1850 census Northampton Co, page 359, Jesse is listed as a farmer with a real estate value of $8,000.

In the 1870 census Belfast , Bushkill Twp, Northampton Co, page 393B Jesse is listed with his wife Margarette and 9 Heckman children. Jesse's age is not recorded correctly in the 1870 census and should be 66 not 58. I am also wondering if the Sarah (age 6) recorded here is a grandchild since there was a Sarah (age 13) listed in the 1850 census.

In the 1880 census Bushkill Twp Northampton Co Pa page 319, Jesse (age 76) is living with his wife Rebecca (age 64), son James (age 22) daughters Maria (age 19) and Ellavesta (age 18). Jesse is a farmer and all were born in PA.
