTCHINSON) and Stor/Storr HUTCHINSON, her ancestor.

The information that I have about Dorothy HUTCHINSON, the daughter of Thomas HUTCHINSON and Dorothy STORR came from Joan (MERCER) HERREN and from Pat (HESTON) HORN. Joan's information is in her Guestbook entry dated 2005-02-01. And here is the information which I received from Pat on JAN 12, 2005 Wednesday in the History of the First Four HESTON Generations, Part 1, which will eventually be on this HESTON Family Association Website:

"Dorothy Storr Hutchinson, b 1677, Hull, West Riding, Yorkshire, England; d 1746, Middletown MM, Upper Makefield Twp, Bucks Co, PA; dau of Thomas Hutchinson and Dorothy Storr. Thomas Hutchinson, b May 1640, Beverly, Holderness, Yorkshire, England; d 1689, Burlington, Burlington Co, NJ; m 29 3rd mo 1668, Hull MM, Dorothy Storr, b 1648, Owstwick, Yorkshire, England; d@1689; dau of Marmaduke Storr of Owstwick and Dorothy _____. Dorothy, her brothers, Thomas, Ebenezer, and John and her father, Thomas Hutchinson came to America on the Welcome with William Penn in 1682. It is unknown whether her mother and her sister, Hannah, accompanied them or remained in England. William Penn granted Thomas Hutchinson about 600 acres in Burlington Co, NJ to settle on."

Thank you, Joan (MERCER) HERREN, a HUTCHINSON Family descendant, for signing the HESTON Family Association Guestbook.

Here is a special note to my HESTON Family Cousins. The HUTCHINSON Family descendants are COUSINS to the HESTON Family descendants for which this HESTON Family Website is all about.

Thomas HUTCHINSON married Dorothy STORR in 1640 and they had at least two children. Their daughter Dorothy HUTCHINSON married Zebulon HESTON in 1698. And their son John HUTCHINSON married Joyce VENEABLES.

If any HESTON Family descendants wish to correspond with our HUTCHINSON cousins, then send an E-Mail Message to Joan (MERCER) HERREN as she has requested. If any of you HESTON Family Cousins know more about the HUTCHINSON and STORR Families, then please correspond with Joan.

Joan, please stay in contact with the HESTON Family Association and our HESTON Family Website. If, when ever, we may have a HESTON Family Reunion, then of course you and any other HUTCHINSON descendants would be welcome as guests. After all, we are all COUSINS. And if I eventually get the First Edition of the Snail Mail Version of the HESTON Family Newsletter published, then I would need your Snail Mail Address to send you a free copy.

Hi, Everyone - Just want to let you know I have agreed to become an assistant to Martin Bellard to help him in everyway I can to make Heston connections and this website come to its true fruition. My Dad, John Penrod Heston, was the chief Editor of the Heston Historian Newspapers done in the late 1950s and early 1960s and was instrumental in bringing about some great Heston Reunions in those years. It'll be difficult to resurrect those feats but maybe we can have some success if we'll all pitch in and help.

Who Are the Parents of John W. HESTON (1797 - 1853)?

I am looking for information about John W. HESTON, born 11 JUN 1797 in Hestonville, PA, so I can trace his ancestry back to Zebulon HESTON and Dorothy HUTCHINSON. I feel very strongly that he is indeed a descendant of our English Quaker ancestor Zebulon HESTON because of when and where he was born. I originally thought that John W. HESTON might be the son of Edward Warner HESTON (1745 - 1824), founder of Hestonville. But when I got the complete list of Edward's children from both marriages, I knew that I had look somewhere else to find John's parents.

Here is what I also know about John W. HESTON. He married Esther BURD. He had at least one son Elisha Burd HESTON (1830 - 1896). He died 24 SEP 1853 in Pine Grove Mills, PA. If anyone knows who the parents of John W. HESTON are, then let us know. Thank you.

I think I'm a descendant.

I don't know my generational history from Zebulon, I only know back to my grandfather with certainty. I'll ask my grandma when I'm home next week. I seem to remember John Heston being mentioned and I know some Randall's that live nearby are distant relations.

Here's what I know:
1 Mahlon Heston
+ Barbara Jane Long
2 John Heston b: 03 FEB 1866 d: 22 FEB 1945
+ Lauretta Crew b: 17 JUL 1872 d: 20 DEC 1952
Roy Crew Heston - Grandpa married Luella Frost
Lee Roy Heston - Dad - Married Sally Grooms
Matthew Lee Heston - Me

My family farm is near Kensington, OH 44427. I live in Dallas TX suburb now.

I just stumbled onto this website and was curious about my family history. I didn't see a graphical family tree of the known descendants or branches of the Heston family. If you know for certain how I'm related, please email me at mlh8@yahoo.com.

Thanks,
Matt

In reference to the previous Guestbook entry by Warren Burdsall REED about Isaac HESTON being the missing link between Edward HESTON (his father) and Sarah (HESTON) SMITH (his daughter), I have found some information which shows this.

According to the HESTON message board entry (at Rootsweb): Re: Edward W. HESTON's Children by Deborah RIDER on 19 FEB 2004, Isaac HESTON is the son of Edward Warner HESTON and his second wife Sarah HALL. Isaac HESTON (1795 - 1870) and his wife Mary Ann JONES (1799 - 1848) had seven children. One of these children Sarah H. HESTON (born 1830) married Robert SMITH.

Yes I am related to Zebulon. Edward Heston would be my 5th Greatgrand father. My mother has visited the old buring ground at Wrightstown. She said the last time she was there the headstone had been stollen? I am afraid my information is confusing. I seem to be missing the first generation between Edward and Robert Smith. I have the records from Sara Heston and Robert Smith up through today. William Harold - Emma Bernice/Elisha Burdsall - Ruth Allen/Floyd Reed - Warren Reed. I have a copy of a letter from Iasac Heston to his daughter Sara Heston Smith, I would guess that Iasac is the missing link, Edward's son? Any information I have you are welcome to copies of.

My great-grandfather was Zebulon Heston who was born in Virginia and moved to Ohio. His wife was, I believe, Mary Sneed. Their children, that I know of, were Sue, Delbert, Thomas,and I can't recall the other one. I am just beginning to research this and if any of this information appears in your records, please let me know.

Here are my four and more generations:

Zebulon Heston Jr. - Elizabeth Buckman
Zebulon Heston III - Sarah Burgess
John Heston - Elizabeth Randall
Hannah Heston - Martin Snider
Adaline Florence Snider - George Alexander Burns

I have a large database with fairly good documentation that I would be more than happy to share with my fellow Heston cousins. Wondering if anyone has any photos of our Heston Family? We have one photo that we believe to be our Hannah Heston with either her husband Martin Snider or her father John Heston, possibly taken in Mahaska County, Iowa. John was listed as a Tanner on the 1860 census, and the man in the photo is wearing a leather apron with lots of wheelbarrows all around and the paddle wheel of the mill can be viewed in the background.

First, yes, I am a HESTON Family descendant. Today, SEP 2, 2003 marks one year since this HESTON FAMILY descendants Guestbook has been Open online here at Rootsweb.Com as part of the HESTON Family Association Website. Many of us HESTON descendants, 19 to be exact, have already signed the Guestbook. Thank you very much. And some of us have taken the next step of signing up as a Member by filling out and sending to me the Application For Membership available at the Membership Link on this Website by e-mail or snail-mail. As of today, there are 9 Members in the HESTON FAMILY ASSOCIATION of whom 5 have signed the Guestbook. Again, thank you very much. I will be corresponding with the 14 other HESTON descendants who have signed the Guestbook inviting them to sign up as a Member. If you read this before I write to you, then feel free to sign up immediately without waiting for a formal invitation from me. Thank you for your patience as I try to catch up with my correspondance.

Second, the long awaited First Edition of the Snail Mail Version of the HESTON FAMILY NEWSLETTER is about half finished. I can now concentrate my time on completing it to send out as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience with me, your Editor, once again.

Third, the HESTON FAMILY REUNION is tentatively scheduled for NOV 8, 2003 Saturday in Dubuque, Iowa. The Reunions Link will be revised with details as they become available. If any one plans to go, then you need to let me know. I will need some help especially from HESTON Family descendants who live in or near Dubuque, Iowa.

By using this Website for Family Newsletters and Family Reunions, we will rekindle the bonds of our HESTON Family.

Yes, First, I am a HESTON Family descendant. This is the end of the 6th month (FEB 2003) since starting this guestbook in SEP 2002. I want to thank those HESTON Family descendants who have signed the guestbook so far. You are an encouragement to all the other HESTON Family descendants who come by this Website, so they too may sign the Guestbook.

Second, I want to say a special thank you to Marcie Smith Garnett for wanting to "to head up a SMITH section for descendants of Zebulon & Dorothy's great-granddaughter, Elizabeth Heston Smith". See her Guestbook entry dated Feb 26, 2003. I have sent her an e-mail message concerning the volunteer position of a Chapter Chief.

Third, I encourage other descendants to volunteer as a Chapter Chief of their line of descendants. For details
on my ideas, read or re-read the DEC 2002 issue of the
ONLINE newsletter at this HESTON FAMILY ASSOCIATION
Website.

Fourth, regarding the SNAIL MAIL VERSION of the HESTON FAMILY NEWSLETTER which was originally planned for JAN 2003, then delayed to FEB 2003 (see the PRESS RELEASE on this Website), is now probably coming out in MAR 2003. My apologies for the delay. I have been working on it these past two months of JAN and FEB with the additional items that will be included in the newsletter besides reprinting the three ONLINE newsletters of OCT, NOV, and DEC 2002.

Fifth, here is the TABLE OF CONTENTS for the soon coming snail mail newsletter:

Zebulon Heston and Elizabeth Buckman
Zebulon Heston and Sarah Burgess
John Heston and Elizabeth Randall

From there on it appears to be:

William J. Heston and Florence Flescher
Wayman L. Heston and Nila Hinsey
Lawrence H. Heston (me)and Joan Piper

Lastly, I don't know how I can participate. I only got interested in this yesterday based on some family tracing my next door neighbor is doing. What would you suggest?

I live in Loudoun County, Virginia where John and Mary
Heston Hirst are buried in the Goose Creek Friends
Cemetery in the Quaker Village of Lincoln. She is the
only Heston buried there. As a child, I attended Goose
Creek Meeting with my Father, but was raised in the
Episcopal Church. It is still a very active Meeting,
drawing members from all over the County.

The earliest Heston I can get back to is William Heston, born 1826, Romney, VA (now WV)served in Civil War 6th WV Inf. Co. I. He married Caroline McGill in 1849 in PA, lived most of his life in Wheeling,WV.He died in McMechan, WV on 16 Dec., 1921. I saw a glimpse of a John Hestin on the 1810 VA census and believe there is some connection. His father is NOT Eber Heston Jr. as reported in the Heston Directory.
