Biography of
Daniel Heaston

This gentleman was born in Montgomery County, Ohio, August 9, 1824. His parents moved to Champaign county, in the same State, when Daniel was about four years old, and when he was fifteen years old, again moved, this time to Randolph county, Indiana. After leaving school he became engaged in the fanning-mill business, and continued some four years. From 1851 to 1854 he was engaged in the patent-right business with another man, and part of that time they were traveling. Mr. Heaston returned to Randolph County, Indiana, in 1854, and on the 24th of June, 1855, was married to Miss Susan Monks. Nine children have been born of this union, whose names are subjoined: Adam, Henry C., David D., John O., Samuel P., Sarah M., Mary A., Daniel G., and Cora B.

In the fall of 1855, Mr. Heaston came to this State and county, and has ever since been a citizen of Daviess. He is a farmer and a successful manager. He owns a good place of 160 acres in Union township, and has it well fenced and improved. He was elected justice of the peace in the fall of 1862 when living in Jefferson township, and served four years. In 1872 he was elected to a similar position in Union township, and served two years. In 1878 he was elected for four years to the same office, but refused to server longer after the adoption of the township organization law in 1881.
