My ancestor, Noah Heckathorn seems to have been a traveling man.
From a letter he wrote in applying for a pension for service during the
Civil War he states that he was born in 1832 in Lancaster County, PA. In
1836 they moved to Montgomery County, OH. According to Mapquest by todays
milage it is about 480 miles. I cannot imagine a trip like that in 1836.
He then states that in 1870 they moved to Stark County, Ohio. Which was a
move of about 215 miles.
They they were off to Sedgwick County, KS a move of about about 1000 miles.
I have managed to track from Montgomery County on but cannot get a father
and mother for Noah.
