Descendants of Thomas Payton
Generation No. 1
1. THOMAS1 PAYTON
Notes for THOMAS PAYTON:
From Greg Dunn-email 3 April 2003
The names of Thomas and Catherine and a sibling relationship between Patrick, James, and Margaret are assumed from the naming conventions the three used for their children (and from the three having settled simultaneously, next door to each other, in Downie Township in the 1830's). It was typical in Irish families for the first son to be named for the father's father, the first daughter for the father's mother or the mother's mother, the second son for the mother's father, the second daughter for the remaining grandmother, the third son for the father, the third daughter for the mother. Both Patrick and James Payton named their first sons Thomas, and Margaret Payton named her second son Thomas. Patrick's first daughter, James's third daughter, and Margaret's second daughter were named Catherine.
The three Payton siblings emigrated from Ireland with their spouses to Downie Twp, Perth Co, Ontario in about 1834. James and Margaret moved on to Iowa, while Patrick remained in Downie

Notes for JOHN R HERRON:
Emmetsburg, Palo Alto, Iowa
Wednesday, Dec 11, 1912
John HERRON of the firm MENTON & HERRON, who have published the BooneDemocrat during the past fifteen years or more, spent Saturday and Sundaywith numerous relatives in this locality. He is a cousin of M.F. BRENNAN,T.B. and W.H. WALSH, and ohter members of the families named. Mr HERRON visited Emmetsburg about sixteen years ago. He has built up a good business at Boone and finds it difficult to be away from home for any length of time. He favored the Democrat with a fraternal call while in town. The Boone Democrat is one of the best weekly newspapers in the Tenth district.
From History of Boone Co, Iowa
New York & Chicago: The S.J. Clarke Publishing Co. 1902
John R Herron
In the promotion and conservation of advancement in all the normal lines of human progress and civilization, there is no factor which has exercised a more potent influence than the press, which is both the director and the mirror of public opinion. Iowa has been signally favored in the character of its newspapers, which have been vital, enthusiastic and progressive, ever aiming to advance the interests of this favored section of the Union, to aid in laying fast and sure the foundations of an enlightened commonwealth, to further the ends of justice and to uphold the banner of the Hawkeye state. In a compilation of this nature, then, it is clearly incumbent that due recognition be accorded the newspaper press and in this connection we are glad to mention The Boone County Democrat and its proprietor, John R Herron. Mr. Herron was born in Des Moines township, Boone county, Iowa, March 19, 1874, and is a son of Richard and Sabina (Payton) Herron. The paternal grandfather also bore the name of Richard and was a native of Ireland. Crossing the Atlantic to America at an early date, he located in Canada and followed the occupation of farming. His wife bore the maiden name of Mary Henneberry. In their family were four children, three sons and a daughter: Richard; Mary, the wife of T. McDermott, of Eagle Grove, Iowa; William of Missouri Valley, Iowa; and John, deceased. The father of our subject was also a native of the Emerald Isle and when he sought a home beyond the Atlantic, took up his abode in Stratford, Ontario, in 1847, making his home there until 1865. In the meantime, in the year 1858, he wedded Sabina Payton, a daughter of Patrick Payton who was born in Ireland but in the '30s removed to Canada and there spent his remaining days. His wife bore the maiden name of Hogan and died when her daughter, Mrs. Herron, was quite young. In the family were eight children: Catherine, Bernard, Thomas, Jane, Sabina, Ann, Alice and Margaret. While residing in Canada Mr. Herron engaged in farming and in 1865 he came to Iowa, residing for two months at Cedar Rapids, after which he removed to Boone. The railroad at that time extended only to Nevada and there were but two houses in what is now the city of Boone. Mr. Herron and his family took up their abode in the little hamlet where they remained until 1869 when they settled upon a farm in Des Moines township, three and one-half miles southeast of the city. It was there that our subject was born. The family resided continuously upon the farm until the spring of 1886, when the parents removed to Boone, where they yet make their home. Their children are Mary, deceased, and John R. In the common schools John R Herron began his education, attending the parochial schools of Boone, and also the high school of this city. His connection with journalistic work began when he was sixteen years of age, in the capacity of a printer's devil in the office of the Boone County Democrat. There he remained, winning advancement from time to time until he became the owner of a half interest in the plant, purchasing this on the 1st of January, 1899. He had previously served as an apprentice and local editor. His partner in the enterprise is W.F. Menton, the partnership designated by the style of Herron & Menton. They are both wide-awake, enterprising young business men and are publishing a journal which is creditable to the city and which is ever found as the champion of movements and measures for the general good. Socially Mr Herron is connected with the Woodmen of the World, the Fraternal Choppers of America and other social and fraternal organizations.
