Location of Heaston and Scarborough Families in Doniphan Co., Kansas

Below are the locations of the Heaston and Scarborough families in Doniphan County, Kansas, who had moved there from Ohio. This has been of interest to me as Isabel McKenney was said to be Ioway and these families located on and next the Ioway reserve, along with others from the same area, this after Isabel having married George W. McKenney and being found in Ohio with him in 1850.

The Scarboroughs moved later. Mark Scarborough’s sister, Rhoda, was married in 1835 to another George W. McKenney b. 1816 who would have been a close relation of our George W. McKenney Sr., but was not his father. Mark Scarborough b. 1808 in Belmont, Ohio, moved with his family to Jefferson, Andrew County, Missouri, via Indiana, by 1859.

Mark’s sibling, Rhoda, and her husband George W. McKenney b. 1816, had also moved to Missouri and were living in Haw Creek, Morgan County with son Francis and his new wife, Barbara Miller. Francis reported in his bio that he and his wife were traveling through the Missouri frontier looking for a place to live. They settled in Indiana, where, as with the Mark Scarborough family, they had also been living just previous the move to Missouri.

By 1865 the Mark Scarborough family was at Iowa, Doniphan, Kansas.

By the late 1840s the Sheaffers/Shaffers and Bartows (related, Mary Bartow married Robert Eugene McKenney and Jeremiah Shaffer married Elizabeth Bartow) and most of the McKenneys had moved to Iowa. In 1850 the Heastons were still in Harrison County, Ohio, but by 1851 are said to have been in Holt County, Missouri. By 1857 they were residing on a homestead in the southwest quarter of section 15, Wolf River township, in Doniphan County, Kansas, other members of the Forney family locating instead on the Great Nemaha Reserve in Nebraska.
