HEAVENER

David HEAVENER

Born in New York in 1804. His wife Susan HULSE was also from New York according to US Census records. The 1850 Census has them farming in Sheshequin, Bradford County, PA. as does the 1860 and 1870 census'.

I received an email and attachment from Laura Palmer Hooker on February 27, 2015 who is also a descendant of David and Susan Heavener.  She descends through a daughter, Phebe, who was unknown to me as she married John Palmer prior to the 1850 US Census.  Laura also include a copy of the Pennsylvania certificate of death for Charles A. Heavener, son of David and Susan.  The certificate lists Susan's maiden name as HAULTZ, however Laura states the correct name is HULSE and she is the daughter of Samuel HULSE b. 1785.

I appreciated being contacted by Laura and have included her data in this update to the site.

Sometime before 1880 she married Elias Bradford BALL (his wife had died on April 25, 1878). Three of the HEAVENER children (David, Walter James, and Myrtie) appear on the 1880 Census enumerated with Elias and Sarah.

The obituary in the May 21, 1909 issue of The Waverly Free Press and Tioga County Record states Sarah died on May 14, 1909, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. N. V. Weller, on South Main Street, Athens, PA. She is buried in Sheshequin Valley Cemetery along with Samuel M. HEAVENER.

Walter Sheldon HEAVENER

Born in Scranton, PA on August 21, 1898. He met his wife Genevieve Beatrice WHEELER when the family moved to Johnson City, NY area around 1920. She was the daughter of Hayes Rutherford WHEELER and Mary Ann WILSON. Walter and Genevieve met at home as the Heavener's and Wheeler's had apartments in the same house.

The family lived in Johnson City all of their lives. Walter Sheldon retired from Endicott Johnson after many years of service which allowed him to devote more time to his second profession, bee keeping. Walter Sheldon maintained many hives in the immediate Broome County area. He collected and processed honey which was distributed throughout the Triple Cities. He was also known to make "house calls" to remove a swarm of bees at an anxious home owner's request.

Walter Sheldon died on February 18 1984 in Endicott, New York. His wife, Genevieve Beatrice, died in April 1998 at Port Charlotte, Florida. Both are buried in Riverhurst Cemetery, Endicott, NY.
